Just checking that you have cleaned the lint filter, you didn't say.

If the lint filter is clogged this may be a reason for the check filter light to be flashing.

If the dryer doesn’t start it may be a problem with the door switch, part A330 cabinet and door assembly parts diagram as it completes the circuit for the motor, heater etc to start operating.

Not sure what you mean by “cuts off” though. Do you mean that nothing happens or that the power is lost from the dryer and has to be reset somehow?

War diese Antwort hilfreich?

@jayeff yes sir the lint filter is clean. And when you press the start button it looses power and has to be turned back

@lilherron

If the power trips so that the breaker has to be reset then either there is a problem with the motor or the heater drawing too much current

@jayeff The breaker in my trailor isnt tripping when the dryer cuts off after pressing the start button i can press the power button and the dryer comes back on

@lilherron

Has it worked OK before?

Have you got 240V AC power to the dryer i.e. 2 x 120V AC supplies (4 wire cable) as per the electrical installation for mobile homes (trailer?) found in the user manual see p.12-13

If so check that there is either 120V AC on each power wire or 240V when measured between the two.

BE SAFETY AWARE when testing as the voltage is lethal

@jayeff it started with our old dryer quit working it was working fine one day then next day wouldnt even come on so we got the one we got now bought it used yesterday but i took it back today and they plugged it up and it worked fine so i brought it back home plugged it up and gave me the same problem so i replaced the breaker and power outlet and still got the same result turns on hit the start button turns off so tomorrow im gonna run new wire from breaker to outlet but its crazy cause when we test the voltage we are getting 240 all the way to the dryer
