Use a 110V to 110/220VAC transformer solely for the dryer. The transformer must have both 110 VAC and 220VAC output but you must be electrically knowledgeable to wire a 14-30R receptacle correctly and safely for the dryer. Perform the modification only if you are authorized to do so; otherwise, service of a licensed or authorized electrician is highly recommended. Refer to the wiring diagram of the recommended transformer.
Connect the terminals of the 4-wire receptacle (14-30R) to the transformer accordingly based on the diagram above. The only problem is how to determine the "neutral" terminal from the transformer output terminals.
The "neutral" terminal of the transformer can be found from the 110VAC output terminals without disassembling the transformer . Using a voltmeter, measure the voltage between each of the 110VAC output terminals and each of the 220VAC output terminals. The 110VAC output terminal in which voltage readings to each of the 220VAC output terminals are both 110VAC is the "neutral". The other 110VAC output terminal reads zero and 110VAC and this is NOT the "neutral".
Make sure the transformer power rating is appropriate for the dryer rating.

SOURCE: how to get 220 from breaker box
You are measuring in the wrong place! If you have a double breaker in the circuit breaker box, measure the voltage at the dryer outlet. You should have 110, 110, 220 at the different terminals.
If that isn't the case, then replace the circuit breaker (assuming that you have the right input voltage into the house)
