Appliance tip of the week.


Gas - Dryer is taking too long to dry

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1) Venting - Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged. Make sure the lint filter is also clean and washed.

Note: Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task or an informed DIYer could also perform this job!

2) Thermostat - There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3) Gas valve coils - Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
