Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

Fisher and Paykel DG09 dryer

I purchased this gas dryer in June of 2007. I have been noticing for some time "melted" material in some of the items that come out of the dryer. I started noticing it with fleece materials. They developed hard spots, like it somehow melted, but didn't put a hole in the material.

I dryed a mattress pad cover and found numerous holes in it and the area surrounding the holes was hard, like it was melted. Now I have noticed spots that have melted on our winter coats after drying them.

Is it possible that the tumbler is not rotating and developing hot spots in the back of the dryer - thus causing these "molten" areas where the heat comes through the back of the dryer?

Any information of this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, sounds like a major safety issue and possible fire hazzard to me. Try contacting the manufacturer of your unit and do it before the warranty runs out so you have full warranty benefits. Good luck.

Fisher paykel gwl15 won't pump out water

My F & P Model GWL15 did the same thing. I purchased a new pump but that was not the problem. Tip the machine back and look under. There is a valve diverter that I removed and checked. There was a dime and lots of lint stuck in the valve so it wouldn't move back and forth anymore. I downloaded a parts manual, page 10 and item # 23 is the valve diverter. Once I unclogged it and put it back together, it worked great. I noticed it works better than it has for a long time. I'm a 60 yr old woman so anyone can do this. Good luck.

Inner drum lid moves into closing position but will not lock up

Hmm, this is a new one to me. If you have a certified tech near you it may be worth having them out, I would contact F/P and see if they will cover it, or at least parts, they are usually pretty good about giving customers a "freebee" once.

Fisher and Paykel top load gas dryer makes very loud noises.

You may have something stuck in the blower wheel, or more unlikely something stuck in the bearing(s). Will need a Tech to come out.

Fisher and paykel dryer

The Fisher and Paykel people suggest a reset.

The safest way is from your fuse box.
  • Find the the circuit breaker for your dryer and flip it off.
  • Wait 15 seconds and flip it back on.
  • Go back to your dryer and hit the power button.
  • It should be back to normal
If this doesn't fix your problem, let me know. I've got a contact now.

Hope this helps
