My dryer recently quit working. I bought a used set and the dryer worked for a day then will not turn on. So, I bought a new washer and dryer set and the dryer still will not turn on. The display lights up but when I hit the start button it acts like there is a short. I replaced the breaker, outlet and wire and still nothing. I checked the power and each side is getting 120 volts and both sides are getting 240 volts. I even brought over a dryer from a friends house that works and nothing happens. Can not figure out why the dryer will not turn on.
Try putting a new bulb in the light fixture over your laundry. Also my foreman taught me that dryer and stove cooktop receptacles look nearly the same.
Check the connections at the back of the dryer to make sure it is getting 240 v. The dryer should be wired in 10/3 romex.
Bobby is right, always start from the beginning when troubleshooting
A motor requires a certain amperage to begin moving, maybe the wire is not feeding enough amps or your nuetral return wire is not establishing a good enough connection to send the amperage and electricity back to the panel. Check resiatance onf nuetral to groundthe less ohms the better your nuetral.
