3-Prong to 4-Prong conversion

I just move and had to converted my 3-prong plug to a 4 prong plug on my Frigidaire dryer to accomodate a 4 prong receptacle. Now the top, back right corner of the dryer gets very hot. What can the cause be? I wired the 4-prong plug as indicated below;
1 - green to frame
2 - black to left ternminal
3 - white to center terminal
4 - red to right terminal
5 - green ground strap removed from frame to center terminal with white wire

From what I understand about dryers is that they are designed to get hot. Some spots more than others maybe? Call Frigidaire and ask them about your particular situation/problem. It is probably nothing to worry about.
