Can I use my washer electric hookup for the dryer
Newbie poster here - though I've been reading posts for a while and found this forum very helpful.
Just purchased my first home - there are hookups in the garage for a washer and dryer. I believe the previous owners had a gas dryer b/c there is a gas hookup provided.
There is an electrical outlet closer to the washer slot. How do I know if I can use this for an electric dryer? I know that electric dryers are 240V while the washers are 120V. Is there an easy way for me to figure out whether I can use this outlet for an electric dryer or does an electrician need to look at it?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
