COMMON DRYER REPAIR ISSUES AND FIXES

Loud Noise or Vibration

Drive Belt

The drive belt plays a crucial role in rotating the drum during a dry cycle. Given the stress it undergoes during operation, it is susceptible to wear and tear, leading to breakages. If your dryer is producing excessive noise, it may be a sign that it’s time to replace the drive belt.

Dryer Drum Roller

A drum roller is responsible for keeping the drum in place during the dry cycle. If your dryer is making excessive noise, inspect the drum roller. Depending on the situation, you may need to replace one or multiple rollers to effectively resolve the issue.

Dryer Blower

The blower circulates air by expelling hot air through the vent. If your dryer is generating excessive noise, experiencing vibrations, or taking longer to dry clothes, it may be a sign that the blower needs to be replaced.

Dryer Has No Heat

Drive Belt

A drive belt is essential for rotating the drum during a dryer’s cycle. Due to the stress it endures during operation, it can wear out or even break. If your dryer is generating excessive noise, it might be a signal that it’s time to replace the drive belt.

Dryer Drum Roller

The roller drum is responsible for keeping the dryer drum in place during the cycle. If your dryer is producing excessive noise, it’s crucial to inspect the roller drum. Depending on the situation, you may need to replace one or all of the rollers to effectively resolve the noise issue.

Dryer Blower

The blower plays a critical role in circulating air by expelling hot air through the dryer vent. Excessive noise, vibrations, or longer drying times could indicate a problem with the blower. Replacing the blower may be necessary to address these issues effectively.

Dryer Won’t Spin?

Drum Belt

You can check if the drum belt is broken by manually spinning the drum. If the drum rotates too quickly or doesn’t turn smoothly, it’s a sign that the belt may be damaged. Regularly inspecting the belt for wear and tear is a good practice. If you notice any issues, replacing the belt may be necessary to ensure proper dryer functionality.

Drum Roller

Dryers often have multiple drum rollers, and when these rollers become damaged, they can impede the drum’s ability to spin smoothly, placing additional strain on the dryer motor. If the drum doesn’t turn freely or spins unevenly when rotated by hand, it may be necessary to replace the damaged drum rollers to restore proper functionality to your dryer.

Drum Slides

Drum slides, located at the front of the drum, are crucial for supporting and guiding the dryer’s drum rotation. When these slides become worn out, excessive friction can occur, potentially causing the motor to malfunction. Regularly inspecting the drum slides is important, and if they are damaged or worn, they should be replaced as a set to ensure your dryer operates correctly.

Drum Bearing

The drum bearing in a dryer is a critical component located at the back of the drum. To check if your drum bearings are faulty, first remove the drive belt and then manually spin the drum. If you feel or hear a grinding noise, it’s a sign that your drum bearings are worn out. In such cases, it’s important to inspect and replace the faulty drum bearings to ensure your dryer functions properly again.

Dryer Won’t Start

Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse in your dryer is crucial for preventing overheating and is typically located near the heat source. A blown thermal fuse is a common issue that many people encounter. If your thermal fuse has blown, it may indicate that your dryer vent is clogged. It’s essential to clean the vent thoroughly before using the dryer again.

Start Switch

To test the start switch, turn on the dryer. If you hear a humming sound but the dryer doesn’t start, the “Start” switch is functioning. However, if there is no noise when you try to start the dryer, the start switch may be defective. To confirm, use a multimeter to check for continuity. If there is no continuity, the start switch needs to be replaced. Replacing a faulty start switch is best handled by a professional dryer repair service to ensure it’s done correctly and safely.

Door Switch

The clicking sound you hear when you close your dryer door is produced by the door switch. If the door switch clicks when you press it, it indicates it is working correctly. However, if there is no click, the switch likely needs to be replaced. If you encounter this issue, seeking professional assistance from a dryer repair service is advisable to diagnose and resolve the problem effectively.

Drive motor

The drive motor is essential for turning the dryer’s drum and operating the blower wheel. If your dryer doesn’t turn on, checking the drive motor is a good idea. First, remove the dryer belt and ensure the blower wheel is free of obstructions. If the blower wheel is clear and the drive motor still isn’t functioning, it may indicate a faulty drive motor that needs replacement.

Dryer Takes A Long Time to Dry

Air Flow

A clogged exhaust vent can indeed lead to problems with your dryer’s performance. When the vent is blocked or restricted, moisture can’t escape effectively, causing longer drying times and potential damage to your dryer. Clear any debris, lint, or blockages that may have accumulated to ensure proper ventilation and efficient drying cycles.

Lint Filter

The first thing to check is your lint filter. This filter catches particles of lint that accumulate on the screen. It’s important to remove these particles after each dryer use to ensure proper airflow and efficiency.

Blower Wheel

If you suspect an issue with the blower wheel, inspecting it properly is essential. Look for any wobbling or irregularities when rotating it by hand. Any abnormalities may indicate a defective blower wheel that needs replacement.

Heating Element

The heating element and coil are vital for warming the air inside your dryer. If you encounter issues like coil burnouts or damage, ensure the heating element is clean and functioning optimally.
