AWooten Appliance
Technician performed service and discovered burnt wiring in dryer. Advised me to not use the dryer as a fire might develop. I could see the wires and concurred. Since they don't sell dryers there was no incentive for them to try to get me to buy a new dryer.

on time. professional. was straight forward and told its faster and cheaper to get a new dryer since the dryer may have had an electrical issue that is worth more than a new dryer. adrian even recommended what type of dryers to look out for.

I called them to look at my dryer because I thought it was no longer functional. It turned out that everything was running smoothly except for the dryer vent. They cleaned the vent and the dryer has worked perfectly since.

Once we told him the make of the dryer and the problem, he set a date 2 days in the future, came on time, and fixed the dryer. No hassle. Problem solved.

Repaired the dryer with the first visit. The technician was friendly and helpful... suggested we have the dryer vent cleaned as well. Fixed it right the first time.

Plus the owner arrived on time, evaluated the broken dryer, told me how much it would cost to fix the dryer and proceeded to fix it. He explained how the problem was caused and provided a 1 year warranty.

Azziz inspected the dryer and diagnosed the problem. He returned with the required parts, installed them and cleaned and oiled the dryer internals and put in a new vent hose

The dryer problem was diagnosed and fixed with parts that the repair person had in his vehicle. He also cleaned accumulated lint that posed a first hazard (even though I had the dryer cleaned within the last six months). He also discovered that the dryer was not properly sealed at the rear of the machine, causing gas heat to escape into the room. I was very pleased with his thorough evaluation of the dryer. Washer required a part that had to be ordered. He returned the next day with the part an completed the repair work.

Easy. There was no heat in my 15-year-old dryer. I called Peaco who was willing to come out the same day. Pius arrived. He listened to the sound of the dryer, not unlike a dryer-whisperer might do. He diagnosed a defective valve coil kit, replaced it and had it working like new in less than an hour. Pius assured me that I have another 11 good years with this dryer!

The dryer did not have any heat - the technician quickly diagnosed the problem and replaced the heating panel and had the dryer working within minutes. He vacuumed out all the dust that had accumulated inside the dryer and re-attached the dryer hose to the outlet (which was actually NOT within the scope of the service.) The technician also accepted the 10% discount coupon. I would definitely use Expert Appliance Service again.

Dryer stopped working on June 3rd, 20111. Call was left on the answering machine on 6/ 5/11.  Call was returned on 6/6/11.  Appointment scheduled for dryer to be looked and evaluated.  The fees were discussed when appointment was made. The owner of the company was the person who came out to look at the dryer.  He assessed the problem and made recommendations.  Parts were ordered and I received a discount.  When the parts came in the dryer was repaired.  Work is guaranty for two years.

The call went great. I have taken dryers apart before, however this seemed to big a job for me with all the electronics associated with my dryer. Jim was great. He arrived on time. Was very professional and knowledgable. He took the dryer apart, found the culprit, replaced the part and was on his way. The dryer has worked like new ever since.

$69 for visit to see if our dryer could be fixed. It was 12 years old and required a new control panel. The repairman suggested just buying a new dryer and recommended what to buy.

The Dryer was declared bad because a fuse kept blowing. Bought new Dryer and fuse still blew. Lost a perfectly good Dryer. The gentleman pulled the motherboard out of the original Dryer and said confidently that the Dryer needed to be replaced. Water ran back from the sink to the dishwasher and the gentleman said the sink outlet needed to be turned around by a plumber. After he left I raised the level of the plastic tube connecting the sink to the dishwasher, with a tie, and the problem was fixed

The washer repair and reconnect was good. The dryer reconnect was unsatisfactory. The repairman indicated he was "not certified to handle gas connections" and did not attempt to connect the gas dryer. So we contacted another firm that reconnected the dryer - a delay of 5 days. Seems to me that a firm should not represent themselves as LG washer and dryer repair experts if they cannot do the work - namely reconnect the gas dryer. Or they should be clear up front that they are incapable of working on gas appliances. Would not hire Service Master again.

Excellent. Prompt service. Honest estimate for work. Was able to repair the dryer by replacing the motor. The cost was fair and well beneath the replacement value of the dryer Would hire again.

Flawlessly. A previous contractor left me high and dry with my dryer disassembled and parts all over the laundry the folks from Wooten came, fixed the dryer and the washer and were out of there in a relatively short period of time.

