Possible Solutions

Was the power supply cord installed correctly?

Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply from your wall outlet. If you do not have 240-volt, your electric dryer will not operate correctly. Check with a qualified electrician.

For electric dryers, the wall plug will look like one of the two options below. If you do not have this type of wall plug, you will need to contact a qualified electrician if you are using an electric dryer.

Verify that the power supply cord is fully plugged into the wall outlet. 

The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions or Video below to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.  Also, ensure the terminal screws are tight at the dryer, unplug the dryer before checking terminal screws.
