This should NEVER happen. A properly installed dryer will be grounded both electrically and via chassis ground. You should IMMEDIATELY disconnect power from the dryer at the fuse/breaker panel, unplug the device and get it serviced before any further use. It is currently a fire and shock hazard!
I believe you dryer is not hooked up correctly electrically. You will need to unplug it from the wall without touching it. You may need to use a wooden broom handle or some other insulating items to accomplish this. Remember, electricity cannot flow through dry rubber, paper, cardboard, or wood. If you cannot move the dryer away from the plug so you can reach it, you will need to shut off the dryer at the breaker box or fuse box before you start to unhook it. The breaker box or fuse box should be marked on the paper on the back of the door as to which 2 circuit breakers or fuses are for the dryer, but most are not. You should get someone smart to fix this before you have a fire or someone killed . Be blessed.
first thing unplug machine and have electrical outlet checked for proper wiring. This is a safety hazard. you can buy a tool for about $5 to check them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Receptacle_tester if it passes this test then there is a wiring issue in the machine. Were you touching anything else metal when shocked? if it fails, get a professional electrician to check and repair the wiring. Do NOT use any faulty outlet as they can be dangerous.
before working on any appliance-be sure to unplug it to keep from getting shocked & damaging your appliance
problem-runs but will not heat
1.loose wiring-check terminals & wiring
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor(check linkage to motor)
4.defective timer-replace timer
5.open heater element--replace
This is a situation that you need to be very careful with. It sounds like you have a grounded heating element. If this is the case, then the current can be running through the dryer's frame and can cause electrical shock. Keep the dryer unplugged and check the heating element for continuity. If it has none, replace the heating element. BE CAREFUL. Hope this helped and best wishes.
To me it sounds like you could have the polarity reversed on the wiring. Also is the outlet that it is plugged in to grounded that alone will cause a shock to be given off, Have goods holiday, biigg53566+
