SOURCE: help with a noisy Fisher & Paykel dryer

I have the same problem. Replacing the front glides (two glides cost under $20 plus labor and service call). The second time it seems to be more than the front glides. Service tech says that it is the blower moving back and forth on the motor shaft. (Because of a worn indentation on the shaft..). Therefore, he says that I must replace the motor and the blower--parts cost approx. $290, plus labor and service call. Ouch! Also says that the plastic front support piece is worn. More money! So, I am looking at a new dryer instead of trying to patch up the one I have (it's out of warranty.)

SOURCE: I need a Fisher and Paykel GW 601 Electric Dryer bearing

If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

SOURCE: my fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on

I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.

How can I find out the part number for a bearing on my fisher & paykel dryer?


Your model number might be DG62T27GW2.
You can get a user manual from this site.
http://www.ajmadison.com/ajmadison/itemdocs/3969_USA_EN_Smartload_Dryer_UC.pdf

To find the part numbers from Fisher and Paykel parts catalogue you need the serial number or product number of the dryer. This should be on a sticker on the inside of the lid. Once you find it go to this site and download a parts manual.

The dryer is squeaking/squealing during operation. It is a high-pitched noise that is rather loud. It is also getting very hot. We vacuumed the lint bucket area behind the cover, which fixed the...


I am having a similar issue. I had a tech out to look at it and he recommended replacing the drum bearing and idler jockey pulley. ($419.95) Ouch. I am going to do this on my own. I ordered the part from paykelfisherparts.net. Part # 479332 Drum Bearing Kit $79.91.

Check here for more info. This was exactly what I found on my machine (DGGX1) http://fisherpaykelparts.net/techhelp/fisher-paykel-top-load-dryers-us-models/731-fisher-paykel-dggx1-top-load-dryer.html

I did not totally trust the repair dude. He was wierd and not very thorough. I can tell the bearing is bad, if there are still noises I will order up the jockey pully thing and see if I can figure that out.

Here is a link to the service manual. (https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B5If-wTgYWH5OGNkY2RmZDEtMWU4OS00MjgwLTg3OWEtMmRlZjY0N2I5MzYy&hl=en)

Squeal when dryer turning


The problem is that your dryer needs a new drum bearing.

1 Answer

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 and Paykel top load gas dryer makes very loud noises.


You may have something stuck in the blower wheel, or more unlikely something stuck in the bearing(s). Will need a Tech to come out.
