Assess the Size of the Problem
There are times when the dryer may make a strange noise, or not dry your clothes all the way through during a cycle. Although this can be alarming, it may be something easy to fix. For example, if the filter on your dryer is clogged, it can hinder performance.
Or, if you forget to empty your pockets of the nails, screws, and small tools you forgot to remove from your pockets after work, you will hear strange noises. Not that we have ever done that, of course.
Before you call a local Phoenix appliance repair company, check for simple solutions like cleaning the lint out of the trap. Sometimes we freak out only to find the answer was something super easy. Examples include forgetting to plug in the dryer, checking to see if the breaker tripped, or when the floor becomes uneven.
It won’t always be so easy, however. There may be bigger issues that let you know you need to call the pros.
If you see sparks or fire coming from your dryer, it’s time to call the pros. If your dryer is 15 years old and your utility bill is higher than your paycheck, it’s time to call the pros. Finally, if the wires in the back look dried and cracked, it’s time to call the pros.
