Driers may need a repair when there are malfunctions resulting from misuse, improper maintenance, or normal aging. There are a number of issues, which users can solve without using professional help.
Before calling a technician or transporting a device to a service, it is advisable to do a few simple things. The website contains troubleshooting information for all famous drier brands. A troubleshooting table with symptoms and solutions will help you make your drier operational again.
If there is an issue, an error code will appear on the display screen, by which you can tell what exactly has broken down or not working properly. The tables contain symbols denoting error codes for your model, so you can decide whether you want to clear an error yourself or call a technician. Error code tables posted on the website will help you figure out and deal with the problem.
Use your drier properly!
To avoid repair costs, please, do not overload your device, provide effective ventilation and clean filters regularly. This will keep your device functional and free from major breakdowns for years.
If you have a condenser dryer, please, drain the condenser of condensate regularly. Once it is filled to capacity, the drying process stops. Also, you should clean the filter regularly, because it is a must for optimal operation. If you fail to do that, it will take longer for your dryer to do its job, and you will end up with higher electricity bills. Finally, this can lead to overheating and even fire.
Clogs and blockages are the most common issues. Immediate repair is required if your device is not heating up, there is water under it and/or there is an unusual noise.
Improper maintenance can easily lead to a breakdown. Overheating is a common problem: before loading it, please, check your items’ weight and drying cycle type.
It is imperative that you follow the maintenance rules set by the manufacturer. Do not load it with too small and poorly wrung items. Do not load heavyweight items in the drum. For better cleaning, use modes developed by the manufacturer for each type of linen.
Hi! I’m Sam Brooks, and I’m glad to see you on my website where I share things I know about washing machine and dryer repair. I’m a professional appliance repair technician. I’m 42, and I have spent the last 15 years working mostly with washing machines and dryers. Most of my clients come from Saint Paul, Minnesota, where I have lived since I moved here with my parents at the age of 14.
My interest in machines and appliances is much older than my professional experience, though. I suppose I got it from my father. I remember those long weekends he spent working in his garage, which was not a real garage but more of a workshop (or even an alchemist’s laboratory to me). He did not have a formal engineering education but I think the projects he carried out in his garage workshop were more like engineering projects.
In spite of my early interest in this sphere, it was only in my late twenties that I considered a career of a repair technician. I joined a company providing appliance repair services. My employer developed a short training course, which I passed before starting to work as an apprentice under the supervision of an experienced tech.
Later, I continued my training with the help of training seminars offered by appliance manufacturers and other resources.
This website is a place where I have gathered a lot of information about washing machine and dryer repair. This includes a variety of things from error codes and troubleshooting guides to the more detailed articles I post on my blog.
