Dryer Repair Guys and Dryer Repair Solutions
Dryer Repair Guys knows the first step when it comes to any type of appliance repair is to determine what exactly is causing the issue. Does the dryer start? Does it heat up and tumble? Are the clothes taking too long to try? The answers to these questions will help you target the source of the problem. Here are some easy troubleshooting steps:
Make sure the dryer is plugged in--Sure, it may seem like common sense, but dryer performance complaints that end by plugging the cord into the outlet are more common than you'd think.
Check for and replace any blown fuses--Depending on the age and model, your dryer can use a lot of power. This can lead to blown fuses and tripped circuits, especially in homes with older electrical systems. It should be relatively easy to replace the fuse or reset the breaker, but if the issue repeats itself, you should contact a professional electrician.
Clean the lint trap--If your clothes are taking a long time to dry, a full lint trap may be the culprit. If the lint trap is full, air can not circulate properly in the dryer, and the machine is forced to work longer than necessary to dry your clothes. A clogged lint filter can also cause the dryer to overheat, putting your appliance at risk for a fire. To avoid potential hazards and keep your dryer working at optimal levels, it is important to clean the lint filter immediately following each load.

Check the dryer hose and exhaust vent--If your lint trap is clean, and the clothes are still taking a long time to dry, you may need to clean the dryer hose and exhaust vent. Over time, lint can accumulate, blocking the hose or preventing the exhaust trap from opening. You can use a vacuum and/or a long-handled bristle brush to clean out any excess lint buildup.
