If there is no power for either the washer or dryer, is there an internal fuse or reset button


I assume you checked the circuit breaker for this outlet? Both appliances are plugged into the same outlet? I would try unplugging both appliances then attempt to reset the breaker again....throw it completely to the OFF position, wait 10 seconds and throw it to the ON position. At this point we are assuming the breaker is working. It could actually be defective. It could be tested with a meter or test light. If you don't have that try plugging a lamp or another device into the outlet the appliances where plugged into. If it works you know your breaker, wiring, and outlet work. If not you need to troubleshoot that...perhaps a ground fault breaker somewhere in between? If the outlet works with the test lamp, next plug in one appliance at a time to try to determine which pops your breaker.

I have an admiral electric dryer. It stopped in the middle of a cycle and the light is out and it won't turn on. I checked the fuse box, the plug and the belt is still on, so what do I do now?


Did you test the power outlet with another device...Sometimes a power outlet will fail under the load of a high current appliance like a drier...If the drier runs on 220 volt current...and have circuit breakers instead of fuses...make sure the 220 volt breaker for the dryer is not tripped...If it is tripped...reset it....if not...have a tech to check the outlet. oncee it is established that the drier is getting power and still not working...you may want to get it checked out by service personnel....Hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

I have no power to my kenmore elite dryer, model 110.87089601. I had a sudden power outgage and checked the circut brakers. Is there a reset button anywhere?


Unfortunately there is not a reset button or circuit breaker or even a fusible link in that model of dryer.

But before you panic, I would recommend that you trip and reset the dryer circuit breaker (unplug the dryer first) in your house circuit breaker panel to make sure it is really set. Then measure the volatage at the outlet for the dryer with a multimeter (remember it is 220V) to make sure you have both 110V legs at the outlet. If everything is good up to the outlet, you will need to open up your dryer cabinet to find out where you lose the voltage. When you get to a point that you have volatage on one side of a component but not on the other - that part is normally bad.

I plugged a hair dryer in my room then it wouldn't come on in both rooms but all the other rooms outlets work this is the second time this month this problem has occured


Please check the circuit breaker fuses. The one in your bedroom is of lower amps. If it is 5 amps replace it with 15 amps. Also check the connections of the socket. It could be that wires there are not connected with the socket or they are burnt out thus no connection.

Dryer interior light and motor will not turn on


plug something else into the wall outlet to make sure you're getting power there and try changing the bulb.if there is power check the door switch,move the paddle in and out and you should hear a clicking sound,if you don't change out the door switch,also check the back of the dryer at the block where the power cord connects to the dryer and make sure you have power there.also is there a gfi plug anywhere near the dryer that might have to be reset,i've seen this,also i've come across whoever wired the outlet switched the hot wire and the neutral around so when the machine is plugged in the wiring isn't correct

My dryer all of a sudden will not come on. Is there a reset button on these dryers?


Your problem could be a result of several possible issues:

* voltage coming to the dryer (110 V for gas & 220 V for electric); Check circuit breaker, voltage at wall outlet, etc.
* thermal fuse (non-resettable) that has blown and shuts off the dryer typically due to overheating (may be caused by clogged exhaust system)
* timer
* motor
* Start button or door switch

You should contact an appliance service company if you have checked the circuit breaker for proper voltage.

Our Maytag Intellidry PYE4558AYW dryer will not turn on


Check the door interlock switch. If it is defective, the machine will not start. If no help, then there may be trouble in the control panel.

Sounds like you need to replace your electrical breaker in the main control box of the house that feeds the dryer. You should get 120volt on each leg coming into the dryer. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thanks
