Prob is caused by bad or loose connection in plug top or socket the m/c plugs into.
Replace plug and if there are scorch marks or discolouring of the socket, then replace socket.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Tip

Electric Dryer power connections



The supply cord on an electric dryer can be 3 wire or 4 wire,
depending on the existing receptacle. All new construction
must have 4 wire receptacles for dryer hook ups.
At the back of the dryer you will see a set of three
terminals. The outside terminals are for connecting the
outside wires of the cord. In a 4wire hook up, the center
terminal is for the center, insulated, white wire, the
neutral. The bare copper or green wire of the 4wire cord
gets connected above these terminals to a lug or stud on
the body of the dryer. There may be a strap there. For a
4wire cord connection this strap is connected to the stud
only.
The change for a 3wire connection is that the center green
wire of the 3wire cord connects to the center of the three
power terminals along with the grounding strap from the
dryer body above.

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago


Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

Lg troom dle 3777w dryer does not turn on!!!


Sounds like you have 110 volts going to the dryer, you need 220 volts for a dryer to operate normally, check for propper voltage at the back of the dryer where the power cord connects to the terminal block, then if all is good there check at the receptacle on the wall that the dryer is plugged into for correct voltage there, look for bad wire connections, or burnt wire connections or obvious signs that don't appear normal, also don't forget to double check your circuit breaker at your homes electric supply panel. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Wont start till I pull on the cord to make connection.checked cord with volt meter,its o.k.help. stampvs@yahoo.com


If you have unplugged the unit and performed a continuity (resistance) check from the end of the power cord to where it connects to the terminal block at the back of the appliance, then the next logical step is to perform a voltage check of the wall receptacle itself. If the voltage at the receptacle is good, but you are having connectivity issues with the appliance plugged in, the receptacle terminals may have become loose, or you may have a power cord that has a loose or broken wire. This intermittent connectivity can cause the receptacle and/or power cord to heat up and cause a fire. With the appliance unplugged, connect an ohmmeter to either end of the power cord and perform a continuity check. Move the power cord to see if the readings are constant. If you have intermittent resistance readings, you have a bad power cord. If the power cord still checks good, then I would recommend having an electrician check your wall receptacle before using the appliance again. If you still have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

My dryer sparks when i push the start button.


Hello www_jaymepri,
The fact that you can see one of the wires is burnt suggests ( that it is a wire on the power cord). If that is not true, please elaborate on exactly which wire you saw that was burnt. I am assuming it is the power cord and will walk you thru changing it. First off, you need to unplug that cord from teh power receptacle. If there is any question regarding the insulation on the dryer power cord, I would encourage you to remve or disable power to the receptacle in your circuit breaker box. Once power has been disabled, unplug the dryer cord from the receptacle. Make note of the plug end and determine it is a 3 prong or 4 prong configuration. If unsure, cut that cord off the dryer and bring it with you when you get a replacement. Most home good departement stores liek Home Depot or Lowes sell replacement power cords for this very purpose. Once you get a replacement cord, slide the dryer away from the wall so that you have ample rooom to get to the back of it.
Note where the existing ( original ) cord penetrates thru the back of the dryer cabinet ( normally thru a pass thru with a cable clamp). Loosen the cable clamp screws to free the cord up and also remove the access cover near it so that you can see where it is wired in. With the cover removed, you should see a terminal block where the power cord lugs are connected. Make note of the colors associated with these connections. They are normally red, white, black and/or green. The red and black lines are the actual supply line ( power) and are commonly terminated on either side of the neutral line ( normally a white line). The green wire is normally the ground connection and is tied to the dryer frame someplace. The ground wire termination varies from mfr to mfr and model to model but the end result is that it is bonded to the frame of the dryer. So, when installing the replacement cord, pass it thru the cable clamp and over to the terminal block. Then install one wire at a time and based on the colored ends to match what you presently have. Make sure you tighten the screws that hold the wire lugs snuggly .. Loose connections here, have been known to cause resistive junctions and get hot enough to cause fires so make sure these screws are tight. Then, tighten the cable clamp so that it locks the cord in place and doesn't slide freely inside that clamp.
When all wires have been installed, plug in the cord to the receptacle and switch on the circuit breaker. Before positioning the dryer back against the wall, try running it for a minute or two without any clothes in it to make sure it operates correctly ( heats up and the drum rotates) The exhaust from electric dryers ( albeit, not healthy) can be vented into a room for a minute or two while you test things. Gas dryers should not be allowed to vent into a room. Hopefully this will resolve your problem. Feel free to send me a follow up notice if you are experiencing another problem not associated with the cord.
Regards,
Rick

Power Suply Cord


If the cord is the ONLY item you need and NOT the terminal block in the dryer, then Home Depot sells replacement cords with a molded plug attached as well as ring lugs on the opposite end for terminating them on the dryer block. You'll need to know if you are using a 3-prong or 4- prong set up in order to get the correct cord. Hope this helps..

What is a receptacle?


When you plug something into a conventional duplex receptacle (the type that receives two appliance plugs), and the device doesn't work, trouble shooting the problem is fairly simple. For large receptacles that run on 220 to 240 volts, such as ranges and dryers and air conditioners, call an electrician unless you're well-versed in electrical repairs and safety issues. Always check when installing if the appliance is rated from 15 to 50 amps, 240 volts, and 20 to 50 amps, 120/240 volts. They have two hot wires (red and black) and a separate grounding wire. Receptacle basics Conventional duplex receptacles have two places to plug in electrical cords or devices. Each of those two places includes one narrow slot, one wide slot, and a semicircular hole. The narrow slot is the "hot" side, connected to the black wire of the electrical system. The wide slot is the "neutral" side, connected to the white wire. And the semicircular hole is the ground, connected to a bare or green wire or the electrical system's ground. Many electrical plugs have one wide blade and one narrow blade (and, in some cases, a ground plug) that match the receptacle's slots to insure that the circuit is properly connected to the electrical device. Wires may be attached to screws on each side of the receptacle or plugged into terminal holes in the back of the receptacle. Whether wires attached to screw terminals or are pushed into rear-mount terminals, the screw terminals on the sides of the receptacle are hot (charged) so don't touch them!
