My condo came with an already stacked electric washer and dryer combo which only required one 3 prong outlet. Now that we want to replace the broken machine to a stackabled front loading washer dryer,...


If the "3-prong" outlet to which you refer is a standard 110V outlet then adding another is very straightforward. It is quite common, though, for dryers to require a 220V outlet which is a different deal entirely (washers normally require only 110V). If that's the case (one needs 110, the other needs 220) then you probably want to consult a handy neighbor or a pro. If both need 110, then the first potential complicating factor is the size of the junction box the outlet is in. If it's a 2-gang box with one outlet in it, adding another outlet is easy - just add it to the box. If it's a 1-gang box (i.e., it's filled by the one outlet) then you'll have to replace the box before adding an outlet and again you'd probably want to enlist a handy neighbor or pro to help. The second potential complicating factor is the size of the breaker. If both machines want 110 and you add an outlet you might - *might* - be overloading the circuit (without knowing what machines you're talking about, it's an open question), in which case you'd have to add another circuit to the box for the additional outlet - again, a handy neighbor or pro can help with that.

So, in summary: if both machines use a standard 110V 3-prong plug adding another outlet is usually simple - you could even use a heavy-duty outlet multiplier. If either machine needs 220, see a pro or a DIYer.

As to what getting a pro might cost: I'm sorry, I have no idea. That depends on where you are and how difficult the job is. I can't even give you an estimate of how much it would cost me here 'cause I do all that sort of stuff myself.

I hope this was helpful to you, Helen! Good luck!

I am trying to hook up my stackable washer and dryer. I havee a 220 plug 30a what do I need to do so I don't have to go back to home depot and get whole new plug in and plug?


If the unit has a 30 amp/220volt plug, then you will need a dedicated 30 amp outlet from a 220 volt line from the panel. You can not switch the plug to work with a regular (15-20 amp) outlet. Have an electrician install a 10 gauge 220 line from the panel to the unit. good luck!

What do you do if your out let for your house is only putting out 110 instead of 220 at the outlet.


Depends ... what is 'normal house voltage' where you live?

If you are installing a new electric dryer in the USA, typically, they operate at 220 Volts. If there is no special outlet at the place where you want to use the dryer, you will have to have an electrician install the proper gage wire and outlet for you. Expect to pay up to $200.00 or more for this installation from the house main panel to the dryer location.

If there is a gas line at the location, you may want to consider exchanging your electric for a gas model.

Yes, you can buy another pig tail with the set up you have incoming. Just be sure when you remove your old one, you note which wire goes where.

New house requires 4 prong plug for dryer...mine has 3...bought new cord...How to wire it?


The old three prong, the vertical prong is neutral (white wire), the two slanted are 220 volts. The new plug, the extra prong is ground (bare wire). Shut off the outlet at the breaker panel, and remove the outlet to examine the wiring to it. It should be as above--the 220 volt wires are red and black or black and black. The ground wire is bare or green insulated. Inside the dryer case, tie the green and white wires to the dryer case, and tie the two outside wires where they went with the old cord. Check with an electrician if you are unsure about this.

Does my 3 wire dyer cord supose to go all the way in the outlet plug?


Yes. Failure to ensure the plug is flush inside the outlet, leaves 220-240VAC exposed on the terminals. This presents a potential shock hazard and/or fire hazard if anything was to fall behind the dryer and end up lodged on one of the terminals. Some of the plugs will fit very tightly inside the wall outlet. However, if the plug does not insert properly, you may require an electrician to install a new outlet for you. If you are not familiar with electricity, I would not recommend attempting to repair an outlet on your own. As I stated before, the voltage potential is 220-240VAC with a current rating of about 25 to 35 amps. I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you still require assistance.

Most dryers are 220 so they can produce the amount of heat required to properly dry clothes. I would Not recommend trying to convert the dryer to 110 voltage. This may cause you alot of unwanted problems. I would find a Qualified electrician to install a 220 outlet at the location of the dryer .

My electrician installed the 220 outlet for my dryer on the floor in my laundry room. Is this a hazard if I ever have a water leak from my washing machine? Should I have him reinstall it in the wall?


I for one would have hadthem install it into the wall. However, if he was a licensed electrician then he would, BY LAW, have to follow building and electrical codes for your area. Contact another electrician and ask them how they would have done it.
