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)

SOURCE: dryer won,t get hot

It's not a circuit breaker your chasing. Check your vent to see if it's clean. You could have a bad element.

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

SOURCE: Breaker trips but is ok now on low heat

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.

SOURCE: breaker was inadvertantly tripped by person which shut dryer off when reset breaker dryer wont work

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

Kenmore Series 80 Dryer won't start after Circuit breaker was tripped


A breaker thrown that many times indicates a serious electrical problem. You need to have the problem taken care of by an electrician. You should be worried about the safety of yourself and your family.
That being said, I would guess that breaker has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Clean Lint Filter Light Keeps Dryer from starting


Evidently the fuse blew for some reason.
Keep the dryer unplugged from power for one hour or so. If it still does start, you will have to take apart the dryer, check the fuse, check the thermal fuse, and test the wirings inside.
If you need to call arepairman use the number listed on the owner manual.

I have a maytag gas dryer mgdx500xw, with door open and light on, circuit breaker blows, with door closed it does not, if I remove the bulb, it won't blow either way. Weird?


the return neutral wire from the bulb has to have a bare spot on it touching the metallic case somewhere in the dryer,when you remove the bulb you just isolate the bare spot on the neutral wire from the hot wire

Maytag dryer 2003 was working great I took one dried load out put another in and started the dryer. Working just fine then I found a wet garment that I dropped so I opened dryer door added this item...


When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

check the actual door switch,, you can jumper it to see if this is the problem, Just connect the 2 wires together , if this cures the problem replace the switch

Dryer will not start,put a new start button,


The dryer is electric? not gas? If so you may have 110 and 1 side and not on the other. Reset the breaker and make sure you have 110v on each hot leg. You say start button I assume you mean door switch for the light? Have you checked the bulb? If this is already yes to this point open the top up and look at the wires coming to the door switch 1 of them is most likely chewed into by a mouse or something. the light has to have power to it all the time the door is open no power no light because I dont believe it gets any power except from the main power terminals not the timer or anything else .

Dryer has power, but no signs of it.


Measure each 'leg' (neutral to hot) of the power at the dryer. Before holding the switch and after. If the 120v 'disappears' or drops at all, the circuit breaker in your house panel may be bad or there is a bad connection at the breaker or plug receptacle.