Technician attempted to fix dryer, but repair did not work. On second visit, technician refunded charge to just service call, and recommended purchase of a new dryer.

Comments above cover the story.  However, Wooten also repaired a dryer machine knob that made the cycles out of sync and corrected my dryer for another item.

Recent Review: The service providers arrived timely.  There were two servicemen which was good because they needed to to remove an older appliance (gas dryer) which was in the basement and  take the new one to the same site and install it.  As I had suspected and had discussed with the representative by phone, the old dryer was too large to get up the stairs.  (No idea how it got down there.) The men who came to do the installation disassembled it without complaint and hauled it out.  To get the new (narrower) one down the stairs, they had to take a door off the hinge - which they also did efficiently and without complaint.  They returned the door to service once finished.  Turns out the gas shut off valve was so old it was no longer code compliant.  They installed a new one.  I was charged for this unplanned service but the charge seemed reasonable.  To add one more complication, the electrical cord on the new dryer would not reach the outlet!  They offered to move the outlet but it would have required a visit on another day since they had not budgeted time for this work.  This project turned out to be more complicated than any of us had anticipated.  The service reps were professional, courteous and did good work.  I was favorably impressed.  Based on this experience, I  would use their services again and would recommend them as a service provider.

Recent Review: Had an issue with the AC right before leaving our pets with a housesitter.  Mannix was there within an hour.  The tech Dave was extremely nice and professional.  He explained exactly what he was doing, and found the problem quickly.  Fortunately it was a relatively small fix, and he had the part with him.  He then took the time to clean off the lint that had accumulated on the outside blower unit from the poorly placed dryer exhaust.  He checked the Freon level, and then went inside and looked at the inside until.  We were talking about hot water heaters, and he also checked ours while he was there. He was neat, and professional, and fast.  He didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need, and explained some things so that I know what to look for if I have problems in the future.  Mannix turned a potentially disasterous situation into a really good experience.  I will definitely call them in the future. An hour later, and we are all chilly cool.  :)

Recent Review: I purchased and Angie's List deal ($99 for $200 service) specifically to replace the dryer outlet and plug.  The wiring had fried emitting a horrible fishy smell.  It took them three days to contact me to set up the visit, which was a little longer than I wanted, but Sean Murphy did go out of his way to accommodate an appointment that met my needs.  The electrician showed up at the beginning of the time window I had been given, which was fantastic, and was efficient and professional.  He pointed out that I had a safety issue as the wiring to my dryer was aluminum and that the outlet was bound to fry again sooner or later.  He very patiently explained what it would entail to replace the wiring and wrote down for me exactly what needed to be done and with what materials.  I'll definitely call back and use Murphy Family Electric to get this taken care of.

The lowly home clothes dryer performs its work day in and day out without much thanks. Until it breaks down, and you need to tackle dryer repair.

Common Problems Leading to Dryer Repair

The #1 problem for most dryer issues is a clogged dryer vent.

Be sure to clean the lint trap with every load, vacuum out the lint area inside the dryer, and annually disconnect the dryer vent pipe to clean it out. 

Other common problems:

  • Faulty timer
  • Malfunctioning terminal block
  • Balky motor
  • Broken drum belt
  • Worn-out roller
  • Bad temperature switch
  • Broken thermostat
  • Bad start switch

If you read that list and have no idea what part is what, use this list of dryer repair services near you to contact a top pro. On the other hand, most dryer parts are available through the internet, so you may be able to handle repairs yourself. That brings up an important question:

Do It Myself or Hire a Pro Near Me?

Get professional repair help if in doubt. Most of us cannot handle DIY dryer repairs.

But if you are handy, you can attempt to handle some dryer repairs yourself. Remember most people end up doing more damage to their appliance when they attempt DIY repairs. Here are a few tips:

  • Always remember to turn off circuit breakers or disconnect fuses before poking around.
  • For many repair problems, a multi-meter, screwdrivers, nut drivers or an adjustable wrench may get your appliance up and drying again. 
  • Parts diagrams and owner's manuals are available online.
  • Many forums offer tips on parts replacement.
  • Of course, know your dryer brand and specific model numbers before ordering parts online, as many are not returnable. 
  • Start with the easiest, least intrusive repairs before disassembling your machine.
