Can this samsung gas dryer convert in electric dryer too


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!

I have a gas powered kenmore dryer but my new home does not have an gas outlet instead the new home has only an electrical power 220 outlet I want to use my new dryer in my new home. How do I convert from...


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.

I have Whirlpool front load dryer ) I just moved into a house that has a hook up for an electric dryer...can this dryer be converted to electric?


Hi, how are ya?

To answer your question,
i your dryer is a gas then no, you won't be able to convert it to electric because a gas dryer uses 120V whereas an electric uses 240V.

Sorry, good luck :)

Gas to electric conversion.


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.
