Guide to 120/240 Volt Wiring for a Dryer Circuit

[ad#block]Electrical Question: We have a GE Electric dryer (Model- DBLR333EEEWW) says inside door 120/240Volt 60hz and then under that 120/208V 60hz. It has the NEMA 10-30R 30AMP power cord already attached. I also purchased the three prong power outlet to install that fits this cord.

We will be installing this ourselves, if it is even possible, so any advice you can give will greatly appreciated.

Thanks much Dave!
