I need some help converting a three prong Maytag dryer to four prong.
The dryer is about ten years old and has three pegs inside the dryer;
the top peg has a yellow and black wire going to it, the middle one
has a white wire going to it, and the bottom one has a blue wire going
to it. There is also a screw on the back of the machine that says
"neutral". My colors don't match up because the new wire I bought has
a red, white, black, and green. Any ideas?
Check the "peg" with the white wire going to it. You will probably find
a bare or green copper wire or strap that goes from that peg to the
frame of the dryer. Remove that wire or strap and attach the supply
white wire to that "peg". Attach the supply circuits green wire to the
place were the other end of the bonding strap was attached. Attach the
red and black to the other two "pegs". If you do not find the bonding
strap or wire then stop and ask more questions.

White middle, powers ( red or black ) on the outside and ground/green
goes to the cabinet.
This should help...
