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.

Tripping ELCB (RCB)


sounds to me like a short circuit in the heating coil circuit. One would have to ohm out the coils.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series it only makes a lite sound when I push the start button. I won't come on. The power is good.


The Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer, however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before contacting a technician.

  1. Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet, you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed.
    Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar.
    Finally, check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it will not run.
  2. If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure that you have chosen a heated cycle.
    As above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
  3. There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged.
    Next, check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow, clean or replace the vent.
    If you used cold water to rinse the clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very absorbent.
    Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time, separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them separately.
  4. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.

The dryer will not turn on. I know I have power because the light is on. But nothing happens when I hit start


Check for a tripped circuit breaker (a ganged double breaker), sometimes only one breaker trips without tripping the other. Switch breakers off and then back on. If you have access to a voltmeter, check for 220 volts AC at the the two slanted slots in the dryer socket. Occasionally, one breaker of the pair will fail internally--replace the pair. If 220 volts is present, then problem is internal to the dryer. Usually, it is a short circuit in the heating element which causes the circuit breaker trip.

Dryer will not start


Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has circuit break er tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?

Heavy loads (e.g., jeans, etc) is tripping the circuit breaker


WOW, 10yrs was a good investment of your money. Anyhow large amp loads may be contributed to the motor or fatigued heating elements. Also the breaker can wear out if its ran loaded for extended periods. Here are a few things you can try. Check to ensure that the barrel sleeve rings are in good condition so that there would be less drag on the motor and fix the obvious. Then change your breaker out and change the electrical outlet. if your not comfortable with changing these two items DON'T DO IT.
TIP OF THE DAY--To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer. :?)

The main circuit breaker triggers when i have my electric clother dryer on for while


Hello latino,
If your problem has just started to happen ( meaning that it worked ok until recently) .. your circuit breaker itself may be starting to fail. They do have a finite life expectancy and over time, you may experience nuiscance trips. Another consideration is that the wiring coming from the circuit breaker up to the receptacle that feeds power to the dryer may have loosened up at the connection points and when that happens, those connections points become resistive and cause the dryer to require more current to maintain the same power..By requiring more current, you may be exceeding the rating of the breaker.. so those are a few things to check..
If I were there, the first thing I would do is shut off that breaker and open the circuit breaker panel ..make sure the screws that hold the wires to the circuit breaker are snug.. then close that up.. and do the same thing at the dryers receptacle on the wall and the termination points inside the dryer where the power cord connects. After that, I would reapply power and see if the problem persists.. If it does, I would remove and replace the circuit breaker.
One last thing to check might be the drag on the dryer drum.. make sure it isn't binding and requiring the drive motor to work harder ( which means more power demand) to rotate the clothes..
Those are a few areas to investigate.. Hope that helps
Regards,
Rick
