Dryer Problems

Strange noises coming out of the drying machine is a prevalent issue for homeowners. Broken seals, bearings, or worn-down belts can lead to loud sounds. Drum bearing or drum supporting bearing do wear out or get damaged over time.

Drum bearings that are frayed or damaged can be diagnosed by removing the dryer belt and turning the drum by hand. If it rotates freely, then the bearing is not frayed. However, if the drum squeaks, makes grinding sounds, or is hard to turn, you should replace the bearing to avoid further damage.

The drive belt wraps around the dryer drum, as well as the tension pulley and the drive motor. The drive belt can be worn out or get damaged over time, which causes noise as the dryer is turning. If the drive belt is worn out or damaged, replace it.

If your drying machine doesn’t produce any heat, this is often caused by a broken heating element, high heating thermostat, or cycling thermostat. This can also cause the dryer to overheat. A thermostat is a device made to prevent a dryer from overheating, and it should be closed for continuity (electric current passing through). 

If it gets overheated, the thermostat will have no continuity, and often, a multimeter will have to be used to test for continuity. A blown thermostat is an indication of a restricted exhaust vent from the dryer to the outside.

Always check the dryer venting when replacing a blown thermal fuse. The heating element warms the air before entering the dryer drum. The heating element can burn out over time, causing the dryer not to heat. 

In order to determine whether the heating element has burned-out, a multimeter must be used to test for continuity. Once it has been determined that there is no continuity, it is wise to  replace the heating element.

Make sure the dryer has been plugged in and the circuit breaker is on. If the dryer won’t turn on, even after it has been plugged in and the circuit breaker is on, check the high-limit thermostat and the heating element. Please refer to the question above on how you can tackle these problems.

If the drying machine won’t shut off, the issue is usually a broken door switch or a timer. The timer can be tested using a multimeter and checking the wiring diagram. If a timer is defective, you should replace it immediately. 

The door switch is an on and off mechanism that prevents the dryer from operating when the door is open. The door switch is at fault when you press the door switch lever, and the dryer door is closed, but the drum dryer light remains on.

To complete the drying cycle, a dryer timer needs to advance. However, if the timer won’t advance, this can be due to a broken timer motor or cycling thermostat. Please refer above for an explanation of the cycling thermostat and the broken timer.

If your dryer is making unusual noises like squeaking, grinding, or thumping during operation, it might indicate issues with the drum support rollers, idler pulley, or belt. Our professionals specialize in identifying and resolving these noisy dryer problems to restore peace to your laundry room.

When your dryer drum refuses to spin, it could be due to a broken drive belt, faulty motor, or issues with the idler pulley. Our team excels in diagnosing and fixing these problems swiftly, ensuring your dryer resumes its normal spinning function.

Are your clothes taking longer than usual to dry? This issue could result from clogged vents, a malfunctioning heating element, or improper airflow. Our technicians can efficiently troubleshoot and resolve these problems, optimizing your dryer’s performance for quicker drying cycles.

Strange odors or burning smells coming from the dryer may signal lint buildup, electrical issues, or problems with the heating element. Our experts thoroughly inspect and address these concerns, ensuring your dryer operates safely without any unpleasant odors.

An overheating dryer or one that shuts off unexpectedly could indicate issues with the thermostat, thermal fuse, or blocked vents. Our skilled technicians can pinpoint the cause and offer solutions to prevent overheating and ensure safe dryer operation.
