Dryer Expert Tips: Do It Yourself Troubleshooting
1 Confirm the door is tightly closed, opening and closing it again to be sure.
2 Confirm the dryer is well-supplied with electricity or gas. If other appliances don’t start after you turn them on, reset the circuit breaker or check the gas supply.
3 Inspect the fuse and replace it if blown.
4 Ensure the dryer is connected to the outlet and plug it in if necessary.
1 Inspect the thermal fuse connection and ensure this part isn’t out of order due to overheating.
2 Check if the igniter is sparking. If it is not, it means the igniter is broken or burned out, and it can’t heat up. Thus, the radiant sensor can’t trigger the gas valve coils, and heat isn’t generated.
3 Ensure the heating elements aren’t burned out. Test the gas valve coils if you are the owner of a gas dryer. Test the heater element if you possess an electric dryer.
1 Check the drying cycle you selected. Change it to one that generates warm air for faster drying.
2 If you choose an Air Dry or Air Fluff option, the drying process can be a little longer. Ensure the exhaust vent, located outside, isn’t clogged.
3 Ensure the vent hose is not damaged. If you need to replace it, use a metal hose, not foil or vinyl.
4 Make sure the length and positioning of the vent hose meet recommended standards. It should be up to 25 feet if it is straight, and up to 20 feet if it turns at a 90-degree angle. The shorter length of the vent hose with an angle is due to the airflow restriction it imposes. In short, exceeding the recommended length results in increased drying time.
5 If you have a gas dryer, be sure it is well-supplied with gas. To check this, you can turn on another appliance that works on gas:
6 There should be a flame on gas ranges.
7 The pilot light of the water heater should be on.
8 On a gas furnace, the heat should be easily produced when you set it to 80°.
1 If you hear clicking sounds from your gas dryer, there is no problem at all. Such sounds are ordinary signs of switching the gas valve on and off.
2 Inspect pockets of the clothes you are drying and remove any coins or other items.
3 Inspect the drum base to find and remove all loose items.
4 Check if the dryer is level and stays on the floor with all four feet. Adjust the feet if necessary, as the noise can come from the dryer shaking while operating.

Our services for your dryer
The dryer operation process can be described as follows. There is a tumbler, a revolving drum, in a dryer. When it spins, it gets heated air circulated and dampness evaporated. As a result, the laundry gets dry, and the air gets humid. Here the venting system steps in to extract this air to the outside. The dry air fills the remaining space in the dryer and enables an increase in drying efficiency.
When any detail of this system is out of order or the venting system is clogged, the drying process stops or becomes less efficient. Your home becomes saturated with extra humidity that can harm it. Our tech can relieve you from such problems by repairing your laundry room appliance or through vent cleaning.
We Can Work With:
A gas dryer
The up-front investment in a gas dryer is rather high, and you need to install the venting system. However, operating on LPG or natural gas is more cost-effective in the long run.
An electric dryer
It is cheaper when you purchase and install it, and it is easier to install. It works perfectly with an ordinary steam venting system. However, its total cost of ownership is higher.
Our techs know everything about both types of dryer. This enables them to get to the cause of the issue quickly and solve the problem efficiently. So, you can count on Good Repairman when you have any troubles with your dryer.

The dryer fails to start
If the dryer fails to start, make sure it is plugged into the outlet and there is no power supply problem with the outlet. The cause of this malfunction can also be a faulty switch, terminal block, or thermostat.
The dryer doesn’t heat
If a tumbler is rotated, but the circulated air stays cold, there could be a problem with a temperature switch, heating coils, or a fuse.
The dryer isn’t spinning
The lack of rotation when the motor is functioning properly may be due to a damaged belt, bad idler, or bad roller. A bad motor may also be to blame.
The temperature of the dryer is very high
This situation is very dangerous and must be fixed immediately. It may happen due to a thermostat malfunction, heating coil failure, as well as when there is a blockage in the vent.
Any dryer problem can lead to its total failure, increasing your energy bills as well as threatening your safety. To prevent this, it is highly recommended to provide your dryer with regular and thorough maintenance.
