I am running wire for a standard Kenmore stove/oven and wire for a stackable washer dryer unit. Both runs are less than 50'. What amp breaker and guage wire is needed?
A "standard" cooktop only, or a single wall oven, will typically be on a 30A-120/240V circuit, requiring 10/3 cable. Keep in mind, I have seen many newer cooktop models that require a 40A circuit. It all depends on the kW rating.
A free-standing range, rated 12kW or less, can typically be wired to a 40A-120/240V circuit using 8/3cu or 6/3al cable.
A typical electric dryer, and most combined stackable units, will require a 30A-120/240V circuit using 10/3 cable.
This chart indicates that for a common household electric stove/oven at 240V, up to 30A, a 10/3 wire is proper.
