    WEll, your link reports an error, and you can't cut and paste a picture...you need to use the button "Upload a File" and select it for uploading.

    Not sure you'd find a cover plate for a box that had both the 120vac and 240 plugs in it. Don't think that that is a code issue, though, but I"m not an electrician!

    Yes.

    Alternatively, you could put the 120 and 240 outlets into the same 4 6-inch box.

    Yeah, you are right. 30 amp dryer outlets are wide. [​IMG]

    So it would take a 6 inch box to fit the washer and electric dryer outlets.
