This may sound silly but did you check (or have the means to check) for voltage at the outlet? The absolute bottom line is that if there is no power.......you get the rest.

I have a Maytag dryer model MED5740TQ0 that won't start. Dryer was recently moved to a new location. House was being remodeled so plug and breaker had to be installed. Plug is a 3 prong and dryer had 4...


If you are only getting 120v to the dryer, you still have a breaker tripped. It should be right next to the single pole 30. It takes 2 breakers to get the 240v you need to run the dryer. Try resetting another breaker expecially the ones marked 30amp. You do need to get a double pole breaker installed even for safety reasons.

My dryer runs and drys but after a little while it will trip the breaker in the electrical panel. Anyone have a clue? It's a GE mod.# DLLLR23EG1WW. Thanks in advance for any help. Tom


Hello, W/D here.
When a machine is operating properly, but then trips the breaker, the breaker itself seems to be suspect. Breakers wear over time, and can become "weak". Also, amps on a breaker are time weighted. The more amps that you pull, the less time it takes for the breaker to trip. This is also true with a weak breaker. Check the amps that you should pull with your dryer, and check the breaker. If the breaker is the correct size, try replacing it. You should be on a 30 amp breaker/circuit.
Here are some useful links for your dryer:

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Dryer stops


Unplug your dryer plug. Go to your house electric panel, turn off your 30 amp dryer breaker, and then turn it back on. This resets the breaker. So before opening up the dryer to look for fuses, make sure you have power at the receptacle. Don't plug anything into the receptacle until you have wired it correctly. If you want to run it by me when you're wiring it, that's fine with me. . I hope this helps. Good Luck! Jim

Dryer trips breaker as soon as i try to start it.


Use or borrow a volt ohm meter and check for a grounded hot wire. You may also be exceeding the start up load on the 20 amp breaker. Test this theory (after you make sure that there are no ground faults) by starting the dryer in a "air fluff" mode without heat. If the dryer starts in the "no heat mode", switch the heat on - if you blow the breaker you know that the 20 amp breaker cannot handle it. Before you do any of the above - check your dryer manual for the service requirments. If you don't have the manual go to the mfg. web site and download it.
