It sounds like your dryer is not starting and this is a symptom of a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. This non-resettable fuse is wired in series with the motor and power to the motor is terminated once it blows. Replacing the fuse is the only viable solution if that is the case.

Why does it pop the reset button?


The button is a current overload protection for the motor. There is a variety of causes. Defective motor windings, carbonized burnt pressure switch contacts, loose connection (e.g. cord to plug, switch terminals, motor terminals), wrong voltage supply to the motor, worn motor bearings, drive belt too tight, or defective driven machine.
I would run the motor with no load, remove the belt or coupling to the compressor pump, and read the amperes and compare to the motor nameplate rating, let it idle a few minutes and listen for bearing noise. By reading motor amperes or current while the compressor is still connected to the motor, it can be determined if the reset button/overload protector is weak. Check every electrical connection for discoloration or overheating and repair if any are found. Check the contacts of the pressure switch. If nothing wrong is found and the motor is just overdrawing current or amperes, then it is time to replace the motor, probably due to a weak or defective motor internal winding.

Reset thermal


I think the question is thermal overload on a three phase motor. If a motor has a thermal overload that must be manually reset then there should be a button on the motor, often red. While the motor is de-energized (power plug removed) , push the reset button by hand.

Where is the reset button on the motor?


There are no reset buttons on Bath Pumps. They do have a thermal overload switch in the motor so it will shut off before it burns up.
that is thermal so when it cools down it will let the motor come on again but there is no reset switch on any motor.

usualy reserable termic fuses are attached to body of motor, or inside the winding wires of motor.
  1. if it is attached to motor body than you should reset yourself, usualy they are black, round colour with red reset button on center. it is enough to push that red button and you reset it.
  2. if it is in winding wires it should reset when motor temperature drops, if that is not the case than you should consult winding expert for that, in your region.

Dishwasher fills with water... wont wash


usually if the motor is not kicking in then it is a blocked/seized wash motor or a broken wire somewhere from the timer to the motor. either will mean a stripdown. try checking out the motor first.
