Common dryer issues
Let’s start with some DIY troubleshooting. A circuit breaker may have switched off – dryers need two circuit breakers, one to turn the drum, and the other for heat. You may have too much lint in the lint trap, or the dryer vent may be clogged with lint. Your dryer might be in eco/cool mode.
Check all of the above. If these aren’t the issues, it’s almost certainly a faulty component: the heating element, thermal fuse, thermostat, or timer motor may all be defective. You may also have more complicated electrical problems. Call Napoleon Appliances – our expert technicians will find and fix the problem.
Try unplugging your dryer and plugging it back in. Check the circuit breaker. Make sure you don’t overload your dryer – if the door won’t close, the door switch can’t be flipped, and the dryer won’t turn on.
If those suggestions don’t improve things, it could be one of many faulty components. The start switch could be faulty, the timer could be broken, the thermal fuse could be blown, the drive belt could be too worn – the list goes on and on. Give us a call. We’ll find the problem and get it fixed.
There are a few reasons your dryer could be vibrating. It might be overloaded with clothes. It may also be on an uneven surface, which you can fix with wood shims if your dryer doesn’t have levelling feet.
We can help with levelling your dryer if it has levelling feet. As well, we can repair the many other issues that can cause excessive vibration. Worn rollers? Congested blower wheels? Frayed drive belt? Foreign objects caught in the machinery? A quick call to Napoleon Appliances will fix any and all of these causes of excess vibration.
The first thing to check is your dryer vent – if it’s clogged with lint, the heat from the dryer has nowhere to escape to. You can get your dryer vent cleaned professionally, or do it yourself.
If cleaning the vent doesn’t cool things off, give us a call. Your heating element may be warped, or your thermostat may be malfunctioning. We can fix both of these problems – our technicians have the parts needed for all major brands (and a few minor brands, too!).
Check out what we have to say about vibrating dryers above if vibrations are your concern – the suggestions there apply to all kinds of noises. And if it’s metallic clanging – well, you’ve probably got coins flying around in the dryer!
When troubleshooting doesn’t fix the problem, call Napoleon Appliances. There’s no end to the list of internal component faults that can cause strange noises – we’ll investigate the sounds, diagnose the problem, and fix or replace the faulty parts.
Check that your dryer is plugged in, and that both breakers are on. If that doesn’t do it, give us a call. You could have a broken drive belt, worn drums rollers, glides, bearings, or even worn roller axles. We can fix all of those problems for you.
Try the tips we talked about in the “Dryer won’t heat up” section. You might also have your dryer set to Timed Dry – use Auto Dry instead. You could also be overloading the dryer – if you’re struggling to fit more clothes in there, you’re overloaded.
If following the above tips doesn’t do the trick, call Napoleon. We’ll find the source of the problem and get it fixed – we have the parts and expertise you need.
