How do you know what's wrong with the dryer? See my notes below.


First of all, replacing a breaker with a higher amp one does not solve the problem. It only creates a potential fire hazard. That is why certain amperage breakers are in place. It trips when the load is too much which keeps the machine from burning up. Put back the original breaker or one with the same rating. Now, let's start with the real problem. If you have done all the above correctly, then the next place would be the heating element. You will need to take top off to see he element. Chances are it is burned in two. Replace it. They are not that expensive. You do have a relay which is in the shape of 5-6 stacked quarters. You may want to start there first. It is only about 10-15 dollars. It is in line with the heating element. It may have blown when you wiggled the wire and the breaker tripped. Let me know how this work out. Be safe.

Clothes not dry when dryer shuts off


First turn off your breakers, then back on. Next check the wiring at the back of the dryer. You could have wires burned in two. You may next have an element that is burned out. Your relay switch underneath the top could be bad. To check it , bypass it by taping the two wires coming off it together. If it works, then you will know it is the relay .

SHORTED THE DRYER BY TOUCHING WIRE TO BODY, THERES POWER INSIDE THE DRYER(LIGHT ON), BUT NOTHING HAPPENS WHEN SWITCH IS ON, CONTINUITYIS GOOD ON START SWITCH, WHERE DO I GO NOW


Power to the dryer is 220 volts, with half of the total voltage supplied by each of two breakers. The breakers are combined into one larger breaker, but each side of the breaker connects to a different buss bar in the breaker box. What it sounds like is that one half of your breaker is tripped, and the remedy is to trip the double breaker in order to reset the half that is tripped. If tripping the breaker off and back on does not restore the operation of the dryer, trip the breaker back off, unplug the dryer, and check for any burned wires at the terminal strip where the cord connects to the dryer. Replace any defective or burned parts.

Hello all I have a GE DCLR333ETOWW Electric dryer. When we got it the start button was missing so I had the Blue and Brown Wires sticking out and we would just touch them together for a second and the...


first things first. Electric dryers are 220v on a double breaker in your breaker box. (120v for the motor,120v for the heater element). When your dryer sparked, it probably tripped the breaker. Note: you REALLY need to buy a switch an get those exposed wires back inside of the dryer where they belong...just sayin'

The dryer light comes on, so we feel it's getting power. But, when I push the start button nothing happens............


The first thing that you want to check is if you have full power coming into the machine. Just because the light is on doesn't mean that one side of the breaker is not tripped. Once thats done the next step is to check the motor control fuse. You will need to remove the back of the machine to access this part. Once the back is off, the fuse will be a thin, white plastic fuse with two wires going to it located on the lower left side if your standing behind the dryer. With the machine unpluged, disconnect the wires, take a ohm meter and check for continuity on the fuse, if you have none the fuse is bad. In cases where you don't have a meter, you can take the two wires off, connect them together with electrical tape, then plug the machine in and press the start button to see if it comes on. If it does the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced. Remember though, before you do any of this, check the breaker, and also makes sure the door switch is working properly, you can check that by pressing it in and seeing if the light in the dryer turns off. Hope this helps and good luck

My dryer is sparking, Help! There is a black burn mark on the dryer right under the knobs, and when I went to turn the knob today, the dryer sparked. It then sparked again a few minutes later.


Yes sparking is bad! I would recommend having someone come out if your not comfortable working with electricity. The reason it's sparking is a bad connection. This could be a broken, loose or corroded wire, or bad contacts inside a switch. This could cause a fire and I would not recommend trying to run it like this. If your gunna tackle this yourself, first unplug, and/or turn of breaker. make sure there is no power to the unit before going any further. You'll need to remove several screws and get into the control area where all the switches and wiring are. It sounds like something is definitely burnt so it should be easy to find. If it's a lose wire you may be able to clean it and reconnect it. If it's a bad component, you can remove it, and go to the nearest appliance parts house and get a replacement. Again if your not comfortable with this, call an appliance repair tech to come check it out.

Dryer tubles does everything like its supposed to but does not heat up?


Hello there
Here is some things that could make the dryer not work properly meaning heat wise please click on the items listed in blue and go thru each of them this will help you troubleshoot this
There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
