Breaker keeps tripping, dryer will not come on due to this

The top of the dryer (Kenmore HE2 elite) was rubbing on the barrel. I solved the problem by removing the top and bent it back. Now the breaker keeps tripping and the unit won't stay on. What could have happened?

Take it apart again and look for a pinched wire at whatever panels that you removed.

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 have a sears kenmore gas dryer model 87592820 it keeps blowing the breaker. It was running about 1 min. then a spark flew out and it tripped the breaker. When I reset the breaker it continues to trip it....


Hi,
This sounds like you have a wire that rubbed through and is shorting out...
open up the back or where you saw the sparks come from and you will easily see the burnt mark...then you can fix it...

Do not keep trying the breaker... it is tripping to protect you and keep you safe.

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.

Kenmore Elite keeps tripping circuit breaker and small flash


Hello jaybebo84,
May be coincidental that you had a short circuit ocurr in the back panel after your wife dusted but the problem is that you now have a short circuit which will trip the breaker. If you can unplug it and slide it out to gain access to the back panel, remove the cover and look for carbon or flash burn on some of the components in that area. Usually when you get an arc like that the evidence of the component is pretty easy to identify. You may see some carbon or equivalent on a component which once located, could simply be removed and replaced. Sears usually has exploded views drawings of all their appliances and you may be able to get a copy from the store service area. Good Luck..
Regards,
Rick

Tripping circuit breaker


if the dryer trips the breaker right away its a problem with the dryer if its after a while its the breaker. call an electrician to make sure the wires are secured tight to the breaker and the breaker is rated correctly. i can almost guarantee its the breaker.
