I recently moved to a new house and was hooking up my old dryer and noticed the plug was different (4 slots instead of 3). than my old outlet. Bought a new cord and noticed that there were diferent colored wires (green was the ground but the others were red white and black). Unfortunately, the dryer itself had no colors on the connections. What do the colors mean and is there a strategy for knowing what does where?

This will help explain this setup, but attach the ground wire to the case, the white common to the center post of the terminal block and the red and black to the right and left posts on the block. Not seeing what brand this is do not know how the dryer is wired internally but do not believe it matters which side the black and red go onto. Both will be 120 volts and the common will give the 240 volts for the element across line 1 and line 2.
