Clothes Dryer Troubleshooting

Whether you have a gas dryer or an electric dryer there are many things that can go wrong with your unit. The following are some tips to keep your dryer working at full capacity.

Dryer Fundamentals

First check the simplest solutions. Is it plugged in? Do you have a defective cord? Has the unit’s fuse blown or has the circuit breaker tripped?

Clean the lint trap. Use a vacuum or a piece of wire to remove any lint from the exhaust duct.

If the load seems too wet to begin with, put it through your washer’s spin cycle one more time.
