As mentioned in a previous post, I'm planning on stacking my washer and dryer. This will involve moving the dryer about 8' from the nearest 220V outlet.

So I was wondering: is it safe to use a really, really long cord and route it overhead or around the perimeter of the room? If not, I guess I'll hire an electrician to install a new 220 outlet (which would be on the same wall as the circuit breaker). I wanted to see if I could safely cheat, at least for a while, until I have enough money to pay an electrician.

What do you folks think?

Joseph

It may be hard to find but I stock a 10 ft. dryer cord...I just happened to be at my supplier one day and they had them.... I could count at least 5 times I could have used one so I picked up a couple...my suppliers part #'s are 05650 on the 3 wire 10 ft. and 01000 on the 4 wire 10 ft.  these may or may not be able to help you going into your own parts store locally...I tried both #'s on repair clinic and they didn't come up..either of these should be suitable for your application if you can find them

I don't see that you'd have any problems with a long dryer cord. 
We have a 25+ footer in our shop to test units with.
