Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I hooked 10 gauge wires to a receptacle and wired the two hot leads to two 20 amp breakers i wired the white wire to a neutral pole inside the breaker box and the copper to a ground pole. one of the 20 amp breakers sparked and kicked off. i replaced the two breakers with a double 30 amp breaker and now i have no power to the dryer the double 30 amp breaker kicked off
I will try this again i don't think i posted it properly.
On the power cord where it connectes to the dryer make sure the red and black wire goes to the outside screws (L1& L2) the white goes in the middle and the green goes to the dryer cabinet.
If you have the red or black going to the middle one it will trip the breaker.

You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors). You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the dryer cord.
Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps. The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.
Now the big question- why are you switching to electrical? Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones). Just wondering..
