Dryer doesn't run

Issue description:

Experts point out several factors due to which the dryer may fail:

Violation of operating rules. It is worth noting a whole range of aspects here. First, people often overload the apparatus with clothing. The characteristics of dryers always indicate the maximum load for cotton items. Jeans, wool, synthetics weigh more, so the load limit should be reduced. If you do not take into account this nuance, you will systematically overload the motor, drive belt or drum rollers, due to which these components will fail. Also, you should not put too wet things in dryers (in which there is an excess of moisture). They are heavier (and here we return to the first point); in addition, the machine will dry such things for too long, and this is fraught with overheating of the motor, heating element or even the drum.

Careless operation. This moment is very similar to the previous one, but it has its own subtleties. In this case, we are talking about sharp slams of the door (the latching mechanism may break), strong pressing of the buttons (the sensor or the gasket of the physical button may fail). It is also extremely important to carefully insert clothes into the drum. Throwing everything in at once can make your wardrobe items tangled (and even the blades won't help). If a lump forms in the drum, the load will be uneven. This will lead to imbalance and rapid wear of the belt and rollers.

Poor maintenance. Any (even the most expensive) dryer requires periodic maintenance. In condensing units, it is imperative to clean the moisture collection container. It is also necessary to periodically clean the lint filter. If the design includes a discharge hose, it must also be periodically disconnected and rinsed. Otherwise, your machine will get clogged up structural elements, which will cause malfunctions.

Natural wear and tear. Usually this reason affects the outlet elements of the dryer: a hose for draining or draining condensate, a pump for pumping out moisture. Also, over time, some parts of the motor may fail.

Factory defect. Nobody is immune from this reason.

Ashina can be delivered to you with a variety of defects: the door does not close properly, one of the sensors does not work, one or several controls do not respond to commands. In order to avoid such troubles, it is better to buy quality models from manufacturers with a good reputation (we indicated them at the beginning of the review). In addition, when buying, you must definitely issue a guarantee.

How to avoid damage?

The first and foremost rule is to adhere to the manufacturer's instructions.

Do not overload the drum.

Consider the drying class when loading. Improper use leads to overheating and rupture of the drive belt.

Do not load too wet laundry.

Set separate programs for each type of laundry.

Drain the condenser in time. Clean it from lint and dust. An abundance of dirt can even lead to a fire in case of severe overheating.

If a breakdown is found, it is better to contact the master, the dryer belongs to the class of dangerous household appliances. If you need help with emergency dryer repair, call us right now!
