Question about Amana NED5500TQ Electric Dryer
I have an Amana NED5500TQ electric dryer that is about 1-1/2 years old. Recently, when I try to use the dryer the breaker trips. At first it was during the second consecutive load, now it is within a couple of minutes of starting the first load. Between breaker trips, the dryer does appear to be drying normal. I notice no unusual noises. When I unplugged the dryer, I noticed that one of the prongs is showing some signs of charring and melting. I have a 30A breaker, #10 wire, 30A recep. and the whip is rated for 30A. I'm guessing there is an issue with the heating element which is why I say the charring on the plug. Am i on the right track or should I be looking to replace the breaker or recep.?
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.
