Why is washing machine not working?

If your washer fills with water but doesn’t agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.)

Can clothes be too wet for dryer?

Some people figure that they can shove a ton of wet clothes into the dryer, believing that “the more the merrier” pertains to dryers. This is a big mistake. Not only will the clothes end up wrinkled, damp, or even still wet, it can overwork the drum, bearings, heating elements and cause the unit to breakdown.

Is it okay to put a soaking wet blanket in the dryer?

Yes. The clothes are wet. The dryer will remove moisture. Dryers are designed to dry clothes that have been through a spin cycle, so this extra weight could be a significant burden on the dryer’s motor.

Can putting dry clothes in the dryer start a fire?

As you know from cleaning out your lint filter, dryers produce very large quantities of lint. Lint can build up on the heating element and in other places inside the dryer, causing it to overheat and possibly catch fire. As a rule, a fire starts from a spark in the machine.
