So been researching for two days online but can't find anything close to an answer, which tells me I probably can't do it, but trying to figure out why.
I have a 1950's house that I just moved into with 100A service. A receptacle for a dryer was never installed, and there is only one receptacle in the garage (which I would like more), and the main panel is out of slots.
I would like to install a sub-panel on the otherside of the wall where my stove currently is. The stove is fed by a 60A breaker, 6AWG AL 3 wire. Can I "steal" that wire, install it to sub-panel, than feed my dryer (30A) and stove (60A) off the subpanel (and possibly a few receptacles for the garage). I realize that if I run everything at once I will pop the 60A in the main, but other than that I can't see any issues with it, but also don't know NEC.
Hopefully the above makes sense (it does in my head).
