We just bought a house and for the first two weeks, the dryer left in the house worked. However, because it took quite a while to dry the clothes, we were concidering buying a new dryer. Within two days, the dryer started to trip the circuit breaker the instant the dryer was turned on.

This was our excuse to buy a new dryer. Now the new dryer trips the circuit breaker. In the past week, I've tried to reset the circuit breaker several times a day and on two occasions, the dryer actually started. We purchased a Kenmore Elite dryer and to the best of my knowledge, the circuit is 30 amps and there aren't any other electrical devices using the same circuit.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

The breaker is doing its job. You have a short or loose connection somewhere in the dryer circuit. Have a licensed electrician check it out for you.

Thanks for the response. About how much do you think it might cost?

That depends entirely on where you live, what is wrong, and what it takes to fix it.
