Could be the door switch or temp sensor. To check the door switch put pressure against the door and see if it stops. Check the slot the door hits to see if there is anything loose in there.

F&P ED56 has 2 problems


Yes, (2) certainly sounds like the start/run capacitor has failed. You will see it has a split or bulging case, or a displaced end cap. Replace it with one of the same voltage rating and capacitance.

I can't advise you on (1)

My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

My Kenmore 400 series dryer has stop blowing hot air to dry my clothes. It blows room temperature air therefore, my clothes don't dry in a timely manner. How do I fix this problem? Thanks,


Hi Most ahve the same problem, maybe the dryer vent is plugged up , pull unit out and unplug it , remove vent and clean , then with a tester check over heat sensors at rear of dryer , they knid of look like diodes with two wires going to them , you could also by pass them with a jumper wire , BUT JUST TO TEST THEM ONLY ! it could also be th eelement , but most times it is a sensor form over heating unit , both are very cheep to fix,

My F&P ED56 dryer just hums when it is turned on. The lights come on and it hums, but it doesn't turn or blow air. We have checked the belt (that is OK), the drum can spin by hand, there is no lint...


sounds like it maybe the motor, here are other reasons the drum won't turn and how to open the dryer. Good Luck Tim:

Fisher & Paykel ED56 not working


Replace (repair) the exhaust sensor this looks like a transistor with the middle leg cut off. it is situated below the lint filter but can only accessed by removing the back panel, top panel (or rear screws to allow the removal of the drum). drum and then front panel to remove the connector from the mainboard. If you follow the exhaust tube once the back is off you will see a single phillips head screw that is the sensor. check the wires to the circuit board are not broken or dry joints or just replace it. sorry i had a spare machine i scavenged from to fix my problem so i dont know where to buy new.

I ahve a whirlpool dryer LGC6646A taht will not


This will either be casued by the heating element being broken or 1 or 2 thermal overload switches in the hetaing circuit that are use to protect against over heating. Both are very simple to replace.
