Household appliances are simply indispensable helpers. Dryers are becoming increasingly popular. Today the market already offers dozens of models of dryers from world famous brands: Bosch, Whirlpool, Electrolux. They work in tandem with washing machines, thoroughly drying laundry after washing by using different modes of operation. Thus, the gentle care of any item of clothing is provided.

In today’s article, we’ll look at the most common dryer breakdowns. We will determine what breaks most often in electronic dryers, what causes malfunctions.

Chula Vista Appliance Repair Company Experts identify several factors that can cause a dryer to fail:

  • Improper rules of maintenance.

There is a whole complex of aspects worth to note. Firstly, people often overload the machine with clothes. In the characteristics of dryers, the maximum load for cotton clothes is always indicated, for example jeans, wool, synthetics weigh more, that is why the loading limit should be reduced by 2-3 kg. If you do not take this nuance into account, you will systematically overload the motor, due to which drive belt or drum rollers will fail. Also in the dryers cannot be placed too wet things. They are heavier (and here we come back to the first point); in addition, the machine will dry such things for too long, and this is fraught with overheating of the motor, the heating element or even the drum.

  • A careless operation.

This point is very similar to the previous one, but has its own subtleties. In this case we are talking about sudden slamming of the door (the latching mechanism may break), strong pressure on the buttons because the sensor or the gasket of the physical button may fail. It is also extremely important to be careful when putting clothes into the drum. If you throw everything in at once, your closet items may get tangle. If a lump forms in the drum, the load will be uneven. This will cause imbalance and rapid wear of the belt as well as the rollers.

  • Poor maintenance.

Any (even the most expensive) dryer requires periodic maintenance. In condenser models, it is necessary to clean the moisture collection container. It is also necessary to periodically clean the lint filter. If the design includes an outlet hose, it should also be periodically disconnected and flushed. Otherwise, your machine will be clogged with structural elements, which will cause malfunctions.

  • Natural wear and tear.

This usually affects the outlet elements of the dryer: the drain or condensate drain hose, the pump to evacuate moisture. Also, over time, some parts of the motor may fail.

  • Factory defect.

No one is immune from this reason. The machine can be delivered to you with all sorts of defects: the door closes badly, one of the sensors does not work, one or more controls do not respond to commands. In order to avoid such troubles, it is better to buy quality models from reputable manufacturers. In addition, when buying, you should be given a warranty.
