I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

I have no pwer on my electric range it is a kenmore


Make sure there's power reaching to your range, oven or cook-top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. I would also advise to inspect the junction point on the backside of the unit for a possible separation of the power cord as well. If all checks out ok, then your control board will be the culprit. It will need ot be replaced in this case, due to possible circuit breakdown or power relay issues.

My kenmore Elite stopped working after my daughter open the door during a cycle. There seems to be no power. Circuit breaker is fine. Any thoughts? Thanks


Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

My dishwasher seems to not be getting any power and no lights are lighting up. It is still plugged in and I already tried resetting breaker. Any suggestions?


HI. Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.


If everything checks out ok with the above suggestion, the main control sector(timer or control board), will be the culprit.

The control sector must be replaced, in this case.

No power on kenmore range


Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

If everything above is ok, move on to the power cord junction point. make sure the power cord has not separated from the junction point on the backside of the unit.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer PF on control panel,


HI, there may have been a slight power failure within the home breaker unit or the dryer may have lost power to the control for some sort of reason.

I recommend a thorough inspection of the terminal block on the back side of this unit. make sure the power cord is attached tightly and the wall outlet is secure and holding the power cord correctly. if everything looks great with the terminal block and the power cord is plugged in the outlet correctly, simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. after the 5 minutes are up, plug the unit in once more and the PF alert should reset.

Make sure the breaker box in your home is working properly. (the actual breaker switch for the dryer must be in the on position)

Hoover HDC7FM condensor dryer starts then cuts out


Open the dryer door (right after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.
