Question about Dryers
Just quit, no notice, even the light when you open the door does not work, wires and breaker all apear ok
There is probably a fuse on the main line somewhere that may have blown. Mostly not resettable but you have to replace. Try following the main wire from where it comes in up to the circuit board and you should see it. Also just to make sure the breaker is good check with a volt meter and make sure you have power coming into the dryer(on an electric two wires would have to be live on gas only one)

2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike

First clean the vent in the machine and the wall. Try the machine one time not connected to the wall, see if it works better. Carefully tighten the wire connections at the breaker, including the white. It is possible for a breaker to get weak. Your motor may be wearing out.

You have to test the voltage to verify that the breaker did reset. Unplug the dryer, and verify that you have 240 volts at the receptacle
