Does the Dryer Start?
The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won’t, first check the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. Should the breaker trip or the dryer not start this is often indicative of the bad motor.
