Hi,
The 220V should work... anything from 220-240 should be okay.
The current draw will be 20-25 amps. so a 30 amp breaker is needed...
The wattage will be somewhere between 5000-6000 watts...


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Will Freezer run overseas on a transformer?


Step Down Voltage Converters You can use this link to find a converter that should work. There are several other sites as well. You need to get a converter with enough wattage capacity to operate the freezer. I recommend you get one with a somewhat higher wattage rating than the freezer's wattage rating. For instance if the freezer is rated at 700 watts, I would get at least a 1000 watt converter. Good Luck !!! and Bon Voyage !

My friend has dryer #LER4634JQ1,has had problems with power to the home,electician states one side of electric panel not getting current.Dryer has power,tumbles but won't heat,heating element tested OK....


Yes, an electric dryer requires 220VAC in order to heat.

I would recommend you begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). IMPORTANT: If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good at the terminal block with the dryer plugged in, you have an internal electrical problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord. Replacement power cords can be purchased at any hardware store for about $20.

NOTE: If the wires at the terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the hot leads. The center conductor is neutral or ground.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, which is tapped off the input voltage. The heating circuits require the full 220-240VAC in order to work. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer will run, but won't heat.

Perform these steps and post back and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

We just moved and hooked up our dryer and it wont dry our clothes


1ST CHECK POWER OUTLET IF YOU HAVE ELECTRIC DRYER, IT SHOULD HAVE 220V COMING OUT FROM OUT LET. IF POWER IS OK AND HEATING BUT LONG TIME TO DRY THEN CHECK YOU DRYER VENT.
IF YOYR DRYER VENT AND POWER IS OK, THEN IT COULD BE ONE OF THE HI LIMIT OR YOU HAVE BAD HEATING ELEMENT

Looking for kwh use for a dryer


KWH = The Wattage of the Unit multiplied by the length of time used.. IE: a 1000 Watt Unit that is used for One Hour is equal One Kilowatt Hour. (1000Watts = 1KWatt) Wattage is The input Voltage multiplied by the Current draw. IE: 115Volts the unit draws say 4Amps equals, 115x4=660 = 660Watts.

Can I connect a European HP5990 to the US power grid?? 210V-110V


Many manufacturers design equipment with varying voltages in mind, and may list an ability to handle input ranging from 110-240 volts, indicating that it will work in Europe and the United States. In addition, the equipment is usually rated at 50/60 hertz, and will function on either cycle. However, some devices, especially hair dryers, are designed to function at either 110/60 or 220/50. If this is the case, a voltage converter is necessary.
If this is the case, look at the wattage requirement of the device, which should also be listed. When buying a voltage converter, be certain to get one with a wattage which has a higher rating than the device you are plugging in, to prevent electrical malfunction. Some electronics also require more energy at start up than in a running or standby mode, and if this is the case the wattage rating of the voltage converter should account for 120% or more of the listed wattage need of the device....Setanta

Where is the circuit breaker or fuse on a Kenmore Gas Dryer?


no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your dryer.....you need the full 220volts to run heaters....with voltage meter you checkwires on the plug OUTLET...or inside back cover REDwire to WHITEwire =110v.........BLACKwire to WHITEwire =110v.....REDwire to BLACKwire =220v. you probably have aBAD 220V. 30 amp circut breaker..or if still using FUSES one is burnt out (In house electric panel) or burnt off RED or BLACKwire in back of dryer.....

Electric plug for the dryer.


there is NO such adaptor.. you were given anelectric dryer, electric dryers require a 220v outlet, not an ormal 110v house outlet. you would need to call an electricin to run you a 220v line to use this dryer

Using dryer in 220V country


There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

Dryer won't heat


The voltage first a unit needs 220v to heat but only 110v to run check for proper voltage at the plug first
