Question about Amana NED5500TQ Electric Dryer
I have a Amana Electric Dryer NED5500TQ. When I got it, the Auto Dry System did not work...The Dryer would not shut off until I shut it off. Now, when I run the dryer it kicks off my Main Breaker on the incoming electric pole. What could be causing this?
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.
