Question about Fisher and Paykel Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer takes MUCH longer to dry clothes than it should

Fisher and Paykel dryer worked great for months and now seems to take way to long to dry a load. Like hours vs 45 minutes. It is blowing heat from the exhaust and when the lid is opened the clothes are still wet during the cycle. When it does finally stop the clothes are dry. What can cause it to change slowly over time as it has? The lint catch is cleaned every load and sometimes during a load..thoughts?

Thanks for the help in advance!

My dryer will not shut down or advance when it is in the Automatic Perm. Press mode. Diagnosed with faulty timer, replaced yesterday for ~$300 and the dryer ran all night long. Is there a "dryness sensor"...


I have found that the permanent press cycle will continue to roll the clothes around on a rest and dry schedule until you take the clothes out and manually shut off the dryer. The idea seems to be to keep the clothes from wrinkling when sitting in a still dryer. I think that this is the way it was meant to work, but I am no expert, just another owner of a Fisher Paykel dryer.

Auto dry not cutting off when clothes are dry

Hi.

There is no reset circuit.

Parts that must be tested are high limit thermostat and timer board.
The timer board is replaced if it is visibly faulty, or if there is no problem elsewhere.
The high limit located near to the element is tested reading impedance with a multimeter set at Rx1. If there is no continuity , the thermostat must be replaced.

Before testing parts check the lint filter, and ensure that air ducts are clean.

Regards.
