Using dryer in 220volt country

Hello, I have my Kenmore dryer 110.62612101 that I bought in Houston texas and I have now moved to Bombay India where we have 220-240V ac power supply. ideally I would like to use the dryer direct from the 220-240v mains supply - how would I connect the power in terms of the red, black, white connectors at the back of the machine?

alternatively I do have a 3KW transformer to step down from 220 to 110V and I could use this. In this case do I connect the output from the transformer to either the red or black and the other wire to the white (neutral) connector at the back of the machine? any help appreciated.

Bombay is 240v single phase, the three wires in the socket are active neutral and earth, not as the 2*110v90degree two phase American circuit active1 active2 and neutral
.
If the transformer is designed for American use, it does not step down 220v,
it instead takes a 2*110v90degree 2 phase supply and produces a high current 110v single phase output, by setting both input phases electrically 90degrees apart on a common primary winding.
This is not compatible.

replace the dryer, cheaper faster safer
should have left in Houston

How do I prep my Kenmore Elite He5t washer for move to new house


Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.

Kenmore dryer timer will not turn.


Bad timer motor if you are using timed dry.
If using auto dry probably a bad sensor.
Verify by using any time dry or air fluff cycle and see if the timer moves.

Using dryer in 220V country


There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

4E problem on kenmore dryer


Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!
