Common broken dryer symptoms
There are common dryer issues that we see all the time. One of these things can be the dryer isn’t turning on, for example. There might be a safety switch triggered that is stopping the dryer from powering on. This could be because the air vent was clogged or the dryer inside got too hot due to having too much laundry in it. There are internal breakers that prevent it from starting when these sorts of things happen. This is for your safety, which stops the dryer from overheating and burning down the house. These breakers are typically inside the dryer and usually easy to fix and fairly inexpensive.
Another common issue is that the dryer won’t stay shut. This could be due to a latch not working properly. Or is the door being broken in some way.
The dryer isn’t heating up is another common issue. This could be because the pilot light is out, should you have a gas dryer. Or there is a safety breaker out somewhere that isn’t telling the dryer’s heater to turn on. And, a very common issue is the drum is not rolling. Older dryers had a dryer belt that is transforming the rotation of the motor to the drum.

Should you repair or replace your dryer?
We live in a society that just replaces everything. However, you could save some money by repairing what you have in most cases. If it is an expensive fix such as a computer module, then replacing makes sense. But, most things are repairable and you would save both money and the environment by fixing what you have.
