You want to dry those clothes you’ve just washed but your Dryer won’t turn on. What an absolute nightmare. Maybe the weather is bad and you can’t hang them up to dry outside or your radiators won’t heat fast enough.
There are however a few options you can try yourself before you get your wallet out and to pay for a repairman or even a new dryer. We have a few solutions for you to try out yourself below.
There’s a whole host of reasons a Dryer won’t turn on, don’t start stressing just yet. Here are some common issues and their relatively straightforward fixes.
Try and start your dryer, when you start your dryer you should hear a humming sound, if you hear this humming sound then you know that your start switch is definitely not to blame.
If you do not hear this hum when starting your dryer then you need a continuity meter to test electrical output, if there is no output you need to replace your start switch.
When you shut the door to your dryer you should hear a clicking sound. If it clicks it means the door is activating and registering as closed, therefore that isn’t your problem.
If you are shutting your dryer door and there is no click then this registration that we mentioned isn’t there. Your solution to this is to either replace the door switch or the door itself entirely.
