Question about Whirlpool Inglis IP8200 Dryer
What type of wire to use when hooking up an electric dryer
If you are referring to the breaker / fuse box to the dryer recepticle, you would use 10-3 NM w/ ground. (that is 4 conductor wire: 2 "hot", one neutral, and one ground.) If you are referring to the dryer to the recepticle, use a pre-made dryer cord, either a 3 wire or 4 wire, depending on which recepticle your home has.

You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors). You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the dryer cord.
Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps. The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.
Now the big question- why are you switching to electrical? Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones). Just wondering..
