Calls to service dryers are one of the most common in the repair industry. Many of these repairs have simple solutions that you should check before calling for service. Generally, most people become concerned about dryer failure when clothes are not drying quickly or at all. If this happens to you, the first step is to check that your dryer is correctly set. Many customers have called for repair only for the repairperson to indicate that they had their dryer set to 'air dry' instead of 'heat.' The next step is to check the lint trap and vent. You need to clean the lint trap before you put each wet load into your dryer. A lint trap that is cleaned infrequently may allow lint to move into the vent pipe, which can further reduce dryer efficiency. 

You can try leveling the dryer if it dries clothes effectively but is noisy. You can do this by placing a level on top of your dryer and adjusting the leveling screws on the feet of your dryer until the level reads correctly. After this, rotate the level ninety degrees and repeat the process.
