Dryer Repair
Vancouver

Our technicians offer reliable and
professional repair solutions in Vancouver!

Dryers use a fuel source to heat the air – a motor to rotate the drum and a fan to circulate the hot air to dry your clothes. But a dryer breakdown can have a direct impact on the efficiency of your appliance. The ElectraFix Vancouver team can assist with your repair needs.

Dryers, like other household machines, are complicated appliances requiring professional assistance when they malfunction. ElectraFix repair specialists use the right tools to repair and restore your dryers to their prior operating conditions.

At ElectraFix, we care for all your repair needs!

Loud Noise or Vibration

One of the main concerns many have is when the dryer makes loud noises or vibrations. Our technicians will inspect the dryer if it makes too much noise. The problem is likely because of a broken belt, a faulty drum roller, or a dryer blower.

Drive Belt

A drive belt helps rotate the drum during a dry cycle. When your dryer works, the belt is under a lot of stress, leading to wear & tear or breakages. If your machine makes too much noise, it is time to replace the drive belt.

Dryer Drum Roller

A roller drum keeps the drum in place during the dry cycle. The roller drum must be inspected when the dryer makes too much noise. Depending on the situation, you may need to replace just one or all the rollers.

Dryer Blower

A blower circulates air by pushing hot air out of the vent. If your dryer makes too much noise, vibrates, or dries clothes for a long time, you may need to replace your blower.

No Heat

You may need dryer repair services when the dryer is working but not producing heat. The concern is usually with a blown fuse or a faulty heating element. Sometimes, you may need to replace the main control board to resolve the issue, but ElectraFix is here to handle your repair needs.

Drive Belt

A drive belt helps rotate the drum during a dry cycle. When your dryer works, the belt is under a lot of stress, leading to wear & tear or breakages. If your machine makes too much noise, it is time to replace the drive belt.

Dryer Drum Roller

Dryer Blower

A blower circulates air by pushing hot air out of the vent. If your dryer makes too much noise, vibrates, or dries clothes for a long time, you may need to replace your blower.

Won’t Spin?

This is a common problem with dryers. There are various reasons why your dryer may not spin. Try turning the drum by hand; if it spins easily, the belt is probably broken or slipped off. Sometimes, the motor is faulty, and the dryer won’t turn.

Drum Belt

Check if the drum belt is broken by simply spinning the drum. If it rotates too quickly, the belt is likely damaged. You should always inspect the belt for signs of wear and tear and replace it if necessary.

Drum Roller

Your dryer may have more than one drum roller. Damage to the rollers can make it difficult for the drum to spin and places excess stress on the motor. If the drum doesn’t turn freely or evenly when spinning by hand, you may have to replace the drum rollers.

Drum Slides

Located at the front of the drum, drum slides support and guide the dryer drum to spin. Worn-out drum slides can lead to too much friction causing the motor not to work. These must be inspected and replaced as a set if they are damaged.

Drum Bearing

A drum bearing is essential for the working of a dryer and is located at the back of the drum. Remove the drive belt and spin the drum by hand. If you feel or hear a grinding noise, your drum bearings are faulty. Inspect and do the necessary replacement for your dryer to work again.

Won’t Start

There are many reasons your dryer may not turn on. It could be that a thermal fuse is damaged or an issue with the door switch and more. Call ElectraFix for a dryer repair service if you have any problems.

Thermal Fuse

Located near the dryer’s heat source, the thermal fuse protects your dryer from overheating. This is the most common dryer problem that many people have. A blown thermal fuse could indicate that your dryer vent is clogged. Clean the vent before starting the dryer again.

Start Switch

If the start switch is faulty, your dryer won’t work. Test this by turning on the dryer. If the dryer makes a humming sound but does not start, your “Start” switch is working. If there is no noise, then the button may be defective. Test with a multimeter. If there is no continuity, it is time to replace the switch.

Door Switch

The clicking noise you hear when you close your dryer door is the door switch. If the door switch clicks when you press it, it is functioning. You’ll need to replace the door switch if there’s no click.

Drive motor

A drive motor is essential as it makes the dryer’s drum turn and the blower wheel work. Check the drive motor if the dryer doesn’t turn on. Remove the dryer belt and verify that the blower wheel is clear of any blocks.

Takes A Long Time to Dry

One of the most common complaints about a dryer is that it takes too long to dry clothes. There can be many reasons, like an issue with the airflow, a clogged vent with restricted air circulation, or a faulty blower wheel. ElectraFix’s technicians will inspect and repair your dryer to ensure its full functionality.

Air Flow

A clogged exhaust vent can cause your dryer to malfunction. Too much moisture can remain inside the machine. Inspect your dryer vents manually.

Lint Filter

The first thing to check is your lint filter. A lint filter is a filter that catches particles of lint. These particles accumulate on the screen and must be removed after each dryer use. ElectraFix dryer repair services will ensure the lint screens are clean and the dryer is in working condition.

Blower Wheel

The blower wheel is essential as it takes warm air from the coil and pushes it into the drum for the clothes to dry. Remove the vents and check the power of the airflow to see if the blower wheel is defective. The blower wheel should not wobble when rotated by hand.

Heating Element

The heating element and coil heat the air in the dryer. The heating element must be cleaned or replaced if the coil burns out or is damaged.
