Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

Replacing element with "upgrade"?

Should have found you first, however, after disassembling dryer (after being instructed to push reset by repairman) found that the elements were burned up in part. So ordered new element. It came with upgrade. I cannot figure out where it goes. The elements were right and the sensors fit in the correct positions, but it came with a sensor module. Where would I find this? there is a brown compartment that everything seems to be plugged into on the left side under the drum, but I do not see how any of the connectors would fit on the new board. Did I get the wrong one?

That module is located up on the left side, under the machine top.

I'm guessing you solved this by now.

I have electric dryer, it tumbles but no heat. Someone told me heating element. I read where you have to take out drum from front to get to it. Is it worth replacing or buying new dryer/

If you can disassemble the dryer, you should find full troubleshooting instructions including the resistance of the electric element and which terminals to test. If the resistance is out of specifications, maybe you could replace it. Parts are generally available at appliance parts stores.

No heat when the dryer is turned on

It's very likely that your heating element is shorted and will need to be replaced.

This place should have what you need,and has good pictures of the parts.

First thing to do is unplug the dryer.Then remove the plate on the front bottom of the machine.
Take a look at the pictures on the web site so you will know exactly what you are looking at.
If it is an electric dryer,it is not hard to replace the element.If it is a gas dryer,you will need to find a repairman.

Service repairman says that the 220v not getting to element-found relays on power board black.can these be cleaned to avoid a +$500. repair bill?

I do not know what the problem with the dryer is but if it is it will not run then there is a belt brake safety switch on/by the motor:

if the motor is tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

My LG gas dryer has had the thermostat sensors replaced and reset twice already, but after a few loads it stops producing heat. I have taken off the new exhaust outlet as I think the flapper may be...

You will need to disassemble the top panel, the control board, the front panel and the drum assembly to get access to the reset switch. LG has posted that once the button has tripped, it is recommended that it be replaced rather than constantly resetting the button.
Good luck.

Whirlpool Dryer won't turn on. Push start button replaced.... getting power throughout dryer (tested) there a reset button? does the dryer turn on even if heating element not working?

The small white skinny fuse on back of dryer is probably blown. Remove all air restrictions before replacing it or it will blow again and again.

Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push OFF, then ON. If breakers trip again, then there is a short to ground within the dryer--usually the heating element. The dryer must be disassembled part way to remove the drum. The heating element sits behind the drum.

DEIX2 does not dry - cleaned out lint trap, disassembled and removed lint from around lint trap assy., still not drying

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

Dryer won't heat

Since I just had a repair man out to look at mine, there are two screws--one at the front of each side just under the lid. When you remove them you can pop the top up. That exposes two more screws, one at the top of each side of the front assembly. Remove them, and pull the front off.
