Maybe you’ve just moved into your new home, or you’re simply replacing 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 sockets exactly where you need them. When you own a home, you don’t want the annoyances of a laundromat for any period, because you want the convenience that home ownership offers. But it’s worthwhile to note that installing or updating the electrical outlets in a home is not a task for the DIY individual.

Challenges of Installing Washer Dryer Hookups

The electrical outlets of today’s washers and dryers aren’t the same as the standard home outlets of 120V. This is due to the fact that these appliances need a higher voltage. If your home was built before the mid-1990s, its outlets most likely only have three prongs. Due to more stringent safety recommendations, all new homes require four-prong versions. Plus, many appliances being made today need 3- or 4-pronged power cords.
The reason for this change was because three-prong cords coupled 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 occurs, anyone in the home that touches the appliance runs the risk of electric shock.

But these changes led to the common modern-day dilemma people encounter when buying new appliances: Can the cord on the machine be changed to match the outlet in the wall? Or do I have to replace the washer dryer hookups? Do I need to add an additional circuit to the breaker panel?

These types of decisions should be made by a certified and professional electrician.
