Clothes Dryer not working

The circuit keeps triping. I have checked the plug and it is fine, I have checked the vent and it is fine. Do you have any other solutions or do I have to call a electrican?

GO TO THE ELEMENT AND DISCONNECT THE 2 WIRES SUPPLYING POWER TO IT. RETRY. ALMOST CERTAINLY ITS YOUR PROBLEM OR CHECK THE MOTOR CAPACITOR FOR DEFECT.

If it is tripping the breaker right away there is an issue with the drier shorting to ground. unplug and look for a broken wire in the drier. if the drier runs for 10-15 min maybe 30 before it trips the breaker. there is a loose connection in the wiring. either at the junction box in the wall behind the dryer or at the breaker panel. If it is in the electrical I would call an electritian. Good Luck!

Your circuit breaker is bad,can't tell by looking,remove and take to lowes and match up and install and see if it trips again.

We used our dryer yesterday and everything was fine. I built the box my self to put dryer on. Afterwoods my dryer does not get hot. Its tumbling, but not heating up. Its saying check filter. And that is...


It could have kinked the hose behind the dryer and it is not venting now. Also while you're looking make sure the vent is not stopped up. If the dryer can't vent out the back properly it will overheat. Hope this helps. It would definitely be the easiest fix. Good luck

Keeps blowing the plug fuse and/or triping the circuit breaker when plug in? Been working fine for 5 years until now


That must be the mains cable or the filter box as it enters the TV.
The TV is fused internally so suspect the supply cable or mains filter capacirors.
Hope that helps.

I have a Kenmore model 20802990 washer, it will run for a short while and then stop working, it is almost as if the circuit breaker trips because when I turn the circuit breaker of then back on and switch...


well you right in saying "its triping the braker off" thats what it is doing,,
there is a problem with the washer motor,,its pulling far to many amps so its a fulty motor,,,and it will just keep triping the trip out,,,
its a good job you have trips,,the motor could have gone up in smoke

My pump keeps triping the electrics off


if this is a new installation you may have too much load on one circuit, if it is an old installation check to see if something else has been added to the old circuit.ie: microwave lights applaince etc, if this isnt the case you have a short somewhere in the water pump and it is causing the load to trup your breaker have the pump checked
