Question about Dryers

Dryer won't come on. it is plugged in and the outlet and breaker checked out ok.

Our dryer stopped running in the middle of a cycle. It won't restart and the light inside does not come on. I checked the outlet and breaker box and both are ok. I also checked the power cord where it connects to the dryer and all connections were tight and looke ok. The dryer still won't come on.

    I have the same problem. I am getting power to the junction at the dryer, and to the timer controls.

    My dryer is electric and the power is going to the dryer if the cord is good, my son checked it with his meter at the plug in the wall. The dryer was bought new in 2002. I checked the back panel where the cord enters and the three wires from the cord to the dyrer looked good and were all screwed on tight.

Are you getting voltage when you say you checked outlet? is it a gas or electric dryer? should have 220 or so at dryer for electric and 120 for gas. if voltage ok, trace it through to fuse most likely. no light in dryer means no voltage...

I have an admiral electric dryer. It stopped in the middle of a cycle and the light is out and it won't turn on. I checked the fuse box, the plug and the belt is still on, so what do I do now?

Did you test the power outlet with another device...Sometimes a power outlet will fail under the load of a high current appliance like a drier...If the drier runs on 220 volt current...and have circuit breakers instead of fuses...make sure the 220 volt breaker for the dryer is not tripped...If it is tripped...reset it....if not...have a tech to check the outlet. oncee it is established that the drier is getting power and still not may want to get it checked out by service personnel....Hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

Dryer will not get as hot as it used to. it recently went through a move from washington to texas.....and i had to change the plug from a 4 lead to a 3 lead to fit the outlet. I need t to get hot again!!

Make sure you made the right connections and that you put the white wire back on in the middle. If that all ok, then check your breaker box. A dryer will run on 120, but it wont heat without the full 240 volts. If your getting heat then check the exhaust, "the vent going outside". If its clogged that's your problem...good luck.

Dryer was working, quit in middle of cycle. Will

It's rather unusual for any internal failure to cause the dryer to just stop in cycle. Check the circuit breaker that supplies the dryer. It should be a double-pole breaker of at least 30 amps. Turn the breaker off and back on to ensure it is reset. Internal causes could be the motor, door switch, thermal safety switch, timer, or a broken wire.

Check the outside circuit breakers also check the door switch. Check to see if the switch holds with the door closed when you push it in.
