A Few Typical Dryer Problems

The need for clothes dryer repairs will vary depending on the problems you’re encountering. Here are a few of the most common symptoms:

1. Dryer Has No Heat

A dryer that won’t heat can be a frustrating problem to solve. There are a few possible root causes. The most common is perhaps a malfunction with the heating element, which is itself responsible for upping the temperature in your dryer. Also possible is a failure of the high-limit or cycling thermostats, which are responsible for maintaining safe and effective temperatures in our machine. When these fail, the problem is not that your heating element is unable to function, but simply that your dryer doesn’t “know” how hot it is. In this case, you need dryer repair.

2. Dryer Squeaking 

A squeaking dryer is one of the more frustrating problems you can have. Not only is the noise annoying, but it can be difficult to understand as there are many potential causes. 

There may be wearing in the rear drum mount bearings, in the belt idler pulley, in the support roller, or in countless other pieces of the mechanism. Here, a service technician can help by carefully eliminating possibilities (through diligent testing) until the offending component is identified. This ensures that once a dryer repair is made, you won’t have to deal with the issue again as soon as you turn the dryer back on.

3. Dryer Smells Bad

Over time, lint can build up in your dryer. The idea is to limit this build-up through the use of a lint-catcher…but even the best won’t catch everything. The lint that does get through can cause a blockage of your dryer’s vent, leading to trapped moisture, which leads to bacteria, which in turn leads to a terrible smell. In most cases, a thorough cleaning should be all that’s needed to put things right.
