Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer
I would like to move my dryer to Belgium and I would like to know if I will need a 240/120 volt transformer to power the electronics inside the dryer? I know the motor will run 20% slower due to the 50/60 Hz. difference.
It would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.
