A: This is the wrong receptacle for a clothes dryer circuit. A clothes dryer receptacle is configured differently.The branch circuit wiring should be checked for a rating of 30 amps minimum and should have four wires coming into the box. If this receptacle you showed is presently wired then it is possible it may be an older three wire dryer circuit which is no longer permitted by Code for new construction/installation since 1996. I am surprised a dryer was previously connected to it. I would advise having an electrician inspect and upgrade the entire circuit for your peace of mind. I hope this is helpful to you.
A: we agree with the community answer and highly recommend having a certified electrician to inspect and upgrade to current code.
A: Checking the NEMA charts indicates it?s a NEMA 10-50. I hope this information is helpful.
