No Power - Electric Dryer

Possible Solutions

Has a household circuit breaker tripped or the fuse blown?

Check to make sure a household fuse has not blown or that a circuit breaker has tripped. Electric dryers use two household fuses or circuit breakers. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, reset the circuit breaker, or replace the fuse if necessary. If the problem continues, call an electrician.

Was the power supply cord installed correctly?

Electric dryers require a 240-volt power supply. If you do not have 240-volt, your electric dryer will not operate correctly. Check with a qualified electrician. Ensure the power cord is properly installed; refer to your installation instructions and reference the videos below for 3 and 4-wire installation. Also, ensure the terminal screws are tight at the dryer, and unplug the dryer before checking the terminal screws.
