Dryer worked fine yesterday. This morning it would run like always but would not heat. Machine is only probably (3 1/2) yr.s old

Hello there
The overheat protector is behind the machine's front panel, on front of the heater box beneath the drum. Access thusly: UNPLUG the dryer. Remove the lid. Carefully pry out the two lid bumpers at either side near the front corners. Remove the two screws beneath. Raise up the top deck, have an assistant hold it up. Remove the two screws at the edge of the front panel. Spread the sides of front panel just a little so the tabs that latch into the door grabber can clear. Pull the front panel forward and lift upwards to remove it. Be careful of the ground wire that clips to the lower edge of the panel. Shouldn't be necessary to remove the clip, you can turn the front panel aside enough to access the overheat reset button. Locate the reset button on the overheat thermostat and press it. The reset button is a large red button on electric models, but gas models have a small black button per pictures I've seen. The button should "click" when pressed if it was tripped. If so, reassemble and check if the machine now heats. It the overheat didn't seem to be tripped and it still doesn't heat after pressing the reset button, then something else is at fault. and yes the heating elements are normaly the first things to go out on these after a few years this is normal

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.

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.)

Heating element is probably fine. I had this problem repeatedly shortly after I purchased the machine. Remove the screws on the top of the machine by where you load it (1 on each side). Lift top front up a few inches to allow for the front panel to be removed or leaned forward to access front of inside of machine. After front panel is out of the way, locate the red button. Push it. You have reset the fuse for the heating element and the dryer will now produce heat.

This will likely happen repeatedly. Mine was happening abouut once a week. Eventually, I discovered that FP dryers are very sensitive and that they will only push their exhaust so far. Anything more than about 20 feet and the machine will think the line is blocked and will trip the fuse on the heating element. I purchased a part from Lowes (do not recall what it is called) that is essentially a self contained dryer vent. Its a small box that hangs on the wall right next to the dryer. Run the exhaust tube into the box which is has an inch of water in it. water collects the lint and the hot air escapes from the vents on the top of the box.

Never had the problem again.

My Fisher Paykel dryer runs normally but does not have heat to dry the clothes

the coments above are typical but not for this brand of dryer. I am not a Service technician but Very Handy. You can access the service summary (or Diagnostic Mode) by:
1)Turn on power to unit
2)Press & hold down the Auto Dry button, while you momentarily press the Power button.
3)Press the Auto Dry UP button 3 times to read the "Last Fault Option". Different combinations of LEDs has a specific value(refer to the WIRING DIAGRAM located under the control panel)
***The entire dryer can be disassembled with only 6 Philips head screws. In my situation, I had the same issue listed above (No Heat). Start by making sure your ductwork exhaust has no blockage or kinks. Take a Shopvac and vacume every bit of lint up inside and out of the Dryer.
Turns out that my problem was nothing but a Manual Reset button located by the Heater Coil Box (Located lower front and right)
***This is an overload arrestor that tripped due to a build up of Lint!
The button clicks when it has been reset, then it works fine. Once again, make sure your Dryer is spotless before you close it up, (unless this is a part of your routine maintenance, haha).

Dryer is spinning and blowing it just does not heat up

I had this exact same problem. My wife pushed our dryer back and kinked the exhaust hose, causing the dryer to overheat. It turns out that some red switch needed to be reset. You will need to remove the two screws that hold down the top shroud. (Not the actual lid, but what the lid sits on when it is closed.) Next you need to remove 2 more screws (i think it's 2) that hold closed the front panel of the dryer. Once you can get this to flip forward, you should see the reset switch down towards the bottom. Push it and close everything up and you should be in good shape. Hope this helps.
