Tumble Dryer Repair
Common Tumble Dryer Faults
- No heat
This is the most common report we have when servicing a tumble dryer. Check if there is a button on the back on the machine to reset it before giving us a call. If not, then we would need to look at any blockages (with lint/fluff), the heater may be faulty, thermostat may be faulty, or have tripped.
- Drum not turning
This will stop the dryer drying effectively. It’s fairly common, and usually easily fixed. We may have to replace a faulty belt or in other cases, look at the motor, motor capacitor or the jockey wheels.
- Not starting
Whilst not a common problem, you may have a faulty door switch, or the machine isn’t vented properly.
- Noisy Machine
This is usually caused by faulty bearings, jockey wheels or worn felt pads. We find if people have their washing machine and tumble dryer stacked, then the vibration can cause damage to one or both appliances.
- Water leaks.
This can be a simple as the water tank (in a condenser tumble dryer) has not been emptied, or not placed back into the housing correctly.
- Bad smells/Odour
This is often caused by a build up of lint/fluff. You may find a bend in the vent hose or the filters haven’t been cleaned properly.
