Yes, you are able to use the same power outlet only if your getting a 110 outlet for an 110 appliance meaning (gas dryer, and regular size washer). Now if your going all electric then it must be a 220 source. For your drain, USE the existing one if there is one or if you are close to a drain or sink or somewhere you can put the water then you should be set to go.

There are dryers out there that work on 110v. I had an Asko condensing dryer in an apartment a few years which ran on 110v. While it didn't work as well (it didn't dry as large of a loads that a 220v model can) it served me well enough.

Check with your landlord or manager if adding appliances or moving the location.......

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
