Having issues with your dryer? Call Appliance Handyman for repairs of dryers including but not limited to damp clothing, lint buildup, tripped circuit breakers, clogged vents and more. To determine whether you need repairs, check the following list of symptoms and possible solutions.
Excessive lint in dryer load.
Make sure that you’re emptying out your filter after every use, or according to the manual. Check your filter for fabric softener and debris build-up which may limit air flow.
Long drying time.
Your exhaust vent might be clogged. Similarly to the dryer lint filter, this reduces airflow. Unlike the lint filter, a clogged exhaust may double or even triple the drying time required. Inspect and clean your vent once a year, or according to manual. Inspect it for damages which may be impairing the use.
No heat, but the dryer still spins.
There’s a good chance that your fuse or circuit breaker has failed, resulting in an improper allocation of heat or no heat at all. This can cause your dryer to tumble with no heat, and damp mildew clothes. Call a technician to replace the fuse, as this is a tricky repair.
The dryer doesn’t start.
A possibility is that your door isn’t closing correctly due to some obstruction. Clear the doorway, ensure that all clothing items are out of the way, and there is no dirt, debris or lint accumulating in the door’s crevices.
Another possibility is that your start switch has broken, preventing the dryer from starting and the dryer spinning when the door is closed. This part will require replacement by a skilled professional.
Other dryer Problems Which May Require a Technician’s Attention
If the above doesn’t describe your problem, or the solutions have not worked, you should consider calling Appliance Handyman for dryer repair services. A technician’s attention is usually required for the following symptoms:
