OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.
I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.
When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!
So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.
Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.
This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .
Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.
Hello mdonettaYou said, Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer
acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start
button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked
okay. Any ideas.
yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset! If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!
It might be the circuit breaker of the mains/AC line. Pls try using another outlet/source of power. Alternately, most dryers have their own circuit breaker at the back of the unit. This would appear to be a push button switch, pls try see if your unit has one and press on it.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
