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.
Yes. Kenmore makes one.
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.
120v or 240v. 120v is one leg of the main panel, and 240 is two legs of the main panel. 120v is lights,outlets. 240v, dryer,stove.
Single pole 20 amp breaker.
Yes you can. Don't worry it won't break! I have tried it myself!
You probably have something else running off of the same fuse that you are trying to run the hair dryer on. Try using a different outlet and this should fix the problem.
Resistance=Voltage2/Power =1202/1100 =13.1 (3sf)
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.

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.
The formula you are looking for is I = W/E. W = kW x 1000.
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.

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.
The UK uses 240V, so your dryer will probably work, as the US uses 240v in homes for dryers. However, your washer won't as the US uses 120V for washers.
Yes. The outlet on the stove should be rated to 15A 110V.
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supply service. Yes it is, but also there can be 240 volt outlets as the electrical system is 120/240 in North American homes.
Use P = V*I P = 1100W and V = 120V Solve for I to get 9.17A
Hire an electrician to install for you a 240 line. I agree with Tim. You need a dedicated circuit for a dryer. The wiring is larger and you cannot use the 12/2 wiring that is already there. You need a home run from the dryer to the electricl panel. You need an electrican.
120V, but 20A, so not a regular outlet or wire.
Check wires to pump see if your getting 120v
11 amps Volts X Amps = Watts so if your dryer is plugged into a 120V circuit (common in U.S.) you would divide: 1875 Watts / 120 Volts = 15.6 Amps
