No Power - Laundry Dryer

No power issues are typically caused by a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty electrical outlet, a power outage in the home, or in rare cases a unit that requires a repair.

If the unit powers ON but is not heating or drying enough, or taking a long time to dry, please visit our Not Heating, Not Drying or Long Time Drying content for further troubleshooting steps.

  1. Check the light.

    Open the dryer door and locate the drum light inside the unit. If the light is ON but the unit will not power ON, the unit will require a repair service. Please visit our Request a Repair page.

    If the light is OFF, then proceed to the next step below.
