Don’t get rid of your noisy dryer

As technology progresses many things become easier to manufacture and therefore cheaper to make. While dryers aren’t cheap they are not as expensive as much more complex oven for example or a fridge. Due to its price dryers are easiest to replace but don’t run to your local appliance retailer if your dryer starts to make unusual noises. Most of the time noisy dryer is easy to fix and parts are not expensive and easily available. Here at Tricity Appliances our technicians carry a range of common parts for dryers to get them fixed quickly and properly.

Last couple of weeks our technicians visited few customers with noisy dryers. One customer complained of rattling noise while dryer was running. After little investigation technician determined that blower wheel was loose because it developed a crack. Blower wheel is a plastic wheel, most of the time driven by main motor or sometimes by its own motor on compact dryers. Due to heat inside the dryer plastic can become brittle and cracks becoming the source of rattling noise. Most of the time blower wheel is inexpensive and relatively easy to replace.  


When it comes to Samsung and LG dryers design, they are very similar yet different. They do share common component however, support rollers. Support rollers, most of the time four or six, depending on the model, provide support for dryer drum and allow it to turn easily. Support rollers commonly become seized up causing drum to cut one side of the roller making it lopsided which can lead to thumping noise coming from the dryer. Once again the rollers are usually inexpensive and our technician carry a variety of rollers for different brands of dryers.
