For USA, Canada and other countries running a 60 Hz supply service.If you're wanting to power a 30 amp dryer with a 50 amp circuit, that's possible.
The 50 amp circuit should already have the heavier wires that the oven needs, to carry up to 50 amps safely.
You must change the fuse or circuit breaker to one rated for 30 amps or your dryer would not be protected from overload faults. And leave a note in the breaker box so the next do-it-yourselfer will know the wiring can handle a 50 amp load.
If this question were asking the other way around - the dryer needs 50 amps but the circuit wiring is only safe to use for 30 amps - the existing 30 amp oven circuit would be unsafe to use because, in certain conditions, the wiring could overheat and could start a home fire. That is why doing this would be contrary to the wiring codes.
As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
Always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
If you are not already sure you can do this job safely and competently... Refer this work to qualified professionals.
