Keeping this in view, what kind of outlet does a dryer need?
Dryer – A clothes dryer will need an electrical outlet that is wired to a 240 volt circuit. The 240 volt circuits are spread throughout two wires, a neutral and a ground wire. If a dryer is plugged in to a 120 volt outlet and will not work correctly and will likely cause damage to the dryer.
where are AFCI and GFCI required? The GFCI requirements apply to receptacle outlets. The AFCI requirements apply to all outlets — where electricity is being “let out” so people can use it, if those outlets are 125V and either 15A or 20A. GFCIs apply to dwellings and to commercial and industrial applications.
Furthermore, do 220v circuits require GFCI?
I've seen a few threads elsewhere about this, and from what I can gather, you don't need a GFCI for a 220v outlet; GFCI is only for 120v 15/20amp circuits.
Do gas dryers require electricity?
In short, both clothes dryer types need electricity, but gas dryers require a gas line in the home. However, electric dryers do require a larger voltage plug.
