Not Operating - No Power - Electric Dryer

Possible Solutions

Have you checked your home circuit breakers? 

Electric dryers require a separate 30 amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. This means there will be 2 circuit breakers to operate the dryer. One circuit will operate the motor (turning the dryer drum), while the other circuit will operate the heating element. If one of these is tripped, the dryer may not heat. Check that both circuit breakers operating the dryer are not tripped.  

Power Supply Cord Installed Correctly (Electric Dryers Only): 

Electric dryers require a 240-volt power supply from your wall outlet. If you do not have 240-volt, your electric dryer will not operate correctly. Check with a qualified electrician.

For electric dryers, the wall plug will look like one of the two options below. If you do not have this type of wall plug, you will need to contact a qualified electrician if you are using an electric dryer.

Verify that the plug has been inserted all the way into the wall outlet.
