Kenmore 110.66862500 tripped breaker, shot sparks, now dead

3 posts in this topic

Put a load of laundry in the dryer at lunch today and tio my dismay the on button did nothing. Checked the breaker and it had tripped. I reset the breaker. Then when I powered the dryer on it ran for about a half a second then three or four sparks shot out of it (I beleive in the aread of the timer knob). She is now dead.

Thoughts?

So glad this forum here.... :rocker:

The overload may have been caused by a shorted Heater Element.

The Timer may or may not be bad, yet...
