Can I connect my electric gas stove to my normal 230 v house plug

I assume you mean a 13amp plug? You'd need to check the kilowatt rating of the appliance. Also, depending on where you are, what regulations are in place regarding electrical works. In the UK, only part p registered electricians are permitted to carry out any electrical works in domestic kitchens, which includes wiring of appliances other than a 3 pin 13amp plug. Hope this answers your question

How to rewire my admiral dryer from 3 wires to 2 wires 240v

Your 3 wire cable should have 1 live, 1 neutral and 1 earth or ground. I don't see why the dryer has 2 wire setup. Unless you are seeing where the ground goes? Get an appliance engineer to check it or get an owners handbook. Don't take chances with electricity.

Want to add 240volt outlet to generator

You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

Bought LG DLE2532W Dryer it in Canada, need to use it in Europe

For to use it with a 220/ 240vac system,you will need to convert 110vac 60hz/to240vac 50 hertz single phase therfore your transformer should have this rating,also it has to be able to handle up to 3kw or 3000watts in power, maybe just as cheap buying a new drier....

MAYTAG DE713 dryer Voltage Option

Yes, the 120 -240 is the range in which your dryer can operate. Many times the standard for Europe is 230 and the 240 allows for power surges that are common.

Using dryer in 220V country

There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

How to wire US dryer to UK supply - Whirlpool WED8300SWD

THIS document has a lot of info about the wiring for the unit you have. starting at page 6

I am, however confused about the voltage requirements as reference to 12/240VAC with a note to check the "rating" plate

If your unit is marked as 240VAC then it should be a simple task for an electrician to wire up the power. The instructions/details are in the manual (link provided) to connect it up as a standard 3 wire system used in the UK

The issue you have is that the motor may not like running on 50hz and may run HOT. It will also run slower on the lower frequency.

The specs on the website are as follows:-

Electrical Requirements

It may be worth getting all details off the rating plate and posting back here...

My suggestion is that you consult a qualified electrician before attempting to connect the unit to the power

Better safe than sorry.
