Nothing is more frustrating than damp clothes when dealing with dryers. While the most common complaint about dryers is that they no longer dry, we often see problems with lint buildup in the filter, tripped circuit breakers, and clogged vents. To keep your dryer working properly and avoid common dryer problems, follow our dryer repair tips and tricks.
Common Dryer Problems
Clogged Dryer Lint Filter
Excessive lint in your dryer can be frustrating. As one of the most common dryer problems, it’s also one of the easiest to solve. To fix your clogged lint filter, simply clean it out after each use. Make sure to check the filter for any buildup of fabric softener that will limit air flow. Properly disposing of lint will keep your dryer running efficiently and safely.
Clogged Exhaust Vent
Similar to the dryer lint filter, a clogged dryer vent can reduce air flow, doubling or tripling the drying time. Avoid this by thoroughly inspecting and cleaning your dryer vent once a year. You may need to have your dryer vents repaired if you’ve tried cleaning you vent system and still have issues.
Failed Internal Fuse
Most household dryers use fuses or circuit breakers. It’s possible that its fuse has failed if your dryer still tumbles with no heat. This results in loads of damp, mildew-scented clothes. We advise calling a technician to replace the fuse.
Broken Start Switch
The start switch allows the dryer to start tumbling when the door is closed. If the dryer does not start, the switch may be broken. Our expert technicians will replace it with the manufacturer-approved replacement part.
