The voltage is approximately the same,the difference is the frequency of incoming power as power delivered in the USA is at 60 Hz. and power in Europe is at 50Hz. so some electronic parts will not operate on this frequency,you might be able to purchase a power/frequency inverter unit but not sure on this,talk to your power provider as they may have the answer to this

SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer will not heat

check the thermal limit on the side of the heater housing and the blower thermal on the blower housing
the emement limit is at the top of the blower housing and will have 2 red wires going to it
the blower limit will have blue wires going to it
withe the power cord unpluged, remove the wires to these two limits and with a meter on rx 1 ect. read across each of these if you do not get a meter fluctuation , all the way to the right as you check the part os bad

SOURCE: What size breaker is reommended for electric dryer 220V?

Electric dryer uses a double pole 30 Amp breaker. Check for a loose electrical connection. Check that the screws holding the wires on the breaker itself are tight. Next, check the screws for the ground / neutral in the breaker box. Next, check all the connections in the dryer recepticle (where the dryer cord plugs into the wall) Finally, check the connections where the cord connects onto the dryer. If all connections listed were good tight connections, replace breaker.

SOURCE: voltage difference

The voltage difference can be overcome. The problem will be the difference in frequency 50hz vs 60hz. The motors would have to be replaced with motors designed to operate at 50hz. The electronics would most likely need to be replace as well.

Best bet would be to contact whirlpool international to see if the offer a conversion kit/package.

I just moved to France and brought my Juki TL-2010Q from the USA. I plugged it in with a European adaptor and it blew the fuse? Is it fixable? Where do I get a replacement fuse? Thank you! Suzanne


Did you mean an 'adaptor' (as in two-pin to 3-pin) or a transformer ?
It is a DIFFERENT electrical system in Europe to the USA.
The USA is 110v and Europe is 240 or 220v. The machine is
probably burned out. You would need to take it to a dealer to be checked. You can ONLY use USA electrical equipment with a TRANSFORMER, so that it can function on the different European electrical system. Good luck !

Is it a 220 or a 110


General an electric dryer full size is 220v, a pic of the plug would be helpfull and it should have a tag that states volts and amps.

Can I plug GE dryer GTDP250EMWW directly to 220v? the manual says that the power rating of this model is 110/220v.


If the dryer is electric and bought in the United States then you can plug it in. The 110/220 power rating basically means that some parts if the dryer use 110v. All 220v is is 2 110v independent circuits sharing the same common ground.

LER4634EQ2 whirlpool electric dryer. heating element,thermal cut-off, and high limit are all getting continuity, but heating element still will not heat up.


I know this might sound stupid but try this. Find your fuse box, locate the breaker that runs your dryer. Flip it off and then back on. If i'm correct, it will work. Everything on your dryer works off of one leg of the 220v. The other leg goes to the other side of the element. If you have a meter. check for 220v at the plug. Everything you listed is what makes the dryer heat other than the thermostats. Check the cycling thermostats like you did the other pieces. They look like the thermal cut off. They have two wires and they are round.
