Dryer Repair Tips

Clothes dryers frequently provide no warning of an impending breakdown.

Even the most modern digital clothes dryers, however, are fairly simple devices, so fixing one can typically be accomplished rather quickly except in those cases where a high tech control unit must be replaced. The good news in this regard, if anything about a broken dryer could be considered good news, is that electronic controls will often fail when the dryer is new and still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

Older dryers will typically suffer from one of three things.

1. The motor that turns the drum dies.

It must be replaced. The cost for this repair can vary according to the motor involved, so always obtain an estimate for the purpose of deciding between having a dryer repaired or replacing it.

2. The heating element burns out.

This is a relatively simple repair, one that is not too costly, and one for which most repair companies will have a replacement part available. For a dryer that is less than 10 years old, this will in all probability be a cost-effective repair. For dryers beyond that age a replacement might be considered if the dryer exhibits other issues or has a history of breakdowns.

3. A broken drive belt.

The drum that spins the clothes is driven by a belt similar to that on a car. This belt goes from a pulley on the motor to a pulley on the drum in some instances, and in others wraps around the drum itself. This is probably the most common dryer problem. The heat from drying clothes causes the belt to dry out and become brittle. Also, heavy items such as rugs and blankets can cause the drum to spin an evenly, which can place excessive strain on the belt.

Hi-Tech Appliance Repair in Westwood can handle these and any other situation that has you faced with the dilemma of not being able to dry clothes. In most instances, they can do this quickly and economically enough to remove the consideration of buying a new dryer completely out of the equation.
