Do It Yourself Clothes Dryer Repair

Clothes dryers are more reliable than ever, but you’re likely to have at least one minor issue with yours during its lifetime. If you do, don’t worry. No matter whether you have a Whirlpool, GE, or Kenmore appliance, most dryer problems are relatively minor. Plus, spare parts are easy to find at home improvement stores and online. Since little problems are so common, these stores stock most small replacement parts.

Of course, your dryer might have a more major problem. If you can’t diagnose the problem yourself, you might call a professional appliance repair person. A specialist can at least tell you what the problem is, and then let you know how much it will cost to repair. If your dryer is still under warranty, the company might pay for the necessary repairs. This is a great reason to get a good warranty.

Often the problem is simple to fix with a little know how and some Kenmore dryer parts. If you can avoid calling an appliance repair person, you’ll save yourself money and time. Plus, fixing your dryer can be a fun project.

Lots of dryer problems are not a big deal. Clogged exhaust lines are common. Lint can get trapped in your air line and cause your dryer to stop working as well. This can also be a fire hazard, so make sure your lint screen is cleaned regularly. Other problems, like broken belts, drives, or motors, can be found by opening up your dryer. These problems are easily diagnosed and fixed if you do a little work yourself.

If you want to fix your Kenmore or other brand clothes dryer yourself, look online for sources and videos that will tell you exactly how. When the time comes, you can order replacement parts (plus refrigerator parts, clothes washer parts, Sharp microwave oven parts, and all sorts of other appliance parts) online at discount prices.
