First, see if you get the same result when you run the machine on "Air-Fluff." If you don't pop the breaker on Air -Fluff you know the problem is originating in the heat circuit, get inside the machine and inspect the wiring for crispy/burned terminals and the heat element for damage or contact with the housing... If it does pop the breaker on Air-Fluff: Inspect the terminal block on the back of the unit where the power cord is bolted on (with the unit unplugged), look for any scorched spots- if that is clear, remove the outlet cover and inspect the wire connections on it for scorching (with the circuit break off).

Check the cycle selector control to make sure a heating
cycle has been selected. The selector should be in an "Off" position
when not in use, but it should be turned to a drying cycle when in use.
On some models, make sure you are not accidentally running the dryer on
the "Air" cycle, which does not use heat.
Check the gas supply valve to make sure it is open if your dryer is a gas dryer. If it is not open, just lift the valve open.
Look at your house's main breaker box to determine whether a
circuit breaker is tripped. The electric dryer runs on 220-240 volts
and has a double breaker. If the breaker for the heating element is
tripped, the drum may tumble the clothes without heat. Turn the dryer's
breakers to off, then back on; test whether the dryer will produce heat.
Consult a technician if troubleshooting does not resolve the problem.
There are several ways. One way is to turn your dryer to air fluff or no heat and see if it trips the breaker. Another way is to physically examine the element. Unplug the dryer before attempting to service. If this does not cure your problem please comment me so I can assist further.
The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.
From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.
I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.
With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.
Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.
Select the heat setting other than Air Fluff.
Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
HELLO THERE Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating
elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a
short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to
protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires.
Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer,
motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because
there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine,
another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may
be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to
the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If
they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is
unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse
box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.
OK I hope this is very helpful for you Best regards Michael
First clean the vent in the machine and the wall. Try the machine one time not connected to the wall, see if it works better. Carefully tighten the wire connections at the breaker, including the white. It is possible for a breaker to get weak. Your motor may be wearing out.
the valve body is the problem there is a one way valve inside it if thois fails the gas will not flow to your burner. this is a prevention feature it's design is to keep back pressure to insure a flame doesn't travel back through to the source and cause an explosion.the valve body will have an intergrated regulater so replace the whole valve assembly and it should take care of the problem
If your circuit breaker(s) are tripping as soon as you turn on the dryer you have a dead short. Try the dryer set on fluff (or no heat). If it runs OK then, short is most likely in the heating element.
The problem may not be with your dryer but with the circuit breaker...
Locate the circuit breaker for the dryer. Run the dryer for awhile and with the back of your finger pressed against each of the two switches (it will be a double breaker), see if the breaker is getting warm or wait until the dryer quits then check the breaker for any noticeable increase in temperature. With properly rated breakers, they should not get warm. If getting warm, it is a sign the breaker is bad and should be replaced.
