I opened the dryer door to put in a load of clothes and the light inside flashed and went off. power comes on, i can set to the drying time, but when i press start i get 3 short quick beeps...no error


It sounds like maybe the switch that recognizes your door is closed my be bad or out of adjustment. Look for a 3/8" to 1/2" opening on the face of the surface that the dryer door meets. There may be a small plate that acts as the actuator. It may also be a small rod sticking out that gets pushed in by the door. Either way, try to actuate it with your hand or screwdriver with the door open and press the start button and see if that works. If not you'll possibly have to take the dryer apart to get at the switch. If you're comfortable with using basic tools this can be done and you just need to be patient while doing it. Test the switch if you have an ohmeter to see if it works. An ohm reading is fairly simple to do and meters cost less than $30 at a Home Depot. Don't get intimidated by their dials and number readouts. (O.L. = Open, 0 ohms = closed) If the switch doesnt change states it's bad and you'll need to search the p/n on the switch in Google. Someone on Ebay or other sites will likely sell these switches for $5 or less. Hope this helps.

My fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on


I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.

Malber Dryer won't start (sine-wave light flashing)


The dryer is easy: turn it on and turn the control to 0. It will beep. Then turn it to the desired program (20, 40, 60 minutes or a pre-programmed cycle), it will beep again and start. If there's a red light you have to empty the water tank at the front on the left. The washer is a normal washer. Just pick your program and press start (be patient as it takes a while to get cranking). Sometimes you have to really push the door closed very hard. Try and turn the control to 12 o'clock before setting it again.
