Brief Explanation

What Was The Issue With This Nearby Customer's Kenmore Dryer?

We helped out a local customer who was having some concerning issues regarding the state of her Kenmore clothing dryer.

She'd noticed that the machine had been rattling for some time on and off, but recently she heard it acting up even more severely than usual.

After she gave us a ring and we arrived to her home and began our diagnostic, we knew almost immediately right off the bat that the issues was involved with the pulley system.

Specifically, their unit had a faulty idler pulley which was no longer rolling as smoothly and gently as it should have been.

This was a fairly straightforward repair that we were able to accomplish in next to no time, but to the untrained or inexperienced eye, a dryer pulley repair can be a living nightmare to try and resolve if one hasn't ever done so before.

Give us a ring to help assist with your dire needs relating to Dryer Pulley Repairs in Staten Island, NY.

1. What's The Purpose Of Idler Pulleys In Dryers?


An Idler Pulley is a large spring washer mechanism made out of hard plastic which helps to keep the drive belt (the actual belt that turns the dryer around) tight and secure.

If this belt is too loose, then the dryer's drum isn't able to rotate properly and thus is often lacking in the very purpose of its presence which involves drying clothes.

A common sign that the idler pulley may be acting faulty is if a consistent squealing or squeaking is being heard.

If left to its own devices and ignored for long enough, a distraught idler pulley mechanism could lead to misalignment of your dryer's drum, lead to the belt breaking or a variety of other undesirable issues which could result within the inner workings of your dryer.

It always pays to address you dryer repair needs sooner than later, especially if you may be experiencing problems with a faulty idler pulley.

4. What Are Some Other Common Dryer Issues?


Dryer Won't Tumble - If the main drum of the dryer isn't spinning, it could likely be a broken dryer belt or a faulty pulley mechanism (such as in this specific customer's case). While such belts and pulley systems aren't outrageously expensive repairs, they can be a pain to replace at times since you have the feel and loop the belt around the inner rotary mechanism often without being able to directly see it. Other culprits could be the dryer's motor or the activation switch as well.

Dryer Won't Even Turn On - A busted built-in-fuse or door switch can cause this occurrence to happen in some cases. Sometimes, a door switch can even be locked or jammed into having the "Off" position always active, which isn't good.

Dryer's Not Heating Up Right - If it's not an accidental setting mixup, it may be an electronic ignition issue. If this occurs, it can be very difficult to resolve without the help of a professional appliance repair specialist, such as ourselves.

Dryer's Buring Through Your Clothing - This doesn't happen often, but as soon as someone experiences it once, they aren't eager to give it a go again anytime soon. This could be a combination of a multitude of issues ranging from the rollers, the glides within the dryer or perhaps even the seal of the main drum.
