I'm trying to put a 4 prong plug on my new dryer. I know how to do it but I have a white plug attached to my green screw. What do I do with the white plug?

A model number would help me find the actual install sheet.

Normally you would do the following but it would be a good idea to confirm this with a install sheet.

Black from the power cord goes to the left terminal strip connector.
The white attached to the frame gets disconnected and attached to the center terminal strip connector, also the white from the power cord goes to the center terminal.
The red from the power cord goes to the right terminal strip connector.
The green from the power cord gets connected to the place where the original white wire was connected to the frame.
