The machines are 220 VAC - the north american red black represents line one and line two - it makes no difference but one of the cord set wires is black and one is brown. Black to black and brown to red will keep the convention the same. green is always ground.

What colors on electrical cord go with what screw on dryer?

The green is ground and usually connects to the metal side of the dryer.
The white is neutral and connects to the white center post. The black and red on the cord are both 110vt hot lines and connect to the posts on each end. So black to black and red to black/brown should be ok.

I am trying to find the ground wire for this dryer.

On whirlpool (all manufacture) dryers the ground wire is linked to the center terminal with the white wire and attaches to the cabinet grounding all metal on dryer since on panel attaches to the next making the entire cabinet have continuty through the neutral/ground wire.
When connecting 3 wire cord connect the two outside wires to red/black on cord block and center wire to white/center terminal connection on block.
For a 4 wire cord red to red black to black white to white and the green to rear of cabinet/any panel near block

Which colored wires connect to the dryer?

I'm assuming you're referring to the 220 volt power cord. You should have a red, white, black, and green wire in the cord, or you may have 2 black wires and no red. The terminals on the back of the dryer should be marked with L1, L2, N, and GND (or ground)
Connect the white wire to N.
The black and red (or both black) wires connect to L1 and L2 in no particular order.
The green connects to ground which should simply be a screw in the sheet metal on the back of the dryer.
I hope this helps

No electricial input, ON nor OFF on the dryer. Absolutely, no power on the dryer. Check circuit breaker is ON.

Do you have a volt meter? Make sure the cord is correctly connected. Center wire to center terminal on a three wire cord, red and black on outside and white in the middle on a four wire cord with green to case ground.

Just moved and outlet for dryer is different.

Connect the red, black, and white wires of the new cord to where the red, black, and white wires of the original dryer wires are connected to but disconnect the ground wire (green/yellow wire attached to the cabinet) from where the white wire is connected to and connect it instead to the fourth green/yellow wire of the new cord.

Dryer did not come with electrical cord so I bought one.

The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord on your dryer:

The main difference between the 3-wire and 4-wire configuraiton is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wire are terminated on the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

- In a 3-wire configuration, these two wires are connected together via a ground strap at the terminal block.

Terminate the wires at the terminal block by matching the corresponding colors:

WHITE to WHITE (Neutral) 0VAC - Neutral should also have a ground strap attached that grounds it to the equipment cabinet or ground lug.

NOTE: Newer homes built after the year 2000 REQUIRE a 4-wire configuration to be in complaince with the National Electric Code. In addition, some newer appliances may not work correctly without a 4-wire power cord.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you
