Does it have a heating element


Yes, as with all dryers, this unit has a heating element. This site: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Fisherpaykel-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DEGX196010B/3068/0151200/P0606083/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= has a diagram of the dryer including the pair of heating elements. See part 3 in this Dryer Base diagram.

I hope this helps.

Dryer wont heat. we have cleaned out all the lint, replaced the top thermostat and are frustrated. seems like it heats for a couple minutes then nothing.


Sounds like a bad heating element . Many dryers use a dual coil setup ( one coil for low to med, both for high heat). Also check your dryer discharge vent. A blocked vent will not allow the humidity to escape, which will result in your clothes not drying or taking multiple cycles to dry. Turn the dryer on, and find the vent discharge on the outside of your home and just hold your hand there. If you do not feel substantial airflow you have a blocked vent or blocked discharge tube. But from what you described, I would bet on either a bad heating element or failed heating element relay.

Where is the reset button on a fisher & paykel dryer model DEGX1, also where is the heating element located?


Always disconnect power first and take the front off of the dryer and locate 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. This should fix your problem, here is a website if you need further assistance, Good Luck Tim:

Dryer not getting hot


Hello there:
f your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring f you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) c5f4c5f.jpg

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 and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer Stays Warm


Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.
