Clothes Dryer Service and Repair
Before you call Appliance Repair Pros Philadelphia for service, there are a couple of things you need to check to see if you can determine the problem with your dryer.
Is your dryer getting hotter than typical? Take a look at the dust filter. Clean it out, and restart the dryer and permit it to heat up once again. If it is still getting too hot, then let it cool, unplug it, and pull the dryer out from the wall. Examine the vent hose for any dust buildup. Make sure to clean all of it out prior to reattaching the vent hose to your wall connection.
If you have an older vent hose made of plastic, you need to change it with corregated metal vent hose. Plastic vents can cause a fire if overheated.
Test the dryer out once again by running it with another heat cycle. If it is still running too hot, then call us at 404-620-6933 you might have a heater element problem.

Gas Dryer Repair
When a gas dryer breaks down, there are different repair issues.
- Thermal Fuse
- Gas Coils
- Clogged Vent
A full diagnosis of your dryer will determine if the thermal fuse is running normally and if it is drawing adequate amperage. If not, then this might be the problem of not getting heat or adequate heat in your dryer.
When a dryer overheats, the safety fuse will trip. Typically the thermal fuse will shut down the dryer when there are clogged up vents.
It’s is likewise possible that the vent hose is kinked and not allowing air to flow effectively, or there could be lint buildup in the lint filter housing at the rear of the machine.
