Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I moved my dryer as well, but it has run for 2 months without any problems. Breaker...very loud pop,...dryer stops. As soon as I reset the breaker....a small amount of electricity is discharged from the breaker...along with a loud pop...I reset the breaker again, same result.
The dryer has power going to it, and when I reset the timer control on the dryer, I hear it running, but the dryer just sits there. I have noticed that the on switch that starts the dryer is still in the engaged position.
I have called a repair person to check out the dryer, and will post "what is wrong" unless somebody gives me another clue.
The breaker resets and applies power to the dryer?
Where is the "discharge" coming from? Below the breaker, as in directly behind it? This sounds like a bad buss bar in the breaker box or bad contacts on the breaker itself. Unless you are competent around electricity and circuit breaker panels, call some one who is!!!
When you say the dryer just sits there, do you mean that the timer comes on but the dryer motor does not turn and the heat does not come on? If so, you probably need to inspect the breaker and breaker box as I said above. Only one side of the 220 is getting to your dryer.

You have a short circuit in the dryer. Check the incoming wires at the cord terminal on the rear of the dryer. If these wires are OK it could be a shorted heating element.
