True, he probably did have a reason for it. It's right below the panel, and the one for the dryer is in the next room maybe five feet away. I'll get in touch with the homeowner and ask them. Thanks everyone!

The one in the garage and laundry room are both three prong dryer outlets.

Maybe you could take a pic of what you have? That would make things easier.

I stand corrected. The one in the laundry room is four prong and the garage one is three. I bet they did that because people rent here and have different dryers. So now I have a 4 prong outlet in the laundry room. That's 240 v right? I need to make some sort of extension to run my dryer now.

It really doesn't matter. If you want a 50 amp circuit, everything in the circuit must be rated for 50 amps, including the wire and the receptacle. A dryer circuit is 30 amps, so you will have to start from scratch, anyway.
