You could try and find a restring kit for a compact dryer. Good luck on that one.

Sure it's possible but I wouldn't do it.  110 volt dryers suck.  You'll need two different 110 circuits if you want to run the washer and dryer at the same time.  If you're running another 110 circuit, you might as well just run a 220 volt circuit.  If I haven't changed your mind here's the schematic.

Ok now both dudes need to be on their own dedicated line. Try running the dryer on a dedicated circuit.

Connect your neutral to line 2 and you should have heat.  If you are going to use automatic cycles, you need to bypass the drop down resistor.
