Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?

My garage only has regular 120 outlets. Will this washer/dryer plug in to a regular 120 outlet or does it need 220?

If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.

Re: does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?

Quoc Doan I have Maytag LSE1000 Washer/Dryer combo in my garage now (I just bough the use one). I plug only the Washer (110v, not the Dryer 220v)) I got the Drum's light on (when I open the door), but the control panel did not show any light (power), so do I need to plug the Dryer (220v) also, to get the power for control panel? If the control panel needs only one power source from Washer (110v), then what I have to do (fix) to have the power for the control panel? Right now my Dryer is in the garage, therefore I have no 220v to plug in! Please help. Thanks. Q
Hi nuj nitram,
Sorry for my delay. I did go to store and get the cable... now I have 220V power in, but the control panel is still show nothing (no lights at the control panel), so what should I have to do next to have the lights at control panel? Please help. Q

My condo came with an already stacked electric washer and dryer combo which only required one 3 prong outlet. Now that we want to replace the broken machine to a stackabled front loading washer dryer,...

If the "3-prong" outlet to which you refer is a standard 110V outlet then adding another is very straightforward. It is quite common, though, for dryers to require a 220V outlet which is a different deal entirely (washers normally require only 110V). If that's the case (one needs 110, the other needs 220) then you probably want to consult a handy neighbor or a pro. If both need 110, then the first potential complicating factor is the size of the junction box the outlet is in. If it's a 2-gang box with one outlet in it, adding another outlet is easy - just add it to the box. If it's a 1-gang box (i.e., it's filled by the one outlet) then you'll have to replace the box before adding an outlet and again you'd probably want to enlist a handy neighbor or pro to help. The second potential complicating factor is the size of the breaker. If both machines want 110 and you add an outlet you might - *might* - be overloading the circuit (without knowing what machines you're talking about, it's an open question), in which case you'd have to add another circuit to the box for the additional outlet - again, a handy neighbor or pro can help with that.

So, in summary: if both machines use a standard 110V 3-prong plug adding another outlet is usually simple - you could even use a heavy-duty outlet multiplier. If either machine needs 220, see a pro or a DIYer.

As to what getting a pro might cost: I'm sorry, I have no idea. That depends on where you are and how difficult the job is. I can't even give you an estimate of how much it would cost me here 'cause I do all that sort of stuff myself.

I hope this was helpful to you, Helen! Good luck!

open and close the lid,if you don't hear a clicking sound you just have a bad lid switch,you have an older machine and it has a cherry switch in it,go here and look at part number 5
part number 208823,all it is is a safety so the washer can't run with the lid open so it will fill and then stop because the switch is bad.

I am trying to hook up my stackable washer and dryer. I havee a 220 plug 30a what do I need to do so I don't have to go back to home depot and get whole new plug in and plug?

If the unit has a 30 amp/220volt plug, then you will need a dedicated 30 amp outlet from a 220 volt line from the panel. You can not switch the plug to work with a regular (15-20 amp) outlet. Have an electrician install a 10 gauge 220 line from the panel to the unit. good luck!

How can I adapt the connection from my asko washer that is supposed to plug into the dryer to the outlet in the wall?

I believe the washer works on 120 Volts. All you need to do is replace the plug with a standard 120 V plug. Home Depot has plenty of them.

Lead display is keep on flashing up on start sequence

Have you tried checking the fuse or the circuit breaker? Are both the washer and dryersharing the same two outlet duplex outlet or are they on two totally separate outlets? Just to eliminate/isolate the outlet question after you check the circuit breakers or fuses in your fuse box, try plugging the dryer into a separate outlet. If like many people you do not have an extra outlet in your laundry area, try plugging another item into the dryer outlet to check it for power. This is if you are talking about a gas dryer that works on a 120-volt electrical outlet. If it is an electric dryer it will be on a 230-240 volt outlet with a special plug. If you have an old circuit panel that is still using fuses as opposed to modern circuit breakers and if this Is an electric dryer, you would have a 240 volt disconnect plug more than likely inside the panel and if you firmly grab the handle and yank it straight out, you will see that the disconnect plug will have two short cigar shaped Buss Fuses in it. If this is the case one or more of those fuses could be blown. Depending on the electrical requirements of the dryer those two fuses amy need to be between 20-30Amp rated. or else if you have the manual take a look in it , perhaps one of the fuses is gone .

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin

quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

Wnat to convert a uk washing machine and dryer to use in usa . there is a 220 outlet of course but where do i get a 2 outlet plug for the machines that will then plug into the usa dryer 220 outlet.

there is a possibility that your machines may not work properly in the usa as they generate electricity at a different frequency than uk 60 hertz usa 50 hertz uk also most of the equipment in the usa is 120 volts not 230
