Noisy Dryer Repair Solutions
At All City Appliance Repair, one of the most common problems that we are called in for with regard to dryer repairs in Phoenix is the noisy dryer. While a noisy dryer does not always mean that the appliance no longer works or is about to fail, it can be a great nuisance, and we understand the need to get some peace of mind through an affordable appliance repair service like the one we offer.
There are five common causes for noisy dryers, and each one is a little bit different in its scope and approach. Depending on the details, different repair techniques will be utilized by the appliance technician we send to your home – with same day service available.
The five most common causes stem from the following issues:
- Idler Pulley
- Blower Wheel
- Rear Drum Bearing
If one of these items is worn out, it generally needs to be replaced by an appliance repair company like ours. We carry most brands and models of dryer repair replacement parts and can often get your dryer running smoothly and quietly in the same day.
In order to know which of these elements might be causing the problems you experience, it is important to understand a little better what each of these devices does:
The Dryer Idler Pulley
This is a simple pulley system that maintains tension over the drive belt while the dryer is tumbling. After years of use, it can become old and begin making a screeching noise as the belt rubs against it. Unfortunately, lubricating the pulley does not work so it will have to be replaced by a dryer repair technician. This is not a hard task to complete.
Rollers support the main drum of the dryer and allow it to spin. When these begin making noise, they require replacement. It is generally advised that all of these rollers are replaced at the same time in order to function smoothly with one another.
This is another element that supports the main drum and can become worn out, requiring replacement. The glides tend to be on the front of the drum, in the same area as the door.
The Blower Wheel
The blower is what drags air over the heating element and into the drying tub. Extensive dryer repair may not be necessary if the blower is simply clogged with lint. If the blower is cleaned and the dryer still makes loud noises, another part may require replacement.
The Rear Drum Bearing
Certain dryer models forego the use of rollers and, instead, feature a ball-and-socket type of bearing joint in their back. This can easily wear out and become noisy, usually with a particular squealing grind that is unique to the round mechanism of the device.
If you notice any of these problems, All City Appliance Repair is here to help you solve it. There are few things more annoying than loud appliances, and if you are in need of dryer repair service like this, or for any of your other major home appliances such as needing washing machine repair, dishwasher, refrigerator or even oven repair in Phoenix, we are here to take the call.
