If your dryer is broken and you think that there is no sense to spend your money on its repair because it is too old, we will replace it, but in case of any doubts , please, call us and we will go to check it to prepare an estimate, so you will know how much the repair would cost and to decide if it worth doing it or not.
Probably the resistance is burned, so call us and we will check it, although this is usually the most common problem. Another typical breakdown of dryers is that the belt breaks due to wear or overload the machine with clothing as the consequence is that the drum stops turning.
So to avoid problems the best is not to overload the clothes dryers and to avoid putting too wet clothing. In all instruction manuals the maximum weight is indicated, but obviously we won´t put a bucket of wet clothes over the scales before putting them in the dryer, there is a trick that can help you not to overload the dryer, leaving at least the width of a hand between the top of the dryer and clothing.
If you fill the dryer totally full to save on electricity it will cost you more expensive if the drum breaks. For saving reasons the best thing to do is to accumulate a lot of clothes and to put them in the dryer, one load after another, so you will use in the first load generated heat for the next one.
Another recommendation is to clean the filter frequently if possible before each drying as often hairs and lint remain are stuck to the clothing. If the filter is very dirty it can cause the overheat of the resistance and as a result the thermal switch goes off when the dryer reaches a higher than desirable temperature. The solution would be to remove the unit and replace the resistors. If you want to avoid complications, please, contact us and we’ll take care of everything.
And finally we must check that the exhaust pipe to ensure it is not blocked or full of lint and works properly. That’s why it is convenient to leave at least a minimum distance between the machine and the wall.
