    This information was very relevant, i would just like a second opinion because as it is it would appear i would need to change the position of my dryer or get out a service repair man out.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the control board that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. However, before replacing the control board you can take the screws off and blow mild air on its back with the help of a hair dryer. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to replace the control board. If you are good with these appliances then go ahead and replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

You may have a sensor fault, or perhaps even a "Brain" fault, usually caused by power spikes etc. Please use the Service and Repair Manual at bottom, to troubleshoot, and repair.
However the only way to really tell is to use a service manual, to troubleshoot and repair your unit.

Below are a few self help, "How to fix" websites that you will find very useful. http://fixitnow.com/faq.htm#dryers

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.

Fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.


Hi
Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt.
What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose.
Best wishes,
