It is possible that you could have a bad breaker in the panel. They will start to trip randomly when they are going bad. If not the dryer is drawing too many amps and the breaker is doing it's job. If the heating element is defective and drawing extra juice that could trip the breaker. Usually replacement breakers are not too expensive if you electrical panel is less then 20 years old and can be purchased at most home improvement stores. I would try replacing the breaker before you try repairing the dryer. If you install a new breaker and the problem continues to happen then you should check the dryer heating element. That component is what draws the most amps and would be the most common one for tripping the breaker.

The electrical outlet does not match with my dryer cable, so I get a new set of wire from home depot to match the wall outlet. how do I hook it up?


Hello, welcome to Fixya,

If you'll notice the new cord has 2 hot (red & black) a neutral (white) and ground/earth (green) wires. In case you are not sure how to connect I've attached a photo which shows the correct way.

Breaker keeps tripping when I use Amana NED5500TQ electric dryer.


Heating element or motor. Usually heating element. Replace limit switch (inside dryer) during repair. Limit switch should shut off before breaker if working correctly.

After repair clean or replace plug/wire. Inspect or replace receptacle in wall.
