A dryer that won’t heat or takes too long to dry clothes can throw a monkey wrench into your day. We’ve listed some of the most common problems here, along with common solutions.
Please don’t hesitate to call us to request professional dryer repair near you.
If your dryer takes too long to dry clothes, the dryer vent may need a good cleaning. A clogged dryer vent blocks proper air flow. Without sufficient air flow, your dryer can do it’s job. We recommend cleaning your dryer vents every six to twelve months depending on use.
If a clogged dryer vent is not the cause of your dryer taking too long, we can help diagnose failed parts, including:
- Obstructed Blower Wheel
- Failed Gas Valve Solenoid
- Burned Out Heating Element
- Clogged Lint Filter
- Broken Moisture Sensor
One of the first things you should check when your dryer won’t start is that the door is latched closed. If the door isn’t fully closed, the dryer won’t start.
Other common causes of a dryer not starting include:
- Blown Thermal Fuse
- Defective Start Switch
- Broken Door Switch
- Defective Drive Motor
A dryer drum not turning can cause your clothes to take longer to dry. Our dryer repair Chicago technicians have extensive experience fixing these and other issues:
- Worn Out Drive Belt
- Worn Out Drum Roller
- Worn Out Drum Roller Axle
- Faulty Drum Bearing
