Question about Dryers
Check the house electrical panel dryer breakers (pair), push OFF, then ON. If breakers trip again, problem is a short inside the dryer. Pull the power plug from the socket. The top must be opened which allows access to front panel screws from inside. Lift the panel and pull away from cabinet. Disconnect the wiring to door switch and light. Make a diagram of wiring colors and where they went. Uncouple the drive belt from the motor--go through a sub-panel in the back and release a large tension spring from the idler pulley, then remove belt from motor. Remove several screws from inside of drum center, then lift the drum from the case. The heating element(s) are mounted in back of the drum on a supporting wall. Look for any burned areas or wires that touch the surrounding metal. On reassembly, check the condition of the drum belt--any cracks or missing pieces--replace the belt now.
