Whoa whoa whoa... stop.

when a dryer turns off your house breakers it usually means there is something wrong in the curcuitry. Have a electrician come to check your house breakers.

Make sure your dryer is rated for your power supply 120, or 240 volts. Is the amperage correct?

I have seen some guys wire thier own 240, and sometimes the wires are backwards on there or they cut out the ground wires. A licensed electrian should come to check this out.

please make sure a licensed electrician comes to your house quickly and check things out. Then go from there.

Kenmore elite he4 moder 110 won't heat


In terms of likelihood, here is what's wrong:
1) The heating element has failed.
2) One of the several "overheat thermostats" has overheated and failed.
These are found in the back or the bottom of the dryer in the rear.
3) One of the wires to something, like the heating element, has burned in two.
4) The panel where the electric cord attached to the back of the dryer has failed. This will be inside the back of the dryer, usually behind a small plate.
5) The circuit breaker for the "heating" circuit wire of your dryer is popped and needs to be reset. (That is the circuit breaker found in your hall, or basement, or garage, or wherever.)
If you decide to fix it yourself, a question to "fixya" might get you step-by-step instructions.
Be blessed

Doesnt dry clothes, every opening i have unclogged,even outside vent is clear.basket rolls but heat is room temp. no matter what setting.


Hi, I experienced the same problem with my Maytag electric dryer. I finally fixed the problem after I checked the actual vent pipe (which allows air to discharge to the outside of your home). What I found was quite surprising. I found was a mouse nesyt in this pipe. Once I removed the mouse next,m my electric dryer worked fine. Just a thought. Good Luck!

By mistake i hit the circut breaker and since i put back, the dryer does not heat up. only cold


Hi, Sometimes the circuit breaker will not reset properly turn it off again and reset it hard.... If you have a gas dryer2_bing.gif.
The most common problem with a gas and no heat is the ignitor going bad...

Here is a tip that I wrote about that problem...

Magic Chef electric Dryer won't start


Do you have power going to the receptacle. You can first go to your house panel and look for the circuit breaker for the dryer (usually a 30 amp 2-pole brkr.). It could be tripped. So first, put your dryer in the off position. Next, go back to your circuit breaker in your house panel. Turn off the breaker, and then turn it back on. This should reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Then go back and try turning on your dryer. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me again. However, this would seem to be it. Good Luck to you!

HE4 Kenmore Dryer tripping Circuit Breaker


If you put a light load in the dryer will not trip the circuit at all. That means heavy load made the motor work harder and over heat, it going to trip the circuit , pretty soon, the motor will be warn out.
