Does Your Dryer Need to Be Repaired?
Do you have an older or second-hand dryer? Is it beginning to have a hard time drying your laundry loads? If so, you’ve come to the right place. The experts at Domestic Appliance Repairs understand how difficult it can be for people to assess the condition of their dryers or washers and that there is a sense of urgency and a significant amount of money at stake when an item is unfixable. To help you recognise whether it’s time to repair your dryer, here are some of the best signs that it’s time to call a dryer repairs professional.
Do you think the dryer isn’t heating enough?
This is one of the first signs that will let you know if your dryer needs to be repaired. If you notice that your clothing isn’t dryer quickly or that you have to perform multiple dryer loads to get the same results you used to, this could mean that your dryer needs to be repaired. Here’s what you should do before you decide to have your dryer repaired.
Try different heating cycles
If you’re not sure if your dryer isn’t heating enough, you should change the heating cycle you’re using. It happens quite often that someone will claim to have an issue with a dryer when it’s on the air-only cycle.
Your lint filter
If your dryer isn’t heating enough, it could also be because your lint filter is clogged. This filter often allows air to travel in and out of the dryer. You should clean this filter and try drying your clothing again to determine whether this is the problem.
Is your dryer starting?
If your dryer isn’t starting, there are a few things that could be wrong. The first is that your dryer’s cord or plug has been melted. This often happens because your dryer requires high voltage and if you find that these parts of your dryer have been melted, you should avoid using it until you can replace these parts.
If your door isn’t starting, you should also look toward your dryer’s door as a possible source for problems. Your door has a little switch that allows your door to close and stay in place. For your dryer door to close, you’ll also need the door actuator. If either of these parts have broken, they’re pretty easy to fix.
Is there a problem with your dryer’s vents?
We also tend to encounter a lot of problems with our clients’ vents. Most often, there’s an issue with the dryer venting to the outside. If you’re having this problem, you should check your vent to make sure that it’s still lined up and installed properly.
Once again, this might be a problem with your dryer’s filter. If it’s been clogged, you might have to replace your dryer filter or you’ll have to clean it out. This filter ensures that air can be released properly.
Having a working dryer is essential for anyone who wants to have an efficient home.
