    Default Adding dryer to existing circuit

    I have one 220v dryer and I need to add a second. The existing dryer has it's own breaker and box between the main breaker box and the dryer. Can I use this intermediate box for both dryers or do I have to run another circuit from the main breaker box? Thanks.

    Depends on what is in the breaker box. Is the sub box just a disconnect for the dryer or does it have space to add more breakers? What size breaker feeds the sub box?

    I agree with Chris. To add, the conductor size is also a concern? Quote: What may look right may only be a smoke screen.
