Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Heating element I came on here and learned how to reset the reset button which helped for a couple months but now it's not heating at all, so I assume that's the element. Can anyone tell me where the element is, so I could order the part and replace it myself? Also should I just order it directly from the company? My husband is deployed so I really need some good instructions/advice. Thanks so much Nichole

    Wow thank you so much for your helpful information, I really appreciate it! One other question is will the thermostat and other parts I need to replace with the new kit be in that same area?
    Thanks again

Hi Nichole, welcome to FixYa.com

The heater kit you need is a part number 395711.
You can get them here:
http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=112&productid=32

If you have been able to get to the reset, you are 90% of the way to the heater elements, they are located inside the aluminum "box" that the reset-able t-stat is mounted on.You take two screws out and the whole heater box can be pulled forward. Then you remove the two wires that are on the backside for the elements and it will come all the way out so you can remove the top half of the element box and switch out the elements. The kit comes with new thermostats as well, be sure to replace all the parts that come with the kit.
You can do it, it's not that hard,

Heater, 230V./2000W.-d.32mm.
The heating element, which is encased inside a tube, is used to heat the washing water. The heating element is not activated during the drying phase. Inserted into the delivery side of the washing pump and coupled with the duct which directs water to the upper spray arm.
Built-in safety devices: Two thermostats
First thermostat: auto-reset bi-metal thermostat calibrated to 98°C and connected in series to one branch of the heating element.
Second thermostat: manual-reset fuse calibrated to 206°C and connected in series to the second branch of the heating element. If this fuse intervenes, the heating element is disconnected definitively.

Why isn't it working?


The heating element may be protected by a thermal fuse which is opening up, then resetting after cooling down.

My Crosley oven has a new element and timer and still will not heat up


It sounds like you need to replace the burner receptacle, in either the broiler or the bottom oven burner( heating element) or both. When it exploded it burned the contacts in the heating element.

Where is the reset button on a fisher & paykel dryer model DEGX1, also where is the heating element located?


Always disconnect power first and take the front off of the dryer and locate 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. This should fix your problem, here is a website if you need further assistance, Good Luck Tim:

I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

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.
