Noisy Dryer Takes Too Long To Dry – How To Fix


If your dryer seems to take forever to dry your laundry and it’s also noisy, you might have a broken or obstructed blower wheel.

If you hear a high-pitched whine, rattling, or your laundry is not dry at the end of the cycle, check your blower wheel.
