hot plug on washing machine


Just one other thing.....a dirty corroded blade on a plug will act as a heating element.

Yes, that's exactly what I have: a mix of 2 and 3 prong outlets and adapters. I will call an electrician.

One more question: Is it possible for an electrician to upgrade in stages so I can pay for it in stages?

I have a Federal Pacific Stablok fuse panel besides which has to go, which I learned here, thank you very much. Can the electrician start with the washing machine, which probably does have a corroded blade since it's outside under just a roof. I guess he'll know what he has to do first.

I would think some parts could be done in stages. But some of it would require both ends being done and not doing everything together might make it cost more in the long run.
