It’s interesting to sit back and ponder what our ancestors used to do before dryers were invented. Imagine what they’d think of this magical drying machine we all take for granted. And while it’s not exactly an essential piece of equipment, it certainly is a useful one. That’s especially true if you live in an apartment complex without a clothesline, have a busy schedule, or a house full of kids.
Not having to haul your laundry out to the line can be a real timesaver. And, considering how fluffy it makes the towels, a dryer is a great tool to have in the home. That is—until it’s not working.
When you pull the laundry out of your dryer, and it’s as wet as when it went in, it’s not a good feeling. But, if you’re in the Brentwood area, there’s no need to worry. You have the best dryer repair team right in your back yard.

Should I Tinker With it Myself?
If you’re handy around the house, the idea of paying someone to fix something is annoying. Do yourself a favor and check the lint trap and exhaust duct before you call us in. But any other repairs we suggest leaving to us.
For starters, this is a major appliance, and it’s not that easy to fix. Wire the wrong connections together, and you might blow the motor or cause irreparable damage. It’s not worth trying to save a few bucks if it’s going to mean you have to buy a new dryer.
We charge reasonable rates, and we’ll get to the nature of the problem quickly for you. We get great deals on new parts, so calling us in will cost you a lot less than you might think.
When it’s Essential to Get a Pro In
The Drum is Spinning, But There’s No Heat
Several different things can cause this issue. These include:
- Problems with fuses
- Temperature switches that have gone bad
- Faulty thermostats
- Heating coil issues
- Timers that are out of whack
All of these repairs require opening up the machine—which is a job best left for the pros.
The Drum is Not Spinning
Most of the time, this is related to the belt breaking. It can also be that the roller needs to be replaced, or that the motor has blown.
The Machine is Overheating
A clog could be the culprit. Switch the machine off and let it cool down. Then check the lint trap and vent and see if there is a blockage. If so, clear it out and then see what happens. If this doesn’t work, it could be the thermostat or a faulty heating coil.
It Won’t Turn On
First, check if there is power getting through to the machine. Are any of the lights on? Are the LED displays lighting up? If not, you need to check:
- If it’s plugged in
- That the electrical outlet is functioning
- If any breakers have tripped
- If there is an issue with the power cord
