Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
I am getting ready to order a heating element but after doing some research on this forum I am not 100% sure that the heating element is the problem. The machine is taking double the time to dry, even then I have some items of clothing that come out very damp (Often it is the small items instead of the heavier bigger items) and when I remove the clothes they are not even hot but luke warm. I have vacuumed the vent and filter even removing the round piece that holds the lint bucket. Any suggestions?
I have had the same problem with my dryer for about 2 months. I bought a heater kit upgrade on eBay, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220334963461 , and installed it myself this past weekend. Easy to install for a do-it-yourselfer. About 6 screws to remove, lay the dryer on the back and its all right in front of you. Dryer is working like it is new again.

If its turning fine, and there is no lint, it could be the resistor block or thermostat is faulty, this is often cheap compared to the heating element.
