DRYER IS NOT HEATING
If the dryer is working but not producing any heat you are having the most common problem with dryers. Most of the time the problem is in a blown fuse or a faulty heating element. There are times when the main control board needs to be replaced in order to solve this problem.
DRYER WON’T SPIN
When your dryer stopped spinning it is most likely caused by a broken belt, you can reach to the drum and try turning it by hand – if it spins easily, the belt is probably broken or slipped off. A not spinning dryer can be also due to a faulty drum roller. In rare cases the motor is faulty and the dryer won’t spin.
DRYER TAKES TOO LONG TO DRY
The dryer will take too long to dry if there is a problem with the airflow. If the vent is clogged the air circulation is restricted and the dryer would take a long time to dry – you should clean the vent at least once a year to prevent it from being clogged. Also a faulty blower wheel would not draw enough air into the dryer causing it to dry longer, in many cases there is just a sock in the blower wheel and when removed solves the problem.
DRYER WON’T START
If your dryer wont start it might be due to blown thermal fuse which is there to protect the dryer from overheating, if the dryer is overheating the fuse would blow out. A common reason for this problem is a faulty start switch, try starting the dryer – if it hums but won’t start the switch is ok, but if there is no humming sound and the dryer won’t start, it is most likely due to a faulty start switch. Door switch that prevents the dryer from starting if the door is open could be faulty and causing this problem.
DRYER IS NOISY
If your dryer started to be noisy it is probably caused by a broken belt, a faulty drum roller or a drum roller axle.
