There are a wide range of serviceable parts for all modern drying machines which are readily available directly from the manufacturers.

Why would my Tumble Dryer suddenly stop working?

Tumble dryers have complex control systems and mechanisms to stop them overheating and catching fire, so if your machine has all of a sudden broken down out of the blue, there is a good chance it could be related to a fuse that has tripped or the thermal overload has cut out. Along with a faulty or noisy drum, no heat is one of the most common faults we see.

Fortunately, modern tumble dryers have a reset switch at the rear of the unit. Referring to the manual that came with your dryer, you could start by resetting the machine if you have experienced a heat related problem. If that doesn’t solve the issue, you will need to give us a call for further investigation.

When checking your dryer, we will look for any signs of a blockage through a build up of lint and fluff, check the heater elements and check for any faults with the thermostat controls. We are well trained and certified in all Tumble Dryer Repairs Cape Town so rest assured your in good hands, fixing your issue on site and minimising disruption to your day.

If the main Drum in your dryer isn’t turning effectively, this will effect the overall drying ability of the machine. The drum needs to turn to evenly apply heat to the load inside, and if its stuck or won’t turn at all, you’ll need to get a repairman in to take a further look.

In most cases, issue with Drum not turning can be fixed fairly quickly, and a simple belt replacement is needed for older models or in newer versions, the direct drive motor could have a fault and need repaired. If this isn’t the case, we also look at worn Jockey Wheels or the capacitors powering the motor. Whatever the issue, we aim to fix it fast have your dryer working good as new again in no time.

Whilst this isn’t up there with the most common issues we find with broken Tumble Dryers, its one that’s worth addressing. In many cases the main cause of the dryer not starting is likely to be the door switch. If the switch is faulty, the machine doesn’t acknowledge that the door is closed and therefore wont begin the cycle.

Other issues relating to non starting dryers could be ventilation issues. On condenser dryers, if the water tray is full, you may find the machine wont turn on and the same goes for ventilation hose outlets on standard dryers. Usually an easy and cheap issue to fix but non the less, one that should be completed by a certified technician. 

A noisy Tumble Dryer or one that’s displaying signs of excessive vibration is usually identified as a faulty bearing, Jockey Wheel or in rarer cases, worn out Felt Pads. This type of issue is pretty easy to spot and one that can become quite troublesome if using the machine at night due to excessive noise.

One of the main causes of this type of fault is where people stack there dryer on top of their washing machines to save space. The increased load can cause damage to one or more of the appliances and from a professional stand point, we do not recommend it.
