There is a possibility that your machines may not work properly in the usa as they generate electricity at a different frequency than uk 60 hertz usa 50 hertz uk also most of the equipment in the usa is 120 volts not 230

Only in the UK and Australia. The fuse in in the plug or in the fused spur that is hard wired. In the USA and Canada, it would be a normal wall outlet covered by a breaker.

My condo came with an already stacked electric washer and dryer combo which only required one 3 prong outlet. Now that we want to replace the broken machine to a stackabled front loading washer dryer,...


If the "3-prong" outlet to which you refer is a standard 110V outlet then adding another is very straightforward. It is quite common, though, for dryers to require a 220V outlet which is a different deal entirely (washers normally require only 110V). If that's the case (one needs 110, the other needs 220) then you probably want to consult a handy neighbor or a pro. If both need 110, then the first potential complicating factor is the size of the junction box the outlet is in. If it's a 2-gang box with one outlet in it, adding another outlet is easy - just add it to the box. If it's a 1-gang box (i.e., it's filled by the one outlet) then you'll have to replace the box before adding an outlet and again you'd probably want to enlist a handy neighbor or pro to help. The second potential complicating factor is the size of the breaker. If both machines want 110 and you add an outlet you might - *might* - be overloading the circuit (without knowing what machines you're talking about, it's an open question), in which case you'd have to add another circuit to the box for the additional outlet - again, a handy neighbor or pro can help with that.

So, in summary: if both machines use a standard 110V 3-prong plug adding another outlet is usually simple - you could even use a heavy-duty outlet multiplier. If either machine needs 220, see a pro or a DIYer.

As to what getting a pro might cost: I'm sorry, I have no idea. That depends on where you are and how difficult the job is. I can't even give you an estimate of how much it would cost me here 'cause I do all that sort of stuff myself.

I hope this was helpful to you, Helen! Good luck!

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!

Thers no power to my washing machine.changed the fuse and theresstill no power.what do i do ? thank you emma


Hi emma... Unplug the machine from it's current outlet and use a heavy duty extension cord to plug it into another outlet that you know works [plug a blow dryer in to check it].

If the washing machine works then you know the problem is in the outlet or the wiring to the outlet. IF the washing machine still doesn't work you know the problem is within the washing machine itself. Possibly the lid switch or a fuse within the machine. J.

ASKO 7000 series washer drum stopped rotating. Smelled of burning. Could not turn the drum by hand. Guessing a burned out bearing as electronics and pump still work and are trying to turn steel drum. ...


check inside your washer for nails or other objects . I already seen a nail fall down in one of the basket holes and the nail stuck into the outer tub not allowing the basket to spin. If you dont see anything in the basket holes, then it is your bearings. The burning smell is coming from your belt. The motor is spinning but your basket is not. It is cheaper to buy a new washer. In ordered to fix your washer you have to rebuild it. The bearing are built into the outer tub of the washer.

Power cords


You don't. You can either have an electrician install a 220V socket for it or get a special cord/switchbreaker to share it with your dryer socket.
