Checking if a Household Fuse or Circuit Breaker has Tripped

Has a Household Fuse or Circuit Breaker has Tripped on your  Whirlpool Dryer?

If the dryer is not functioning, the power source may be the problem. There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight before operating the dryer again. Moreover, check that both circuit breakers have not been tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.

Electric Dryers require 2 circuit breakers or fuses.
