Question about Fisher and Paykel DGGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

We have a P&F top load dryer (DEGX1) that now is approximately 3 years old. There is now a persistent squeal. I can not identify it as coming from the right or left side but it is associated with the drum rotation. What are the most likely causes? what parts should be on-hand when i start digging into this? Thanks, Bob

Bob these units are tough to diagnosis even when your standing in front of it.,But here we go,The most likley source of the squeal is the (right) side drum bearing / support Part # 479332 its easy to install and comes with excellent installation instructions .Thats the most likley associated with drum rotation. While your in the unit you might want to remove the housing for the blower fan and make sure its clean these spin at such a high RPM even caked on dirt / lint will cause a vibration resulting in noise.Hope this helps... everything else in the dryer spins much faster than drum speed and would not make a noise associated with drum rotation Good luck bob

DEGX1 dryer will not produce any heat. 5 years


I have the same model of dryer and the same problem and no experience in fixing any appliances. I took a few screws off the top and the front, opened the dryer by rotating it forward, and found a red button (a fuse or breaker?) close to what I figured would be the heat sink. Pressed the button, it clicked, and decided to put it all back together. First load worked fine, hopefully that was all it needed. Good luck and hope this is all you have to do too.

half loads will vibrate more than full load
check transit bolts are removed
if vibration persists, then fault is probably shock absorbers worn

Vibration issue - DEGX1


you need a new bearing. if you lift the lid is going to be on the right side in the middle. and its not fun to replace so i would have a factory authorized company come out and do it. if you try to do it you might damage your drum and have to replace it as well. have fun. call f&p and they might cover the parts cost for you
