Dryer Won’t Come On? Why There’s No Power To Your Dryer Display

If there are no lights on your dryer display or your display is entirely blank, it’s likely there's no power to the display. When this happens, you have no way to control your dryer, meaning there's no way to dry your clothes! And you simply can’t have that.

Why Is My Dryer Not Turning On?

If your dryer display is not turning on, there are a few things that may be going wrong. It could be an issue with your dryer wiring or, even more seriously, the issue may be with your circuit breaker. Let’s get to the bottom of it, so you can get your clothes tumbling again!

Potential issues

  • clothes not drying
  • error codes on the dryer display
  • no lights on the dryer display

The dryer has several electrical components that need to be wired in properly. The wiring may wear down over time or shake loose with the movement of the dryer. If the dryer is getting some power, there may be an error code that pops up on the display that will tell you where the short may be coming from. In more extreme cases, the dryer may not have power at all. The wiring will need to be replaced or reconnected in order for the dryer to function.


  • no power in some rooms
  • air conditioner won’t turn on
  • no power to devices
  • heating unit won't turn on
  • power is out
  • no heat coming from vents
  • no lights on the dryer display

A circuit breaker is the central source of electrical power in your home that supplies your network of electrical control circuits that run power to outlets, lights, alarms, etc with power. When your circuit breaker is overloaded with too much power for one reason or another, it trips. A tripped circuit breaker may cause you to lose power in one room or more, depending on how many rooms are powered by a circuit. It’s important to remember that tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses are not a cause, they are a symptom. Something else is going on with your system to cause it to overload.
