SOURCE: Install 220 outlet for electric dryer or trade it for gas dryer?

Thanks for all the input!  We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday!  The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent.  Thanks. jersey p

SOURCE: How do you install a 3 prong power supply cord to a GE Dryer?

DO NOT CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD.
you can't change the power supply cord.
the cord came with the dryer is 240v. the three prong is 120v. the dryer will burn up. if you change the power cord without changing the regulator , motor, and the heating element.
you need to get a electrician to run a 240v double breaker from the panel to the dryer.

I have a maytag MDG40000Bww that doesn't heat


Start with the electric wire on the back of the machine. You have either a 3 prong or a 4 pronged electric plug.
Find a testing instrument and determine if two of the wires have 110 volts coming to them.
On a 3 pronged one ( the "L" shaped one) is the ground.
One a 4 pronged one, the round one and the "L" shaped ones are both ground.
The other two should each show 110v.

If all this tests well, we'll need to go inside the machine.
Your dryer has from 3 to about 10 things to check with an electrical tester.
You will be taking the wire connections off the heating element and all the thermostats one at a time and checking them to see which one shows " a problem", meaning electricity will not pass "through" them.
Also look for wire connectors that have burned in two.
If you need help here, please find someone who can show you how this is done.
Be blessed.

How do you change a 4 prong dryer plug down to a 3 prong power plug


Today's newer electric dryers now use a 4 prong plug. If you try to relegate your new dryer to the old 3 prong hook-up that you currently have in your house, you will have issues with your dryer. Instead, I recommend you update your house's wall receptacle to the newer 4 prong terminal and keep that new dryer warranty intact. Douglas

I just got a used kenmore model number 110 88752792 stackable washer and dryer. it had a 4 prong cord.I live in a travel trailer, it has a 24 inch wide space for a stackable washer and dryer that the 110...


You will need to get 230v to allow the dryer to work if your service panel has 230 you will need to get a 30 amp two pole breaker and run 3 wire #8 in size. Then get the socket and plug for the dryer. The 110 in the model number simply means made by whirlpool and is a pretty good machine but requires 230 volts to dry with heat.
