I hope this is the right place to put this. I would like to put a washer and dryer in my apartment - the ones I am looking at will fit nicely... except one small problem. While the washer runs off of a regular three prong 110v plug, the dryer requires one of those 220v giant plugs with 4 prongs. Naturally there isn't one to be found in my apartment...except the ones my refrigerator and stove and such are plugged into. So maybe this is a really stupid question, but is it possible to just get an extension cord for the - lets say stove plug - and then plug the stove and dryer in at the same time? Obviously I couldn't use both at the same time, I know - but it is the only thing I can think of other than seeing if it is possible to just somehow replace the cord on the dryer itself to a regular cord. I found some instructions online for doing that, that said it is safe, the dryer just takes longer to dry...but it seems like it would be a fire hazard? Not to mention voiding the heck out of the warranty. Any ideas? I don't suppose there is some sort of converter I can plug the dryer into that will just step it down to a 110v and let me use a regular plug?
