What could make a noise when drum tumbles on Fisher Paykel top loading dryer, Model DEGX2?



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.


Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

The blower:

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.

The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The drum rollers or castors:

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

My Fisher and Paykel Model Degx2 The drum is stick it will not open. Can someone help me please

see this and fix it. God bless you
If your electric dryers control is locked try the following. First make sure there is not a seperate control lock button if there is press one time to unlock. Next locate the end of cycle button and press and hold for 3 seconds. If this does not clear it press and hold for 15 seconds. Still not cleared shut off breaker for 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem replace the main control.

My Fisher Paykel is making a high pitched whine. Similar to some one running the finger around a wine glass.

Black spots and smears on clothes from DRYER (not washing machine

Sounds as if your going for a spin. Not really here is where the problem could be. 1 the bearing on the mchine is going bad. Since the bearing is sealed with its own lubrication the seal has blown seeping the lubrication into the machine one the temp is right to cause the oil to flow. How is this possible you ask? it is possibly flowing down the drum as the drum rotates and entering the dryer from the front of the drum. I would remove the back of the dryer and inspect the area and if all is right with the stars you may not have to take that spin

Good Luck

Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.
