FAQ & TIPS

When your dryer is less than 8 years old and the repair cost is less than half the cost of buying a new dryer, it usually makes more sense to repair the dishwasher rather than replace it.

Read about simple troubleshooting tips for gas and electric dryers.

DIY QUICK FIXES: DRYER TROUBLESHOOTING

  1. Open the door and close it firmly to ensure it's closed properly.
  2. Confirm it’s receiving power. If lights on the display don’t turn on when you press them or other appliances in the room are also not functional, reset the breaker and try again.
  3. If your house has a fuse panel, check to see if the fuse has blown and replace it if necessary.
  4. Make sure the dryer is plugged directly into a power outlet and not into an extension cord.
  1. Confirm you're choosing a cycle that uses heat to dry clothing. Cycles like Air Dry or Air Fluff don’t use heat, and may take longer to completely dry clothing.
  2. Make sure there's no lint blocking the exhaust vent (located on the outside of your home).
  3. Check to be sure the vent hose running from the dryer to the wall isn't kinked or crushed. If the hose is damaged, replace it with a rigid metal or rigid flexible hose (as opposed to vinyl or foil).
  4. Double-check that your vent hose is as straight as possible and no longer than 25 feet. If the hose has any 90-degree turns, it should be no longer than 20-feet because the turn can restrict airflow and increase drying time.
  5. For gas dryers, make sure the gas is running properly. An easy way to identify a gas supply issue is to check another gas appliance in your home:
  • On Gas Ranges - Turn on burners to see if they light.
  • On Water Heaters - See if pilot light is lit.
  • On Gas Furnace - Turn on Furnace, set to 80° and check for heat coming from heater vents.
  1. Gas dryers may make a clicking sound when the gas valve cycles on and off—this is normal.
  2. Before starting the dryer, check all pockets and remove any coins or loose objects.
  3. If you hear the noises while the dryer is running, stop the unit and look for any loose objects at the base of the drum.
  4. Make sure the dryer is level and that all four feet are firmly on the ground. If the unit isn't level, it can rock during cycles and cause noise.

There are several dryer components that may be the culprit if your gas or electric dryer will tumble but won’t generate any heat to dry your clothes. Here’s what you need to check:

  1. Confirm the thermal fuse hasn't overheated and is properly connected.
  2. The radiant sensor triggers the gas valve coils to start up when the igniter gets hot enough. (Gas dryers only)
  3. Similar to the thermal fuse, the gas dryer igniter may break or burn out. If it’s not glowing, it won't ignite the gas in the burner.
  4. Heating Elements can burn out over time, leaving you with a dryer that won’t heat. In a gas dryer, check to ensure gas valve coils are powering up. For electric, test the heater element for continuity.
