Trips circuit breaker.


Depends on whether electric or gas dryer. Electric dryer is a fault in the dryer or serious electrical issue on the circuit. Gas dryer means too much overall load on the circuit from all items on it or high demand when the dryer drum motor first starts. If the latter and IF the wire gauge supports it, a simple upgrade to a higher amperage breaker may fix the problem. 20 amp breakers require a minimum 12 gauge wire on all parts of the circuit to which the breaker is connected. 12 gauge wire is about 2 mm or 13/16 inch in diameter.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

I am trying to hook up this dryer that did not come with instuctions


Hi erika9897...
You did not say if your dryer was electric or gas...
I would say let an expert install your dryer if it is gas.
If it is electric then all you will need to do is wire the cord to the back of the dryer at the electrical connections.
If that is what you need then here is a webpage to go to...it will have a picture of how to wire up your dryer if its a three wire or 4 wire connection...
Please take time to rate me

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago


Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

GE Dryer Model #DWSR483EB2WW Dryer tumbles,


Does it get hot when you start the dryer, and never gets hot again when its running? The solenoid wire might be opening due to heat, the solenoid is responsible for opening the gas valve, and booster valve. The wire is located in a round plastic sleeve with two electrical contacts sticking out.

Dryer will not get hot


Gas or electric.

If gas... no suggestions. You don't have a flame.
If electric... heating coil. On back of dryer is a small panel (one or two screws remove it). Inside is a coil with a pair of wires connected at the base of it. remove the wires, remove the coil. Install a new coil and connect the wires.

Replace the cover and start the dryer...

Push start button on dryer. No response. I can hear the timer start (so it must be getting juice) but the dryer does not start. Your thoughts. What are the likely suspects for part replacement. ...


Unplug Electric or turn off gas before testing. Check to see if wall outlet has 240 Volts if electric. If not, that may be your problem

Heater is on right inside can, safety thermostat on lower left of can, High limit thermostat (non-resettable) higher left of can. On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open. Replace the part that fails to test properly for continuity.

Good Luck
