  • The repair person was on time and honest. He advised us that the cost of repair would be as much or more then purchasing the same quality washer. It was what I thought, but he confirmed it. The peace of mind is priceless.

Dryers can experience various issues in different areas—from the drum not turning to the dryer not starting. It may be that your dryer is taking much too long or that it is overheating. It's important to diagnose the exact problem before attempting any repair. If you choose not to do it yourself, you'll find many qualified professionals to service your dryer in Oakland.Your dryer likely follows the same basic functions: Most dryers work via a motor with pulleys and belts that turn the drum. Gas- or electric-heated air blows through the device. Timed thermostats control heat and speed. Many if not most dryers also have a restart button that can get things running if the issue is not part of the motor, switches, or electrical system. If you are having trouble diagnosing the issue, it may be time to contact a dryer repair professional in Oakland.
