Your local tumble dryer engineer can repair all kinds of common dryer faults
Your experienced technician can handle all common tumble dryer malfunctions in a day’s work. Of course, he is also trained in identifying and fixing issues that would fly past a regular technician's radar. Below, you will find a few examples of what exactly he can help you with.
The tumble dryer won’t heat up
If your appliance fails to properly heat up or does not heat at all, then the engineer can help you and identify the heating element that needs replacing. For example, this malfunction may be caused by a faulty thermostat or a thermal overload cut-out (a heat-activated fuse inside the appliance).
The appliance is not spinning
This could mean one of three things – a problem with the dryer drive belt, a seized dryer drum, or a faulty motor or capacitor. The specialist will have a closer look at your appliance to determine which of these scenarios has occurred and will order a replacement part if needed.
The machine is not drying clothes properly
This may be caused by disrupted airflow. To repair your dryer, the specialist will examine your vented or condenser tumble dryer to identify the fault. For vented models, this is usually caused by a warped or kinked vent hose, and for condenser types – by excess fluff, covering the condenser itself.
The tumble dryer is making a loud noise
If your clothes dryer makes squeaking, screeching, scraping, or banging noise, the specialist will seek the problem in faulty bearings, faulty door seal or worn tension pulleys. A solution to the issue might be something as simple as levelling the machine on a flat surface. But if this is not the case, the tumble dryer fixer will replace the faulty part.
