You'll have to run completely new wire (size 10/3 copper) from a 30amp double-pole breaker and install a new type of receptacle at the machine. It can be done yourself if you have some wiring experience. If not, leave it to a pro. The most important part is using the correct size wire and breaker.

Can you convert a gas dryer 120V hookup to an electric dryer 240V hookup?

Chances are there is more than 1 outlet connected to the 110volt circuit you are looking to convert. So therefore the easy answer is No. The 240volt dryer circuit must be a dedicated single circuit for the dryer only.


How can you convert a 240v clothes dryer to 120v can you use to different outlettes?

You cannot use 2-120v outlets to power a 240v dryer. You can convert a 240v dryer outlet to power 2-120v outlets if they are supplied with a neutral. This requires a competent electrician. Do not do this yourself.


You are building a new house and trying to decide between 120v and 240v which is better More practical?

In the US, both 120v and 240v will be needed for your home, as different appliances need different voltages. Your TV needs 120V, while your electric dryer and stove will need a 120V/240V supply. If you have an electric water heater, or central AC unit, they will need a 240V supply.

Is it possible to run a 240V washer-dryer combo without wiring for another wall outlet?

I assume its 120V already: so, yes, you'll have to wire for a 240V receptacle (240V uses 1 more current carrying wire than 120V). Even if there were enough wires at 120V you'd still need a larger size wire for the combo unit. An electric dryer is a beast with electrical current.

Can a house outlet generate a 4 prong dryer cord?

Short answer: No A standard outlet is 120v and can safety provide about 15 amps. A dryer is 240v at about 30 amps. Also the typical 12-14 gauge wiring is not suitable to carry the current to power a dryer. If you did wire a dryer to a 120v plug most likely the dryer would work but provide very small amount of heat.

Why are gas dryers run on 120V and electric dryers run on 220V?

The heat in gas dryers is from the burning of natural gas. The electricity is only needed to power the blower. The heat in an electric dryer is supplied from a large element that uses a lot of electricity and needs 220 volts to supply enough heat. With a gas dryer you only need 120 volts to turn the drum because the gas heats the air. With the electric dryer the electric heating element takes 220 volts to heat. Similar to an electric stove heating element.

How do you plug two separate but stackable washer and dryer with one needing 240V and the other needing 120V into one 240V outlet?

You DON'T! The washer needs to be on a separate dedicated circuit; 120v, 20 amps. The dryer needs to be on a 240 V, 30 amp dedicated circuit. Trying to do otherwise is unsafe.
