This list of common dryer problems can help you troubleshoot and find the reason your dryer isn’t working as it should. Of course, there may be other issues, but these are the most common problems. Some are simple fixes that won’t even require a screw driver and other solutions may fall outside of your comfort level and you may choose to hire a professional to do the work.
However, with some advice, you can fix your dryer!
Whatever you decide, always put safety first and remove the power source to the dryer before troubleshooting or attempting repairs.
For many of the problems you could be facing, finding a solution may require the use of a Volt-Ohm (VOM) reader, which can be picked up at most hardware stores. Access to most or all crucial parts will require removing various parts of the dryer, so be sure to keep track of which screws go where so when it’s time to button everything up, you know what to do. And finally, as always, try to rule out the problems that are easiest to deal with, such as the dryer being too hot, before conducting extensive repairs.
If you need to purchase new parts, be sure to know the manufacturer and model number of your dryer. Although some parts may be universal.
