Dryer Repair in the San Francisco East Bay Area
A typical household dryer should last between ten and 15 years if properly maintained. If your dryer is less than 15 years old and takes more than 30 minutes to dry a full load of freshly laundered clothes (assuming that the spin on your washing machine is properly functioning!), there is an issue with your dryer’s performance. As the mate to the washing machine, the dryer is one of the most convenient household appliances. However, because clothes can easily be air dried, many people will just deal with a malfunctioning or broken dryer much longer than they will with any other ill-performing household appliance. When the dyer begins to show symptoms of poor performance, too many households will adjust their laundry practices and run the dryer through several cycles to achieve dry, fluffy clothes rather than look into dryer repair or replacement. Unfortunately, this only adds to the household’s frustration and your energy bill!
At WEPCO Services, Inc, we are a family owned and operated appliance repair company and we understand the tension that a malfunctioning or broken dryer can put on your household when your family members don’t have dry uniforms or bath towels. Our appliance repair professionals are quick to provide quality dryer repair service that will get your dryer back in commission to get your normal laundry schedule back on track. We can handle any issues involving your residential or commercial dryer. Whether your dryer is gas or electric, front or top loading, or part of a washer/dryer combo, our appliance repair professionals can easily diagnose and repair it. We can repair or replace almost every part of your dryer, including:
- Idler Pulley
- Heating Coil
The most common dryer problems are that the machine will not turn on, it has become excessively noisy, clothes come out wrinkled, it does not tumble, there is no heat, multiple cycles are required to dry clothes, or it is too hot. If your dryer is experiencing any of these symptoms, try our troubleshooting tips and then give us a call!
- The dryer won’t turn on- If your dryer will not turn on at all or is “dead,” first make sure that it is plugged in. Often times when the washer agitates, it can knock plugs out of the outlet. Be sure that the dryer vent tubing is not smashed behind the dryer, pushing against the plug. If the dryer is plugged in, next make sure the breaker wasn’t tripped. If nothing else in the laundry room is working, reset the laundry room power at the breaker box. If it still will not turn on, before you decide to scrap the dryer, give our appliance repair professionals a call!
- The dryer is not getting hot- If your dryer is tumbling but is not getting hot or is only getting mildly warm, this could be caused by a malfunctioning temperature switch, a bad fuse, or a faulty thermostat. Any of these issues are an easy fix for our appliance repair technicians.
- The dryer won’t spin- If your dryer appears to be working, but the drum won’t tumble your clothes, this is not going to effectively dry your clothes. The issue may be a broken belt, motor, or pulley — all of which are easy fixes to an appliance repair professional.
- The dryer gets too hot- If your dryer is operating as it should but it is getting too hot, it could be a bad thermostat, a clogged vent, or faulty heating coils. Our appliance repair professionals can easily handle these issues, and should as soon as possible. If your dryer is getting too hot, it is important that you do not use it and you have it fixed right away as this could turn into a very dangerous situation and potentially cause a fire.
