You will need an electrician.

No. That dryer draws a maximum of 7200 Watts. The regular 120V outlets around your home can supply 1800W. So any type of converter will not work.

If you have an electric range, the outlet for that is the only outlet in the apartment big enough for this. You can make an adapter if you really want to go down that road. How to do that has been answered a number of times on this site. Keep in mind this will involve pulling the oven out every Tim you want to do a load. If it is gas you are out of luck.

Really you have two good options:1) Have the correct outlet installed. You shouldn't do this yourself for liability reasons (Burning down apartment complexes tends to be pricy.) Your landlord may install one for you if you are nice, and, more than likely, will let you have one installed if you pay for it.

2) Sell your old dryer and buy one that matches the hookups. You'll have to see which is fiscally wise.

Can 240V washer run on 120V outlet?


Are stackable washer dryers available to fit a regular wall plug or do they require a special outlet?

Usually a stackable washer and dryer system will need a special outlet. Dryers usually run on a 220 outlet so they will need a special outlet installed where you plan to place your washer and dryer.

I wired into the 20A washer breaker for additional outlet plug for a 15A air compresser but when the washer is turned on the breaker is thrown why and the compressor is not on?

Could be anything at fault. Unplug the compressor and try using your washer. If it works, then you have a fault with your compressor. If it still doesn't work, do what should have been done in the first place: call an electrician.

I have a stackable that plugs into the dryer but the 220 outlet and washer hookups are separate in my new home Is there an adapter that would allow for separate use of the washer in its own outlet?

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 NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.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.
