Question about Fisher and Paykel DEIX2 Electric Dryer
The dryer used to work, tumble and heat. Recently, the dryer has stopped producing heat while tumbling. We took off the vent hose in the back of the dryer and replaced it with a new one. The screen on the dryer says that the dryer is working properly, but when I opened the lid, the drum was cold. I have turned the dryer on and off, but still no heat. We have called a few places to come look at the dryer, but we are still empty-handed.
The dryer model is DGIX2, intuitive dryer, top load. Please help! -WetClothes
Fist thing to check is if the manual reset on the heater box has tripped. That dryer can be serviced from the front. Also, there is a heater upgrade kit that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts that has several updated parts in it for the top load electric dryers.
There are several things that can cause the reset to pop out. You may have a lint build up behind the shroud where the lint bucket fits.
This is a complicated appliance. You may wish to obtain a service manual for it.
