Check on the wiring diagram. You may be looking at 2-15 amp or 2-20 amp breakers.

I rewired the unit in its 3-prong orientation and have plugged it into our 20A outlet. In the current orientation, only the dryer works. However, if I switch the black and red wire, only the washer wo

if i understand correctly you have it connected to a 240 volt circuit protected by a 20amp breaker, then you should have it on a minimum of a 240 volt circuit protected by a 30 amp breaker ,then you should have 120volts from the red wire to the white neutral wire and 120 volts from the black wire to the white neutral wire,or 240 volts between the red and black wires, then the unit should operate correctly as the dryer needs 240 volts and the washer uses 120 volts to operate as this is how the unit is wired to operate

First make sure that the circuit breakers are compatible with the installed circuit breaker panel. If you have to force it or jerry rig it, replace with the correct one. Then make sure that you tightened down the terminals and that you are using the correct wire size - 6 awg for the 50 amp and 10 awg for the 30. Then verify that you connected the wire correctly to the new outlets you installed.

I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?

If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously.

Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

Can a 240 volt outlet be ran off this breaker and can a 240 volt electric baseboard heater be wired to it or should i use double pole breaker?

You need 240 breaker:
Notice that your 240V breaker is twice as wide as regular 120V breaker.
Notice that both switches are tied together on 240V breaker, making this a double-pole breaker.

How to install new circuit breaker, wiring, and outlet for washer and dryer

Electric dryers require both 240-volt and 120-volt circuits in order to work. The 240 volts are used to heat up the elements that ultimately dry your clothes and the 120-volt circuit is needed to deliver power to the timers, buzzer and controls. This does not mean that you have to run two independent circuits, however. All that is required is a dryer receptacle fed by a three-conductor wire or 10/3g wire. Here is how to wire a dryer receptacle.i think it will work.

No heat in dryer . the drum turns but there is no heat in dryer. does no dry clothes

Gas or Electric?

Electric - it is possible that the element is burned out. You will have to remove the back for access. Make sure you are disconnected before you test anything..

Gas - is yours a pilot fired or igniter? Pilot - check the thermocouple. Igniter - is it intact?

A diagram of how to wire a 220 volt outlet from two 110 volt outlets.

You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.

What type of powercord and outlet does this dryer require? Electrician installed a 220 outlet.

CIRCUIT - Individual 30 amp. branch circuit fused with 30
amp. time delay fuses or circuit breakers.
Use separately fused circuits for washers and dryers, and DO
NOT operate a washer and a dryer on the same circuit.
POWER SUPPLY - 3 wire or 4-wire, 240 volt, single phase, 60
Hz, Alternating Current.
POWER SUPPLY CORD KIT - The dryer MUST employ a 3-
conductor power supply cord NEMA 10-30 type SRDT rated at
240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp., with 3 open end spade lug
connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors and
marked for use with clothes dryers.
WARNING – Risk of Shock. Appliance grounded to neutral
conductor through a link. Grounding through the neutral link is
prohibited for (1) New branch circuit installations (2) mobile
homes; (3) recreational vehicles; and (4) areas where local codes
do not permit grounding through the neutral, (1) disconnect the
link from the neutral, (2) use grounding terminal or lead to
ground appliance in accordance with local codes and (3) connect
neutral terminal or lead to branch circuit neutral in usual manner
(if the appliance is to be connected by means of a cord kit, use
4-conductor cord for this purpose). USE COPPER CONDUCTOR
ONLY. The dryer MUST employ a 4-conductor power supply
cord NEMA 14-30 type SRDT or ST (as required) rated at 240
volt AC minimum, 30 amp., with 4 open end spade lug
connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors and
marked for use with clothes dryers.
