Dryer won't tumble correctly

Issue description:

Failure of the tumble dryer can be affected by such factors as blown wiring, fuse or motor, oxidized terminals, and filling the condensate container.

However, the tumble dryer may have more unpleasant reasons that require repair :

damaged drive belt

broken door switch

broken start switch

broken engine

faulty control panel

broken thermal fuse

Dryer won't tumble correctly


So, the dryer shuts down or does not work in principle. There are several reasons for this:

Thermal fuse. The sensor protects the equipment from overheating and is responsible for the normal operation of the heating element - the key heating element of the structure. The fuse is installed inside the electrical circuit, i.e. current passes through it constantly. If the part is overheated or burned out, the integrity of the circuit is broken, electricity does not flow to the heater. Unit failure - signal of air ventilation failure. The part cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Start switch. Its serviceability can be checked by turning on the dryer. If the equipment emits a low-frequency hum - the switch is working properly, the problem lies elsewhere. Zero reaction and absence of noise indicates a breakdown of the trigger mechanism.

Door lock. In all modern dryers, before the drum starts to work, the door lock should work (characteristic click). The absence of a click indicates a circuit malfunction, and the bollard must be replaced.

Drive (motor). The most serious reason, it is also the most expensive to maintain. The main hints of a malfunction are increased noise and extraneous sounds (clogging or damage to the impeller is possible).

Input voltage. First of all, connect the device to another outlet and check the automation on the switchboard. If all else fails - call a specialist who will perform a diagnostic "continuity" of the circuit and identify the malfunction.

Control panel. An extremely rare breakdown, which is determined by the residual principle (if the previous cases did not show a malfunction). The main reason is the failure of the microcontroller and the control circuit (voltage drop, short circuit, moisture on the board). Only element replacement helps.

Dryers may not work for various reasons. Modern machines are technology that has passed the test for years. Most often, malfunctions occur due to a violation of the operating mode of equipment or after many years of operation due to wear of mechanisms and assemblies. Cases of factory defects in such machines are extremely rare.

The device will last a long time and trouble-free, if you follow the basic rules of operation. One of them is that it is not recommended to load large quantities of wet laundry into the machine drum. This leads to unnecessary stress on the bearings, which causes them to wear out prematurely.

Power surges can damage electronic circuits and sensors. Try to provide the machine with additional devices that will protect the machine from power surges. If you need help with emergency dryer repair, call us right now!
