Are Your Clothes Drying?
Do you have to constantly put your clothes back into the dryer because the were not dry the first time around? If you keep restarting the dryer, then you may have a heating element that has gone bad. Check your lint trap to inspect for dirt, debris, and lent.
If you notice any lint in your dryer, then your heating element can be working harder than ever just to dry your clothes. If your heating element can not vent, your dryer can be severely damaged.
Generally, you will likely be able to smell something when your dryer is on. However if the smell is too hot, your dryer may not be ventilating the way it should be. If you know how, you should check your dryer hose. Going back to the lint, if there is lint trapped this could also be the problem.
If you have gone through various steps on your own to troubleshoot these issues, but you have not had any luck, you should stop using your dryer until someone can inspect it. If your dryer continues to run hot, the chances of a fire occurring increases.
The best way to get your dryer working is to call an appliance repair technician when you notice a problem. For help or more information, contact us at Fred’s Appliance.
