Cool Is a 3 prong outlet labeled as 125/250V 30A OK for a washer dryer with a 115/240

Is a 3 prong outlet labeled as 125/250V 30A OK for a washer dryer with a 3 prong receptacle.... the operating manual says that the washer/dryer needs 115/240 24.5A requirement. I'm thinking yes.... but I do not want to burn out this machine I just dragged into my house. Many thanks!

Yes it is, but if this is a new installation the circuit must be four wire.
