Stackable washer/dryer voltage/breaker question


You are correct if that is the buss orientation. Two THQP 230's would work. We need a better picture.

So each pole measures 120v to neutral correct ?
How did you measure for 240v ?.
Did you measure across the two hots ?
If you did and you are getting nothing or close to it,
Then the two hots are probably coming from the same phase.
If so this will not work !
You need two different phases for 240v.

I think he was reading voltage at the receptacle inside the house. This of course would read the same as at the breaker because the breaker is not seated properly on both busses.

take a bigger picture please, because I'm pretty sure you managed to engage that breaker to one of the locking tabs for that feed wire and that no breaker is meant to be there (at least not the one you managed to jam in).

what a mess.

Yeah, I think that may be true. At first I thought it was the first bus position, but the breaker is sitting differently from the rest, and looks like it extends past the midline of the panel. I'm not sure that's a bus position at all, and I'm pretty sure that breaker is not proper for that panel.
