Question about Fisher and Paykel Dryers
I have just bought a 2nd hand F&P dryer (model ED54-F) which at first seemed to be operational. However, now that I have it at home it is apparent that something is wrong with it as it will only run for about 30 seconds before stopping and making a beeping noise. I thought that this was a part of its humidity sensing function, but it still does this with a load of wet washing, and also when it is set to just run for one hour without the sensor. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be, and even better, any solutions?
Thanks a lot!

the biggist problem with dryers and drying is the outside vent being plugged. next thing is it gas or electric. electric i would think cycling thermostat. gas would be coils or thermostat. this is asuming you do have heat

dryer's have a long belt that runs around the drum. a common culprit is an idler pulley on the belt tensioner. you can take off the front of the dryer and oil it for a temp fix. it will probably need to be replaced

Entering the Diagnostic Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Auto Dry down button, then press the Power
The dryer is now in level 0 of the diagnostic mode. After initial entry into the
diagnostic mode, the Start/Pause button operates the dryer as normal. Press
the Auto Dry up or down buttons to scroll through the fault levels.
There are several levels of diagnostics, most of which are used in
development and production. These levels may bring on various LEDs, but
the level of use for the service technician is that of the last fault.
To enter the last fault diagnostics, enter the diagnostic mode as described
above, then press the Auto Dry up button three times. The last fault will be
displayed on the drying progress LEDs.
The manual is here

It's most likely one of the heat/humidity sensor tubes that needs to be replaced. This has happened twice to my T494C in 12 years. Miele (or your dealer) will come out and replace it for a cost. Do NOT leave wet clothes (or semi-dry clothes) in the dryer for any length of time when the dryer is not operating. Apparently this is one of the problems.
