Types of Dryers We Repair

Every household has unique needs, and so does every dryer. Mr. Appliance® of Comal & Guadalupe’s experienced technicians are trained and equipped to handle repairs for various types of dryers, including:

  • Electric dryers
  • Gas dryers
  • Front-loading dryers
  • Vented dryers
  • Ventless dryers

Discovering the Difference: Gas vs. Electric Dryers

When it comes to choosing between a gas dryer and an electric dryer, the main distinction lies in how they generate heat. While both types utilize rotating drums to tumble wet clothes through warm air and evaporate moisture, gas dryers rely on natural gas or propane for heat circulation, whereas electric dryers rely on electricity.

Electric dryers typically have a lower upfront cost, but over time, customers usually recoup the initial expense of a gas dryer within about five years. This is due to the fact that gas dryers heat up and dry clothes more quickly, ultimately making them more efficient and cost-effective. Both types of dryers require proper venting, although gas dryers emit higher levels of carbon emissions and carry a risk of carbon monoxide exposure.

Whether you're in need of repairs for a gas or electric dryer, or even a washer-dryer combo, Mr. Appliance® of Comal & Guadalupe offers affordable dryer repair services.

Common Dryer Problems We Can Help With

Is your dryer acting up? Just like any other appliance, dryers can experience issues and damage over time. Don't worry, though. Our team at Mr. Appliance® of Comal & Guadalupe is here to provide regular maintenance and timely repairs for these common problems.

Loud Noises from Your Dryer

Annoyingly loud, squeaking, squealing, grinding, or thumping noises coming from your dryer could indicate more complex issues. It might be a broken belt, a loose idler pulley, or worn-out drum bearings. Our skilled service professionals are ready to diagnose and fix these problems quickly.

Dryer Won't Start?

If your dryer refuses to start, don't panic. There could be various reasons behind it, from simple fixes like an unplugged unit to more complicated problems like a blown thermal fuse. Let our experts identify the cause of why it won’t start and get your dryer up and running again.

Dryer Won't Shut Off?

A malfunctioning dryer that won't shut off when the door is open can pose a safety hazard. The faulty door switch is often to blame in such situations. Schedule an appointment with our service professionals to repair or replace the switch in your dryer's door.

Dryer shut off Too Soon?

Is your electric dryer starting but then stopping unexpectedly? This inconvenience may be due to a blown thermal fuse. Contact us if you're experiencing this issue so we can diagnose and fix it promptly.

Dryer Takes Too Long to Dry?

On average, a gas or electric dryer typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes to dry a full load of clothes. However, denser fabrics or larger loads may require additional drying time, and it's not uncommon for it to take up to an hour for these items to dry completely. If your dryer seems to take forever to dry your clothes, there might be underlying issues causing this delay - user error, clogged lint vents, broken sensors, or blown thermal fuses. Try basic troubleshooting by checking the user manual and cleaning lint traps; if the problem persists, reach out to our experienced team for assistance.

Dryer Not Heating Properly?

There can be several reasons why your gas or electric dryer isn't heating as it should. Let our service professionals at Mr. Appliance diagnose and address the cause of the heating problem for you.

Dryer Won't Tumble?

If your dryer drum refuses to spin or tumble, it's likely due to a worn-out or broken drum bearing or drive belt. Contact Mr. Appliance® of Comal & Guadalupe to schedule an appointment and have our experts replace the bearing and belt for you.

Dryer Door Won't Shut?

A malfunctioning dryer door can lead to multiple issues. If you're having trouble with your dryer door, check the integrity of the door latch. The metal spring clamp and plastic clasp are vital components - if bent, damaged, or broken, our skilled technicians can provide a fast repair.

FAQs: Common Questions About Dryer Repair

Whether you consider yourself a dryer repair expert or not, it's natural to have questions about common dryer issues and malfunctions. Our team of service professionals has answered some of the most frequently asked questions below.

What Causes Dryer Malfunctions?

A malfunctioning dryer can result from various factors. Simple fixes like an unplugged unit, overloaded dryer, or blown circuit are common culprits. More complex issues such as a faulty outlet, blown thermal fuse, broken door switch, or failing start button, belt, or motor could also cause dryer malfunctions.

How Do You Know If Your Dryer Is Broken?

You can identify a broken dryer if it takes too long to dry clothes, fails to start, stop, spin, or heat up properly. Additionally, loud noises or a burning smell during operation are signs of a malfunction.

Can You Repair Your Dryer Yourself?

Repairing your dryer by yourself is possible depending on the problem. In some cases, you can purchase and replace specific parts. However, more complex problems involving the control board, thermal fuse, or heating element should be handled by a professional.

Is It Worth Repairing a Dryer?

Repairing a dryer is worthwhile if the cost of repair is less than two-thirds of the cost of a new one. Even as a short-term solution, repairs can be considered if replacing the unit is not within your budget.

What Does a Gas Dryer Hookup Look Like?

A gas dryer hookup consists of two connections: an electric cord that plugs into a 120-volt AC outlet and the gas line hookup. The gas line hookup is typically yellow-coated but can also appear as a braided stainless steel line.

Does a Gas Dryer Require a 220-volt Outlet?

No, a gas dryer can plug into a standard 120-volt outlet. However, an electric dryer requires the additional power of a 220-volt outlet.

What Is a Thermal Fuse?

A thermal fuse is a safety device installed on dryers that trips if the airflow causes overheating. The most common reason for the fuse to trip is a blocked exhaust vent. If the thermal fuse blows, it needs to be replaced by a service professional.

Why Does My Dryer Smell Like Gas?

The smell of gas from your dryer can stem from multiple reasons, with a faulty igniter being the most common cause. A leaking exhaust system in the gas dryer can also be a possibility. If you detect a gas or kerosene-like odor when the dryer isn't running, contact your gas company immediately and wait for their inspection before calling for repairs.

Do I Need a Gas Dryer Vent?

Yes, you need a gas dryer vent. Gas dryers produce carbon dioxide, which can be harmful in large quantities and should always be vented outside. Venting also removes water vapor that could lead to mildew growth in your laundry room.

How Can I Determine If My Dryer Is Gas or Electric?

To determine whether your dryer is gas or electric, check its connectors. If there's only one cord attached—an electric plug running into a 220-volt outlet—then it's an electric dryer. If there's an additional thin connector (usually stainless steel) along with the smaller electric wire, then it's a gas dryer.
