The number one appliance issue has been dryers that will not heat. Dryer heating element failure and dryer safety circuit failure is primarily due to excess lint in the dryer or clogged vents.
Dryers have as many as 3 safety circuits to prevent excess heat. These safety circuits when burned out are not resettable.
Our EXPERTS suggest a thorough cleaning of the dryer interior when servicing the dryer. An inspection of belts, bearings and motors should also be done.
Inspection of your dryer vent system is also highly recommend. Clogged vents will burn out the dryer safety circuits and/or heating elements. Clogged vents are also a home fire hazard.
Some dryer heating elements are behind the drum and require cabinet disassembly and removal of the dryer drum. The removal of the drum also often requires new lubricants and/or bearings when reassembled.

Proper dryer service can return most dryers to a like new silent efficient and effective dryer providing many years of service.
