I have a gas clothes dryer which is plugged into a ground

Customer Question

I have a gas clothes dryer which is plugged into a ground fault receptable. and has been for quite a while. The dryer started tripping the circuit. The washer is also plugged into that same receptable and no problems are noted. I plugged the dryer into a standard receptable and it works the way it is intended. There is obviously something wrong with the dryer. Do you have any suggestions.

Ok, just so I understand, the GFI does not trip with the washer plugged in and the dryer unplugged.

The dryer works fine on a regular outlet.

Is that correct?
