This is actually one of the easiest repairs to make on most dryers.
Unplug the dryer from the wall of course.
At the point where the dryer cord enters the dryer itself there is usually a plate. One screw should hold this plate in place. Remove the screw and pull the plate out (it should only be held in by a couple of tabs). The cord is attached to the power supply with three (or four) terminals. Back the screws out and slide the cord out. Make careful note as to which color goes to which terminal. Usually the black (or red) color goes to the gold screw and the white goes to the silver screw. The green screw holds the ground wire in place which is also usually a green cord.
Once you have done this step then loosen the screws that hold the cord in place on the plate. This fitting should open as you loosen the screws and the cord should pull out easily. Then thread the new cord through the fitting and reverse the process. Just remember to thread the cord through BEFORE you connect the wires so that you don't have to undo your work!
Hope this helps!

Replacing electrical cord


if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Changing power cord from 4 to 3 prong


Hi,

See this link and read the article carefully - if your dryer already has a 4 wire cord, it should be replaced with same type.

Power Suply Cord


If the cord is the ONLY item you need and NOT the terminal block in the dryer, then Home Depot sells replacement cords with a molded plug attached as well as ring lugs on the opposite end for terminating them on the dryer block. You'll need to know if you are using a 3-prong or 4- prong set up in order to get the correct cord. Hope this helps..
