SOURCE: 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.

Thermostats, the dryer temperature control switches, are controlled by the temperature inside the dryer or by the heat of the motor. One or more thermostats on the panel can be adjusted to control the temperature in the dryer. Operating thermostats sometimes stick, causing control problems. These thermostats are usually positioned near the exhaust duct bulkhead or the fan housing of the dryer. Remove the back panel of the dryer to get at them. 

Before you make any checks, try tapping the housing of the thermostats lightly with the handle of a screwdriver. This may jar the contacts loose. Temperature control switches are located behind the dryer control panel, and the panel must be removed for switch testing or replacement. Here's how to test and replace the thermostat:

Step 1: To check the control panel thermostat, make sure power is off to the dryer. Test the thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 2:
 If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 3: To check an operating thermostat, first make absolutely certain that the power to the dryer has been turned off and the dryer is cool. Then disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat. Test an operating thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale; clip one probe to each terminal of the thermostat. Disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat so that the meter won't give a false reading. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

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

SOURCE: 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.

Aerosmart dg62t27dw2 belt squeeking and making clothes stink


Your belt is not on the pulley correctly. You will likely need to purchase a new belt as the damage has likely been done. Remove back cover and then remove casing (video on youtube) Replace belt. You may be able to fix quicker by flipping dryer on side and replacing the belt from the bottom, but it is a tight fit.

Belt squeeking


Dirt builds up in a dryer over time, belts wear and wheels that the drum rolls on can be worn. Once found a pager in a dryer. There is loose change and pencils and... taking the dryer apart, cleaning and lubricating and replacing the belt are maintenance items that are often ignored. Inconvenient, yes. Dirt is the enemy of mechanical equipment and dryers collect dirt and paper and anything left in pockets of clothes. A vacuuming and general clean and lube helps. Check for free rotation of the drum before and after and make not of the level of resistance with the dryer empty. Some other parts such as the drum wheels may have worn spots. Do it as soon as possible. DIY or a pro. If they let you watch, then you may be able to do some of the lighter work for yourself the next time. Or check out a DIY appliance repair book.

That is a fault for the "Door Actuator Open Circuit". You may have not had the door closed completely and when you opened the door to check it out, you closed it completely. Another possibility is the sensor module is going bad.

There is a drum bearing kit which could have failed or also the belt drive pulleys could be squeeking.

Best to get them replaced.

Dryer runs does not heat


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

The dryer squeeks when the drying. I have turned the drum manually, and I don't hear the noise, it's only when it is turned on and turning that way.


the belt tensioner pulley has a roller with a bearing in it causing this squeak. greasing the bearing may help or a replacement will work even better

Small black streaks on clothes dryer is 3 years old services 2 people average use


Black streaks from the dryer are usually and indication that your belt is fraying and needs to be replaced. The rubber from the belt getting into the drum with the clothes could be causing your issue.
