Typical 4-wire installation-
As the picture illustrates, the red and the black wires on the 4-wire cord go to the hot terminals (L1 & L2). It makes no difference which side they go on, as both carry a separate leg of 120 volts to make up the 240 volt circuit. Be sure the white wire goes to the neutral terminal on the dryer! The copper ground strap is removed from the Neutral terminal in a 4-wire hookup. The extra green wire is a cabinet ground wire and can be attached to any nearby screw.
