'Should you repair or replace your defective dryer?'
A residential dryer is expected to last 11 to 18 years, although commercial dryers can last anywhere from 5 to 20 years. Typically, an electric dryer will last a few years longer than its′ gas-powered counterpart.
Deciding whether to repair or replace a dryer usually comes down to assessing the likely repair cost. If you know a major part needs replaced, then you can easily assume the entire repair will be too costly. Meanwhile, if your dryer is less than 10 years old it is usually worth paying to get it repaired.
Further, you must consider the replacement cost. Paying $400 for a dryer repair on a dryer with its′ equivalent having a MSRP of only $500 would be foolish. However, it would obviously be sensible if your washing machine cost $2,000 just six years ago.
Use your own judgment, but do not be afraid to get an estimate; if hired, we will remove the diagnostics charge from your bill anyway!
'How much does it cost to fix a washing machine?'
You can expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $400 to get your dryer fixed.
Is it just a simple dryer repair job?

'What′s wrong with your dryer?'
The problems between electric and gas dryers differ a bit since the parts inside them vary.
Gas dryers have no heating elements, but they do have: flame sensors, ignition coils, igniters, and gas valves.
With that said, here are some of the common problems we deal with:
- Dryer belt failure. If the dryer belt gives out, you will want to pay to get it professionally replaced. This requires a fair bit of disassembly work and many are unable to complete the repair on their own.
- Failing to produce heat. A lack of heat could be the result of the thermostat not working properly, or it could be the sign of defection from fuses, the temperature switch, or the heating coils. For the most part, these repair jobs are not too expensive. Although, you need to remember there can be major variance in the cost of dryer heating elements.
- Producing too much heat. Usually this happens because the ventilation gets blocked up, but sometimes it is the result of the heating coils or the thermostat not working right. This is a cheap problem to fix -- but it can get really expensive if you ignore it.
- Drum complications. If your drum is not working properly, it is probably due to issues with the dryer belt. If not, the drum motor, pulley or roller could be to blame.
If a dryer coil needs looked at or replaced, make sure to hire a professional -- likewise, an expert should handle any serious issues involving gas dryers.

Your dryer is one of the most demanding appliances in your home when it comes to energy consumption. If you want to save on energy costs, this is where you should start. You can achieve major savings by drying your clothes on a clothesline when the weather allows you to do so. Alternatively, you can lower your energy costs a bit by using a clothing rack to complete the last 10 minutes of your drying cycle. If your normal dry load time is 60 minutes, you will save a full load every six loads. That definitely adds up over time.
