Don't know your specific machine but many are so constructed that the back panel is the only one that can be removed separately; the sides and front are lifted up and off after a few screws are removed from the back and pehaps from a lip at the base on the sides and front.

I have a fisher & Paykel electric dryer. D-DE62T27D that works but won't dry. Any solutions? Thanks Rick


Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

Dryer heating elements come in various shapes and sizes. They are all strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to heat and dry the clothes in your dryer.
Once you have gained access to your dryer's heating element, set your multimeter to the R x 1 resistance scale. Touch each meter probe and to one end of the element. If you receive a reading of infinite resistance, then your heating element is no longer functioning properly and you will have to replace it.

My DEGX1 WILL ONLY AIR DRY NO HEAT ...VENTS ARE CLEAN


Heating element is probably fine. I had this problem repeatedly shortly after I purchased the machine. Remove the screws on the top of the machine by where you load it (1 on each side). Lift top front up a few inches to allow for the front panel to be removed or leaned forward to access front of inside of machine. After front panel is out of the way, locate the red button. Push it. You have reset the fuse for the heating element and the dryer will now produce heat.

This will likely happen repeatedly. Mine was happening abouut once a week. Eventually, I discovered that FP dryers are very sensitive and that they will only push their exhaust so far. Anything more than about 20 feet and the machine will think the line is blocked and will trip the fuse on the heating element. I purchased a part from Lowes (do not recall what it is called) that is essentially a self contained dryer vent. Its a small box that hangs on the wall right next to the dryer. Run the exhaust tube into the box which is has an inch of water in it. water collects the lint and the hot air escapes from the vents on the top of the box.

Never had the problem again.

Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?


I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

My fisher paykel DEGX1 won't heat up. everything else works fine.


If you have the same I do then it's the circuit breaker on the heating element. You have to take the front of the dryer off: Two screws on the top under the caps. Then lift the top alittle and you'll see the two screws on the front top sheet metal. The front then can be removed by pulling each side out and forward. The orange button is all the way at the bottom. Push and you'll hear it click.

Won't heat


Not sure how old your dryer is but earlier models had the element around the door.
As a rookie you would have to remove the rear cover, the drum, the belt around the drum and then you would sse the element held in place by clips on the inside of the front panel. The thermostat would placed not too far away. I have just purchase a new dryer (very recent model) and was told the element is located away from the door. I guess I won't know until I have a problem with mine.

As usual, heed the warnings about electrical appliances and the risk of electrical shock.
Always unplug the appliance from the power point as you can still get a stock on the neutral connection even if the swith on the power point is turned off. (tunrs of the active connection only).
