If, after a cool-down period, it can be re-started with same problem as stated, then the heating coil is in error. remove back panel and locate the heating element. Look for all electrical insulators to be not cracked and look for heating coil to be not stretched out or bulging and close to any other metal object. The coil can be fixed by pulling taut where it bulges and re-connecting it to itself so as to form a shorter length of coil. If insulators cracked, they must be replaced.

I have a double breaker switch for my dryer a few minutes after turning on the dryer the top switch trips the dryer will continue to run but not heat and it will not cut off by it,s self what is wrong?

if you reset the breakers, and just have no heat, but drum turns, the heat coil broke. if the double breaker only trips one side, the coil is touching the machine..
The breaker should have a little bar connecting both levers..if it does not have. go get one that does.

Problem with hotpoint as66vvxna1 dryer

There are a couple of things that you can check. FIRST go to the electrical box where the circuit breaker or fuse for the dryer is. Sometimes on half of the circuit breaker is tripped allowing the controls of the dryer to work, but not the heating element. Turn off the breaker and turn back on. Or replace the fusees. If this does not work, then you may have a loos wire or a burned out heating element. Sometimes there is a bad high temperature switch. Do the circuit breaker or fuse first. If the washer did not spin out the water well enough, the water can short the element to trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse.

Breaker keeps tripping when I use Amana NED5500TQ electric dryer.

Heating element or motor. Usually heating element. Replace limit switch (inside dryer) during repair. Limit switch should shut off before breaker if working correctly.

After repair clean or replace plug/wire. Inspect or replace receptacle in wall.

Breaker trips but is ok now on low heat

First clean the vent in the machine and the wall. Try the machine one time not connected to the wall, see if it works better. Carefully tighten the wire connections at the breaker, including the white. It is possible for a breaker to get weak. Your motor may be wearing out.
