Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
The dryer has stopped heating several times lately and I have reset the trip fuse on the lower front of the unit. I have installed a complete new vent tube (rigid plastic ) and vacuumed the inside lint trap inside the drum and under the bottom of the tub while the front panel was off. Now all the lights are flashing in a sequence from side to side in sequensial order and will not stop. I have turned off the circuit breaker and waited for 60 seconds but no cigar. I am stumped.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Dryer won't heat
Since I just had a repair man out to look at mine, there are two screws--one at the front of each side just under the lid. When you remove them you can pop the top up. That exposes two more screws, one at the top of each side of the front assembly. Remove them, and pull the front off.

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.

Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.

This is a situation that you need to be very careful with. It sounds like you have a grounded heating element. If this is the case, then the current can be running through the dryer's frame and can cause electrical shock. Keep the dryer unplugged and check the heating element for continuity. If it has none, replace the heating element. BE CAREFUL. Hope this helped and best wishes.

my Fisher Paykel auto sensor dryer keeps stopping and beeping, i have to stop it and and re start.
I had the same problem. I took it off the wall and vacuumed up all the lint from everywhere including around the back and including taking off the back and vacuuming everything I could reach inside. I then used a damp cloth to get rid of the rest of the lint/dust.
I thought I was wasting my time but guess what, the problem has gone.
