dryer common problems

We diagnosed a Samsung dryer that was not heating. Cleaning revealed excessive lint accumulation. Testing confirmed the heater had continuity, and the relay initially supplied 240 volts, but it would shut off after a second. A slight heat odor was noted, yet insufficient for effective operation, indicating an issue with maintaining consistent power supply to the heater.

Samsung Dryer Not Heating Properly

The Amana dryer was experiencing heating issues, with clothes remaining damp post-cycle. Upon diagnosis, I found a faulty heating element and a clogged lint filter restricting airflow. I replaced the heating element and thoroughly cleaned the lint filter and exhaust vent. This repair restored proper heat flow and functionality to the dryer, ensuring efficient drying performance.

The dryer was malfunctioning due to a blown hi-limit fuse, discovered during troubleshooting. I replaced the faulty hi-limit fuse and conducted tests to ensure the dryer operated correctly. The replacement and subsequent testing confirmed the dryer's functionality, resolving the issue and restoring safe and efficient operation.

Dryer Hi-Limit Fuse Replacement

The Samsung dryer was not heating, resulting in clothes not drying properly. The problem was traced to a common issue with the heating element in these models. Although the fix for replacing the faulty heating element is straightforward, it requires a considerable amount of time to complete. The repair process involves accessing and replacing the compromised heating element to restore the dryer's functionality.

Samsung Dryer Not Heating and Failing to Dry Clothes

A GE dryer was reported to take an unusually long time to dry clothes. It was heating and spinning correctly, leading to an inspection of the ventilation system. The vent was discovered to be clogged, which hindered the dryer's efficiency. After clearing the vent, the dryer's performance improved significantly, resolving the issue of extended drying times and ensuring optimal operation.

 

The dryer would not run because the start knob wouldn't fully engage, suggesting a switch problem. Additionally, the oven was not heating. Both issues point to malfunctioning control mechanisms that require inspection and repair to restore full functionality to the appliances.

 

During troubleshooting of a dryer with a non-functioning interior light, we discovered a loose connection in the light socket harness. We secured the connection and conducted tests, which confirmed the light is now functioning correctly. This repair ensures the interior light operates properly, enhancing visibility inside the dryer.

Upon inspection of a dryer reported to be emitting sparks from the back, we identified that the terminal box where the power cord connects had shorted out. This issue was causing the sparks. The customer was informed of the necessary repair, but they declined to proceed with the replacement. The unit remains in its current state, and the fault persists.

Repairing a Dryer That

Isn’t Drying

Your dryer has one job: provide enough heat to dry your clothes. When it no longer does this efficiently, you end up tumbling clothes for hours trying to get moisture out.

There are a variety of things that can cause your dryer to not heat properly. It may be the heating element itself. Other possible culprits are the components which measure the heat of the dryer. Their purpose is to cut off heat before overheating, but damaged sensors can cause it to shut off too soon or never turn on at all.

If your clothes aren’t getting adequately dry, let us get things back on track quickly with our affordable dryer repair service.

Troubleshooting At Home
There are things to do at home before calling us. Even if your Samsung or LG dryer is producing some heat, but not enough heat, clean both the lint trap on the machine and the outside vent of your house. Both are needed to be clear to provide the ventilation necessary for proper drying. Also, make sure there are no kinks in the dryer vent exhaust pipe. Our dryer vent cleaning service can help with wet clothes in the dryer.

For additional ventilation, make sure the machine is pulled several inches away from the wall. If you’re still having potential ventilation problems, leave the laundry room door open when the dryer is run.

These small things can save you a lot of aggravation. But if the dryer is truly in need of repair, you can be confident we’ll have your back.

Warranty Repairs
Is your dryer still under warranty? We can provide certified warranty service for most brands, meaning it won’t cost you a thing. Not under warranty? Check out how affordable we can make dryer repair. Also, we guarantee all customer-purchased parts and labor with a one year warranty, regardless of the machine’s age. That’s because we want you to be 100% satisfied in our service.
