If this is a Kenmore model ELECTRIC dryer, you need a dedicated (220-240VAC) receptacle on a circuit capable of handling 30 to 35 amps.

Choosing a dryer.Gas or Electric

A gas dryer saves electricity cost, but requires an installed gas line to the home and special installation. If gas is available for a dryer, the outlay for a gas dryer model may be a good option if your dryer usage is high. An electric dryer costs less, but requires installation and energy costs for a dryer varies with usage. Both types of dryers require proper venting to the outside. Always follow the dryer manufacturer's installation recommendations.

Wire connections for electric dryer. How to

The following link explains how to connect a 220VAC appliance cord to an electric dryer:

There is a difference in how the 3-wire and 4-wire configurations are terminated. Read through the instructions throughly and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Homes built after 2000 are required to have a 4-wire configured outlet to be in compliance with the National Electric Code. If you live in an older home that currently has a 3-wire configuration you are not required to upgrade it.

If you mean can a 220 volt dryer be converted to run on 110, the answer is no. It needs the higher voltage to run the heating elements. It would be possible to make a 110 volt electric dryer, but it would require very thick wire and a very large breaker to handle the amperage that would be required. Sorry I couldn't give you better news.

Electric dryer not drying clothes

The electric dryer requires 220 volts to dry clothes but only 110 volts to turn the drum .reset your circuit breaker even if it looks ok ,if that dosent work, unplug from the wall and check where the plug wire goes into the back of the dryer and look for loose or broken wires.

New Dryer was purchased -- Tenant tells me he now requires higher voltage

Hello Paulcolletti,
I am not sure what you mean with your question.. Electric dryers typically use either 3 pole or 4 pole plugs that mate with the corresponding receptacle. If you already had an electric dryer there before, you need to make sure your power cord matches the receptacle. If it does not, most home goods stores ( like Home Depoit/ Lowes) and others carry the molded cord sets for that application and are reasonably easy to install. I fail to understand the low voltage versus high voltage comment as it pertains to a dryer. Please elaborate on this and maybe I can assist with a solution.. Good Luck...

What are your power requirements? I lived in Europe for a while and all the appliances ran on 220 VAC, 50hz. Most American appliances that use 220 VAC (like dryers and electric ranges) have 60hz timers, clocks and motors. Now...if the European standard is still true (I haven't been there in years), you can probably use your dryer, but the timing will not be accurate. Your timer will probably run slower than required.
