Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
My electric dryer wont heat, had heating element and fuse in back tested they both are to be working great. Still tumbles , checked fuse, no clogging of out side vent. still not knowing what is causing it to not heat up please please help!! thanks so much for your time and effort.
I know you cleaned the lint filter so I won't even mention it:)
Is it possible that your vent hose runs along the floor (perhaps behind the dryer, or maybe even under a raised floor beneath your dryer - as mine used to) before going up and out to the outside vent? If so it could be that water has seeped in through the vent opening from outside and become trapped in the hose and is acting like a drain trap and blocking moist air from escaping which is causing the clothes not to dry.
This is what happened to mine once anyway. A cracked vent flap was all it took for the water to build up over time. Unfortunately mine ran under the floor and I had to actually tear up my floor in order to remove the water without having it flow all over my house. Fixed the drying problem though (and a new vent flap insured that it didn't happen again).
