Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have a fisher paykel multi-temp auto sensing dryer ed56 and the Start/Pause button won't work, meaning that the drum will not function, everything else works and lights up, including the heating element around the drum. I've cleaned the lint filter, checked the door microswitch, but nothing will turn the drum, except my hand. Any suggestions, please?

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.

SOURCE: Dryer Problem

Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.

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 ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

I brought this Kelvinator ED56 MULTI TEMP Auto Sensing dryer back in the year 2001and for some reason is that the tumbler is rotating at a very slow reveloutionary turn around and at times it just cease...


The most common cause for a clothes dryer drum to turn slowly or not start turning at all, is usually due to a faulty 'start capacitor'.
The capacitor stores electricity to help get everything turning from the stopped position. Once turning, less effort is required by the motor to keep everything turning.
Other components like a broken drive belt, burnt out electric motor, broken wire among other things etc also need to be considered.

Diagnostic Mode
Entering the Diagnostic Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.

Last Fault
To enter the last fault diagnostics, enter the diagnostic mode as described
above, then press the Auto Dry up button three times. The last fault will be
displayed on the drying progress LEDs.

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.
