Troubleshooting: Dryer Won’t Turn On

Troubleshooting: Dryer Won’t Turn On

 

There’s nothing worse than loading your dryer with wet sopping clothes, and realizing it won’t turn on. Especially living in an apartment or condo, where setting your clothes to dry outside may not be an option, a broken dryer is a big deal. If you find yourself in this situation, worry not! City Master – Appliance Repair Services can help. Here are some troubleshooting tips for a dryer that won’t turn on.

1) Not Plugged In

There are some complicated problems, and then there is this. Before you call for dryer repair over your broken dryer, make sure your appliance is plugged in and the breaker has not tripped.

2) Faulty Thermal Fuse

Your dryer repair checklist should start with the thermal fuse. This fuse helps prevent fires by shutting off power if the dryer gets too hot. This is the most common fault if you find that your dryer will not start. Once the thermal fuse has blown, it needs to be replaced, and there may be an underlying problem that needs to be addressed that is causing your dryer to overheat. Let our technicians help! Contact us and one of our experts will come as soon as possible.

3) Faulty Door Switch

If your dryer doesn’t start, there is a chance that it still thinks that the door is open. The ‘door switch’ is what lets the dryer know that the door is closed, and if this is not engaging, then the dryer will not start.  As a note, it is possible that your broken dryer is not so broken at all, and there is something blocking the door from closing all the way. Always check and make sure this is not the case.

4) Faulty Start Switch

The final most common problem is a faulty ‘start switch’. This is located on the control panel, and actuated when you actually press the start button or turn the dial. If your dryer won’t start, there is a possibility that this switch is faulty. Our technicians can test your dryer’s start switch and replace it if it is faulty.

Dryer Won’t Start: What to do Next?

If you have not yet diagnosed your broken dryer, it may be more complicated, such as a faulty drive motor, belt switch, or control board. But worry not! This does not mean it is time to shell out for a new dryer. If you need any help with the replacement of these parts or further diagnosis of the problem, our experienced technicians at City Master – Appliance Repair Services would be happy to help.

We had a service technician look at my faulty washing machine. He was extremely professional, and made sure to explain what was wrong with the unit. What I appreciate the most is that the Manager called to make sure I was satisfied with the service after the service call was done. Not many companies out there are truly there for the customer. Will recommend this company to everyone!

This was my first time using this company. I will be booking all of my future appliance appointments with them now. The website and the online booking system were easy to understand and use. I got a call when the technician was on the way, although I missed it, and they still came out at the scheduled time. The technician was very friendly and knowledgeable about the product. I was given a few options for repair along with estimates emailed to me before he left the house. I was able to pay for the service call – which was very reasonable – on the spot. I highly recommend City Master Appliance!

Great guys, friendly service. They even return your calls. Being in the industry over 40 years, you see allot. Now with the internet it’s changed the market place. Now the dead beats who don’t want to pay the bill try and say things to hurt a business. Trying to squirm out of paying. Just pay your bills and quit being a Karren…Shannon
