Electrical Wiring in the Home/wiring for stackable washer and dryer
Expert: Bill Lutz - 11/30/2012
I live in an older home, built in 1950, i currently just have a washer that uses the 110v and recently purchased a stavkable washer and dryer (like you would see in an apartment) I have a 220v for my stove. How hard is it to put another 220 in or is it possible to change the cord to the one my washer uses. I dont have too much money to pay a company to come do it. Any advice or how to would be great.
Answer Hi Kacie,
This should not be too hard or expensive. I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is too easy for you to over load a wire and then you will see some real expenses. I think you contact a local electrician and see how bad the cost is before you try it yourself
