You will need to change the cord on the drier. Ask where you bought the drier for a 4 prong cord. If this is all new stuff they shuld exchange it for you. If you are not sue about connecting the cord to the drier properly you should have a qualified professional do it for you.

follow the directions that came with the dryer. Since you have an older house with 3 wire, they should exchange the 4 wire plug for a 3 wire plug. Just ask if you have more questions!
