Kenmore Dryer 697267

I have a Kenmore dryer that was given to me from my mother after my divorce. It has a 220 plug. I do not have a 220 outlet. Can I change the 220 to 110? I took the back panel off where the plug is and the there wires are located right there. What can I do?

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 .

your voltage is not right as it should be 220 volts, check the outlet to see if you have 220 if you do then its the cord, if not then it is either the outlet or the breaker-panel, to check panel remove panel and test both legs of the breaker you should have 220 if not then replace the 30 amp breaker.

Changing a 3 prong plug into a regular outlet plug.

Your plug is for 220v and a regular wall outlet is 110volts. It simply will not work. You will burn out your dryer, and place yourself at risk of electrocution.

Hello, I have a Kenmore 80 Series. Washer and Dryer. Bought it from someone on Craigslist. How do I hook them up? Is there a manual any where out there?

Connect your hot and cold water pipes to the washer. Place the drain pipe into a sink or direct drain feed to your sewer system. Plug it into outlet. Dryer - plug it into your 220 line outlet. If the plug is not the same as your outlet you can find instructions on lline with pics on how to change a 3 prong plug to a 4 prong plug and so on...:)

We bought an electric dryer from sears outlet

220 Cords are usually color coded - BLACK, WHITE, RED, GREEN for Ground. Inside the dryer where you connect the wires should be the same colors. Just put the Black with the Black and so on. Make sure the plug is for a dryer and not a stove.
