First thing to do is to remove the rear cover, and see if the inside of the cover is damp , and has a build up of fluff. if it has then get a hair dryer and thoroughly dry the element and stats, and remove any fluff that has accumulated in this area.
Try it before you fasten cover back on, if it still will not start, then disconnect the heatr element and stats, to do this, remove top cover and right hand side panel looking at it from the front.
At the left rear corner you will see the wiring going to the heater, unplug the connector and try again ,if it still trips then it could be a motor or control board and or timer prob.
Make sure all filters and vents are clean.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My dryer is getting electrical power. But when I turn the power knob onto ON, nothing happens.


it may be the door switch, but if you hear a click when you push the start button then the motor reset button tripped. You should be able to set the dryer on its front side and see the motor reset buttons as there are two one trips one resets, push the reset in it should click and then plug it in and see if that helped. Hope this helps if not feel free to ask more info as I am more then willing to help Tim

Start button is possibly shorted out. The power goes from the wall to the start button before it goes anywhere else

Hotpoint tcl770 condencer tumble dryer, just out of warantee. when turn on and start it keeps tripping the electrics. changed plug fuse etc, tried in various sockets but keeps tripping the system???


internal problem, either heater coil or sensor or motor, you will need to get it checked, but don't plug it in again, as short circuits on high current machines can be dangerous.

Dryer won't start.


Would first check the Breaker panel Breaker and see if it is tripped. Try resetting, if it trips out immediately would call an electrician.

Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Is the correct power supply available? (Electric dryers only)
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch or latches. Some models have an upper and lower latch. Both latches must be secure for the dryer to run.
Was the Start, Push to Start or Hold to Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require the Start, Push to Start, or Hold to Start button to be pressed and held for two to five seconds.
Is the Cycle Control knob set on a Sensor Dry or Timed Dry cycle? (on some models)
The Cycle Control knob must be set in a Automatic Dry or AccudryTM or Timed Dry cycle. The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.
Is Controls Locked status light on? (on some models)
Press and hold the Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Controls Locked feature.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer? (Electric dryers only)
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.
