While it is possible to convert your dryer from electric to gas or vice versa, you will find the cost to be excessive and not worth consideration. A gas dryer will have3 a gas burner and ignitor circuit system while the electric dryer will have a heating element and controls. This is NOT a practical conversion nor would it be cost effective. If you need a gas dryer for your new home, purchase a new dryer or save a few $$$ and check your local Craig's List for a good deal on a used gas dryer. Just beware that you don't buy someone elses problem. There are legitimate sales caused by moving or upgrading appliances that will allow you to find a great bargain. Drop any notion of converting your dryer!
You cannot convert a gas dryer to electric. Do you a natural gas line for your furnace? A plumber can easily T into the mainline and run a drop for your dryer. This would be cheaper than buying a new dryer. If you do not have natural gas in your house you will need to buy a new dryer.
No, it is not practical to try to convert a gas dryer to electric. Cost of parts alone (not even counting labor) would exceed the cost of a new dryer. Please don't bother rating this, as anything but a FixYa will lower my rating.
