If the dryer itself already includes a socket outlet that was designed to power a stackable washer then you should have no problem as long as the home's Dryer Circuit, and its breakers, can support the extra Kilowatts of power which the washer will take.

To your question "Is there an adapter that would allow for separate use of the washer in its own outlet" the answer is No.

Even if the stackable washer is mounted on top of the dryer it may still be possible to plug the washer into the existing, but separate, socket outlet that is intended to power a washer. If you cannot do that then it is best that you call in a licensed electrician to advise you.




If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use a meter or voltage indicator to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
