Clothes Dryers | Appliance Repairs in Northwest Arkansas | A-Tech

Clothes dryers are unique home appliances.  They connect to nearly all major utilities. They also have a line that runs out of the house that channels excess heat safely away from the property. It’s because of its uniqueness that clothes dryers have their own set of unique complications. At A-Tech Appliance, we are here to assist you in identifying the possible problems with your dryer.

Loud Thumping

Do you hear a continual banging or loud thumping when your dryer runs? This likely means you either have too much in the dryer or very large objects (such as rugs). Reduce your load and continue. This will help you avoid motor and other problems later on.

Smells Like Burning

Does it smell like something is burning? Check the lint trap. The lint may have collected around the trap, and now it’s starting to grow hot. You should also check the link around the vent line running from the rear of the dryer.

Not Running at All

If the dryer isn’t running at all, there are a few potential problems. First, check to make sure the appliance is still connected to a power outlet. Dryers can skip about a bit (especially old dryers), which may lead to disconnecting from a power outlet. Next, check to see if you tripped the circuit in the room. If all of these areas check out, there is a chance the motor on the dryer has stopped working, and you need to replace the motor with a new one.
