Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

F&P ED56 Got a F&P ED56 had a load in it and it stopped lights flashing wouldn't go, work out that the capacitor was the problem so replaced it. But now when I turn it on it is fine spinning clockwise but when it spins anti-clockwise it makes a hell of a noise if you spin by hand it is all fine, is there any advise you could give me please. Thanks, Deb

Glad to got it taken care of. Next time be a little more careful, I usually recommend using a leaf blower.

Could be the door switch or temp sensor. To check the door switch put pressure against the door and see if it stops. Check the slot the door hits to see if there is anything loose in there.

F&P ED56 has 2 problems

Yes, (2) certainly sounds like the start/run capacitor has failed. You will see it has a split or bulging case, or a displaced end cap. Replace it with one of the same voltage rating and capacitance.

I can't advise you on (1)

My F&P ED56 dryer just hums when it is turned on. The lights come on and it hums, but it doesn't turn or blow air. We have checked the belt (that is OK), the drum can spin by hand, there is no lint...

sounds like it maybe the motor, here are other reasons the drum won't turn and how to open the dryer. Good Luck Tim:

Fisher ED56 dryer wont turn off!

HI, this will occur if the timer control module or control board has failed. replacing the timer or control will fix this issue.

My fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on

I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.
