It is January 27, 2017. We bought our washer and dryer on July 6, 2016. I found that the laundry was taking too long to dry. The towels were taking 3 hours to dry and clothing was taking 2 hours to dry. I phoned the dealer in town and because it’s still under warranty they would send the repairman out. The retail clerk said it would be 3 weeks before the repairman would be back here.
Today is February 22, 2017. I phoned today and they said the repairman will be here on March 2. I was also told to turn off the breaker and put it back on. That sometimes one of the breakers will go but not the other one. It is a double breaker. So the dryer ends up with half the electricity. I said okay I will try it and let you know. I think it has to be the element in the dryer.
Today is February 24, 2017. I talked with the service clerk again, I was told to check the chute outside to see if it was plugged. It has never happened that a dryer I owned would be plugged. The chute has a grate across the bottom and it was totally plugged with lint. I unplugged it and put it back on. I was told it’s there so mice do not enter through the chute into the house.
Well I was happy to have the dryer working properly again. I wish I had thought to google the problem, then I wouldn’t have wasted the electricity.
