Our Dryer Repair Service
Many dryer problems can be fixed with little more than your own smarts and the unit’s operation manual. A blown fuse could be replaced easily, but anything along the lines of gas valve coils, heating elements, and drum bearings would require professional finesse from one of Sears' thousands of on-call dryer repair technicians. Our local technicians know all the major dryer brands like Kenmore, LG, Samsung, and Whirlpool - and even some you don’t. Schedule a repair appointment now.
