Tumble Dryer Through Extension? Or Cut & Extend Wire?

Posted 6th Jan 2017
Hello,

Ive read a few things about Tumble Dryers on extension cables then talking about dedicated shed power supplies.

So I do have dedicated shed power (i.e. a nice double socket wired professionally in the shed). But the cable on the tumble dryer is about a metre. Its tiny.

Can I run a short extension cable (set to the right power load) to the socket?

Or can I cut the wire of the tumble dryer and simply extend it with the right type of wire?
