Question about Dryers
I paired the white to white, black to black, green to green and skipped the red since no red wire from source. The dryer and control runs but no heat.
The difference between the 4 wire plug and the power source wire is that the plug has and additional seperate ground wire. Basically ttwo legs, a neutral and a ground. Your power source wire only has the two legs and the neutral (the white) which used to act as a ground. Notice that the white (neutral) is hooked up to the ground bar along with the grounds in the panel box. The "correct" thing to do is replace the wire from the panel box with the correct size/amperage wire.

this is the rule of thumb,white always goes on the middle terminal ,the 2 outside terminal wires it does not matter which side they are on,if you can see the red and black wire on the terminal block then match them up,the green wire gets mounted to the cabinet,you should already have a green wire to the cabinet so remove the screw and put both wires there and your done,let me know how you do-mike

The two wires on either side of the power cord are your HOT leads. They are the voltage carrying conductors. These two wires will connect to the terminal block on the RED and BLACK wires. The middle wire is NEUTRAL and goes to the WHITE wire at the terminal block. Now...with a 3-wire configuration you will need to connect a grounding strap to the neutral wire and ground it to the grounding lug of the appliance. The following link explains:
The main difference between 3 and 4 wire configuration is how the neutral and ground wires are installed. In a four wire configuration these two are independent of each other. In a 3 wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together.
If you have any questions about this repair, please ask me. I hope this helps you.

NEVER, put the green ground wire under the same screw or fastener as the white (neutral) wire! It is not Code and the reason is that if the connection becomes loose or gets burned off, you would have an ungrounded 220V-AC circuit that would use YOU or someone else as the path to clear any ground fault situation.
The correct way is to mount a separate Grounding termination with either the factory green gronding screw (if provided) or by drilling and tapping a hole next to the power terminals, (away from them so as not to make accidential contact) and install a green grounding screw for the cord set's ground wire.
Any other advice is dangerous and can lead to electrocution, injury and death!
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
