Clothes Dryer Repair
Before you call Appliance Repair Pros San Diego for repair, there are a couple of things you must examine to see if you can determine the issue with your dryer.
Is your dryer getting hotter than normal? Take a look at the lint filter. Clean it out, and start up the dryer and allow it to heat up once again. If it is still getting too hot, then let it cool, disconnect it, and pull the dryer out from the wall. Examine the vent hose for any lint buildup. Make sure to clean everything out before reattaching the vent hose to your wall connection.
