First of all, no it is not 220V.
Your machine requires only 120V AC - 60 Hz.
You will find this information on page 4 of the Installation Guide.

Here is the main ONLINE SUPPORT page for your model:

Most of your dryers are 220V and some can be run on 110V.

What is required to use it as far as electrical outlet.


Dryers come in both 110V and 220V.
If you plug a 220V dryer into a 110V socket, it will run very slow.
If you plug a 110V dryer into a 220V socket, it will burn up.
If you can find a 220V extension cord, then you should be able to use it.

Can I plug GE dryer GTDP250EMWW directly to 220v? the manual says that the power rating of this model is 110/220v.


If the dryer is electric and bought in the United States then you can plug it in. The 110/220 power rating basically means that some parts if the dryer use 110v. All 220v is is 2 110v independent circuits sharing the same common ground.

I have a kenmore 99701 series combo w/d. they tell me they are all 110. told them 220. neeed to know for sure as cord was taken off and screws missing and loose. don't know for sure and if grounding is...


Well for sure the washer is going to be 110v. Only electric dryers are 220v!. If your dryer doesnt have a gas connection on it then it is a electric 220v dryer. If it has gas connection then it is 110v gas dryer. there is no such thing as a 220v gas dryer!!!.

NO HEAT . I CHANGED THE HEATING ELEMENT,


Check to ensure you have 220v A/C to the dryer.
The dryer will run on 110v but will not heat.
Ck. the dryer cord where it connects to the dryer.
Some times one of the terminals on the cord may have burned up due to a bad connection.
Electric dryers are not sold with power cords since there are several different types of 220V outlets.

You may have a bad house fuse, Circuit breaker or 220V outlet.

I have both washer n dryer that are 220v 4 prong each but theres only one 220v 4 prong wall outlet. do they make splitters for this ?


I would say no. I have never heard of a 220V washing machine, as a washing machine has no need for 220V. In any case though you would need to get the appropriate wire, cord and outlet and install a separate circuit for the washing machine.

Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?


If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.

Dryer won't heat


It could be a defective thermostat or heating element(In most of the cases it is the heating element).Open the service panel and check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heating element tags. If you can read 115/220V on its tags, it should be replaced. In case you can't read 115/220v on its tags, you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
