Re: Dryer not working
If, after a cool-down period, it can be re-started with same problem as stated, then the heating coil is in error. remove back panel and locate the heating element. Look for all electrical insulators to be not cracked and look for heating coil to be not stretched out or bulging and close to any other metal object. The coil can be fixed by pulling taut where it bulges and re-connecting it to itself so as to form a shorter length of coil. If insulators cracked, they must be replaced.

if you reset the breakers, and just have no heat, but drum turns, the heat coil broke. if the double breaker only trips one side, the coil is touching the machine.. The breaker should have a little bar connecting both levers..if it does not have. go get one that does.
There are a couple of things that you can check. FIRST go to the electrical box where the circuit breaker or fuse for the dryer is. Sometimes on half of the circuit breaker is tripped allowing the controls of the dryer to work, but not the heating element. Turn off the breaker and turn back on. Or replace the fusees. If this does not work, then you may have a loos wire or a burned out heating element. Sometimes there is a bad high temperature switch. Do the circuit breaker or fuse first. If the washer did not spin out the water well enough, the water can short the element to trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse.
could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw
First clean the vent in the machine and the wall. Try the machine one time not connected to the wall, see if it works better. Carefully tighten the wire connections at the breaker, including the white. It is possible for a breaker to get weak. Your motor may be wearing out.
Thanks for the question Your problem is with your breaker its weak and wont hold you reset it it works againfor a while Happens a lot When this happens again touch the breaker you will feel its hot also check the connections at dryer and at box where you plug your dryerin see if the prongs of the cord are lost its copper color . thanks for the question the appliance docs
