Question about Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer
If you have a digital camera, you could take a picture of the plug (several different angles) and your outlet then go to one of the large chain hardware stores, camera in hand, and ask for an adaptor between the dryer's plug and your outlet.
It may not be necessary to rewire the dryer at all.
If they don't have one, keep reading.
The change probably is possible since dryers generally use a 2-phase connection at the most but I wouldn't recommend that you DIY. You are dealing with a line voltage whcih could be 220 and a circuit capable of supply fairly high (20) amperage.
This combination could make toast out of you if improperly wired. Any competent electrician can determine how to do the conversion with a few measurements.
There is an exception; some mfr.s have pasted a large label either inside or out on the larger panel that contains the electrical diagram of the machine.
With some care, most laymen could determine how to make the change.
