Welcome PairOf69's,

220V should have 3 wires coming off of it. As you need two hot and one ground to supply you with 220V.

What is the AMP rating of the compressor? usually 15 to 17 Amps

Dryer plug is what 30Amp maybe 40Amp? If you have a problem with the motor you will not trip the breaker until it's too late.
