Best Answer

The 220 DRYER outlet is probably rated at 30 amps or more. You can't really use 20 amp or 15 amp outlets with 30 amp breakers. You'd need to change the breaker or put additional breakers in the line. You would be better off running a new, 15 amp or 20 amp line from the breaker panel with the appropriate sized wire and breaker and keep the 220 volt outlet in place.
