My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

Yes you can put a 3 wire power cord on this dryer ,in fact there is not reason why it needed a 4 wire cord ,due to it does not have an electronic control board .

So yes a 3 wire cord will work just fine.
