Dryer malfunctions are caused by improper maintenance. Factory defects are quite rare. But even if the machine is super reliable, it will eventually need maintenance or repair. One of the most common problems is Dryer Stopped Heating.
A dryer that does not heat up is a common problem. There are several possible causes. The most important tip that can prevent this problem is to plug the dryer directly into the outlet, that, without an extension cord. After all, this is also part of the manufacturers’ basic recommendations. If there is nothing wrong with the wiring in this regard, look at other things. Causes of the dryer not heating may be:
- A damaged cord.
- A clogged vent – the dryer needs air to work, if it’s not there, it will stop working.
- Clogged filter – The lint filter should be cleaned after each drying cycle. Wiping it with a wet towel is usually enough. For coarse debris, we recommend washing the filter under running water.
- Thermal Fuse Failure
The Dryer Gets Too Hot
However, the opposite situation can also occur. Are you pulling the laundry out of the dryer too hot or has it even become small? Then the thermostat is probably the problem and needs to be replaced. If you think the dryer is working properly, but the laundry is only shrinking, try changing the drying program.
Your Clothes Are Coming Out Of The Dryer Full Of Wrinkles
Properly dried laundry should come out of the dryer without any wrinkles, in most cases, ready to be put in the closet. If it doesn’t, something is wrong. More often than not, the cause is the wrong program.
It could also be the wrong way to remove the dried laundry from the dryer. To avoid ironing, take the laundry out of the dryer while it’s still warm and don’t leave it in the dryer for too long. When you take the laundry out, simply shake it up and fold it.
Using a fabric softener also affects the quality of the dried laundry. This can be a liquid fabric softener or the increasingly popular balls of various materials that perfectly fluff up the laundry and speed up drying. They can be used repeatedly.
Before drying, sort the laundry by color and material and choose an appropriate drying program. Also, don’t overfill the dryer. Remember that not all items can be dried in a dryer. You will find all the information you need on the inner labels of your clothes.
Your Dryer Is Leaking Water
With dryers without a direct drain connection, the condensate container can sometimes overflow. The solution is simple – just pour the water out of the container, where it accumulates, after each drying. An un-drained container for condensation can also start to smell after a while, and you can tell by the smell on your clothes.
