Common Dryer Problems

At Affordable Appliance Repair, our team is highly skilled and trained to address a wide range of common dryer problems. Our team has truly seen it all in our over 20 years in the repair industry. We are confident our technicians will be able to resolve your dryer problem quickly and at an affordable price.

Get in touch with our Phoenix dryer repair professionals if you are experiencing any of the following issues:

  • Dryer not starting. If you are having trouble getting your dryer to turn on, you could be dealing with a wide range of issues, including a power supply problem, shorted thermal safety, shorted wiring harness, burnt wiring harness, or door switch failure. Our experts can help you figure out exactly what is going on and work to get your dryer back to normal.
  • Dryer not heating up. If your dryer is turning on but not heating up, you could be dealing with an issue with the dryer heating element, dryer thermal safety, dryer high-limit switch, dryer timer, or main control board. Dryers that run on gas could be dealing with other problems, including failures with the gas coils, dryer igniter, or dryer thermal cut-off switch.
  • Excess noise. Squeaking or other loud noises could be caused by dryer support rollers, the dryer idler pulley, dryer bearings, dryer glides, or dryer blower wheels. We can help you determine the precise cause of the noise and fix the underlying issue as quickly as possible.
  • Low levels of heat. A heating element failure, a dryer heat limiter short cycling, or a clogged or crushed wall vent could be affecting your dryer’s ability to provide enough heat to sufficiently dry your clothes.
  • Error codes from the control board. Error codes and more complex operating issues could be linked to a variety of components in your dryer. Our technicians are trained to read, diagnose, and solve the problems related to these error codes.

Should I Repair or Replace My Dryer?

The average dryer will typically last between 10 to 13 years depending on the make and model as well as how well it has been maintained. Regular maintenance and cleaning can significantly extend the life of a dryer. Additionally, dryers that are used more frequently may experience more wear and tear and may need to be replaced sooner than those used less often.

If your dryer is nearing or has surpassed its expected lifespan, it may be more cost-effective in the long run to replace it rather than invest in significant or frequent repairs. A good rule of thumb is that if the repairs will cost more than 50% of the price of a new dryer, replacement may be the wiser choice. Keep in mind that modern dryers are typically more energy-efficient and come equipped with advanced features that can potentially reduce monthly energy bills.

Not sure if your dryer is past its prime? After evaluating the state of your appliance, our technicians can offer honest advice on whether repairing or replacing your dryer makes the most sense. 

Best Practices for Taking Care of Your Dryer and Avoiding Problems

By following proper usage practices, you can help your dryer operate smoothly for many years, reducing the likelihood of breakdowns and saving on repair costs. Regular maintenance not only increases the longevity of your appliance but also enhances its efficiency and safety, providing peace of mind while keeping your clothes fresh and dry. 

Here are some tips for taking care of your dryer and avoiding common issues:

  • Clean the lint filter after every use. A clogged lint filter reduces the efficiency of the dryer by restricting airflow, which can lead to longer drying times and increased wear and tear on the machine. More critically, accumulated lint is a fire hazard. After each cycle, remove the lint filter from the dryer and wipe off the lint. Rinse it under water periodically to remove any stubborn residues, and let it dry completely before reinserting it.
  • Inspect and clean the venting system annually. The venting system expels moist air from the dryer to the outside. Blockages can cause overheating, potentially leading to fire or mechanical damage to the dryer. Before starting an inspection, disconnect the dryer from its power source. Use a vent brush or vacuum attachment to clean the vent and the exhaust duct. Ensure that the vent cover on the exterior of your house is clear of debris. 
  • Avoid overloading the dryer. Overloading can strain the dryer’s motor and drum bearings, causing them to wear out faster. It also results in less efficient drying, requiring longer cycles or multiple runs. If you aren’t sure if you are overloading your dyer, consult your user manual to review its load capacity. Try to distribute clothing evenly, and avoid packing the drum too tightly.
  • Check for loose or damaged seals. Damaged or loose seals can lead to air leaks, reducing the efficiency of the dryer and increasing drying times. Inspect the door seal regularly and replace it if you notice any signs of wear or damage.
  • Ensure proper installation. Improper installation, including incorrect leveling or poor venting setup, can cause operational issues and potential safety hazards. If in doubt, consult with a professional installer to ensure your dryer is set up correctly.
