Eletric cord installation

The supply cord on a dryer can be 3 wire or 4 wire, depending on the existing receptacle. All new construction must have 4 wire receptacles for dryer hook ups.
At the back of the dryer you will see a set of three terminals. The outside terminals are for connecting the outside wires of the cord. In a 4wire hook up, the center terminal is for the center, insulated, white wire, the neutral. The bare copper or green wire of the 4wire cord gets connected above these terminals to a lug or stud on the body of the dryer. There may be a strap there. For a 4wire cord connection this strap is connected to the stud only.
The change for a 3wire connection is that the center green wire of the 3wire cord connects to the center of the three power terminals along with the grounding strap from the dryer body above.
