I have a AD55 Dryer. When I turn it on it makes a sound but the dryer doesn't turn around.


Does the sound it makes sound like a motor running? When you start a dryer a motor that is coupled to the drum starts turning. It is possible that the belt has come off of the motor pulley. You will need to remove the back cover and look inside to determine if this has happened.

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 Paykel Elec. Dryer


Usually the belt is a single piece that wraps around the entire drum. The fact that you smelled something and that you feel the clothes are not being tossed tells me that the belt was slipping on the pulley of the motor that drives the drum. This will heat up the belt causing the smell. If the belt gets too loose, this will happen. I'd replace the belt, and I think you'll be back in action.

Let me know what happens. Please rate accordingly.
