How long should a dryer last?

Your gas or electric dryer should last 12 to 18 years. If your dryer is getting older or if it needs extensive repairs, your Candu Pro will let you know if replacing the appliance may be better in the long run than repairing it. It may be a better idea financially to replace a faulty, older appliance that may need additional repairs in the future.

Dryer Maintenance

Maintaining your gas or electric dryer properly can help it last longer, and it can keep your family safe, too. All types of dryers have a tumbler, or rotating metal drum, which circulates heated air through wet clothes to evaporate the moisture from them. Electric dryers use electricity to heat the air, while gas dryers use natural gas. Most dryers vent hot air and moisture through a venting system to the outside of the house; it’s important to keep that ductwork cleaned and maintained to prevent fires.
