Is a 2 pole, 15 Amp breaker sufficient for a new electric dryer?? What I really want to know is if you add up the amperages on each pole of the 2 pole breaker to achieve the 30 amp receommended capacity?? Or, do I need to buy a 2 pole breaker that says 30 on each pole??
Dryer needs to be on a 30A circuit. You will need #10 copper conductors. Two hots, one neutral and one grounding conductor. (i.e. 10/3g NM-B romex) You need a 4-wire cord and a 4-wire receptacle. Be sure to remove the bonding jumper from the dryer so the neutral and ground are not tied together at the dryer. If in doubt. HIRE A PRO. Money well spent.
