I'm converting to a four prong cord. My dryer has a "but-in" green wire (with a yellow stripe) already screwed into the frame. It is not part of the new four prong cord. Where do I attach the green wire that is part of the new four prong cord? Do I just overlap it with the existing green cord?


That's the perfect spot to put the new green ground wire - right with the existing one. Just take the screw out, add the new green wire to the existing one and put the screw back in place.
