Common Dryer Repair Issues

Dryers are simple machines, but they do have a lot of parts. In our experience, we have repaired many dryer issues, including:
  • The dryer won’t turn on
  • The dryer won’t start running
  • The dryer takes longer than usual
  • The dryer makes a lot of noise
  • The dryer drum won’t spin
  • The dryer isn’t heating up
  • Error code on the front panel
  • The dryer won’t stop
  • The dryer smells like burning

We can also help you if your dryer is too hot. When your dryer overheats, it can damage your laundry, your hands, and other parts of your dryer, or even cause a fire. Some of the most common causes of overheating are:

  • Trapped dust and dirt
  • Restricted airflow
  • Issues with the heating element
  • Issues with the cycling thermostat
Or, you may have the opposite problem where your dryer isn’t heating up at all. When this happens, it could be one of the causes above having the opposite effect. There are many ways to resolve this issue, and we can help you find the root cause.
If you are having dryer issues, you should conduct a thorough check of your drying and stop using it. For example, try cleaning the dirt and debris from the dryer. Then, let it rest for a while and see if it returns to normal the next day. Inspect the dryer outlet and nearby areas for any other potential causes.

Calling a dryer repairman removes the guesswork from this process and can restore your peace of mind. If any of these examples describe your situation, contact us today.

Common Dryer Related Questions We Hear

Like other homeowners, you probably have a lot of questions about your appliances, repair methods, and more. Here are some of the questions we hear every day and the answers we provide to our customers.

We charge $75 for a service call, which is waived in case of repairs. Repair costs depend on the parts involved and the workhours needed to fix the issue.

If your appliance is still under warranty, they will usually repair or replace it with minimal to no cost. However, some issues don’t fall under warranty. Contact the appliance’s manufacturer for more information.

Most new appliances have a unique smell due to residues from the manufacturing process. It should go away on its own relatively shortly with regular use.

Appliances that come into contact or use water to operate can develop mould or mildew if they are not vented or emptied properly. Regular maintenance should keep humidity low enough to deter mould growth. Ideal Fix can troubleshoot the exact cause of the smell, fix it, and provide guidelines to prevent it from reoccurring.

Consider how much a repair is going to cost versus buying a brand-new appliance. When purchasing an appliance, you will get a warranty that protects from breaks or mishaps for a certain period, which can save money on repair costs. Additionally, new appliances generally use less electricity or water to run and are more environmentally friendly.

When buying a dryer, pay special attention to its size, capacity, and energy efficiency. Additionally, if you’re fitting the dryer between cabinets or other appliances, consider that you need at least an inch of space on all sides and six inches in the back to allow for air circulation, connections, and venting. Ideally, a dryer should have the same or double the capacity of the washing machine.

When the dryer isn’t levelled properly, it won’t dry clothes as fast, and some bulkier pieces can remain wet after a cycle. Additionally, the dryer will make more noise since it will bounce due to the uneven surface.

Most dryers can finish a full cycle in between 45-60 minutes, depending on the load size and power. Check the venting system and the lint trap if the clothes are damp after a cycle.

Beyond replacing old parts or the entire model with a more energy-efficient one, you can keep the dryer clean and the venting system maintained. Most of the energy losses come from inadequate venting and keeping the dryer working in a humid environment.

Our appliance repair experts expect a washer and dryer to last 10-15 years, on average. Machine life expectancy coincides with how often you use the washer and how well you maintain them.

It depends on the appliance malfunction. If the dryer makes strange noises or won’t heat during its cycle, it means the problem is more extensive than it appears. In these cases, your dryer will require a professional appliance repair expert who can inspect and fix the damage.

Proper dryer maintenance goes a long way towards reducing the wear and tear of your appliance. Repairing can extend your dryer’s life and allow you to use it for a few more years.
