Question about Dryers

My electrician installed the 220 outlet for my dryer on the floor in my laundry room. Is this a hazard if I ever have a water leak from my washing machine? Should I have him reinstall it in the wall?

I for one would have hadthem install it into the wall. However, if he was a licensed electrician then he would, BY LAW, have to follow building and electrical codes for your area. Contact another electrician and ask them how they would have done it.

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!

About once every 7-10 days, an excessive amount of water leaks from beneath our dryer, flooding our laundry room. Is there an area in the dryer that water from wet clothing is collecting before it leaks...


Their is a catch pan that has 2 float switches in it. One of them is supposed to pump the water into the water tray atop the machine.
The other is supposed to kill power if the pump motor fails. I would be willing to bet a hose came off the pump. When the tank gets full the water gets expelled to the floor. Here is a manual for condenser dryers:

Does my 3 wire dyer cord supose to go all the way in the outlet plug?


Yes. Failure to ensure the plug is flush inside the outlet, leaves 220-240VAC exposed on the terminals. This presents a potential shock hazard and/or fire hazard if anything was to fall behind the dryer and end up lodged on one of the terminals. Some of the plugs will fit very tightly inside the wall outlet. However, if the plug does not insert properly, you may require an electrician to install a new outlet for you. If you are not familiar with electricity, I would not recommend attempting to repair an outlet on your own. As I stated before, the voltage potential is 220-240VAC with a current rating of about 25 to 35 amps. I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you still require assistance.

Install 220 outlet for electric dryer or trade it for gas dryer?


Thanks for all the input!  We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday!  The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent.  Thanks. jersey p

Most dryers are 220 so they can produce the amount of heat required to properly dry clothes. I would Not recommend trying to convert the dryer to 110 voltage. This may cause you alot of unwanted problems. I would find a Qualified electrician to install a 220 outlet at the location of the dryer .

Front Load LG Washer and Dryer Pedestals


If the pedestals are properly installed they pretty much become part of the washer and dryer and if those are installed correctly you will have no more vibration then if the units are sitting on the floor. If possible get the washer as close to an outside wall as possible since the floor is stronger there.
