Fisher pakel will run wont heat have hit reset button and will work fine for a couple of loads then does the same thing I hit reset button and will work again


9 times out of 10 the element is bad, it sounds like you have the true top load dryer. in the cage that has the reset-able tstat, there is two element packs. half of it is burned, and it is heating alot near that tstat, making it trip. Take out the element packs, and let me know how it turned out.

What could be causing inside of the drum of my AD55 F&P dryer to very hot?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Blower Wheel A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Felt Seal Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.


Cycling Thermostat Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Air Flow Problem Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Heating Element Assembly A defective heating element assembly can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element assembly to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

My Fisher & Payel smart load dryer is not


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which ismounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.

Thanks

My Fisher Paykel dryer runs as normal just doesnt put out any heat.


Hi,
Usually when an electric dryer runs but stops heating, the heating element has failed and needs replacing. I don't know if you are a do-it-yourself type, but you can get the model/make/serial information and obtain the correct element at your appliance parts store.
I hope this helps... Good luck.

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.

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.
