There are certain appliances that are commonly found in most homes. These include laundry appliances. Having a washer and a dryer in the home is extremely convenient, as long as they are in proper working order. When they aren’t working, home owners either have to call in someone for repairs, or buy new appliances, which can be quite expensive. Some problems are easy to diagnose, and require simple fixes that home owners can do themselves. Others are more difficult, and shouldn’t be tackled by anyone who isn’t properly trained in this type of repair work.
The main reason why people call in experts in dryer repair in Shrewsbury, MA is that there is no heat in the appliance, so clothing isn’t getting dried. The obvious first thing to check is the lint trap. If it is full, warm air will not get to the clothing, and it isn’t going to dry. It only takes a few seconds to clean a lint trap. In fact, it is a good idea to get into the habit of doing this after every load of laundry, so there is no buildup. If this is being done, but it still seems to take a long time for laundry to dry, it may be necessary to ask about dryer vent cleaning services from JM Appliance Service.
If the appliance is a gas dryer, and there is a smell of gas near the dryer, never light matches or a lighter, and don’t turn on any electrical switches, as it could set off a spark and ignite. Immediately turn off the gas valve that goes to this appliance. Get everyone out of the home, and open the doors and windows to air out the house. If it is a mild odor, make sure the house is well ventilated, then relight the pilot light. If there is a strong odor, turn off the gas supply valve with an adjustable wrench. Then, call in the experts in dryer repair in Shrewsbury MA from a neighbor’s phone, or from a mobile phone. Same day/next day service is available for all types of appliance repair.
