I did that but I never could figure out what the fourth wire was for. Why do the new ones have 4?

Old 220V aplliances used to share
the neutral and ground, they don't anymore,
because it could be unsafe.

hello joanne,
sorry took so long to reply but puter was down,
the reasion that the code wasd chainged from 3 wire to 4 wire was for unbonded panels, what this means is the nutural and ground are not bonded together in the service as in the case of a sub panel in this situation u were eather makeing the nutural the ground as well as nutural whin tied to nutural bar and vice versa if to ground bar. with the 4 wire u have a nutural and a ground in addition to the 2 hots.
