8 Signs Your Dryer Needs An Appliance Repair Technician


  1. Clothes are not drying properly - If your clothes are taking longer than usual to dry or are still damp after a full cycle, this could be a sign that your dryer is not functioning properly. This could be due to a clogged vent, faulty heating element, or malfunctioning thermostat.

  2. Strange noises - If you hear unusual noises coming from your dryer, such as banging, squeaking, or grinding sounds, this could be a sign that something is wrong. This could be due to a worn belt, loose drum rollers, or a damaged blower wheel.

  3. Burning smells - If you smell a burning odor coming from your dryer, this could be a sign of a serious issue. This could be due to a faulty heating element, damaged electrical wiring, or a clogged lint trap.

  4. Overheating - If your dryer feels hotter than usual or shuts off unexpectedly, this could be a sign of overheating. This could be due to a faulty thermostat or heating element, or a clogged vent.

  5. Won't start - If your dryer won't start at all, this could be a sign of a power issue. This could be due to a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker, faulty door switch, or damaged power cord.

  6. Drum not turning - If the drum in your dryer is not turning, this could be a sign of a problem with the belt, motor, or drum rollers.

  7. Excessive vibration - If your dryer is vibrating excessively or shaking during operation, this could be a sign of a problem with the drum rollers, motor, or blower wheel.

  8. Lint buildup - If you notice an excessive buildup of lint in your dryer, this could be a sign that the lint trap or vent is clogged. This can cause the dryer to overheat and increase the risk of a fire.
