Hi Kelly. I have a Maytag MDE2400AYW dryer stacked on an RV. The dryer keeps tripping the breaker even with the door open. I have pressed the door switch repeatedly but it still does a slight hum before the breaker immediately throws. We had used it earlier this week at another campground and it ran fine, but now it won't start. I've checked for 220 v to the breaker at the dryer and it tested ok.

Hello Ezekiel. No, I don't have to push start. When I reset the breaker, the dryer makes a brief humming noise like the motor is stalled, and then immediately trips the breaker.

Ok yes that humming is the motor bound up in front of the dryer where the filter goes if something got thru a sock anything it will get stuck in the blower housing can u open the door and rotate the drum or is a little hard to turn

The drum turns freely. The odd thing is that it will hum regardless of whether the door is open or not.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ezekiel. Are you still live on this? I don't see anyway a sock could get in the drum by the filter. Again the drum turns freely.Any ideas?
Appliance Technician: Ezekiel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

if the drum turns freely so should the motor unless its locked up or if the belt pulley is bad it wont spin causing the motor to hum then trip the breaker
