SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: HE4 Kenmore Dryer tripping Circuit Breaker

If you put a light load in the dryer will not trip the circuit at all. That means heavy load made the motor work harder and over heat, it going to trip the circuit , pretty soon, the motor will be warn out.

SOURCE: My new maytag centennial electric keeps tripping

Hi Matt
I'm not sure that swapping out the breakers to higher rated ones will give you a solution so I'll throw in 2 cents to see if my advice holds true. Let's start by asking this. Is the appliance "rated" at 220 volts at 30 amps per leg. I assume this from your post as to what it has been rated. Next - How long is the "run" of wire from the junction box to the outlet where the appliance plugs in? This usually does not matter in most households but if the run is of significant length it may need a larger gage wire to support the current draw of the appliance. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, are the lugs and wire connectors tight at the outlet, the plug, and the breaker box. A loose connection will ramp up the current fast. This is assuming the first two items were met. Tell me if any of this helps and we'll work it out from there.
Thanks.
Len

SOURCE: Clothes Dryer tripping house circuit breaker

If it is breaking the main circuit of the house there is something wrong. It should throw the breaker to the dryer only. It sounds like you are having a problem with a short between the main breaker and sub panel in the house. Is there any way you can move the breaker in the panel to a different place on the same panel to see if it is that circuit only. If not check the outlet and the plug on the dryer and make sure the wiring is connected correctly.

Maytag Bravos MVWB300WQ1. While sitting idle I heard a click and now the machine will not turn on plus it popped the circuit main circuit breaker.


The clicking sound may have been insulation / plastic in one of the electrical components cooling down after failure. The problem is more than likely the motor or lid switch. If you are capable, remove motor wires / plug, insulated same, plug into the power, turn on & see if it trips the circuit breaker. if it does not it is the motor, if it still trips check other electrical components.

Does this Maytag Bravos electric dryer require more power? I.e., new dryer blows circuit breaker multiple times during a load. Have used electric dryers on this circuit for many years and have not had this...


Assuming that your house is wired correctly, if the plug will physically fit into the outlet, then the outlet is capable of driving the appliance properly. A breaker for a dryer should be rated at 30 amperes. The breaker itself could be going bad (they tend to fail to the off position).
Your best bet is to actually use an amp meter to measure the current it draws.
If you discover that someone wired your dryer with a 2 pole 20 amp breaker, then make sure the wire itself is 10 AWG before replacing it with a 2 pole 30.

Power Failure without tripping breaker


Sounds like an overheat code tripped due to obstruction in the exhaust. There is also a vent tube on the bottom of the dryer that could be loose.

My Maytag Bravo Steam Dryer runs for about 5 minutes and gets hot and then kicks the breaker in the breaker box. HELP!!


Hello there:
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:It could be also wired backwardes so make sure to have this checked'

If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician. If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box.

Maytag stove mer6769baq trips the breaker whenever plugged in


It sounds to me like there is a short circuit either in the plug or the connections at the stove. It could also be within the stove although that seems very unlikely. If this happens when your using the stove, the breaker and circuit could be undersized (required breaker size-50AMPS) Check all wires and the breaker.
