Are your clothes still damp at the end of the cycle or dryer not heating? How about a loud rumbling noise while the dryer is operating? Any number of issues can arise with your dryer, and until you get it repaired, there's no end to the inconvenience and frustration that a malfunctioning dryer causes.
If your dryer is taking a long time to dry, you may want to first check the venting from your dryer leading to outside to make sure it is clear. A clogged dryer vent system will lead to longer than usual dry times and it may also pose a fire risk. If you're not comfortable cleaning the vent of your dryer, then leave it to the pros.
Fortunately, St. Paul Appliance Rescue is available to solve all of your dryer problems. Whether it's a clogged vent system, broken heating element or another failed component, we’re ready to identify and solve your dryer problems today!
DRYER LINT SCREEN CLEANING TO MAINTAIN PROPER AIR FLOW
Making sure that your dryer’s lint screen and lint screen filter assembly is clean after every load is one of the easiest ways to make sure your dryer runs efficiency. This is especially true for dryers designed with the lint screen on the front panel as shown in the picture above. A dryer lint brush is a very useful tool to own and when used regularly, it will help prevent problems by eliminating lint that accumulates in the lint screen assembly. All appliance part stores carry this brush as well as many local hardware stores.
IS YOUR CLOTHING STILL DAMP AT THE END OF THE CYCLE?
We often take our modern appliances for granted and the dryer is no exception. It is awfully convenient to just transfer the clothes from the washer to the dryer and forget about until the dryer buzzes when the clothes are dry. But as anyone who's ever had a dryer malfunction will tell you, it can quickly wreak havoc on one's life.
The most important maintenance for any dryer is a clear exhaust. The shorter the venting length with minimal 90 degree turns, the better the performance of the dryer. Improperly maintained dryer vent systems can cause premature failure of some of the inner components of the dryer, as well as pose a fire safety risk.
