DLE2532W electric dryer: BLOWN CIRCUIT BREAKER

There are no signs of overheating of the dryer, the lintfilter is clean and the exhaust pipe has been disconnected to ensure free airflow.

There are no warning signs on the control panel; the dryer apparently overloads the circuit breaker and one of the the wires connected to the breaker is piping hot

The circuit breaker for the dryer opens after 90 second after the dryer has been started.

    One wire at the circuit breaker was loose and burned. Stripped off burned insulation, reconnected the wire and the dryer runs fine. Thank you for the advice.

I would check the wire at the breaker for a poor connection causing arcing and excessive heating causing the breaker to trip....with the breaker off, loosen the binding screw on the wire and check the wire for any signs of arcing. reattach the wire and tighten binding screw snugly.

another though, ensure there are no other devices connected to the wire that is heating.

My dryer we've had for about two months won't dry clothes. it heats up, but they are still wet four cycles later


I was thinking you have a bad circuit breaker. This dryer runs on a 2 pole 30 amp 240 volt breaker. The motor runs on one side of the breaker on 120vac. The heater has to have 240 volts to work correct. When that breaker is on the way out it will take a new dryer 3 or four times as long to dry the clothes. themobilian_294.jpg
If you are cleaning the lint filter out and don't have a clogged vent pipe themobilian_295.jpgthen in my opinion you have a bad circuit breaker. Seen it.

All of a sudden dryer won't come on. Checked connection, OK.


Check your circuit breakers. Your unit usually has a double circuit breaker. Find the correct circuit breaker and turn it to the off position to reset it then turn it back on.
Good luck

The dryer "lintfilter" light comes on and the dryer stops- however the lint filter is totaly clean and free from lint. how do I fix this? Sue


Sue -- LINTFILTER light without visible LINT means that either A: the internal (or exhaust) lint pathway is blocked or B: the sensor that makes sure the unit does not "overheat" is malfunctioned. Check the dryer output hose to make sure it is not plugged. Get your vacuum cleaner and make sure there is no lint buildup below the lintfilter screen. If you need more help, please ask. -- SWT

The dryer has no heat


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Select the heat setting other than Air Fluff.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty heating element. You will need to replace it.

My dryer all of a sudden will not come on. Is there a reset button on these dryers?


Your problem could be a result of several possible issues:

* voltage coming to the dryer (110 V for gas & 220 V for electric); Check circuit breaker, voltage at wall outlet, etc.
* thermal fuse (non-resettable) that has blown and shuts off the dryer typically due to overheating (may be caused by clogged exhaust system)
* timer
* motor
* Start button or door switch

You should contact an appliance service company if you have checked the circuit breaker for proper voltage.

LG Front loader Electric Dryer want heat but will run and spin


If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
