Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Door latch Last night my wife ran a load of clothes on wrinkle free cycle. When she went back all the lights were off and the door opened. However, the drum was not rolled over to the open position. She rolled it until she came to the sticker stating to hold the lever and turn the drum until you get to the opening. Fortunately she had been turning it in the proper direction. When we tried to start it up again all we get is a hammering from the solenoid valve that latches the door. It bounces back and forth but does not stay in the extended position. I assume that if the door lock is not engaged it does not allow the start up sequence to go any further. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    just so we are on the same page....this is the top loading dryer.....the drum rotates, and is "supposed" to be open (slid back out of sight) when the lid lock button is pushed, to be able to then open the lid. Our lid simply opened, and the bottom of the drum was exposed....and had to manually be turned, to access the clothes.

Check the info from this website in regards to the door switch. You will also find more information how to troubleshoot your appliance.

    The door switch is critical to the dryer's operation. If the switch is not working, the dryer will not run.

    If the dryer has a door latch, make sure the latch is free of dirt or lint and properly adjusted before you make any switch tests or replacements. Sometimes a misaligned latch prevents the door from being closed tightly, preventing the switch from being activated.

    The switch on the dryer may be accessible from the outside door, or you may have to remove the top of the dryer to access it. The switch is a simple assembly, with two lead wires running to it. Test the switch with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the switch leads and clip one probe of the VOM to each switch terminal. Press the switch closed with your finger. The VOM should read zero. If the needle jumps, the switch is faulty and should be replaced with a new one of the same type.

    The switch is held to the dryer with setscrews; remove these screws and disconnect the leads to the switch. Install a new switch and connect the leads. Then position the switch and tighten the setscrews to hold it in place.

    It's noisyMost
    noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear
    loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become
    unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start
    it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!


Instructions
  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

Try the door switch and see if it clicks to activate. Also, make sure that the dial is always turned clockwise so as to not strip the teeth. Could be the timer .

Hunting boots no no!


If you have one of those fubuloso wrinkle guard whirlpools, they will buzz and start back up on their own in the cool down portion of the cycle the idea being the 2nd timer will keep the clothes from wrinkling by buzzing and then coming to life for a few minutes. Then it waits 10 minutes and if you aint got the clothes out or opened the door then it will repeat.
