Question about Dryers
The following link explains how to correctly install a 4 prong power cord (US Standard Electric Code) to your appliance:
The main difference between a 3 and 4 prong configuration is the way the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green) wires are installed. In a 4-prong configuration these two wires are independent of each other. If you left the grounding ******** the terminal block (effectively grounding the neutral wire), or wired it incorrectly, you may have damaged the dryer.
Read through the link provided and double check your installation. If you're lucky, you may have just tripped a breaker at the distribution panel, or blown a fuse inside the dryer.
If you need further assistance, please post back with your brand name and model number so I can determine how your dryer is configured.
