How an Electrical Circuit is Installed for a Stack Washer and Dryer

Electrical Question: I had my washing machine looked at and the repair man said that the washing machine was not receiving enough power to one of its receptacles. Its a new washing machine in an old house. Its an over & under machine and when I swap receptacles the washer works but not dryer and vice versa. I would appreciate any suggestions.

This electrical question came from: Timothy, a Homeowner from Greensboro, North Carolina
