Do you enjoy clean clothes? Is doing laundry one of the top things on your list of things to do every week or every other week? When we say we want clean laundry, don’t we want laundry that is clean and dry? After you wash your clothes in your washing machine they will be cleaned, but what happens when you put them in the dryer and they do not dry?

When your dryer fails or if you have to constantly run the dryer in order to get one load of clothes to dry, you will find your head spinning/ Thankfully, there are some warning signs that you can look for to tell if your dryer may be letting you know something is wrong. Sometimes, the fix can be as simple as changing the belt.

Your Dryer Is Not Saying Anything

If you place all your clothes into the dryer, add your fabric softener, close the door, and press the button to start it, and the dryer does not do anything, you have a problem. You try a couple of more times, but nothing works.

Your Dryer Is Annoying Everyone In The House

Does your dryer sound like someone is beating the drums? Does it make any other noises that do not sound normal? We understand that every appliance we purchase is going to make some sort of noise, but there are some appliances that start to make weird noises when there is a problem. If your dryer belt needs to be replaced, you will hear an unusual noise that can certainly get on your nerves. It is not uncommon for a dryer belt to start wearing out, especially if your dryer is being used regularly.

Start And Stop

This is different from the scenario above because you actually think the dryer is going to work. At some point, you realize your dryer stopped in the middle of the cycle. You press the start button, but nothing is happening. When your dryer started, your hopes were up and now you are left with clean clothes that are not dry enough.
