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

Our machine has suddenly stopped do they have a fuse thats replaceable


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.

Can I use the charger with the 220 in UK ?


Unless it is rated for 220-50/110-60, you will need the converter. Besides the 110V US plugs won't plug into the 200V UK outlets.

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!

Bought a singer from the state but cannot be used in australia what should i do?


If it is an electronic or computerized machine, you are out of luck. USA has 110 volt 60Hz current, Australia has 220 volt 50Hz. A transformer can change 220 to 110 volts, but it cannot change 60Hz to 50Hz.

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!

Maytag Dryer Model ALE868QAW given to me has no manual -only the timer rings nothing else-plugged into 220 outlet


You high limit is mounted on the heating element. Very simple machine to service. Pop the bottom panel off therethemobilian_1156.jpgThe red klixon is the 250f limit and the smaller klixon is the thermal fuse. It dies and she won't run at all. Of course it could be the door switch also. themobilian_1157.jpg

I have a service manual and more HERE

Whirlpool stacker washing machine works dryer doesn't


The problem is probably with the outlet. The washing machine motor is 120 v and the dryer is 220 v. If one pole of the two pole breaker is bad you could end up with the symptoms you have. I have seen this happen before. go to the circuit breaker and push it all the way to off (it may feel like you are crunching something inside...don't worry) then turn it back on and try the dryer. If this doesn't work, unplug the unit and test the outlet with a voltage tester. you should read 220-240 volts across the two slots and 120 volts from each slot to ground. If not, it is time to call an electrician.

Kenmore Dryer 697267


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 .
