Dryer won't run, but hot air blow and humming when turned on
Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt.It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time.
 It will take care of your problem

    Try first unplugging the power cable for ten minutes, so to reset the appliance.

    Check inside if the drain hose is blocked or there is water inside the machine, in this case free the drain system from dirt.

    Check also that there is water coming from the power supply.

    Restart the machine, and see if you get the noise again, in this case let me know, it can be a faulty control assembly, or a problem with the motor or drain pump.

    Sorry I posted here the solution for a washing machine problem that was opened elsewere.

    In your case , do the unplug , as suggested by boscia, check the lint trap, as suggested already, and clean the lint filter.

    If you still get humming noise and the machine does not spin, a technician should take it apart and check the belt and the motor, if they are fine, then it is a faukty control assembly.

Machine stopped while running i fear an unbalanced load, no power ,this is an elba top load.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

How do you get the front panel off a fisher paykel dryer to replace the felt seal


my F&P front load dryer would not start - it would hum when I pushed the start button. After trial and error taking the top off, then the front panel with the door I found the lint exhaust was completely blocked. After doing a thorough cleaning of the dryer and putting it back together it worked! (note: DE60 Elba dryer)

My fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on


I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.

Squealing Fisher Paykel Dryer DE05-US2


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

When I turn on our Fisher Paykel DE06 dryer it just hums.


You most likely have a broken belt. If not it is the main motor.
