Question about Whirlpool WED5800S Electric Dryer
Everytime the dryer door opens it flips the breaker. I flip the breaker back and the dryer works fine. This has only been happening the last 2 weeks. The dryer is about a year old.
There is a short to ground somewhere.
Most likely where any wires go through the cabinet into the door or inside the door where a hinge or other moving part ir rubbing it.
Disconect power (unplug it) and inspect all wiring close to those areas for worn spots. If you have an OHM meter, you can ohm each wire to ground and see which one is shorted, then trace it back to the problem area.
