Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.


Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.

Convert dryer to propane. We have the Whirlpool converter for Maytag dryer.


If this is natural gas dryer, you need a certified gas technician to do the work. You can't do it yourself as it is too dangerous. The gas air mixture and the gas pressure has to be set with a tool called a manometer.

If the dryer was electric, and you want to convert it to propane, that is impossible and can't be done.

I am going to say yes as the orifice for propane has a much smaller hole than natural gas. Should check with a repairman to get the right one.

Hello there. If the parts were saved, they can be reused. If not, contact your propane provider and tell them that you plan to convert back to natural gas. They will be able to get you the kit you need, and will possibly have a technician come out and install it for a fee.
