    Common dryer repair parts you may need

    Replacing one of these dryer parts may fix your problem.

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    If the sound and signal functions are not functioning on your dryer, a faulty electronic control board might be the culprit. This board is responsible for sending signals to the control panel to manage sound and signal features. When there's no sound coming from the dryer, it could indicate corrupted internal logic in the electronic control board or a broken internal relay. If your clothes dryer is silent, it's best to have a Sears Home Services Technician inspect your appliance and replace the electronic control board if necessary.


    Power Supply Board Replacement

    If the display isn't functioning on your dryer, a faulty power supply board might require replacement. This board is responsible for distributing electrical current from the dryer's power cord to various components, including the electronic control board. If the power supply board fails to deliver power to the electronic control board or the control panel, the dryer won't power up. If your dryer is entirely unresponsive, it's advisable to schedule a visit from a Sears Home Services Technician to inspect the appliance. The technician will replace the power supply board if it's found to be defective.

    User Interface Control Replacement

    If the sound feature on your dryer's control panel isn't functioning, a malfunctioning user interface control could be the culprit. This control unit is responsible for transmitting signals to the control panel to initiate alarms and sound functions. If the user interface control is defective, it won't send the correct signal to activate sound on the control panel. If you're experiencing issues with the sound on your dryer, it's advisable to schedule repair service. A Sears Home Services Technician will then visit your home to diagnose and resolve the problem.

    What to expect when you experience a dryer no sound issue

    How do I fix a no sound problem

    Addressing most issues with no sound typically entails replacing the electronic control board, power supply board, or user interface control. Nevertheless, since various factors could contribute to the problem, conducting a comprehensive diagnosis is crucial for resolving it. An accurate diagnosis is pivotal for determining the cost of the repair.

    Sears Home Services provides solutions for a dryer that has no sound

    If your dryer lacks sound, it could stem from various causes. To prevent unnecessary part replacements, we suggest having a Sears Home Services expert conduct diagnostic tests to pinpoint the underlying issue. Our technicians possess extensive experience in diagnosing a wide range of dryer malfunctions.

    What to expect with a dryer no sound diagnosis

    Understanding and diagnosing issues with modern appliances can be challenging without the right expertise and training. Attempting repairs without proper diagnostic methods may lead to replacing parts without certainty. Over the last decade, appliances have evolved significantly, with electronic components that are hard to assess. DIY fixes on newer models are growing more complex.

    Excellent service from Daniel

    Daniel provided excellent service and was very quick to perform the repair. I have nothing good to say about the warranty program and the LACK of customer service and the inability to contact a human being to talk.
