Dryer Parts, Repair Help, Videos & Maintenance Advice

  • Improperly maintained vent systems can cause all kinds of dryer problems, from premature failure of bearings, to faulty elements, ignitors and other critical parts.
  • Experts recommend NOT using white plastic exhaust duct on any dryer. White plastic is not only flammable, but greatly increases your drying time.
  • When your dryer vent is dirty or clogged, your clothes take much longer to dry. Clothes that are overheated at the end of cycle get wrinkled, which is bad for Perma-Press items. Your dryer unit will also run much noisier than usual while operating because it has to work harder but clothes might be damp even after the cycle ends. Automatic sensors might fail to shut off causing premature failure of heating element and motor or bearings.
  • To ensure best results every time you use your dryer unit, maintain your appliance, clean the dryer lint before every cycle and keep your vent clean.
