A dryer that’s working properly is a big time saver. Sure, you can hang dry your clothes if you have 12 hours and a lot of extra space, but most of us are accustomed to the efficiency and convenience of our dryer. They’re usually taken for granted until they stop working and home chore efficiency comes to a halt.
A new dryer can cost $400 to $700 depending on the model. The good news is if your dryer stops working it doesn’t mean you need to spend hundreds of dollars on a new one.

- Dryer Won’t Turn On – This could be related to power, the terminal block, door switch, thermostat, start switch, or thermal fuse.
