Causes of breakdowns of dryers
Experts identify several factors due to which the dryer may fail:
Violation of the rules of operation. Here it is worth noting a whole range of aspects.
Firstly, people often overload the apparatus with clothes. The characteristics of dryers always indicate the maximum load for cotton items. Jeans, wool, synthetics weigh more, so the load limit must be reduced (by 2-3 kg). If you do not take this nuance into account, you will systematically overload the motor, drive belt or drum rollers, due to which these components will fail. Also, clothes that are too wet (in which there is an excess of moisture) should not be placed in dryers. They are heavier (and here we return to the first point); in addition, the machine will dry such things for too long, and this is fraught with overheating of the motor, heating element or even the drum.
Careless operation. This moment is very similar to the previous one, but has its own subtleties. In this case, we are talking about sudden slamming of the door (the latch mechanism may break), strong pressing of the buttons (the sensor or gasket of the physical button may fail). It is also extremely important to carefully insert the clothes into the drum. If you throw everything at once, your wardrobe items can get tangled (and even the blades will not help). If a lump forms in the drum, the load will be uneven. This will lead to imbalance and rapid wear of the belt, as well as the rollers.
Bad care. Any (even the most expensive) dryer requires periodic maintenance. In condensing models, it is imperative to clean the moisture collection container. It is also necessary to periodically clean the fluff filter. If the design includes an outlet hose, it must also be periodically disconnected and flushed. Otherwise, your car will be clogged with structural elements, which will cause malfunctions.
Natural wear. Usually this reason affects the outlet elements of the dryer: a hose for draining or draining condensate, a pump for pumping out moisture. Also, over time, some parts of the motor may fail.
Manufacturing defects. From this reason, no one is insured at all. The car can be delivered to you with a variety of defects: the door does not close well, one of the sensors does not work, one or more controls do not respond to commands. In order to avoid such troubles, it is better to buy high-quality models from manufacturers with a good reputation (we indicated them at the beginning of the review). In addition, when buying, you must be given a guarantee.
