Question about Dryers
We had another stacker and we thought it was broken because the washing machine works and the dryer didn't, so we bought a used whirlpool and we are running into the same problem is it our maching or our outlet
The problem is probably with the outlet. The washing machine motor is 120 v and the dryer is 220 v. If one pole of the two pole breaker is bad you could end up with the symptoms you have. I have seen this happen before. go to the circuit breaker and push it all the way to off (it may feel like you are crunching something inside...don't worry) then turn it back on and try the dryer. If this doesn't work, unplug the unit and test the outlet with a voltage tester. you should read 220-240 volts across the two slots and 120 volts from each slot to ground. If not, it is time to call an electrician.
