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.

We bought this dryer the year Fisher and Paykel introduced it in America.(probably 2005??) It has had one problem before and that was fixed by a technician. Now the dryer at the end of the last cycle had...

Hi Lynda,

I am inclined to think that you have a faulty control board. Moisture from the dryer does tend to corrode the PCB (circuit board) and you end up having irregular faults.

Get your husband to unplug the dryer and then remove the screws from under the display/touch panel. Gently remove the display panel exposing the control board behind it. Note the wiring position which is connected to the board.
Detach the board from the plastic panel and physically inspect the boared for signs of corrosion or dry solder joins. Note there are two boards cased together (Display and Control PCBs). The part is sold as one unit.

There is no reset circuit.

Parts that must be tested are high limit thermostat and timer board.
The timer board is replaced if it is visibly faulty, or if there is no problem elsewhere.
The high limit located near to the element is tested reading impedance with a multimeter set at Rx1. If there is no continuity , the thermostat must be replaced.

Before testing parts check the lint filter, and ensure that air ducts are clean.

Fisher paykel degx1 lint trap won t release

Probably the holder/bearing for is out of place... it is really hard to get it out if this is the case but you can try putting a putty knife in between the top of the lint trap and the bearing and pressing down on the knife. If you get it out the lint scraper will have to be reset, F/P may be able to walk you through this.
