The fuse may not be good. Check continuity with a test lite or Ohm meter. Try turning the breaker off 2 or 3 times and if it still dosn't come on you may have a short somewhere in the dryer and its flipping the breaker off like it should. Test with a test lite or a volt meter. No power check both main power legs to ground and see if one reads grounded It should because the motor used is a 110v usually only the elements are 220.

If no power when checked you'll have to dig and find the short but remember to remove the motor from your search so you can look for grounds on the heater circuit.

    Check for the power before plugging in the dryer if you have it and plug it in then you have nothing retest it and if it has no power again your problem is in the dryer somewhere.

Buttons, sounds, lights all go on but the dryer will not dry


Hello toofdr - Often this occurs because either a fuse from the fuse box is blown or the switches on the breaker tripped, depending on your house. If your house uses fuses, there are two house fuses that supply voltage to the dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two fuses is blown, the unit may turn on but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. However, if the house has circuit breakers, there may be two breakers with switches that supply voltage to the dryer and if one is tripped the unit as well will experience this issue. The heater of a dryer requires 220 to 240 volts to operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household breaker to the off position. Wait approximately two minutes, turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If the issue persists, it could also potentially mean a number of other things: defective cord, wiring, control board or door switch. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the dryer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

I purchased a new WED9400SU electric dryer and it work fine for a few cycles but all of a sudden the start button does not light up and therefore it will not start no matter what I do. I've unplugged all...


alright, make sure that the door switch/sensor isn't broken and that it is closing all of the way. Try turning the dial on the dryer around a few times and seeing that it clicks and try it in a different cycle and see if it starts.

let me know if this still doesn't work and we can try a few other things. If it is new and you find something that is damaged then it can probably be taken back and swapped. Also, your warranty might also cover a house visit to check it out if it still won't work after doing the above which I would look into by giving the place a call.

Please let me know what you do and check and whether it helps or not and I will give you a few other things you can do, thanks

Check voltage at dryer plugin. If no voltage go to breaker panel and reset breaker by making sure you move breaker switch fully to the off position and then you will feel tension as you turn breaker back on.If it kicks back off you will need to turn off main breaker and open dryer outlet and probably clean it out.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

I own a Maytag Atlantic that is only blowing cold air no matter what cycle I set it in also when I open the door the light is not turning on, could this be related and what the causes may be?


Hi,


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.


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


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Dryer not heating


Answer Did you select an Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature option?
The Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature does not add heat to the dryer. Expect loads dried with the Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature to take longer to dry. Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections.
Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuses or reset the circuit breakers. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer?
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. Review the Installation Instructions to make sure that the power supply cord is properly installed.

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.
