Smile Dryer cord installation

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer that I need to install a plug on. It has a 3 prong style now for house use. I have moved to a mobile home now and it has a different style with maybe 4 prongs. Any instruction is greatly appreciated! I have installed plugs before but not this style. Thanks again

You will need a four wire cord set. It is best to follow the manufactures instruction but in general on a three wire setup there is a bonding strap or wire between the metal case and the neutral connection. You remove that strap/wire and connect the green wire of the cord set to the case where the bonding strap was originally connected. Other connections are the same.
