There’s nothing worse than doing a load of laundry, taking your fresh clothes out of the dryer, and discovering your items are all still cold and damp. What gives?
Unfortunately, this is a common symptom of a dryer that’s not heating properly. The good news, however, is that this can be a pretty straightforward repair. Whether you’re an avid DIY-er around the house or you prefer to delegate to an appliance repair technician, it should only take less than an hour to fix.
If you decide to poke around and troubleshoot your dryer yourself, you’ll need to know where to look. Your dryer’s heat problem will most likely be rooted in one of the following components:
- Temperature switch
- Electric heating element
- Gas igniter
- Radiant sensor
- Gas control valve
However, we strongly suggest thinking twice about performing your own dryer repair if you’ve never done it before. Dryers are complex machines with lots of small parts and circuitry. When handled improperly, some serious damage, including electrical shock, could result. And if you have a gas unit, the potential hazards are even more severe.
In other words, if you have any hesitation or doubt regarding your ability to repair this issue yourself, don’t risk it. Instead, call your local appliance repair professionals at Morris County Appliance Repair. We’ll troubleshoot, diagnose, and repair your dryer’s heat problem with total safety and efficiency.
