Hi Piochis,

 

Electric dryers use a 240 volt circuit. The outlet you have now cannot be converted.

 

The circuit will have to be rewired for a 240 volt circuit and wall outlet.  The appropriate breaker will also have to be installed in your main electrical panel.

 

I would recommend hiring an electrical contractor to do this work.

 

I hope this answers your question

 

Mike,
