I recently moved and my sister gave me a washer and dryer. It’s a gas dryer and I found out that my basement doesn’t have a gas line. I have a gas line in the kitchen that the stove is using. Is it possible to safely get a splitter and run one hose to the stove and the other to the dryer?

  • Possibly you have to make sure the added demand of a dryer on that line is not greater than it can supply. Are you talking natural gas or propane (LP) gas?

You need to check your local codes. I wouldn't be running any hoses for any great distances. I'd extend the line with galvanized steel or black steel piping and tee off to the stove and dryer with shutoff valves. Many locations do not allow homeowners to install or modify their gas lines. Many gas companies will come out and hook up your new appliances for little or no cost and they'll also check the rest of your installation.

  • The lines won’t me long at all. The line is by a window and they would be both near one another.
