Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer
« on: October 03, 2011, 06:41:56 PM »
I am working on a Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer - Model # WED9600TAD and it just keeps tripping the breaker everytime I start it. Looking for an obvious short in the wiring but what else should I look at or what else could it be? Thanks In Advance For Any Help!

Thanks, I will check the block for tight connections as well as the element to be sure its not causing a dead short against anything. I appreciate the feed back!

That could also be a shorted heating element.
