Hi, I have a 700 series dryer that is about 10 years old. Currently it will run for almost a complete cycle but will blow its breaker before finishing. I have checked resistances and cannot find any signs of overheating. Any suggestions?

A house breaker?

If so, that is most often caused by a 'weak' breaker or a poor connection in the house breaker panel. Usually when a problem in the dryer is responsible it will trip the breaker as soon as turned on or as soon as heating starts, not after a while.

I suggest you have a licensed electrician look at your breaker panel.
