-Try difference outlet. If it works then the first outlet you plug in has no power.
-You said you already check the breaker. it looks fine.
-Did you do any thing to the breaker or just look...?
-If the outlet that you want to use still has no power then how about try this:
-Open the breaker panel. Flip all breaker off, then flip all on one by one and check again. If you have power now then good. But still have no power then most likely the previous owner or renter disconnect the wires to that outlet from its connector. At the junction box or may be at the breaker.
if the unit was working fine before you flipped the breaker off then i would say you have a bad breaker... it is possible for only half the breaker to fail and you would still have a light and possible even tumble on dryer but no heat.... turn breaker off again and snap back on may require a few trys and it may require replacement of breaker...obviously the correct way to test would be with a volt meter (ac current) and test at your dryer where it connects are you getting 220- 247 volts on the 2 outside terminal connections... if not your breaker or plug has failed.... good luck to you
Your dryer is a 220 appliance and should be on a circuit all by itself. Are the items in your circuit box labeled (Lights? kitchen, etc.) One should be labeled "dryer". If you cannot locate one that is labeled for your dryer, Check out the position of the circuit breakers. If the dryer breaker is turned off it will be in the oppoite postion of the others.Caution: DO NOT do what he did and begin flipping breakers! If your dryer breaker is in the off position,is you should be able to flip it back on. Before you do this, have the dryer turned off.
If this does not work, unplug your dryer and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes or so, so that the dryers' operating system can reset itself. Then try turning it back on.
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.
Most likely where any wires go through the cabinet into the door or inside the door where a hinge or other moving part ir rubbing it.
Disconect power (unplug it) and inspect all wiring close to those areas for worn spots. If you have an OHM meter, you can ohm each wire to ground and see which one is shorted, then trace it back to the problem area.
Hello mdonettaYou said, Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer
acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start
button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked
okay. Any ideas.
yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset! If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!
tinaheinleHello Welcome to fixya. I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, ..well this is a solution..... my roommate unplugged the machine while
it was drying. the start and spin lights were both flashing. I called
the company and they told me to reset it, but the weren't sure how, lol. I
unplugged it and waiting, nothing. I flipped the breaker, nothing. I
finally turned it to a setting, and turned on nob on the dry, and it
started clicking. I turned off the dry, and hit the start button, and it started right up...
If the next time you use it and it's fine then you did succeed in resetting the system and will be alright! Let me know that we were successful!
