Dryer got hot and shut down. Cleaned out the vent and now it won't do anything. I check the power and breakers and all it good there. Is there a reset on located inside the dryer somewhere?

My beko dryer keeps tripping my electric box


We had similar problem with a different type dryer. Turned out to be a weak / older / bad breaker in the electrical panel. Every so often it would just trip the breaker for no reason.
The owner thought it was the dryer itself - and bought a new one - but problem remained.
In our case - solved by electrician putting in a new breaker in the panel for the dryer.
Could still be your dryer though, in your case.
Suggest:
- make sure dryer vent is not plugged by lint or other stuff.
[ When running, check that you've got good flow of hot air coming out the outside vent. If NO, could be a plugged up vent. We've had that too before. Disassemble, clear out vent tubes, check for plugged up screens, on the outside too, there is sometimes a screen in the outlet - it could get plugged. The screen is important - to keep out leaves & animals & stuff - but typically gets plugged up. Then dryer overheats and shuts itself off or trips the breaker. Also - you'll find that it takes longer to dry anything if the flow of air going out is restricted.]

Dryer won't continue to heat and doesn't shut off.


The coils on the gas assembly get IFFY with age. They work a little then get hot and quit. My Video

Replaced timer on dryer because would not shut off sometimes. dryer was working while I had it open I was vacuuming out lint around drum and switches. had door open and light was on suddenly light went out...


if its on a circuit breaker,just switch the breaker off,then back on,they can drop out ,but still show good
if this is not the case,check the incoming power block inside the dryer as a burned off neutral conductor can result in the same condition

My Amana NED7200TW dryer still shuts down with no power and after a couple minutes it will power up again. I checked the circuit breaker but the breakers were not tripped. Help!


Sounds like an internal over-temp thermostat is tripping. Usually, this is caused by near-zero air flow through the machine. Vacuum out the exhaust hose, the exit fitting from the house, and all of the dryer's interior air path that you can reach. Wash out the lint filter with detergent and HOT water as fabric softener deposits will plug the screen. Check the exterior vent for air flow while it's running--it should be fairly forceful (and hot!). Hope this helps!

We just finished a load in the dryer and it worked fine. When we went to start another load it wouldn't start. The circuit works, it is plugged in, and the door is shut


Are your lint traps clean? Also, your vent hose going out the back of the dryer sometimes gets clogged up, and this will shut down your dryer until it is cleaned out. Try this, and if it still doesn't work - try shutting the dryer's circuit breaker off (or if its easier to unplug the dryer), and then back on again. This will reset the breaker, and then you can try running your dryer again. In fact, you can do the circuit breaker step first. If this doesn't work, then clean the lint trap, vent, etc. - and then return to the circuit breaker step. I hope this works for you. If not, let me know. I'll check back with you in a little bit. Good Luck!  Jim

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Dryer runs hot and will not shut down automatically


there is a thermostat or what we would say a high temp switch near the heating element to keep it from getting to hot , the internal parts of the vent must be cleaned as well, cleaning the vent and the screen is not always good enough. Ive had to completely take the dryer apart and pull all pipes apart all the way to the lint screen to fix this problem.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

Dryer won,t get hot


It's not a circuit breaker your chasing. Check your vent to see if it's clean. You could have a bad element.
