In My Professional Opinion

Hello DLUKAS. Welcome to my Gas Appliances forum and our Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

The simple answer is: possible but not worth the time and costs.

Best bet is to sell the appliance, pass it off to another family member or donate it to a favorite charity.

If daughter is planning staying stay awhile, buy a good used electric dryer from a local used appliance store.

If her duration there will be or is planned to be a short term stay, keep the existing dryer and use the provided coin operated machines. You'll be miles ahead dollar wise this way.

Thank you for your response. I kinda guessed at that after researching the Internet.

Looks like I'll have to do a little shopping for daughter and, by the way, my new grandaughter!!!!

Cool Used dryers

Normally a better deal can be found from and induvudual seller rather than an appliance store.
Most of the time an electric dryer can be had for $100 or less.
A dryer from a store wil most likely come with a 30 day warranty but will cost a bit more.
