Dryer Circuit Requires Corrected 220 Volt Circuit

Electrical Question: I recently attempted to install a new GE DSXHS47 front load Dryer using 240V – 4wire installation procedures.

Although unit manual shows it is 3-wire single phase, I believe I am able to utilize the 4 wire installation as well and simply remove the white neutral grounding and replacing it with the cords 4-wire green ground wire, then rerouting the neutral white back onto itself.

The Problem with The Dryer

This tells me I believe I have something not configured correctly within the neutral itself.
I believe I just need to know a bit more about neutral wiring as it relates to power sources?
Please review  and advise!

Thanks,
Gary
