Another day, another time to do a load of laundry. As you place your wet clothes into the dryer, you turn the machine on and wait for them to be done. When you come back to take your clothes out of the dryer, however, they are still wet. What’s going on here, and why is your dryer not drying your clothes properly? 

This issue can be quite the nuisance. After all, what’s the point in owning a dryer if it can’t effectively dry your clothes for you? Here at Alpha Appliance Services, we want to talk about this issue in detail so you can try to figure out what’s going on with your dryer (and let you know if you require a dryer repair to fix it!). 

Clogged Lint Trap 

When people talk about how important it is to clean your lint trap after every cycle, they say it for a reason. A blocked/clogged lint trap is often the cause of a dryer not drying clothes properly, as well as a dryer overheating. If this issue is ignored for long enough, it can even become a safety hazard and potentially create a house fire. We want to avoid any of these issues if we can, so always be sure to clean out your lint trap in your dryer after every cycle.  

No matter which way you look at it, your dryer will become significantly damaged the longer you leave this issue unresolved. The good news is that the solution to this problem is extremely simple to fix once identified.  

Broken Heating Element 

There can be many reasons as to why a dryer’s heating element has broken down, and in most cases each of these causes leads to a complex issue to fix. When it comes to a broken heating element, we always advise getting in touch with a professional appliance repair specialist so they can properly identify the problem and fix it safely and effectively.  

Air Hose Malfunction 

When your dryer isn’t drying things properly, it could possibly be due to the air hose. When you believe this might be the issue, turn the dryer off and see if the element is working properly. If it isn’t, there may be water in your air hose. This will need to be cleared out in order for the dryer to work properly again. In this situation and any situations regarding a dryers’ ventilation system, we always recommend contacting an appliance repair professional.
