Any handy ladies out there?

I bought my dryer in Feb 2008 and was gone nearly a year so the dryer hasn't been used that much. It tumbles but the timer doesn't move on any setting and it won't heat up. I've read/heard that the dryer runs on two different breakers. Our neighbor that just moved gave us her dryer. It worked fine at her house but won't heat at mine! Is it possible that a blown breaker is making my dryer not heat AND the timer not move?

  • Yes you may have a blown 220(?). The outlet that you insert the plug may not be working properly. I have had this problem before. Why cant it just be the dryer instead! lol GL!

  • Lol they had to replace that when he first plugged the dryer in because it sparked!! I'm going to be mad if this was the problem all along because all sears would tell me is that I needed to spend 70 dolalrs on a heating element with no returns! I've been hanging out clothes since April!!

  • Ahh yes, I have witnessed the "spark" first hand....not pretty. lol Ok so it may be a heating element if you replaced the 220. I was certain it was the 220 because it worked at her house. Sorry I am of no further use, but try to google "dryer troubleshooting" or DIY (do it yourself) website.
