There's nothing wrong with my incoming power.  You might be mistaking my issue for the other person with the month old dryer.

Drag your dryer to your neighbors house or in laws. Plug in dryer and prepare to be amazed! I read the original post again. Im sticking with incoming power issue. I am with tgoods. :D

Oops, yeah I mistook you for the OP. It's better to start a new topic to avoid confusion.

Does anyone have access to the schematics for all the boards.  I would like to see what is supposed to latch that circuit.

I am just writing to follow up on my reported problem. We got the new dryer before we installed and got ready to use I had my electrician replace the circuit breaker that was tripping every time we pushed start and the dryer would turn off. The old breaker was the very sensitive kind with arc fault protection. Not there isn't still some problem in the wiring not sure but the new breaker did the trick. He installed a regular breaker and that was that. No problems with the new dryer. In fact I tried it with the first dryer and all worked as it should so it was not the dryer. If you are experiencing the same or similar problem as I was having then it is most likely the electrical issue similar to mine. I hope I won't have to report another issue and this dryer problem is gone forever.

Thanks for the update.  With those arc-faults, the neutral has to stay on the same circuit or they'll trip. You don't need it for a dryer anyway.
