    Susan, please call an electrician. This could be dangerous.

  • I wouldn't use it until a professional has a look. This could be a fire hazard - leave it unplugged.

    Water and electricity is a bad mix so be careful there must be a ground wire that is either missing or not correctly connected in the plug or your outlet your plugging into? or on the back of your washer where the plug wire goes in.

    Is it an actual shock or static? Check for static by touching the dryer. If it doesn't do it as well, definitely have an electrician look at it or a repairman.

    Susan, they're right safety is first and foremost. You should call an electrician. I have a question, though. Like Kathy says it could be static electricity. Have you done something new? Added a carpet, rug? House less humid? It could be as simple as that. Any changes? BE safe.
