Dryer light bulb burned out
follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.
If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt
appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb
is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves
two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and
allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light
and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check
for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none
when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some
components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element
requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be
fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be
caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of
the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures
and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing
the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check
If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is
unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box,
or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.
