A:

Hi Aooddy,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dryer.

I assume your dryer is tripping the household breaker. If the dryer will run in air fluff this indicates an issue in the heat circuit and not the motor circuit. The air fluff will run the motor but the heat is not used.

I am including an image below with the diagram and troubleshooting information.

The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
