Homemakers and professional laundries rely on quality parts from Sears PartsDirect to keep their Matsushita dryers up and running. A frequent dryer complaint is a machine that leaves the clothing damp after a typical dry cycle. Troubleshoot and repair this problem with these dryer repair tips.

Clean the Ventilation System

Use a long, flexible brush and your vacuum to remove lint from your dryer exhaust vent. Clean the area between the lint filter and the rear exhaust, inside the vent tubing and through the outside vent cover. A clean ventilation system keeps air moving through the dryer so that it can properly dry your clothing.

Inspect the Dryer Timer

The dryer timer opens and shuts contacts to operate the heating element and motor in the dryer as the dry cycle advances. A short in the timer keeps the other parts of the dryer from functioning properly, which can lead to damp clothing. If the timer does not advance smoothly, it needs to be replaced. Choose the right dryer repair parts from Sears PartsDirect to replace the timer and get your dryer working.

Check the Operating Thermostat

The dryer operating thermostat keeps the dryer at the proper temperature for the set cycle. If the thermostat fails, the dryer heats inadequately and leaves clothing damp instead of dry. Dryer troubleshooting includes testing the thermostat circuits with a multimeter. If the thermostat is not functioning properly, replace the part to fix the problem.

Quality Matsushita dryer parts keep your dryer working load after load. To fix your dryer with parts and tools from Sears PartsDirect, choose your model from the list above, click the chat button, or call 1-800-252-1698.
