Our GE Dryer (model EED3000BOWW)completed its dry cycle and then we heard a loud pop. Apparently short circuited and threw the circuit breaker. When I reset the breaker, it immediately blew again. If I unplug the unit and reset, the circuit breaker stays on. The power cord looks fried along with the terminal black and ground strap. Should I simply replace these parts or is there something else i should check to see if there was another cause for the problem? Would I also need to replace the thermal fuse? Thank you
ANSWER Hello David. You need to look for the heater touching metal ground or a wire grounded and causing a direct short on the unit.
