Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit...
OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.
I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.
When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!
So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.
Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.
This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .
Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.
