Tips for Homeowners on Repairing Their Clothes Dryer 

In the United States, demand for dryer services is largely driven by the need to use dryers. To efficiently dry clothes and other fabrics is the sole purpose of a clothes dryer. Dryers are also used to dry delicate fabrics, as well as to fluff and remove wrinkles that can form during the laundering process. The demand for dryer services is typically highest in the summer due to the need to dry wet swimwear and towels. 

A clothes dryer is an important appliance in a household and should be properly cared for and maintained. Unfortunately, things can go wrong and it will need to be repaired. Depending on the problem, a number of different items may need to be repaired.  The first item to check when troubleshooting your dryer is the power source. Make sure that the plug is firmly in the wall and that the circuit breaker has not tripped.

When repairing a clothes dryer, there are various parts and components that must be repaired or replaced. While most repairs can be done by a qualified technician, some basic repairs can be done by those with more experience. While replacing certain parts can be a challenge, there are some tips that can help:

Check the Thermostat

A malfunctioning thermostat can be one of the strongest indicators that your dryer isn’t working properly. It's important to start by checking the thermostat and ensuring it has the correct settings and is in proper working order. 

Lint Trap Cleaning

Clean the Lint Trap: It is essential to regularly clean your lint trap. Failure to do so can result in a fire hazard due to lint buildup in the dryer. It will also slow the drying process and cost you more money in electric or gas depending upon which type of dryer you own.

Check the Owner's Manual 

The first step for any homeowner attempting to repair their clothes dryer is to consult the Owner's Manual. This manual can provide the homeowner with additional information regarding specific parts that need to be replaced or adjusted. It can also provide troubleshooting advice, such as what to do if the dryer is not heating, or if there is a noise coming from the Machine.

Dryer Vent Line Cleaning

Check the Dryer Vent – One of the most common causes of dryer malfunction is a clogged or blocked dryer vent line, located behind the machine. To check this line there is usually a clip that you can squeeze to loosen the hose and you can then check the hole and outlet for clogging or debris.  Just vacuum the line out or if you have a compressor, just blow the line out.  Make sure you do this in an open area, like outside because it could be a dirty project.
