Dryer shuts off prematurely on Fisher & Paykel DGIX2 model

The dryer shuts off prematurely when on auto. At first, there was lint in the holes on the left side of the drum. I cleaned the lint and checked the vent (it was not clogged), and it seemed to work better, but very soon it did it again. There is no lint in the holes now. This dryer has a feature that automatically scrapes the vent screen and deposits the lint into a "bucket." The holes should never have lint in them???

Pretty easy on the lint assy;
Remove the lint cup;
Find screw (5) in a recess at the bottom of the lint cup area;
This will allow removal of the perforated lint surround, and the 'lint scraper'; Also will expose the moisture sensor (3) hanging off wires at the bottom of the assy;
At the bottom of the surround there is another recessed phillips screw; remove this, then twist the surround (14) counter-clockwise about 1/2" and remove to expose the filter (13).

Not sure on the reset- I do know the top swivels up after removing the two screw caps and screws at the front of the unit on either side. This exposes the underside of the control panel; there are screws at the back of the control panel also.

SOURCE: Lint is not going into pull out lint trap. The lint screen is torn and lint is collecting behind trap.

Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel ED56 not working

Replace (repair) the exhaust sensor this looks like a transistor with the middle leg cut off. it is situated below the lint filter but can only accessed by removing the back panel, top panel (or rear screws to allow the removal of the drum). drum and then front panel to remove the connector from the mainboard. If you follow the exhaust tube once the back is off you will see a single phillips head screw that is the sensor. check the wires to the circuit board are not broken or dry joints or just replace it. sorry i had a spare machine i scavenged from to fix my problem so i dont know where to buy new.

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.

Dryer gets a little warm, but clothes are not drying at all as if the heating source is not activating and it continues to sense the dryness until it eventually turns off.


Check the lint filter and all the duct work on the dryer for lint. When you get excessive lint buildup, it will prolong the drying time.

Fisher & Paykel Auto Sensor Dryer stops & beeps constantly


Hi emkboyce

my Fisher Paykel auto sensor dryer keeps stopping and beeping, i have to stop it and and re start.

I had the same problem. I took it off the wall and vacuumed up all the lint from everywhere including around the back and including taking off the back and vacuuming everything I could reach inside. I then used a damp cloth to get rid of the rest of the lint/dust.

I thought I was wasting my time but guess what, the problem has gone.

Good luck!

Dryer tumbles, no heat


Fist thing to check is if the manual reset on the heater box has tripped. That dryer can be serviced from the front. Also, there is a heater upgrade kit that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts that has several updated parts in it for the top load electric dryers.

There are several things that can cause the reset to pop out. You may have a lint build up behind the shroud where the lint bucket fits.

This is a complicated appliance. You may wish to obtain a service manual for it.
