Fisher & Paykel ED56 random stops + wont work upside down

Hi all

I have an ED56 that works most of the time when sitting on level ground, the right way up. However, more frequently it just stops and flashes the "start / pause" light. Clothes are far from dry.

Purchased mounting brackets and installed upside down onto wall. The machine is plumb in both directions and now it just wont start. Flashes the start / pause at me, wont go at all, or occasional will do half a revolution if I keep pressing the start button.

Any ideas?

Thanks

    Reply to myself here....after more investigation it is the door sensor...not sure how it works, but basically if you apply pressure to the door it will work fine. Let it go and the door gradually moves out like 1 - 2mm and it cuts out. Presently wedged a stick of 4x2 between a door and the door...goes great.

    How do i fix this please?

    Thank you.

Entering the Diagnostic Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.

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

Replace (repair) the exhaust sensor this looks like a transistor with the middle leg cut off. it is situated below the lint filter but can only accessed by removing the back panel, top panel (or rear screws to allow the removal of the drum). drum and then front panel to remove the connector from the mainboard. If you follow the exhaust tube once the back is off you will see a single phillips head screw that is the sensor. check the wires to the circuit board are not broken or dry joints or just replace it. sorry i had a spare machine i scavenged from to fix my problem so i dont know where to buy new.

SOURCE: Dryer Problem

Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.

Could be the door switch or temp sensor. To check the door switch put pressure against the door and see if it stops. Check the slot the door hits to see if there is anything loose in there.

Yes, (2) certainly sounds like the start/run capacitor has failed. You will see it has a split or bulging case, or a displaced end cap. Replace it with one of the same voltage rating and capacitance.

I can't advise you on (1)

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.

Dryer tries to start - then stops and beeps PLEASE HELP


Check the exhaust hose. If the dryer isn't venting properly it will either stop or the heater will turn off and the clothes will remain wet. If the hose is not clogged check the wall vent tube.
