Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Just to clarify your statement "dryer does not heat up I pushed both reset buttons..." are you referring to the hi limit cut out ( on the heater box ) and the emergency shut off switches ( next to the belt pulley ) you've reset already ?

examples

I'll assume you are unless you say otherwise since you've also stated the dryer will indeed tumble just not heat, correct ?

Have you checked the heating element for continuity following the reset attempts ?

If not, that is where I'd direct your attention going forward. With the aid of an ohm meter or a multi-meter, place a lead on each element terminal and you should have continuity.

If you're uncertain about how to go about this, send me an email at macmarkus@live.ca and I can attach a short .wmv file approximately 3.5MB ( there is no audio and it is directly from Bosch ) on "how to".


I'll watch for your reply. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Where is the reset button on a fisher & paykel dryer model DEGX1, also where is the heating element located?


Always disconnect power first and take the front off of the dryer and locate 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. This should fix your problem, here is a website if you need further assistance, Good Luck Tim:

Dryer run but no heat


Try pushing the reset button located inside the dryer housing. (Remove top, then outer housing 'wrap around', reset button is behind the outer 'wrap around' metal in the front of the dryer.)

No heat


You may need a new heating unit for your dryer, but usually and most always it's the temperature sensor that needs reset, most of them have a push button built into the sensor that you can push to reset it.

This most always works, failing that you need a new element to heat. though sometimes wires rattle loose and simply need plugged back into socket.

In all examples you need to take the panels off your unit to get the parts in question.

Hope this helps.

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.

Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.


Hi, this is a simple issue here. these switches will fail from time to time. the start switch is unable to hold the circuit, in return, opening it upon release of the button.

Simply replacing the switch will fix this issue. switch is 20 dollars tops.

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps
