Question about Fisher and Paykel DE06 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Something is interfering with the drum spinning. Increased resistance causes the circuit breaker to overload every two or three minutes.

    does the tub spin freely when you spin it buy hand . there will be some tension

  • bradiesdad Jun 03, 2010

    When I spin it by hand I can hear a regular clicking sound and I can feel the resistance but when I took it apart and just spun the motor, it spun easily with no clicking sound.

We have a 2007 Siemens washer. It has started throwing out the circuit breaker during the spin cycle; turning the drum by hand the bearings sound rough, is this the likely cause?


the only to diagnose the problem properly is to get in a technician to find out why it is throwing circuit breakers
that is a short or insulation problem
bad bearings may be overloading a low performance motor so see what he has to say and then decide
at seven years , parts will be getting scarce for the machine so a new unit is an option to be considered

Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping


Your circuit breaker keeps tripping and you are wondering why it would do that. There actually can be many things that can cause a circuit breaker to trip, or shut off. I will give you some reasons why circuit breakers trip and also some circuit breaker troubleshooting tips.

The first thing to remember about a circuit breaker is that they are first and foremost a safety device. The protection provided by the circuit breaker is also two fold. The circuit breaker will protect against overcurrent, or in other words, it will keep you from melting down the wires by placing too high of a load on any circuit. This would cause the wires to overheat and start a fire.

The other way a circuit breaker protects you is that the circuit breaker senses very quickly if there is current flowing to the ground with out it going through a load. This means that there is a shock hazard or a fire hazard. The circuit breaker will interrupt the current and shut off to prevent damage from happening.

If your circuit breaker is tripping off then you need to find out why this is happening. By eliminating the load on the circuit you can start to narrow down the possibilities. If there are a number of things plugged into the circuit then unplug something till it will stay on.If you can get the load low enough so that the circuit breaker stays on then you are okay and just need to spread the load out over a couple of circuits to prevent the overloading.

If you cannot stop the circuit breaker from tripping, unplug loads until you narrow the problem down to one thing. Once you narrow it down to one thing that is tripping the circuit breaker then you can find out why the load is tripping the circuit breaker.

Now if the load that is still plugged in is an appliance like a washing machine, then you need to find out if the cause of the tripping is the motor or if it is something like a wire that is rubbed through and is shorting out. If it is the motor the circuit breaker will often trip right when the motor goes to start up.

If the circuit breaker trips immediately when power is applied then you probably have a bad wire or connection. Poor connections are common in appliances such as an oven or a dryer where high amounts of current can be pulled at one time and the heat will make the connection get hot and eventually fail.

There are so many different possibilities for circuit breakers tripping that it is impossible to cover them all. There is one tool that will make the detective work of finding a short or problem much easier.This tool is called an "OHM" meter. One of these can be purchased at most any hardware or electrical store. Many big box stores and even a Wal-Mart also have them. There are many very inexpensive models available.

By using an OHM meter you can check the resistance of a circuit. The idea is that if a circuit has NO resistance to ground then it is bad and the electric can flow to the ground unhindered. This is a dangerous situation and must be corrected. In motors the flow of current between phases with no resistance, is also a reason why a circuit breaker will trip.

Above all remember that you need to verify and make sure that all electric is shut off to any piece of equipment that you are working on. Isolating and finding electrical problems can be very time consuming and frustrating. It will take time and patience to methodically eliminate the possible causes of a circuit breaker that keeps on tripping or a circuit breaker that will not reset. Through careful checking you can one by one eliminate the possibilities and find the cause of your circuit breaker not staying on.

Tripping circuit breaker


All circuits ultimatey are completed to earth (negative) so this can sometimes trick you. Try to isolate portions of the circuit that you are testing and then use your meter to check for continuity to ground. A tripped circuit breaker usually indicates a dead short. Look for bare wire making unwanted contact. More info about what you are working on would help

Why dryer pops breaker


Check to be sure there are NO OTHER APPLIANCES or circuits attached to the dryer circuit. That is the main reason for dryer breakers popping off. The next most popular reason is overloading of the drum. Next in no particular order comes lack of maintainance, improper installation of circuit and wiring. I'd have to be at your home to investigate to find the proper cause.

My frigidaire affinity front load washer buzzes and will not cycle what wouldcause that?


Good Morning Friend,

I see that your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, is buzzing and will not cycle. Some possible causes of this could be:

-Your washer is overloaded with clothes. Try taking some clothes out and restarting.
-There could be an article of clothing that might have slipped in between the gasket and the drum that might be stopping the drum from spinning. Check to see if there are any clothes that might be missing and possibly stuck between the drum and gasket.

If you have tried the above solutions and are still having trouble, I suggest giving your washer a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. After the time has passed, restore power and start a cycle. If your appliance is still buzzing and not spinning, I suggest that you contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine the cause of the buzzing and why it is not spinning. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Washer displays error code 51


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit.
This can be caused by several different problems.
Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem.
A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation.

With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily.
If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub.

You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board.

A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hello: I have a Maytag MDE9700AYM that was purchased three years ago but has been installed for less than one year. After the unit runs for 10-20 minutes, the circuit breakers trips off. Otherwise the...


It's possibly the circuit breaker rather than the dryer itself. Usually when it trips, it is overloaded or shorted. Overload can be a result of a loose connection or a bad heating element,when you remove the old breaker, see if it has some noticeable burn/corrosion marks where the wire is screwed down, I think replacing the breaker will fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

Breaker problem


This is probably the element shorting out as it heats up... causing an Overload on the breaker, as it's resistance lowers with heat. it could cause high current draw and blows breaker? Either that or there is some Phase Earth fault, in thermostat or similar? Or perhaps a wire moving and touching Earth as the unit heats up? Or the Breaker might be rated wrong?

Pushed dial, dryer would not start. Heating coil on, can feel the heat and hear ticking.


If the heating elemnts are coming on but the drum is not spining then the motor could be bad or the belt could be broken that turns the drum. The motor could also be on a thermal overload in this case unplug the dryer or turn off the circuit breaker for 15 minutes and let everything cool down. After turn the breaker back on or plug it back in and give it a try if you hear the motor running but the drum is not spinning then the belt is probably broken and will have to be replaced.

The dryer keep tripping the breaker


It sounds like the current draw is too high This would be due to overload of dryer, motor overheating binding of the drum assy.. First re level the dryer, next disconnect the power and Vacume out the lint inside around moter, try spinning the drum manually to see if it moves freely( some resistance is ok) Another possibility can be lose electrical connections on the breaker or outlet. Disconnect power before testing. Let me know if these tips helped solve issue
