Dryer Repair Service by ASAP Appliance Repair Service

Indeed dryers are one of the highest maintenance appliance we have in our homes.  For this reason it’s extremely important to perform routine maintenance to our dryers.  Ultimately failing to maintain our dryer results in higher utility bills and will shorten its lifespan.  Which will inevitably lead to needing dryer repair service at younger age than expected.  Notably dryers can be one of the most inefficient appliances in our homes.  However if you have regular check ups on your dryer.  Then this will ensure your dryer is running efficiently.  In particular we want to be sure our dryer is safe to operate.  Surprisingly most homeowners have no idea they should have their dryer cabinet cleaned.  Therefore the dryer is at a higher risk of not only causing a fire.  But also more likely to develop a problem.  Furthermore most homeowners fail to clean the dryer exhaust regularly.  As a result the dryer will develop heavy lint build up in the exhaust.  In addition to that it is common for a customer to run their dryer even when it is making an unusual noise.  Again this will only lead to more problems.  One thing is for sure if we don’t address these issues immediately our dryers not only become unsafe to use.  In the long run they will repairs that are definitely avoidable.  With this in mind it’s good to know what we can do to prevent our dryers from becoming dangerous to us.  At the same time turning in to a money pit.


Clothes Drying Slow, Check the Air Flow

Of course there are some things we can do to prevent dryer repair.  Firstly make sure you’re cleaning the lint filter regularly. Always clean filter before or after every cycle. Failing to clean lint filter before running your dryer will cause air flow restrictions and eventually clog your dryer’s exhaust.  Secondly, be sure your dryer has proper airflow.  If you can’t see the flaps on the exhaust opening when the dryer is running your exhaust may already be blocked.  Therefore it’s time to have dryer exhaust cleaning done. Failing to clean and service your dryer exhaust will lead to more repairs to your dryer.  As a result this increases the chances of causing a fire.  Subsequently you should never run your dryer when you aren’t home or while you are sleeping.  Keeping up with your laundry isn’t worth causing a house fire.

Cleaning your Dryer Will Prevent a Fire

,Granted dryers are designed with several features to recognize when the exhaust is clogged or air isn’t flowing properly.  Certainly these components aren’t full proof.  In fact dryers are the top reason for house fires.  But why is that?  With this in mind most we need to have our dyers serviced regularly.  Therefore ASAP Appliance Repair recommends to have your dryer inspected at least every 2-3 years.  As a result of dryers producing lint they are not only prone to building up lint in the exhaust.  But lint will also accumulate in the dryer cabinet.  For this reason lint becomes more likely to catch fire.  In conclusion, if you’re not sure when the last time your dryer was checked you should call ASAP to schedule an appointment.

Dryer’s Aren’t Usuable if it Sounds Unusual

Similarly to a dryer having airflow issues, homeowners tend to ignore unusual noise from their dryer in hopes that the noise will just go away on its own.  As a result of the dryer still running, customers tend to wait on servicing their dryer since it is just a little noisy.  Consequently this may cause additional problems and may cost more money in the long run.  If there is an abnormal noise coming from your dryer you should stop using the dyer immediately.  In other words if you continue to use the dryer in this condition you may cause damage beyond repair.  Overall calling for service on a noisy dryer will ultimately save you time and money in the long run.

Clogged Exhaust Vent Got you Bent

By and large cleaning your dryer exhaust is the absolute best way to prevent your dryer from breaking down.  In fact if you aren’t cleaning your exhaust you are basically throwing money to the wind.  That is to say you are increasing your gas or electric utilities enormously.  Whenever a dryer exhaust blocks it will cause the heating components to stress.  Thus causing these components to fail more often.  In addition to that the dryer will cycle the heat more often causing the dryer to run for longer.  As a result, your dyer will require more energy to get a single load done.  Check out our dryer maintenance section for more information for additional dryer maintenance.

Uh Oh! Fabric Softener Sheets Are a No Go

Th statement sounds crazy, we know.  However, that statement is very true.  Nowadays manufactures advise against fabric softener sheets being ran in your dryer.  Because dryers are being built to run more energy efficient, they now have more sensors than in the past.  Specifically all dryers now have moisture sensors and thermistors.  Given that these components are attempting to sense the moisture in the clothes and in the exhaust system.  The use of fabric softener sheets coats these components preventing them form sensing the moisture in the clothes and exhaust.  Therefore when running an auto dry or sensor dry cycles the dryer seems to be advancing off to quickly.  But if you love your fabric softener sheets and insist on using them.  Then you have a couple options.  Simply switch to the manual dry or timed dry cycles.  These cycles eliminate the use of the moisture sensors.  In turn allowing the dryer to heat within an adequate amount of time.  Finally you can also use static balls in place of fabric softener sheets.
