This is not a question about a dryer! I have a Sears 10 inch Radial Arm Saw. How do I switch the motor from 220 volts to 110??

If the motor is a dual voltage type the instructions might be printed inside the motor cover or alternatively in the saw handbook.

It is important to find the correct instructions and to follow them exactly.

I want to hook up a 220v motor and a 110v motor with one switch

this will be interesting on one switch
110 volts motor running on 220 volts will end in a flash and plenty of smoke
and a 220 volts motor running on 110 volts will over heat and smoke as well
unless you have some form of transformer to one of the motors it is a recipe for disaster
talk with an accredited electrician

I plugged my desk top to 220 volts line instead of 110 volts

Most likely the damage is too great to be repaired and if it can be repaired the cost of repairing may not be worth it.
If it was me I would put my money towards a new computer.

I need to install a new AOSmith 1 1/2 horse pump for my pool. The to lines that come from the house are both 110 volt. The pool is wired for 230 volt. Will attaching the 110 lines work for the required...

There is nothing that you can do with respect to the 220 volts vs. 230 volts and fortunately, it does not matter. There is no voltage adjustment that you can do.

The 220 volts comes from TWO DIFFERENT 110 volt lines. Typically, your breaker will handle that correctly for you, be sure that both breakers are bridged, mechanically, so when you turn one off, both go off (prevents electrocution).

I have a 220 volt crape maker from France. Can i change the cord on it to be used in a 110 outlet? Will it still heat up enough with 110 volts?

Unfortunately, it will probably not heat up enough on 110 volts. You could change the male plug on the end of the cord to fit your 220 volt air conditioner or cloths dryer female plug.

Will it be okay to connect a 110 volt laptop to a 220 volt LCD projector?

What voltage is your mains supply?
The laptop's adapter should be a multi-voltage type 110 to 240 volts input.
If your mains is 110 volts AC then the 220 volt AC LCD projector won't work unless you connect it to a step up transformer (110 to 220 volt transformer).
If your mains supply is 220 or 240 volts then both the laptop and the LCD projector will work without any problems.

My drier 110 volts was accidentally plugged to 220

The least of your problems would be a burnt out relay or internal switch which can be replaced at reasonable expense. In a worst case the motor or heating element "fried" and it'll be cheaper to buy a new dryer.
BTW 110 and 220 plugs are entirely different and a 110 plug cannot be plugged into a 220 outlet.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.
