Question about Dryers
Yes, you can convert a 3 prong power cord to a 4 prong. The following link explains how:
The main difference is how the neutral (WHITE) wire and the ground (GREEN) wires are connected. In a 4 wire configuration the neutral and ground are independent of each other.
If you have questions, please ask. I hope this helps you.

Please review the following link:
Do you have your power cord wired correctly? Please read through the link thoroughly and confirm the wire color coding and the placement of where you have the wires terminated. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.

SOURCE: 4 power cord to a 3 power cord
You can take off the cord and put a three prong plug for the dryer it will come with 4 wire that connect to the dryer the one that is not coded is the ground wire. when you take off the one you have now it should have a ground connected to it. Or you can get a new receptical to match the one you have now but it would be more expensive. Hope this helped. If not let us know and thankyou for asking.

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.
