How many prongs are on the dryer cord now and how many in the new outlet?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
3 on cord, 4 on outlet
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 months ago.

You should have 2 straight holes, a round hole and an L shaped hole on the outlet, correct?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no round hole. cam you see pics I attached?
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 months ago.

I cannot. If the outlet has 4 prongs, one has to be rounded.

Okay, so you just need to replace the cord with a 4 prong dryer cord, available from any hardware store. The video at the link below shows how to change it!
