Long Drying Times
One of the first signs that homeowners encounter ofttimes is that their dryer starts taking longer than usual to dry their clothes. If a part fails, you may find that your dryer takes twice as long as it is used to dry your clothes. This means that you will want your dryer to be professionally checked before it completely fails.
The Drum Won’t Spin
This is a problem that homeowners encounter with old dryers, which will lead them to wrongly believe that their dryer has terminated and needs to be replaced. However, a drum that doesn’t spin is often much easier to fix than people think, as it can usually be corrected by replacing the dryer belt, as faulty belts usually cause this problem. An expert technician will be able to determine what caused your dryer to stop spinning and will be able to ascertain if it can be repaired.
