Your dryer is one of the most convenient appliances in your home. Most people don’t have time to hang their clothes before work in the morning, but a dryer can help to have their work clothes ready quickly. When your dryer breaks down it can cause quite the laundry pile up.
So, you throw a load of laundry in the dryer but when the timer goes off they are still damp. Luckily you don’t have to panic just yet. Fixing problems with your dryer can often be done at home.
If your dryer doesn’t properly dry clothes, here are two of the most common problems and how you can fix them:
The most common problem for your clothes still being damp at the end of a cycle is a clogged duct. Can you remember the last time you cleaned out your dryer’s vent pipe?
Fixing this problem is quite simple. You must unplug your dryer and move it so you can get to the vent. Remove the tube from the vent hole and vacuum up the lint that is stuck inside. If you are unable to get to the opening, you should call a professional service to clean your vents.
Your dryer vents should be cleaned every six months.
Another reason your dryer may not be working properly is because the heating element has worn out. They can naturally wear out after a lot of use, and when this happens the dryer will spin but not heat up.
You can find a replacement heating element at any local hardware store. Make sure the dryer is always unplugged before you replace the element. Remove the back panel to locate the heating element that needs to be replaced.
