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

No heat


Check if you soldered it correctly, if not, the relay might have been damaged, you might need a new one

Electricity NOT A DRYER ISSUE< HOUSEHOLD


Hello!
The seven outlets and one overheard light are all hooked to one of your circuit breakers.
Modern electrical codes call for this formula (7 to a circuit breaker), and your description of your problem tell me your house/apartment is correctly wired.
Here's the fix.
Find your "fuse box" and open the door.
Look for a circuit breaker that is not EXACTLY lined up with all the other switches.
Turn that one off and back on again.
If you cannot see any circuit breakers that are not exactly in line with all the others, you will be needing to shut them all off and turn them back on one at a time until you can find the offender.
You may need to repeat this a time or two.
This should fix it.
If not, the next step is sort of dangerous, so you will need someone who knows about electricity.
If this doesn't work, the next step is to remove the square metal inner cover and look at all the circuit breakers to see if a wire has come out of one, perhaps next to the one that was shut off buy the repair person.
Be blessed.

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.

If the dryer is tripping the circuit breaker, it's possible that the circuit breaker itself is malfunctioning. or a wire is loose to breaker.
There could be a loose connection in the outlet. A loose connection in the outlet could consist of wiring that is not functioning and is unable to properly manage current. The current needed by the dryer is being mishandled by the loosely connected outlet and drawing more power from the electrical system, tripping the circuit breaker. check outlet to find out !

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.
