Our Reviews

The weather in the UK is seldom conducive to drying laundry outdoors, and many of us have no outside space anyway. The alternative is a drying rack cluttering valuable living space – or, a magical tumble dryer!

Yes, most households depend heavily on a tumble dryer to relatively quickly and very easily dry their clothes and linen. It’s all a breeze, until the tumble dryer stops working and your favourite trousers are dripping wet and the kids’ school shirts too damp to wear.

Tumble dryers are probably one of the most hard-working and necessary appliances in a modern household, and when they break down panic can ensue. When disaster strikes, keep calm and call Capital Repairs.

We’ve been in business for more than 35 years, fixing tumble dryers and other household appliances in and around London, covering Middlesex and the Home Counties.

One phone call is all it takes to have us dispatch an expert tumble dryer repair technician to your door to diagnose and fix your ailing appliance.

We fix all makes and models and all types of tumble dryers. It is helpful if you know what type of dryer you have when you call us to report a fault.

  • The most simple type of tumble dryer is a vented dryer. You’ll know if you have one of these because it will have a wide diameter hose attached to vent away. the damp air which has to be placed through a window or a hole in the wall.
  • A condenser tumble dryer collects water vapour in a container which needs emptying regularly.
  • Heat Pump dryers are the most expensive to buy, but cheapest to run. They collect the humid air from the wet clothes, separate out the water vapour into a tank, and pump the dry warm air back into the drum.

Whatever type or brand of tumble dryer you have you’ll get a longer life and better performance from it if you maintain it as recommended by the manufacturer. For instance, clean the lint filter every time you use your tumble dryer; wipe the drum out with white vinegar periodically; and on a condenser dryer empty the water reservoir after each load. Avoid overloading the dryer and ensure that it is positioned in the right place on a level surface.

It’s worth investing a little “TLC” in your tumble dryer – after all it is probably the hardest working occupant of your home! Call Capital Repairs – 0208 226 5377 – when your trusty tumble dryer needs attention, wherever you are in London or Greater London.

Common Tumble Dryer Problems

No matter how well you care for your tumble dryer, there will come a time when a part wears out or becomes damaged and your trusty dryer stops working altogether or develops a problem.

No machine can last forever, but generally if your tumble dryer is less than 10 years old (depending on the type and make) it can be successfully repaired to stay in service for some time. This is a more cost-effective solution than investing in a new tumble dryer every time something goes wrong, especially if you have a more expensive heat pump dryer.

Capital Repairs are honest and trustworthy when it comes to diagnosing problems with tumble dryers. Our technicians will quote you a fair price for repairs, and tell you if they believe the machine is not worth repairing. If your tumble dryer is irreparable we can offer you a replacement tumble dryer from our range at the Euronics store, with free delivery and installation.

If you notice any of the following signs that your tumble dryer is not performing as it should, call us sooner rather than later:

  • Clothes not drying properly. If you notice your tumble dryer is taking longer than usual to dry your clothes it might not require an engineer, it could be something as simple as the link trap needs cleaning, so first check the lint trap and clean it out if necessary. If this doesn’t improve the situation, then do give us a call.
  • Tumble dryer vibrating too much. Very strong vibrations can cause excessive wear on the shock absorbers and cause them to fail prematurely. In some cases, the vibrations could even loosen the motor. It’s definitely time to call one of our service and repair specialists, before damage gets done that might require a more expensive repair.
  • Unusual noises. If your tumble dryer is making a squeaking or grinding noise it should not be ignored or written off as ‘just something old machines do’. The squeaking noise could be the result of mechanical parts rubbing together, causing wear to both. Without proper servicing one or both of those parts could break.
  • Drum slipping or not turning. This one is fairly clear cut and will definitely require an engineer to fix. The drive belt most likely needs replacing.
  • Overheating. This could be down to restricted airflow or a problem with the heating element or thermostat. Be careful – this could be a fire hazard if it is not dealt with.
  • Not heating up enough. If you think your tumble dryer is not creating enough heat to dry your clothes properly that could signal a problem with the heating element. Capital Repairs will be able to run diagnostics on your tumble dryer to determine the nature of the problem.
