Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
DEGX1 dryer will not produce any heat. 5 years old. How difficult is it to replace the heating element and estimate cost?
I have the same model of dryer and the same problem and no experience in fixing any appliances. I took a few screws off the top and the front, opened the dryer by rotating it forward, and found a red button (a fuse or breaker?) close to what I figured would be the heat sink. Pressed the button, it clicked, and decided to put it all back together. First load worked fine, hopefully that was all it needed. Good luck and hope this is all you have to do too.

It's not difficult to replace the igniter if you can get to it, but accessing it sometimes is a bear. First check if the igniter ceramic piece is partially broken. You'll see a piece of it missing, and lying below it somewhere. When you turn on the dryer, does it not glow orange at all? These things need to be checked before you take it apart. If you do replace the igniter, do not touch the ceramic piece, it is very fragile and will shatter easily. Make sure you unplug the unit before taking it apart. Good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Dryer heating elements come in various shapes and sizes. They are all strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to heat and dry the clothes in your dryer.
