Broken Dryer

Last modified on May 13th, 2008

My dryer at home basically stopped working a few weeks ago, so I’ve been rotating ever-so-slowly through my wardrobe. My landlord was going to come by and take a look at it, but I don’t think he’s been feeling very well lately. So anyways, considering I’m out of clean clothes and I’m out of clean sheets, I decided to take care of it today. So I’m working from home, waiting for a repair guy to come by and fix it up.

While I’m at it, I’m going to rant about people who play the lottery. I got no problem that you want to play 6-49 all day, but please make some decisions before you get to the counter. It seems like all I do lately is wait for people to decide whether or not they want the Extra, as if it was some monumental decision that will affect their future lives.

** update – the dryer is kaput. Needs to be replaced. Going to go buy new clothes tomorrow I guess.

    I went through maybe 4 months without a dryer because it just wasn’t drying. I was too lazy to really find out what was wrong. When I did, there wasn’t anything wrong with the dryer, but that the duct might have been blocked (bird’s nests, yes, plural). Called a company that cleans vents. They used a high pressure hose and managed to blow out a relatively large chunk of bird’s nest. After that, the dryer worked just peachy fine! 🙂

    Eva is correct. Have had the same problems, bird’s nest or even excess lint before. hey is there no laundry near you? Seems cheaper than buying new cloths. Or,go buy a new dryer, take it when you leave. if your next place doesn’t need one, sell it to me for cheap, i am always looking for appliances for my suites lol. Buy energy star you can mail in to BC Hydo get $150 back.

    Hehe, you make me giggle Duane. Buy one of those stands for hanging clothes on to dry? Probably cheaper then buying new clothes!

    It’s a fairly old dryer, and verdict was that the bearings in the motors have gone. It’s pretty expensive to replace the motor, so I’ve been told it should just be replaced. Good news is that I’m a renter, so it’ll be replaced and it won’t cost me anything.
