Dryer Problems & Solutions

My dryer is making strange noises or vibrations.

If your dryer is making strange noises, then a failed dryer drum seal might be the cause. This seal can wear down over time as a result of frequent overloading, or through contact with foreign objects. It will eventually need to be replaced.

My dryer runs, but never heats up.

If your dryer won't heat up, then it could mean that the thermal fuse has failed. Some things can cause this to happen include blocked ventilation, clogged lint screens, or a consistently overloaded machine. If the thermal fuse is broken, it would need to be replaced.

My dryer doesn't run.

Your dryer will stop running when its thermal fuse has failed. The causes for it's failure vary, but can involve a clogged lint screen, an overloaded machine, or blocked ventilation. If the thermal fuse is broken, it would need to be replaced.

My dryer runs, but does not get my clothes dry.

Your dryer will not be able to dry your laundry if the heating element has broken. Some things that can cause it to fail include blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, and a consistently overloaded machine. If the heating element fails, it will need to be replaced.

My dryer runs, but then shuts off quickly.

If your dryer runs for a short time before shutting off, then it could indicate a problem with the thermostat. Problems with this component can spring up as a result of blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, or a consistently overloaded machine. If the thermostat fails, it will need to be replaced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible downtime, for simple parts not on truck why wasnt the parts on the truck the first time repairman got here, simple ign. glow plugs should have been on the truck and repairs would have been done on time. Why did i have to wait another week for parts to be mailed and then installed. Repairs great downtime terrible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from washer/dryer yearly maintenance This wasn't a repair just a yearly maintenance service. No one can repair our dryer that we've paid maintenance fees on for the past six years we've had it. When I explained it to the technician (just like the others that have been here through the years) he told me to use the timed dry on the machine. Whenever it is on "towels" it just keep running until I go down and shut it off manually. This has happened since we purchased the dryer.
