When the electrician was here, he pulled out both the washer and the dryer, and checked it out.  he didn't find any type of water source from the washer.  he even checked my vent on the dryer, to make sure it wasn't clogged up.  He was pretty thorough, probably because his wife is a good friend and I could make his life miserable if I wanted to.  :);)

Anyway, I don't think that's the source.  here's where I'm really starting to get frustrated.  My roofing guy is reluctant to come out and get on the roof, because he says that, I had a leak, I would know it.  the electrician doesn't want to put in another outlet or tear out the sheetrock to dry anything out, until the roof is checked.  His theory is, that if there is a leak, fixing it isn't going to work because I'll be screwed as soon as it rains again.

My roofing guy wanted to know if there is a wurge of power to the dryer when it turns on or off?  he's thinking that, if so, maybe that surge is what's throwing the breaker and shorting the outlet?  I don't think that could be it, but I told him I'd ask.
