A dryer lasts approximately 10 years, possibly up to 15. What is the key to your driver sticking it out for over a decade? Maintaining it and making small repairs before small problems become big ones. If you can make repairs yourself, that’s great, but most people cannot. If you’re “most people”, you need a local dryer repair expert to help you keep this appliance in tip-top shape. Trust Appliance & Air Care Experts be your go-to dryer repair experts.
A dryer is not an appliance you want to delay repairing. Most issues only cause minor inconveniences, but a dryer overheating can be a fire hazard. From big to small, here are some of the most common dryer issues.
The best thing to do in this situation is to check the power source. Is the dryer plugged in? Has a breaker been tripped? Call us if you have checked both and there is still no power. There might be power, but there could be a damaged power cord, door switch, or circuit board among other issues. Our trained technicians will pinpoint the problem quickly.
Your dryer has many moving parts, and a drum inside will usually spin. The motor also generates heat, and that will make some noise, too. However, the noise should not be excessive. If there are unusual noises, it is time to call in the experts to take a look. And, the sooner you tackle the problem, the better chance it will be of an easier and less expensive fix.
Your clothing should come out of the dryer both dry and wrinkle-free. Some people use the dryer to remove wrinkles, throwing in dry clothing for a few minutes to smooth it out. If your dryer has completed a cycle and the clothes are still wrinkled, there is a problem.
It could be that the wrinkles are due to putting too heavy a load in the dryer, so try a smaller load and see if it doesn’t solve the problem. You can also try emptying the lint trap. If your clothes are wrinkled and still a little wet, it could be the heating element that needs to be replaced. We can help
The drum inside the dryer should spin to tumble the clothes and provide uniform heating throughout the dryer. If the drum is off-balance or the belt is broken, the drum might not spin at all or it may spin at an odd angle.
Without proper rotation, the clothes will not dry properly and might appear wrinkled. And, the longer you leave the drum like this, the more it can damage your dryer. This is definitely a time when you should call in the professionals.
If a dryer does not produce heat, well, it is not a dryer. If there is no heat, or not enough heat, first check your settings before you call for help. Be sure that you have the dryer set to the correct setting
The most common problems are a faulty thermal fuse and a broken temperature control switch. Our expert technicians can correct both problems.
The opposite of the above problem is that your dryer might produce too much heat, which can damage clothing. And, in extreme circumstances, it can cause a fire. A lot of combustible material can accumulate in your vents, especially if you are not cleaning them. Over 2,900 homes a year burn down because of dryer fires, and the heat in Highland Park makes homes particularly susceptible, so be aware.
When it comes to overheating, your thermostat is likely broken, and this is not a job that you should tackle yourself (unless you know what you are doing). The longer you wait to call this in, the greater the risk of damage to your dryer and your home.
