Clothes dryer repair cost and price of the clothes dryer parts depends on type of the dryer. There are 4 clothes dryer types:
VENTED CLOTHES DRYERS
Vented clothes dryers are most commonly used and simplest of all dryer types.
They are very simple appliances, consisting of metal box with a door, stainless steel or coated metal drum,
connected to a motor with a belt, heating element and few other electric control and timing parts.
Vented clothes dyers are quite cheap to buy, but quite expensive to run.
They are best option if you dry clothes occasionally, or need them quickly dried for the school or work.
If you need to use them frequently, they need to be placed in the well ventilated laundries.
Vented clothes dryer is not so heavy, so it can be wall mounted easy in order to save the space in the wash room.
As they are simple machines, vented clothes dryers are relatively maintenance free.
Back venting models require ducting hoses to take the hot and humid air outside of the laundry.
CONDENSER CLOTHES DRYERS
Condenser clothes dryers use a heat exchanger to condense moisture from the exhaust air
and either collect it in a reservoir or drain it away.
They are more expensive than vented dryers, but also more complex and robust. So they are quite difficult
and some models almost impossible to wall mount. If you have front loading washing machine, they can be placed on top of it.
Condenser clothes dryers are quite expensive to run and they have longer drying cycles, but they are gentler on clothes.
HEAT PUMP CLOTHES DRYERS
Heat pump condenser dryers use the same heat exchange principles as a reverse-cycle air conditioner to heat the air they use to dry your clothes.
This makes them expensive to buy but cheap to run, because by capturing and reusing their heat energy,
they use around 63% less energy than an equivalent-sized vented dryer.
Heat pump dryers don't vent hot air at all, so there's no moisture fogging up your laundry and no hot air.
They are the heaviest of all dryer types, so it could be very difficult to hang them on the wall.
Usually they have large capacity and offer wide range of programs.
Heat pump clothes dryers are most economical option for heavy dryer users, but they are very expensive to buy.
GAS CLOTHES DRYERS
Gas clothes dryers work the same way as conventional dryers, but use natural gas instead of electricity as a heat source.
They're cost effective to run and perform well, but have a higher purchase price and you may need to modify your laundry.
When compared with typical electric vented dryers of a similar size,
a gas dryer will pay for itself in just under eight years when used five times a week.
But you may need to add the installation costs, which will take longer to offset the purchase price
(most people don't have a gas outlet in the laundry and the unit must be ducted to the outside).
