Question about Dryers
Tripping house electrics when turned on .
Simply there is to much load on the breaker so its tripping to protect your home. I'm not an electrician so I am giving you info based off my experience. Some houses, most I think, have a special plug for the dryer and you can buy a different plug that screws on to the dryer depending on which plug your home has. You may need to upgrade your existing plug in the wall if its an older house. Also, I believe that circuits is on its own breaker separate from the rest so it shouldn't Tripp anything else but the dryer\washer. You can easily fix this yourself if you are confident in dealing with shutting off the electricity and rewiring the outlet or the dryer plus. If not then a electrician can do it easily allbet at a fee. Often times the Home depot or Lowes reps will give you advice but you have to understand its only advice. I would take a picture of the plug and the wall outlet and the breaker. This way you have something to show them at the store when you ask about the plug. One other thing it might be is that the dryer has a bad hearing element or sensor and its drawing to much current causing the trip of the breaker but usually dryers have a $50 fuse on the back that's supposed to blow out first.
