Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
Dryer won't work. Hot water heater on opposite side of wall keeps having to be reset.
It sounds like you have a short in the wiring, element, or motor of the drier.
Unplug and do not plug in until repaired. Most driers can be opened for inspection by lifting the lid. You would do this through the front door area, looking up you should see several screws which need to be removed from the underside of the lid. Once removed a putty knife needs to be slid in the sides or from corners to release a spring clip allow the lid to swing up and back. Be careful not to twist the knife as you can crack the enamel finish on the drier.
As dryers age, humidity and vibration sometimes cause shorting in the wire harness connections, or the element breaks from expansion and contraction. You are dealing with 220 volts here so unless you know what you are doing, do not attempt the repairs yourself. Look for any evidence of burned connections. if none are visible you likely have an internal short circuit, where electricity is hitting the metal of the drier which could give you a big jolt if you flip that breaker again. Call a recommended repair tech if this one is above your experience. BE SAFE
