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!

SOURCE: samsung dryer is not drying and its new

It ended up being a easy fix. Our old dryer was working fine and had been ran an hour before I hooked up the new Samsung dryer. Therefore I assumed when the new dryer did not work there had to be something wrong with it. There ended up being nothing wrong with it and it was my dryer vent. It was barley plugged which caused it to not heat up properly. I was told that the new dryers have a lot more sensors on them and its very sensitive about needing a clean vent to vent out the heat. My vent was not very dirty, but it had just enough build up of lent in it, it caused the dryer to not vent properly and it would keep shutting the flame off. Blew it out with my leaf blower and now it heats up and dry quick. I hope this helps

SOURCE: samsung gas dryer convert to propane

I purchased a Samsung steam gas dryer and found that no one in our area knew anything about them, Fortunately I am a gas tech. but have never worked on this brand. The first thing is you should always use a gas technician before doing this. Secondly turn off the gas and electricity. You must remove the two screws from the back that hold on the top of the appliance and set this aside. Then lift up the front electronics and disconnect the wiring harness, once you've done this there are 5 screws along the top of the silver strip or door area. This will alow you to lift up the front and disconnect the wiring harness and set aside. now you can follow the instructions on converting your dryer. PLEASE check for LEAKS and proper gas flow. Follow the same steps in reverse to put the dryer back together and happy drying.

This may be a problem with your moisture sensor or the control that read the sensor. If it is under warranty have Samsung fix it for free. Make sure the cycle settings are correct before tinkering. First make sure the electronics are not too dusty. You could blow them off or vacuum them. Dirt particles can conduct electricity and make it read wrong. Next check the electrical connection for the moisture sensor. See if its location is in the manual. If it doesn't work after some tinkering asked the service for the dryer about possibly replacing the sensor but first try hard to get it to work.

Can an electric dryer be converted to a gas dryer? My new lease house has only a gas connection. If the dryer cannot be converted is it cheaper to buy a new dryer or have an electrician add an electric...


no you can not convert :-( putting in a dryer receptical is probably your line of least resistance it is typicaly 30 amps at 240 vac. so it will require special wireing 10/3 nmd7 , 2 pole dedicated 30 amp breaker, and a special receptical not a problem unless the basment is finished dry walled ect,, and you are trying to put the dryer on the second floor (far away from breaker panel) that could get costly fast ..get a qoute. just a side note I highly recomend using a licensed eletrician depending on where you live making modifications to electrical or plumbing in a leased house can leave you liable long after you move out
Good Luck

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 :)
