Dryer wont turn on

Start with all the simple stuff, it may sound repetitive and I'm sure you have already done the first things I'll mention, but bear with me, its always easiest to start simple and work your way up to calling a technician.

First make sure its fully connected to the outlet. The plugs can wiggle themselves lose over time. Also, make sure that the chord for the dryer is properly connected.

Next, check the breaker panel and make sure the switch didn't trip.

If those don't help, while your in your breaker box take notice to how many amps the breaker is that the dryer is connected to, if this was a dryer you just had installed, and it worked fine before the delivery guys left, check to see what the required voltage and amperage is for your dryer, use a multimeter to check how many volts are coming out of the outlet. A decent multimeter can be purchased at a local hardware store, auto parts store, or WalMart for 20 dollars or less. If the reading is between 110 - 125 volts that is a standard reading for a residential outlet, if you have a commercial connection there reading should fall between 205 - 240, if your getting the standard reading from the outlet, it's probably something in your dryer call a service technician for further diagnosis. If the reading is around 90v (residential) or 125-140 (commercial) your problem lies between your circuit break and outlet.

Unless your very handy call an electrician to find the short in the line.

Miele t1565c dryer has no power. It was working fine until my son ran his welder off the same circut as the dryer now it wont work

Have an electrician check all the connections, the load from the welder probably overloaded a connection.

Frigidaire electric dryer model gleq2152es1 lights wont turn on and wont do anything

Hi ana piedranayari05, this is AP! Thank you for your post

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire electric dryer not turning on. Make sure the dryer is still plugged into the outlet, and plugged in correctly. Also check to see if the house fuse is blown or circuit breaker tripped? If so, Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker. Check to make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. Have a licensed electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself. Additionally, the thermal limiter could have tripped or possibly an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation. A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault. If you have check the plug, fuses, and circuit breaker and still no power I would recommend contacting a local technician to diagnose and service your electric dryer.

Our dryer wont start and the outlet doesnt give us power. The circuit breaker works until we plug the dryer in. Please help

most likely the heating element is shorting out or a wire is touching metal in the dryer or you have a problem with the house electrical,unplug it,pull it out and remove the vent line and the back panel,first check the connections where the cord connects to the dryer and make sure that's ok.if that looks fine go to the heating element connections down on the bottom right hand side,pull off the wires going to the element,check the element with a meter or make sure the wires aren't touching anything and plug it back in,if the fuse doesn't pop change out the heater,if it does pop again call an electrician to check the house circuit or and go through the dryer to see if any of the wires are shorting out,

Dryer was working fine until I turned off the breaker to work on an electrical outlet on the same circuit. When I was done I turned on the breaker all other outlets worked, I went to use the dryer and...

Hello Steve,

I am a bit confused because the model you selected is for a electric dryer which should have a dedicated outlet/breaker only for the dryer
I am going to assume it's a gas dryer and the trouble is with the outlet,to verify this plug a know working object into the outlet and see if it works
Even if the part in the dryer part that cuts the circuit to the motor if it's bad(thermal fuse) has no bearing on the drum light and that should work if power to dryer

I bought this dryer and we need to switch out the plug becuase it doesnt fit the outlet can we do this?

If this is a US dryer, the device requires 240 volts and two phase to work, switching the plug to 120V single phase the dryer won't work. If you don't have the outlet you need an electrician to fit a suitable outlet.

Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer- can I change the plug from the present 4 pronged utility plug to a standard 3 prong plug and still work safely?

NO, You will need to get an electrician to install a NEMA 14-30R outlet for your dryer, the electrician will know what you need, in anycase a 240V 30amp outlet is needed if you dont already have one. DONT replace the plug.

No power to dryer

Does your Husband have a meter to check voltage? if not any good hardware store, Sears or Radioshack will sell you a meter for checking voltage at the outlet. I cant give him a lesson on electricity he has to feel comfortable with that.

I have witnessed many dryer installations where they blame the dryer and come to find out its the house wiring, oh bye the way here is my bill and you need to call an Electrician to replace this and he will bill you also. My service stops at the power cord! Make sure when your husband checks for loose wires he has the power off, if you are not sure of the correct breaker turn the main off. then he can check for all the loose wires and he wont fry himself.

I would also ask that you turn the breaker off and on several times to reset it, the dryer could still run but not heat if one side doesnt work.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
