Laundromats and homemakers alike rely on high-quality Estate dryer parts to dry their clothes and other material items. One common issue is that the dryer leaves the clothes or items feeling damp. There are many ways to troubleshoot this problem.
The dryer heating element supplies the heat that dries the garments. If the dryer is not heating properly, check the heating element for any visible damage. If it is broken, it needs to be replaced. If it does not look broken but is not producing heat when the correct voltage is applied, it must be replaced. The heating element is one of many dryer repair parts that is easy to find. When replacing the dryer heating element, be sure to shut the dryer power off and wear gloves to protect your hands.
One dryer troubleshooting strategy is to replace the dryer igniter. When the igniter triggers the gas, the flame sensor detects the temperature and diverts current flow to the gas valve coils, which lights the burner. If the dryer igniter is not working properly, it cannot light the burner and must be replaced. Be sure to shut off the power and gas supply before replacing the igniter.
The small motor on the back of the timer advances the drying cycle during use. The internal cams on the timer control the drive motor and the heating element. If the timer is not working properly, the dryer won't start, heat or advance, and the timer needs to be replaced. Before replacing the dryer timer, turn the power off.
