Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
Turned my dryer on today, heats great but started smelling. Found to not be turning the drum. Sound like its going but the clothes are not being tossed. Its not a dual direction. I think it turns clock-wise. I unscrewed the top and flipped it and there is one thin belt tightly in place around the drum. There was some type of fiber cord found wrapped around a corne area and it looks like that slipped from under the front rim of the drum. I don't know if it was once one piece around the entire rim or not. Its not now, if it was.
Usually the belt is a single piece that wraps around the entire drum. The fact that you smelled something and that you feel the clothes are not being tossed tells me that the belt was slipping on the pulley of the motor that drives the drum. This will heat up the belt causing the smell. If the belt gets too loose, this will happen. I'd replace the belt, and I think you'll be back in action.
Let me know what happens. Please rate accordingly.
