Convert a gas dryer to electric

I've installed a photovoltaic solar system on my house and am currently not paying for electricity, unfortunately my new dryer (pre solar install) is natural gas, is it possible to convert my existing gas dryer to electric? The dryer is a Whirlpool Duet.

Even if you could change it to electric you would need way more solar. I always thought natural gas was dirt cheap. What does your water heater run off of ? You can convert your dryer to propane so it WILL work in the event of a national disaster. If that's what your after.

How do non conventional energy better than fossil fuels?


Mankind has developed a way to utilize the sun's vast energy by converting its sunlight into electricity via photovoltaics and other solar power methods. The fossil fuels in the form of plants underneath the earth which transform into oil over time are drilled using polluting machinery.

Is this true or scam Government pays you to go solar.


The US government WILL NOT PAY you to go solar. There have been incentives on the state level to get people to install solar panels. Most of these have dried up but it is possible to find programs that will reimburse you a portion of the total cost but don't expect much. We live in Florida and in 2009 we were promised nearly 1/2 back if we installed. We got less than 10% when all was said and done and it took 2 years to get that.

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.

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 :)

Converting gas dryer into electric dryer


i don't think you can convert the gas dryer to an electric dryer.

there are so many issues to consider.

1 the contacts of the timer would be a big problem,
2 the heating element wiring uses big wires where as the existing wires are very small to handle the big current of the heaters.
3 the configuration of extra part that you would have such as the gas solenoids, the ignite r, the flame sensor, etc which electric dryer does not have.

and more....

so bottom line is..... can not convert.


tnx 4 using fixya,
