The dryer keep tripping the breaker

When I start the dryer, After a will of running it trios the breaker. I blew out around the heat element and the vents, it finished that load with no problem. I put in another load and it tripped the breaker again. Do you think it is tripping the heat element limit switch. I need to know what could cause it to trip the breaker. Thank you in advance.

    When you say "trips the breaker" is the breaker in the house fuse box or in the dryer.

    Let me know.

It sounds like the current draw is too high This would be due to overload of dryer, motor overheating binding of the drum assy.. First re level the dryer, next disconnect the power and Vacume out the lint inside around moter, try spinning the drum manually to see if it moves freely( some resistance is ok) Another possibility can be lose electrical connections on the breaker or outlet. Disconnect power before testing. Let me know if these tips helped solve issue

Does my LG DLE5001W dryer have a reest button ?


Check your power panel for a tripped circuit breaker. There will be two breakers with their handles joined. Sometimes one will trip but not both. This causes only 120 volts to be applied to the dryer which runs everything but the heating element. Replacing the breaker will solve the problem

there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

you must check if there is power to the element when you have it switch on , , if you have no power to the element , then trace the wiring from the element to a hi limit thermostat , it a small round disc shape item about the size of a 10 cent coin with two connections , remove the wires and check continity accross the two terminals, if it is ok , then check the on and off switch or timer dial , you might see burn marks around the connections , since it trip the circuit breaker

Whirlpool dryer, tripping breaker. Dryer spins but no heat.


If it's tripping your home breaker. You most likely have a bad element. It could also be a loose wire but I would not thing so. You can remove the element and check it. You will most likely find the element is broken and touches the plate when it starts running, shorting the dryer and tripping the breaker. Good luck!

Breaker keeps tripping when I use Amana NED5500TQ electric dryer.


Heating element or motor. Usually heating element. Replace limit switch (inside dryer) during repair. Limit switch should shut off before breaker if working correctly.

After repair clean or replace plug/wire. Inspect or replace receptacle in wall.

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.

Hoover HDV6UK keeps tripping circuit breaker


There are only 2 things that it could be both are heat related:
THe thermostat and thermal limiter OR the heating element. We can not rule out the motor though. Then you can get into the control boards. Maybe it is time.
