Common Dryer Problems We Fix

Whether you have an electric dryer or a gas dryer, there are a number of common problems that may arise over the course of its lifespan. Note that your dryer doesn’t have to be completely inoperable in order for there to be a problem; even if it turns on and runs, there are still things you should watch out for that indicate a need for repairs.

Call our Rochester dryer repair team today if you need help with any of these problems:

  • Dryer gets excessively hot. An over-hot dryer is a serious hazard that should be addressed immediately. You may potentially have clogged dryer vents that need cleaning or a faulty thermostat or heating coils.
  • Dryer doesn’t dry clothes all the way. If your clothes are still damp after a dry cycle or you’re needing to run multiple cycles to get your laundry fully dry, give us a call. You may have blocked vents that are obstructing proper airflow.
  • Dryer turns on, but isn’t producing heat. If your dryer runs but doesn’t get hot, the likely culprit is a bad thermal fuse, thermostat, heating coils, or temperature switch.
  • Dryer drum isn’t spinning. You may need to have a belt or roller replaced if your dryer motor runs, but the drum doesn’t spin.
  • Dryer won’t turn on at all. This is often the result of a power interruption, but if you have verified that the issue isn’t a tripped circuit breaker, give us a call for a diagnostic and repair service.

Schedule Your Dryer Repair or Maintenance Service

With the right care and maintenance, you can expect your dryer to run more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills and saving you from the inconvenience of unexpected breakdowns. A well-maintained dryer is also less likely to become a safety hazard. If you suspect an issue with your dryer, don’t wait to have it checked out by a professional. The longer you wait, the greater the chance that a small problem will turn in to a bigger and potentially more dangerous one.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dryer Repair

What are the most common dryer problems?

One of the most common problems that people face with their dryer is the machine not starting, or heating up. If this happens, you may want to check if the dryer is plugged in and if there’s a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse. Another issue could be if the dryer isn’t tumbling your clothes around properly. This could be caused by a belt that's either broken or slipping. You can check this by opening up the dryer and inspecting the belt to see if it's properly positioned or broken. If your dryer doesn't have heat, or doesn't dry your clothes fast enough, it could be an issue with airflow. Clean the lint filter regularly, and also check that the vent is clear.

How do you diagnose a dryer problem?

As mentioned earlier, check to see if your dryer is receiving the correct amount of power, whether it’s plugged in and the circuit breaker or fuse isn’t tripped. Also, be sure to check the vent and lint filter as well. If there's a belt issue, you can either repair or replace it. You can also remove the front panel, blower wheel cover and inspect it to see if it’s clogged with lint or debris. Lastly, if your dryer has an issue with heat or drying clothes, the issue could be with airflow. If you’ve exhausted all options and are still unable to get your dryer to function properly, it’s best to call a professional.

How many years should a dryer last?

This is mostly dependent on the brand of dryer you own, as there's no one-size-fits-all answer. In general, a typical dryer should last between 10-13 years, with regular maintenance and replacement of any parts that wear down with use. Most standard residential dryers come with a warranty that lasts either 1-5 years depending on the brand.

When should I call a professional?

If you've tried all the basic troubleshooting steps and your dryer still isn't functioning, it's time to call a professional. Professional technicians not only have the proper tools to diagnose the issue, but they also have the expertise to repair it safely and efficiently.
