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.

You should hear a click just before the lid closes and a click just after it opens. If no click, check lid switch and it's actuator.

Loud pop while fixing a light and now the light wont go back on


More than likely tripped the circuit breaker for that circuit in the main breaker panel. I would check they should be labled for which one controls the lights for that room. Just turn it off and back on to reset the breaker switch.

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.

My bravo steam dryer is showing an F1 code, and I can't get it to start


this is a control board issue, you may be able to clear the fault using these steps:

1) Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

2) Plug the dryer back in or turn the breaker back on.

3) Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.

4) Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.


If it will not clear then you will need to replace the control board, Good Luck Tim

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.

No electrical power


You must find the reason the main breaker is popping ...

I'd start by unplugging everything and remove all breakers. Turn the main on ... does it pop? If it pops here look between the breaker panel and the end of your cord. Turn the power off - reinstall the first breaker - turn power back on. What happens ... keep doing this until the main or individual breaker pops - investigate that circuit to find your short.

If you get all breakers back in with out popping anything ... start plugging stuff back in. Something is shorting somewhere.

Let me know what you find please.

thanks
