Unless you have several hundred clothespins and a line on hand, your clothes dryer is very important to keep running efficiently. The best way to ensure years of reliability is with basic maintenance. The biggest part of maintenance is simply cleaning the lint filter and keeping the vent clean. This simple task keeps your dryer from overheating, eliminates a possible fire hazard, and provides the air flow necessary for the machine to function.
Dryer Repair vs. Replacement
Generally a dryer repair is simple and inexpensive. However, some machines are extremely sophisticated, and have circuit boards, electronic equipment, and computer chips that may go out. We are able to diagnose and fix a variety of problems that may occur with your equipment.
We also provide an honest opinion when it’s time to replace your machine. Generally, if the cost more than 1/3 the cost of a new machine, it is in your best interest to replace the entire machine versus risking one or two costly repairs.
