You don't. You can either have an electrician install a 220V socket for it or get a special cord/switchbreaker to share it with your dryer socket.

Washer won't turn on unless dryer is on


I assume you have a gas dryer, as a washing machine runs on 110 Amps while an electric dryer uses a higher 220 Amps. If both the washer and the dryer cords are plugged into the same socket, and the washer only runs while the dryer is on, the socket is not wired properly. You may check this easily enough by switching the washer cord to the one presently utilized by the dryer. If the washer runs, then look at the wiring.

Tip

Installing a 220 VAC Appliance Cord


This advice is on how to correctly install an ELECTRIC DRYER or ELECTRIC RANGE 220-240VAC power cord (US Standards).

3-Prong or 4-Prong – The Difference:

3-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – Usually grounded to the equipment frame via a jumper wire or metal strap.

4-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – DO NOT ground to equipment frame.
GREEN (GROUND) – Attach to equipment frame.

Which One to Use: According to the National Electrical Code (NEC), Article 250, installations after the year 2000, require the use of a 4-prong plug which incorporates a separate ground and neutral wire. If you currently have a home that uses the 3-prong receptacle and cord, you can continue to use it. You will have to upgrade to a 4-prong configuration, however, if you plan on relocating your current receptacle, or if the internal wires of the receptacle become damaged in any way and require repair.

Converting from 3-prong to 4-prong: Make sure you UNPLUG the appliance prior to any repairs. CAUTION: Voltages dangerous to life are still present even with the appliance turned off and still plugged in. Notably in the area of the terminal block where the power cords are installed. You will need to remove the old cord by following these steps:

  1. With the appliance UNPLUGGED, remove the access panel on the back of the unit where the power cord enters.
  2. With the cover removed, you will see a terminal block where the power cord is attached. The terminal wires will be colored with the WHITE wire in the middle, and the BLACK and RED wires on either end. NOTE: There should be a green jumper wire or metal bonding strap attached to the NEUTRAL (white) terminal wire.
  3. Remove the terminal lugs holding the old power cord wires in place. CAUTION: Use care not to drop any nuts or screws inside the appliance.
  4. Remove the bonding strap or ground wire from the Neutral terminal lug. NOTE: If disconnecting a ground wire, make sure you re-attach it to the appliance frame.
  5. Loosen the screws on the strain relief connector that holds the power cord in place and remove old power cord. NOTE: If your appliance does not have a strain relief that clamps down and hold the power cord in place, it is highly recommended that you install one. This prevents chaffing of the power cord against the appliance casing, and prevents the terminal wires from being pulled and broken loose. This could pose a potential shock hazard or cause damage to the appliance.
  6. Install new power cord by threading it through the strain relief connector and tighten down the screws.
  7. Connect the new power cord to the corresponding colors at the terminal block (Black goes to Black, Red goes to Red, White goes to White). The difference is going to be a Green (ground) wire that will connect to the appliance frame. There’s usually a green grounding screw for this. NOTE: If you disconnected a green grounding strap in Step 4., you can connect these two wires at the same point.
  8. Re-install access cover. Turn off the service breaker to the appliance PRIOR to plugging it back in. With the breaker in the off position, plug the appliance in, and THEN turn the breaker on. In the event, something was wired incorrectly, it is far better to have your hands away from the receptacle and controlled from a distance. Safety first.
These steps will work for nearly all appliances that require a 220-240VAC power cord conversion. The power cords are usually rated at 250VAC, 30 amps, and are carried by any hardware store or appliance parts retailer.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

  1. If you desire to convert an appliance from a 4-prong to a 3-prong, make sure you reconnect the bonding strap and/or ground wire to the Neutral (white) wire at the terminal block.
  2. On some newer appliances, it is REQUIRED that you use a 4-prong plug in order for the timer or clock circuits to function properly due to the way they are configured. Refer to your owner’s manual for the correct recommendation. Even if you currently have a 3-prong receptacle, you still may be required to upgrade to a 4-prong if you encounter this situation.
  3. In many circumstances, new appliances are NOT sold with the power cord due to the various power configurations in homes. Always refer to the contents description on the shipping container the appliance comes with to see what additional items or tools may be required for installation.
I hope this information is found to be helpful.

There was a pop sound when the machine was switched on and now no power or lights. Plug fuze changed and outlet ok. Any clues as to the problem?


check supply voltage either 220 or 110 at Main PCB ( Printed circuit board) , when you press the power switch on !

if no power reaches check connectivity of your power cord through multimeter ! ,

hopefully you will get a break through !
if problems exists contact me ,

Unless it's a 110 tub, you don't. If the system is designed to run on 220 the circ pump and flow pump will not function properly, the power pack may not function and the tub will never reach temp. If it is a 110 hot tub I would still suggest having a licensed electrician run the line for you. Most insurance companies will not cover any type of hot tub related claim unless installed by licensed tub tech/electrician. If you insist on wiring it yourself, the BLACK wire is the "hot" wire carrying the current. In 220 installations the RED wire is the second "hot" wire. The WHITE/GREY is the neutral wire, and the GREEN is the ground. But again, I STRONGLY recommend paying the $80-$95 bucks to have it done professionally. I hope this helps =)

I need to know how to wire 110 to 220 on a hayward sp-1605-z1 pump motor


The Hayward superpump is factory set at 220.
If you need to convert it to 110, all you need to do is take a screwdriver and remove the cap on the back of the motor. There are three prongs in the motor and a black jumper. The jumper connection needs to be disconnected and moved from The top and middle postion prongs, to the middle and lower prong. The ground wire (green) still connects to the same spot (usually a green bolt grounding lug). If using a Haward SPX1250wa (110 Cord) connect it to the pump Black wire to black connector/White to white. The Hayward cord comes with pre-attached terminal connections that makes it easy to do.
Once the cap is re-attached you should be good to go.

Sylvania GNET28001SO Meso 8.9" Netbook PC (1.6 GHz Intel Atom


If you are attempting to connect your laptop between 110 and 220 volt power outlets, you may be able to do so already, take a look at your power cord's transformer (brick) and read the input voltage. If you only can use 110 volt AC Input Voltage should read 115VAC. If you can do both, then it should read 110-225VAC. 

If your power brick supports 220, then all you will likely need is a plug adaptor, found at many electronics store. If not, you wil need to stop in at a computer store or an import store and get an international transformer, which are set up to convert many different country plugs and many common voltages.

Good Luck!

Plugs for Linea Model La Marrazco Expresso


The smaller cord goes to the external pump. DO NOT put a cord cap on this and plug it into the wall, you will cause significant damage to the machine and the wall.

You should have a large oblong shaped pump with wires coming out of it that is separate from the machine. You need it to run the machine. If you need a pump, let me know.

Power cord exchangable


every electrical machine should have the required voltage printed somewhere on it. You never need to open it up to find out.

Look for something like 110/120 v or 220/240v
