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!

The following link explains how to properly wire a 220 VAC appliance plug on an electric dryer:

Pay particular attention to whether this is a three-wire or four-wire configuration. There is a difference in how the ground and neutral wires are to be terminated.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Changing 220 plugs need discription of positive and negitive to dryer

If you are installing a 3 prong cord , then the 2 outer wires , are the power lines , and the center is the neutral . On the dryer , the center wire connects to the white wire on the terminal block . The 2 outer cord wires . 1 connects to the black wire terminal on the block ( outside terminal ) , and the other outside wire , connects to the red ( outside terminal ) on the block . Its the same if you are installing a 4 wire cord , except the green , connects to the ground screw on the dryer itself .

I would like (need!!) to create an extention cord for a pool heater (UK) 3000w, 220/240v (13-14 amp). I want to plug it into the 220/240v, 30 amp dryer line. (My only 220/240 line and am unable install...

Use 12/3 gauge rubber or plastic insulation rated for 500 to 600 volts and extend the cable for entire length--don't make a short extension of the existing heater cable. If the total length is over about 4 meters then go with 10/3 cable for safety. The green wire is for the ground pin and the two slanted pins go to 220/240 voltage. Hook the heater end the same as the original cable. That should satisfy any local-disconnect regulations (at least in the states).

I have a 4 prong pigtail

Here is what I believe you have.

The 3 prong plug on your dryer is configured with 2 lines of power and 1 ground. The 4 prong receptical is 2 lines of power, 1 neutral, and 1 ground.
You will have to turn off the breaker to see how the receptical is wired by pulling it out and looking at it. You can then buy a 4 prong plug to match it and only wire up the 3 prongs you need for your dryer and leave the 4th prong empty.

Good Luck and hope this helps

Wiring 4 wird dryer plug to 3 wire 10/3 for 220 welder

the four wire plug seperates the neutral and ground. the three wire just piggybacks the ground to the neutral. so just get a three wire cord that fits the 220 plug on the generator and install it on your dryer make sure to attach the ground correctly for your three wire setup
