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 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.

AD55 Dryer makes a dual clunk like it is out of round.


Run the dryer and look through the front door and watch for if the drum is running out of round at the back. The AD55 only has one bearing and this is at the rear of the drum, the front of the drum is supported by 6 plastic tabs that it glides over. These tabs are reversible if they become worn and a drum bearing assembly kit is available from Fisher & Paykel. For a detailed drawing of the dryer contact your Fisher & Paykel service center and they will email you a copy.

Fisher ED56 dryer wont turn off!


HI, this will occur if the timer control module or control board has failed. replacing the timer or control will fix this issue.

Fisher and Paykel Dryer ED56 Noise


your rear bearubg is mnost likely failed. and the back plaer is now hitting against the drum.
Part number (Fisher & Paykel Dryer Rear Drum Bearing Kit Part 479317)
you can replace this eazily by yourself.
check that the belt is over both rollers as well.. sometimes they slip off one of them.. especailly if moved around.
but this rear bearing is very bad. If you can find a skateboard bearing. it will fit nicely too. a much cheaper replacement and works fine. must get a good quility one lol (but any flate bearing is fine if you can find some in your workshop or neighbours lol

Dryer Problem


Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.
