No..you need to replace your 3-prong power cord with a new 4-prong power cord. The following link explains how:
It is a requirement that newer homes have the 4-wire outlet configuration. If your home came with this style outlet, you must update the appliance to be within the National Electrical Code specifications.
The main difference is the way the Neutral (WHITE) wire and the Ground (GREEN) wire is installed. The neutral and ground are independent of each other in a 4-wire configuration. Simply put: Ground the green wire to the equipment cabinet or ground lug. Remove any grounding strap that is on the terminal block for the neutral wire. The instructions I provided will explain this.
If you have any questions, please ask. I hope this helps you.

Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.
All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.
