Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I have a whirlpool front load dryer. I plugged in the dryer to the out let and heard some humming, then a click, then nothing. The lights do not come on, nothing. I opened up the outlet and saw the wires were incorrect according to the panel on the back of the dryer. The white (neutral) was not on the center of a 3 way recepticle like it should have been. Is there a reset, or did I burn something up?
Did you get the wiring of the outlet checked out? Did the breaker for the outlet trip? In some cases there are safety systems built into appliances. Not all but some. This may consist of a fuse. Not the same as your car but works the same.
I would get a serviceman out there to look at it. And an electrician to verify the wiring.
One last note here. Sometimes when a wire is loose but not disconnected and it gets a little power through it, it will short out. Can cause all sorts of strange happenings.
