The problem may not be with your dryer but with the circuit breaker...

Locate the circuit breaker for the dryer. Run the dryer for awhile and with the back of your finger pressed against each of the two switches (it will be a double breaker), see if the breaker is getting warm or wait until the dryer quits then check the breaker for any noticeable increase in temperature. With properly rated breakers, they should not get warm. If getting warm, it is a sign the breaker is bad and should be replaced.

My Neptune dryer trips the breaker after 2 to 3 min on lowest heat setting. Used to trip it only at highest heat after 15 min. Got worse over 10 years. Can anyone help? Thanks Dave


If you are tripping the breaker for any reason then you have a short somewhere within your machine and you need to call a tech to isolate the problem.

After starting the dryer it runs for about 10 seconds and then the circuit breaker trips. I am thinking the heating element is bad and is causing the current surge and subsequent trip. How can I verify...


There are several ways. One way is to turn your dryer to air fluff or no heat and see if it trips the breaker. Another way is to physically examine the element. Unplug the dryer before attempting to service. If this does not cure your problem please comment me so I can assist further.

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).

Kenmore elite dryer runs for about 3 min. then trips the breakers


The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.

From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.

I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.

With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.

Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.

The dryer runs fine with no load but as soon as i add clothes aft


Sounds like the motor may be on its way out. a motor, over time can form a short or require more amps to do its job but can cause the breaker to trip. Also over time, dust and lint can build up over time, inside the dryer and cause it to over-heat.

If your circuit breaker(s) are tripping as soon as you turn on the dryer you have a dead short. Try the dryer set on fluff (or no heat). If it runs OK then, short is most likely in the heating element.

Clothes Dryer not working


if it is tripping the breaker right away there is an issue with the drier shorting to ground. unplug and look for a broken wire in the drier. if the drier runs for 10-15 min maybe 30 before it trips the breaker. there is a loose connection in the wiring. either at the junction box in the wall behind the dryer or at the breaker panel. If it is in the electrical I would call an electritian. Good Luck!
