Washing clothes can be a cumbersome task by itself, but then, things can get worse if you can't dry the washed clothes properly. Thankfully, we don't live in those times anymore and with the existence of dryers, things are so much easier.

Pochon invented the first clothes dryer in France in 1800. The concept of the first dryer was very similar to what we are used to today (heat and tumble). Pochon's model - a circular metal drum pierced with holes and a handle used for a crank – required clothes to be hand-wrung and placed inside the drum. The drum would then be cranked to rotate over an open fire. The process smelled bad and would burn clothes when it wasn't drying them. Before appliances for drying clothes became electric in the 1920s, the chore was attempted by passing wet clothes between hand-cranked rollers that might squeeze some of the water from the fabrics. At least it was a step up from merely beating the washed clothes against a rock in the nearby stream.Lamp-radiator room heaters and, less frequently, electric fans, were used in some homes for drying clothes early in the century. It was an improvement over merely hanging wet clothes near a fireplace, but not much safer. By 1910, electrical power drove the washer and wringer. In 1936, an electric clothes dryer was patented.There was another improvement by J. Ross Moore in 1938, when he invented a tumble dryer. But buyers didn't give it much of a tumble before the 1950s. Then the combination washer-dryer and the separate units became popular. There were electrical spin dryers used in commercial laundries and in institutions such as military, but not in many households. On the home front, the manual wringers were still used throughout World War I and II and nearly into the 1960s.
Here is a list of common dryers problems for you to identify, so you'll know just when to call us.
When a clothes dryer breaks down, one of the most common problems is a broken drive belt. The symptoms are a loud banging noise, followed by a drum that stops turning. For such a big problem, the solution is pretty simple. The hardest part is gaining access to the drum inside the dryer cabinet. While all brands are different, the process is nearly the same. If you don’t run into any trouble and have the replacement part on hand, the job should take about two hours.
If that seems like a lot of work, you can give iFix Appliances experts a call so they can fix it for you!
