I hope I'm wrong and things have been fixed, but when I lived in the U.S.,
dryers had 120 volt timers and 240 volt heaters, so the outlets were
wired hot-neutral-hot instead of the correct hot-ground-hot. 

Not a big difference if you have the old fashioned 240 volt split at ground
wiring, but if you have a whole house surge protector which we did in the
U.S., or a GFCI (which we have on the whole apartment BEFORE the main, here)
it could make a world of difference.

I may be an old fart, but I'm a high-tech, up to date old fart. :-)
