Hello johnnyatorre,
For the right price, you can do almost anything but the cost to convert a gas dryer top electric would exceed the cost to just buy a replacement electric dryer.. I wouldn't advise it...
Sorry my friend...
Regards,
Rick

No. There is no conversion. They work very differently.

SOURCE: converting gas dryer into electric dryer

i don't think you can convert the gas dryer to an electric dryer.

there are so many issues to consider.

1 the contacts of the timer would be a big problem,
2 the heating element wiring uses big wires where as the existing wires are very small to handle the big current of the heaters.
3 the configuration of extra part that you would have such as the gas solenoids, the ignite r, the flame sensor, etc which electric dryer does not have.

and more....

so bottom line is..... can not convert.


tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Can the Maytag Neptune Gas dryer converted to electric?

A gas dryer is dedicated to the use of gas to supply its heating function. It works on 125 volts. No way can a gas dryer become an electric one. UNLESS!
you just want to hang out yer clothes under the sun and use the dryer as a way to fluuf up yer clothes OR you could place the dryer into a box and make a condenser dryer out of it. Like cool hand luke you will toss that dryer into a rigid metal box in direct sunlight so that it can be an unbearable 140 degree up in there. then grab yer clothes and toss em in there and close that tar paer lined tin box up my friend.Let the sun do its thang. I think i just invent the redneck dryer! we don't need no stinking gas. Green power to the people! LOL

I HAVE A MAGTAG GAS DRYER AN WOULD LIKE TO MOVE IT TO A HOME THAT HAS ONLY ELECTRIC IS THIS POSSIBLE? Could this gas dryer be able to work as an electrical dryer?


Hi,
This is not possible to change this way. The entire heat source would need to be change to convert this unit for what you seek to accomplish. I would be cheaper to buy or trade in this dryer for and electric one, you may get lucky and find a small dealer that will trade straight across, also depends on the current market you are in. But to answer your question, this would be too costly to change and cheaper to replace the unit.
I hope this helps.
