My dryer is not drying. Help!

maytag-dryerIt is always frustrating when an appliance is not performing its most basic function. Much like a freezer that doesn’t keep its cool — no pun intended — or a stove that fails to heat, a drying machine that does not dry your clothes can be infuriating, especially if you need the clothes to go to an important event. In today’s article, we’ll provide you with a couple of things to check on your dryer. Be sure to call Platinum Cares if you need a dryer technician in Franklin Park, Illinois.


Without further ado, here are some things you should have a look into if your drying machine fails to work correctly:


– The venting hose: This part is responsible for the air flow in your machine. If the airflow is somehow constricted, it greatly reduces the efficiency of your machine. Make sure there is no blockage there.


– Lint trap: This should be a no-brainer. You should remove any dust that has accumulated there after each cycle. This will make your dryer run more efficiently and reduce drying time.


– Element: If the element is worn or burnt out, it will take forever to dry your clothes. Refer to your instruction manual for specifics on how to access your drying machine’s heating element. You can test it to make sure it is working properly. Replace it if necessary.



Your drying machine could also be taking too much time to dry due to a defective thermostat, though this is not the most likely thing to happen. Also, and this goes without saying, but make sure you didn’t accidently set your dryer to the air fluff cycle, which provides no heat at all and could explain why your clothes are not drying.


If nothing listed above seems to be the reason behind your drying machine not working properly, you should get in touch with an appliance servicer promptly.
