Question about Dryers
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:
