If its tripping your breaker either the motor is seized for some reason (easily tested by trying to turn the motor pulley by hand), or something in it is shorted out, most likely thing to short out and trip a house breaker is the heating element.

You can easily test the heating element as the possible cause by taking the 2 wires off the element connector, tape up these wires so it doesn't short out, plug the dryer in and try to run it. If its the heating element shorted out then the dryer will now run without tripping your breaker but of course not heat. If so replace the element.

Hi, have you checked the breaker? It would be a 220 breaker meaning a double handle or heavy duty one in your breaker box. look for one that is slightly out of line or has a small red dash showing..flip it back and forth to re-set.

We flipped the breakers in our fuse box to do some wiring, when we flipped breakers back--our electric dryer will not start, but the light is on inside the dryer when I open the door


Hello- I would check the dryer outlet and confirm you are getting 220V. As well, flip the dryer breaker on an off again (it should be a double style breaker, 2 singles linked) sometimes they are sticky. Let me know if it still doesn't work. Best regards.

Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit...


OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

Dryer flips breaker everytime


There is a short to ground somewhere.

Most likely where any wires go through the cabinet into the door or inside the door where a hinge or other moving part ir rubbing it.

Disconect power (unplug it) and inspect all wiring close to those areas for worn spots. If you have an OHM meter, you can ohm each wire to ground and see which one is shorted, then trace it back to the problem area.

Whirlpool Electric Dryer Won't Start


Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
