Laundry is a headache, especially if the dryer malfunctions or completely stops working. Sure, hanging the clothes outside on a clothesline is a ‘thing,’ but who really wants to endure all the extra effort that it takes? Nothing beats the snuggly feeling clothes have when they come out of the dryer! Dryers often fail us at the worst time, like after a big wash or when it seems like no one in the house has any clean clothes! And problems may occur without notice, despite proper maintenance. Call our appliance repair company serving Montgomery County if any of the following common dryer problems occur. Your dryer likely has plenty of life left in it after proper repair.
- Dryer Won’t Turn On: When you set the timer or push the ‘start’ button to cycle on the dryer you expect to hear the turn of the drum and momentarily, a bit of heat. When the dryer will not turn on at all, check your settings followed by the power. Often it is one of these minor issues causing the trouble. A faulty start switch, or thermostat may also cause this common dryer problem.
- Dryer Vibrates/Makes Strange Noises: Often the result of a faulty drum seal, repair requires mere replacement of the seal. This problem often occurs as the result of overloading.
- No Heat: When the dryer runs but does not heat up, a faulty heating element is often the culprit, although other possibilities include blocked ventilation or a clogged lint filter. Clean the lint filter and then a professional if this does not resolve the problem.
- Dryer Shuts Off: A dryer should operate the entire cycle that it is set to. If the dryer shuts off soon after a cycle begins, the thermostat may need to be replaced. Blocked ventilation also causes this problem.
