Re: All the LED ligths ON

In the back of the display panel. remove the metal cover with the dryer UNPLUGGED.There is a booklet that tells you how to access the service mode by pressing 2 certain buttons at a time certain dryer functions can be accessed. One of the tests were to check the led lights on your control panel, when you run the test all the lights would light up. it's a possibility if you acess the service mode and run the led light check it could possibly reset it and solve your problem. It's a shot but it can't hurt. Getting into the service mode to test certain modes on your dryer is easy enough.Just read the instructions. Good luck.

Kenmore Series 80 Dryer won't start after Circuit breaker was tripped

A breaker thrown that many times indicates a serious electrical problem. You need to have the problem taken care of by an electrician. You should be worried about the safety of yourself and your family.
That being said, I would guess that breaker has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

When I press the power on the on ligth does not come on,and the dryer does not come on,befor when i press the power on the ligth blink for a secon and go out, and now when i press the power on nothing

The first think you need to do is check the circuit breaker. If the breaker is off, turn it all the way off and then to the on position. If it trips off again, you have a short in the wire. DO NOT plug anything into the outlet. It is a 220 line and you can be seriously injured.
Another issue could be the circuit board is faulty and the machine will prevent itself from turning on. If the breaker is good and the machine still does not remain on, you will need to call a service technician for the dryer. Good Luck!!

Neptune dryer has power but will not spin.I hear a faint click comming from the left side. model#MDE9700AYM

An electric Neptune clothes dryer, like most electric clothes dryers, has two circuit breakers: one for the drum and another for the heating element. Both breakers need to be in the "on" position for it to run properly. Go to your main circuit box. Reset both of the dryer's circuit breakers to the "on" position. If one of the breakers trips again, there's a problem with the dryer component that it operates. Contact a dryer repair technician to evaluate the machine's condition.
The lid switch is a small latch located on the interior of the door frame on your Neptune clothes dryer. It keeps the door securely shut when the dryer's on to prevent injury should you open the door and reach inside while it's turning. If the lid switch becomes damaged, the dryer won't turn on even though its lights might work. Run your finger over the lid switch and listen for a clicking sound. If you don't hear a sound when the latch is compressed, it's faulty and needs to be swapped out.

The thermal cut-off is a heat-sensitive safety feature on a Neptune clothes dryer that shuts off the heating element if the dryer overheats. After it activates, it can't be reset; you must replace it. Until it's replaced, your dryer might only partially function, so while its lights might turn on, the dryer might not spin or heat. Don't exchange an old thermal cut-off for a new one until you first determine what promoted it to trip, otherwise your dryer likely will overheat again.

Clothes still damp after 2 cycles

Many times one pole of a double pole breaker may trip allowing the dryer to operate but with no heat. Go to the electric panel and reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Also check to insure there is air flow at the vent a clogged vent willl prevent clothes from drying

Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes

could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

The dryer will not turn on. I know I have power because the light is on. But nothing happens when I hit start

Check for a tripped circuit breaker (a ganged double breaker), sometimes only one breaker trips without tripping the other. Switch breakers off and then back on. If you have access to a voltmeter, check for 220 volts AC at the the two slanted slots in the dryer socket. Occasionally, one breaker of the pair will fail internally--replace the pair. If 220 volts is present, then problem is internal to the dryer. Usually, it is a short circuit in the heating element which causes the circuit breaker trip.

pf = power failure
do= door open

the dryer is tripping the breaker because your house wiring is probly not up to snuff, or you have a bad breaker. nothing you are saying sounds like a dryer problem, but could be a big issue with house (could be very bad, could cause fire)

Check your circuit breaker. Even if it doesn't look tripped reset it anyhow. Try that first.

Did the Dryer work before? What led to this problem? Most Electric dryers work on 240 Volts. And have their own seperate circuit breaker, usually marked as "Dryer." So resetting just the main cuircuit breaker might not be enough. Did you reset the Dryer C. breaker?

No pwer in Control panel but light is on the the dryer

You may have blown one of the two circuit breakers at the building fuse box. Sometimes they are physically linked together so that both trip at the same time. This is how it's suppose to work but sometimes one will trip leaving you with half power but enough to work the minor circuits. Resetting the circuit breaker is an easy fix. If this doesn't work ohm out the thermal fuses. They are ususally accessable by lifting the top. With it open check that all connector are connected.
