    I have a Fisher & Paykel DE06 dryer and it runs normally except with no heat. Any idea where the thermostat housing is and the heating element? Any pictures of the thermostats? Would it be the thermostats when there is no heat at any of the settings?

    I had the same problem under warranty and had to wait 2 weeks for a repair guy to come flip a reset switch. It took him about 3 minutes. Now it's doing it again. Any idea how to access the panel which holds the reset switch?

    I have the same problem. 3 months ago the heating element was replaced and then in December the breaker reset, I need to reset again no heat, but I don't know where the switch is. Any ideas?

    Our Fisher and Paykel dryer does not heat. I know the heating element is not in the lid (which is a top loader) but I'm wondering if there is a reset button on my unit that I have read about from other questions on this site. If so, where would mine be?

Not sure how old your dryer is but earlier models had the element around the door.
As a rookie you would have to remove the rear cover, the drum, the belt around the drum and then you would sse the element held in place by clips on the inside of the front panel. The thermostat would placed not too far away. I have just purchase a new dryer (very recent model) and was told the element is located away from the door. I guess I won't know until I have a problem with mine.

As usual, heed the warnings about electrical appliances and the risk of electrical shock.
Always unplug the appliance from the power point as you can still get a stock on the neutral connection even if the swith on the power point is turned off. (tunrs of the active connection only).

Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer Stays Warm

Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.
