Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX2 Dryer

1 Answer

I have a DEGX2 electric dryer. When it's turned on, the interior lid does not slide forward smoothly, as it used to do. It makes a groaning, grinding noise, which diminishes somewhat as it warms up. However, it's worse when I put in a heavy load like wet towels than when loaded with sheets. I notice that when I put nothing in it, the noise disappeared. I love this dryer so please help me fix it!

    Thanks for the help. It does seem to be the lid. Where would you apply the lithium grease? To the edges or connecting points? G

I think some lithium grease should help your problem for the lid.
If the wash machine itself is groaning when running and under load, you may have bad tub bearings.

    I would try and listen to see where the noise is coming from. If it's the lid, they make a lithium appliance grease. Same grease they use on the bearings and the coupler. If the noise is coming from inside, then remove the panels and see if bearings or coupler are bad. Usually if he bearings are going bad it would be very hard to spin the tub by hand. Otherwise the tub should turn fairly easily by hand.

    On the edges along the track and if there is a wheel, on that as well.

What could make a noise when drum tumbles on Fisher Paykel top loading dryer, Model DEGX2?


GOD IS GOOD !!!!

DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

Hello I have a general electric dryer model DBSR463EG6WW serial number TR775112A and was wondering how do I bypass the start switch because it is broken


please there is no need to start your dryer without the switch. you can easily replace the switch yourself just follow this instructions below to replace your switch. things you will need are philip and hex and nut screwdrivers, putty knife and Replacement "start" switch. then Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. Slide the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the dryer vent from the dryer's back panel.
    1. Loop a piece of string behind the "Start" button and pull forward on the string to pop the knob off the switch's post.

    2. Access the interior of the control panel. Depending on your model of dryer, there are several ways to access the interior of the control panel. On older dryers, there will be an access panel along the back of the control panel that can be removed once all of the retaining screws have been removed. On newer dryers, the control panel is held in place by screws in the front or spring clips. Remove the plastic end caps on the control panel and remove the screws underneath. If your dryer has no end caps, slide a putty knife under the corners of the control panel and lift up on the knife to release the clips. Rotate the control panel toward the rear of the dryer to access the interior.

    3. Unplug the wires from the switch by sliding them off the contact terminals on the switch. Make a note which wire connects to which terminal so you can easily connect them to the new switch.

    4. Press the release tab to unlock the switch and slide it out of its socket. If you have an older dryer, remove the retaining screw to remove the switch. Slide a new switch into the socket and press it down until the release tab locks into place. If you removed a retaining screw, replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.

    5. Rotate the control panel back down on the dryer or replace the rear access panel. Replace the knob and reconnect the dryer vent. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?


I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

OK I had this issue as well. I ended up opeing up the dryer and cleaning all the connections. After that it came right back up. It would start with the displaying going haywire. Easy fix and saves you a tech coming out.
1. Take off lid
2. open up the buttons with 2 screws in back
3. Pull electric wire connection and blow out.
4. unscrew 2 screws top front. Covered by rubber stops
5. Lift Lid and blow out. Sensor on the left top.

Worked for me.
