Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Fisher & Paykel DG08 gas dryer that will get hot and shut down after 5 minutes. It will not start if you try hitting the start button right away, but will if you wait a few minutes. It did work fine , but have had to start 2 or three times till dry, but now will only run for a few minutes. Inside of dryer seemed extremely hot.

The thermal overload is bad and will need to be replaced,This is there to prvent overheating and when it fails and overheating happens,a secondary overload kicks in to prevent a fire.

Dryer spins for 10 minutes then shuts off. I have to manually start it again every 10 minutes


Its getting too hot and shutting down to protect its internals.
Make sure the filters are clear of fluff and that the exit vent is not blocked by dirt.

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.

I push the start button of the dryer and as soon as I let go the dryer shuts off


Check your motor. DO you have a ohm meter? i would ohm out your start winding of the motor. Its should read resistance. if it shows "OL" then your start winding is bad..i would check this first

I have a fisher paykel GWL10 washing machine. It shuts off while


At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Burning smell after hitting the reset button


the lint may have moved into the motor/ or other areas, clean the unit again and have another inspection, checking for burn't wire etc.
