Dryer was running then stopped


Some driers turn off when overheated. Wait for your drier to cool down and try again. You may need to clear the vent tube which accumulates lint not caught by the drier's lint catch.
An old dryer may be drawing too much power and may have tripped the breaker. Go to your breaker box and look for a switch that is not facing the same way as the others. Push it back in position.
A digitally controlled dryer may freeze like a computer. Try unplugging the machine for 1 minute, plug back in and try again.

Power Failure without tripping breaker


Sounds like an overheat code tripped due to obstruction in the exhaust. There is also a vent tube on the bottom of the dryer that could be loose.

220 dryer CH Breaker only trips partially and dryer does not reach full heat. Is breaker problem or dryer?


I would say that the problem is in the dryer, but only tripping partially is not exactly right either. It is easy and relatiuvely less expensive to replace the breaker . $40 .. if you replace the breaker and still get it tripping after a few minutes of opperating the dryer , then it is time to call a service tech for the dryer.
IF the breaker trips immediately when connecting the dryer, then unplug the dryer and try again, to see if there is a wiring problem in the line before the dryer.

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

My GE dryer DHDSR46EG 1WW less than 2 year-old dryer flips the breaker after about 10 minutes of drying


If the dryer appears to be running OK before the breaker trips, I might consider checking the breaker. Over time they can get weak and not hold the current rating.
If the dryer is smelling "hot" then we can look a little further.
Let me know.

The dryer keep tripping the breaker


It sounds like the current draw is too high This would be due to overload of dryer, motor overheating binding of the drum assy.. First re level the dryer, next disconnect the power and Vacume out the lint inside around moter, try spinning the drum manually to see if it moves freely( some resistance is ok) Another possibility can be lose electrical connections on the breaker or outlet. Disconnect power before testing. Let me know if these tips helped solve issue

Dryer is overheating and tripping the breaker after 40 minutes


Is the dryer tub turning as fast as it should? If not the dryer motor bearings or sleeves may be trying to seize causing the motor to decrease in speed therefore the lack of fan action will cause the dryer to overheat.

My new maytag centennial electric keeps tripping


Hi Matt
I'm not sure that swapping out the breakers to higher rated ones will give you a solution so I'll throw in 2 cents to see if my advice holds true. Let's start by asking this. Is the appliance "rated" at 220 volts at 30 amps per leg. I assume this from your post as to what it has been rated. Next - How long is the "run" of wire from the junction box to the outlet where the appliance plugs in? This usually does not matter in most households but if the run is of significant length it may need a larger gage wire to support the current draw of the appliance. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, are the lugs and wire connectors tight at the outlet, the plug, and the breaker box. A loose connection will ramp up the current fast. This is assuming the first two items were met. Tell me if any of this helps and we'll work it out from there.
Thanks.
Len
