Maybe you’ve just moved into your new home, or you’re simply upgrading your appliances, and you can’t plug them into your existing electrical outlets. Maybe the socket doesn’t match your power cord, or there might not be any in the place where you need them. When you own a home you don’t want the annoyances of a Laundromat for any period of time, because you expect the convenience that home ownership offers.
But it’s important to note that installing or updating the electrical outlets in a home is not a task for the DIY individual.
Installing Washer Dryer Hookups
Because of the high voltage needs of these appliances, their electrical outlets differ from standard home 120V ones. Clothes dryers actually require a 240V socket which can have a 3 or 4 prong power cord. If your home was built before the mid ’90s most likely the outlet will only have 3 prongs. Due to more stringent safety guidelines, all new homes require 4 prong versions.
The reason for this change is that the older 3 prong cords combined the neutral and ground wires into a single prong. This created the possibility for current flowing onto the ground wire, which could electrify the frame of the appliance. If this occurred, anyone who touched the appliance runs the risk of electric shock.
But these changes led to the common modern day dilemma when buying new appliances: Can the cord on the machine be changed to match the wall? Or do I need to replace the washer dryer hookups? Or even add an additional circuit to the breaker panel?
This is a decision that needs to be made by a certified and professional electrician.
