Required for dryer plugs in older homes.
I have one on my existing dryer which is exactly like the new one. Only Sears/Installers won’t be liable for the installation if I use my old one. So ya sort of have to purchase the new one for peace of mind I guess.
Ordered at Sears online to pick up in-store. Went there and they had none in stock even though I had bought the dryer from Sears. Had to trek to ********** to get the item. Worst part is, I used reward points to pay for the item and ended up losing the points even after making two attempts (one in shore and one via email) to have my account credited.
