Look for 10-gauge Surge Protector Strip 120V
 
hello all,

I am looking for adding a surge protector for my gas-drier and washer machines.

Can someone give me some product models suggestion?
The one I can find through amazon are 14-gauge.

thank you

Why would you want to just protect that leave the rest of the house unprotected?
Just get a whole house surge protector.

I have issues to install whole house surge protector. 1> I don't want to touch the power panel
2> it has very limited space
3> it is more expensive to hide someone to do it

In fact, whole house surge protector is not enough b/c it only protects surge from outside.

I have purchased several http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-SurgeCu...urge+Protector

to protect other appliance. But the wall outlet used by the drier and washer can not be installed b/c such a device is too big to fit side by side.

Question> My appliances are whirlpool lgq9858pw0 dryer && gu1500xtls3 dishWasher

What wire gauge I should use to support those? I have to know this in order to choose correct Surge Protector Strip Outlet Cord.
