If you’ve become used to the lovable convenience of in-home laundry, then you know how unpleasant being without that service for a while can feel like. That’s why it’s so important to keep your dryer in perfect shape through regular dryer repair and maintenance. It’s something you can easily and affordably do, provided you know what warning signs to look out for. Here are six of the top signals that your dryer is in need of repair.
The dryer isn’t turning on
A dryer that simply refuses to turn on is a clear sign that something is wrong. But before you run to buy a new one, try to do some troubleshooting. Check the machine’s settings and press the right buttons to find whether everything is correct. Is the start button pressed and turned to its right position to activate the appliance? If you are sure that you’ve done everything you should but the dryer won’t turn on, don’t panic just yet. Have a reputable technician come over and investigate what might be the matter.
Most dryers produce some sound while running. However, there are unusual sounds that should never be neglected. We’re talking excessive groaning, squealing, banging, squeaking, humming or even thumping. That could be a sign that some of the moving parts inside there are loose or worn out. Whatever the case, you need to act right away by having an expert look at your machine before things get worse.
Drying takes unusually long
As your dryer ages, its efficiency will begin to slow down. One of the things you may notice is that the appliance takes a bit longer to dry your clothes than you are used to. This may be a sign that you need to start thinking of investing in a new dryer. Having said that, not all dryer efficiency can be traced to aging. Sometimes, it’s a component of your dryer that’s compromised for one reason or another. The best way to know is to have a technician look at the appliance.
There’s a hot smell
If, while using your dryer you notice an unusual or hot smell coming from the dryer, you need to switch it off immediately and have it checked. Chances are there’s something seriously wrong, and by running your dryer in spite of the burning smell you’re risking a fire. It could be that there are problems with your ventilation system that are causing the dryer to run hot. Only a technician can tell for sure.
Clothes keep coming out hot
If every time you use your dryer you notice that clothes are hot once out of the machine, then it’s likely that your appliance isn’t ventilating as required. You may also realize that the appliance feels too hot to the touch. If you don’t have this problem fixed promptly, you’ll your power bills may start going up due to the wasted energy. Your clothes may also get ruined by the excessive heat. The worst case scenario, of course, is serious injury caused by burns.
While you may heavily depend on your dryer for your weekly laundry, it’s easy to forget about inspecting it regularly to ascertain whether it needs little repairs to keep serving you well. Of course, the first important thing you need is to learn what signs to watch out for so you can call a technician to come over to your home. As soon as you notice one or more of the signals discussed above, your best course of action is to have one of our professionals come over and take a look at your dryer.
