A dryer can stop working properly for a variety of reasons, so finding the right source and area is important before you attempt or seek repairs. Dryers can experience issues from not stopping or starting to overheating or taking too long to complete a cycle. For dryer repair beyond what you want to attempt, many repair pros in Dorchester are just a phone call away.It's easier to locate the problem if you understand the basics: Most dryers run on a motor that uses pulleys and belts turn the drum. Air that's gas- or electric-heated is pushed through the drum. Timed thermostats control heat and speed. Many if not most dryers also have a restart button that can solve issues if they are not part of the motor, switches, or electrical system.
