Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
We have had our top loading dryer for about two to three years. This dryer never seems to dry the clothing. Even when I set it to "extra dry", it still is somewhat damp. It's very frustrating. Can you help please. Why am I paying for this help?
I had same problem. I constantly had to take the front off and push the reset button, sometimes 5 times in a load to reset the thermostat. I thought it was a faulty thermostat. I took the lint trap/cup out, removed the screw holding the large round white cover and was flabbergasted! The whole inside was stopped up with lint. Thourghly cleaned the inside and unstopped the completely clogged holes and replaced. Ain't the Internet awesome!

Lint can get past the lint scraper and glog the airway to the blower motor. This will increase you dry time. Review this links: http://fisherpaykelparts.net/partmanuals/DGGX1_US_96011-A.pdf Look at page 12, item 13. This piece has a mesh screen that can wear thru and allow the lint to escape the drum. I had this same problem. Go to this website and make sure you are working with the correct model. http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/

We had the same problem with our dryer and the tech said that it wasn't drying because the vent hose was clogged and it needed to be cleaned. It is a safety setting on the dryer that keeps it from overheating. That is how many house fires begin. Hope this helps!
