If you have the same I do then it's the circuit breaker on the heating element. You have to take the front of the dryer off: Two screws on the top under the caps. Then lift the top alittle and you'll see the two screws on the front top sheet metal. The front then can be removed by pulling each side out and forward. The orange button is all the way at the bottom. Push and you'll hear it click.

    I've had the same problem for a few months. I found some great advice on this website about a reset button on a thermostat at the bottom front of the dryer when you take the off. That worked for a while. I reset the button and disassembled the lint filter and vacuumed every time - but the problem still came back. Finally it wouldn't work all - so we dried our clothes on the low heat setting - which still worked.

    I finally broke down and went here http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/i... and bought the dryer heater kit - cost me $108 and I bought the service manual for $10. It wasn't difficult to install - I used one screw driver, and it probably took me about an hour - because I wasn't in a hurry, and I had some experience taking the damn apart to reset the thermostat.

    When I took it apart to install the new elements I noticed that the small element was toast - completely burned up. So moral of the story you can probably reset the thermostat for a while and run the dryer on low heat but if you do it more than once go ahead and buy the kit.

    Hopefully this fix will stick..... by the way great website

I have the same problem. Again! I have cleaned the filter, replaced the filter, made sure the duct is clear. The unit has been vacuumed so many times that it is now cleaner than when new! I have installed the dryer heater kit to attempt to fix a very substandard design. Still back to the same problem of constant tripping of the breaker. Calls to Fisher & Paykel have be useless. They have offered not explanation nor help. Needless to say this was our first and last Fisher & Paykel product.

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...
