Tumble Dryer Parts that most commonly break

Tumble Dryer Timers are found behind the control panel and are connected to the control knob. These are used to set a period of time for your Tumble dryer to be working.

Tumble Dryer bearing pads are what the drum rests against whilst it is spinning, over time these bearing pads can become warn down. If your Tumble dryer is making an unusual noise whilst the drum is spinning, then it is possible that you will need to replace your bearing pads.

Tumble Dryer Fans are connected to the motor and they are often described as looking like hamster wheels. These fan wheels are used to circulate airflow through the dryer. The fan wheel is made of plastic and can crack or break over time, and if the fan wheel isn’t working efficiently then your clothes will take longer to dry.

Tumble Dryer Thermal cut out is a safety feature on the heating element, the cut out will fail if the heating element gets too hot. Sometimes the cut outs will only be available with the Heating element.

Tumble Dryer pulleys can be used to turn the belt, which then turns the drum. It can also be used to ease tension on the belt. The pulley can fail by snapping or wearing down.

A tumble dryer belt is used to connect the motor with the drum when the motor spins it turns the belt and this in turn, turns the drum. Because the drum spins at such a fast speed the belt is one of the most common spare parts to fail on a tumble dryer. You will know if you need a new belt if the you find the dryer

Tumble Dryer heating elements are used to create hot air within the drum. The heating element is a common spare part to fail on a tumble dryer. The element can be found at the back of the drum with two thermostats attached to it. If your clothes are staying wet in the the dryer and the not heating up then it is likely that the heater has failed

Tumble Dryer knobs are used to select between different programs. This spare part can often break accidentally, more often than not it is the shaft on the control knob that breaks and this is a really easy part to fix yourself. It just requires you to swap it over.

There are different types of door locks on tumble dryers some just work as a catch and latch system where as others might have an electrical interlock. The catch and latch systems are the most common, and are also the easiest to fit yourself. If your door wont stay shut on your tumble dryer then it is likely that you will need to replace your door lock.

Tumble Dryer motor is the part that powers the drum via the belt and tension pulley. The motor spins, which is connected to the belt, the belt then turns the drum. If your drum isn’t spinning and there is no noise then it is likely that the motor has failed.

Tumble Dryer door handles can snap over time, there are usually a couple of parts that come with the door handle which include the handle spring and pecker. If the door on your tumble dryer won’t stay closed then it is advised to check that the pecker hasn’t snapped off the handle
