Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a DGGX1 Gas Dryer. Everything seems to work properly, but the burner will not light. We have thoroughly cleaned all of the ducting and lint scraper. We questioned Rylee (and paid) at this site earlier, and were directed to check the thermal fuse in the exhaust duct. I replied that there was no fuse in the exhaust. I traced all of the wires and cables, and the only electrical component in the rear was the blower motor. The only fuse/thermocouple or flame sensor that I have seen is in the front, mounted in the sheet metal housing around the burner. I replied with this information to Rylee, but have not received a response.

Test or remove the wires on the ignitor and clean the contacts. Use a voltmeter if needed to test power from wires to ignitior. You can test the ignitor itself with an ohmmeter on the rx1 setting. Also take a look at the fuse behind the rear panel and make sure it is good.

Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

Tip

When to Buy a New Dryer or Fix Old One?


If your old clothes dryer is not working well, how do you tell if it's time to replace it?Here are some things to check before you set it on the curb with a"FREE" sign.
If it still turns on, runs a proper cycle, doesn't make a lot of squeaks and groans, and your clothes are at least attempting to dry, then check the following before you decide to replace.

1. Check and empty your lint trap before each load. If airflow is restricted, your dryer will need longer to get the job done. A clean lint trapwill allow for maximum intake air to the dryer blower.
2. Check the exhaust duct work for lint buildup. If the 4" duct work that carries your warm, moist, lint-laden air to the exterior of your home is blocked with years of lint and moisture, chances are pretty good your dryer is taking longer than it should to get your clothes dry.

  • Disconnect the dryer power cord (and gas line if a gas unit), slide the dryer forward far enough to access the 4" duct work clamp at the back of the dryer. Disconnect the duct work at the dryer and separate to inspect both in the dryer exhaust duct and the duct work as well.
  • Remove all built up lint. You may need to access under the floor, or in the crawlspace, or basement to get at all the areas that lint may be built up. Remember that when there's an elbow chances are pretty good there's lint in there, so take the time to separate the duct work where needed to give it a thorough clean out.
  • Long straight sections of duct work can be easily cleaned by using a Webster-style pole brush.
  • Clean the exhaust duct of the dryer but be careful not to damage anything inside your dryer
  • Reconnect and turn the dryer on air fluff to blow the rest out.
3. Remove lint build up from inside the machine
  • Turn power off again
  • Remove the front cover of your dryer
  • Remove the front drum support/air duct from the front of the dryer
  • Carefully vacuum the lint out of the dryer with soft brush attachment on your vac. Be careful not to damage any igniter or electrical items.
  • Clean the inside of the lint trap duct of sediment/ buildup
4. While you've got it open replace the drive belt and check the pulleys.

If this improves your dryer, hang onto it for a while longer! Most times dryers just need a good cleaning and the exhaust duct cleaned. If you're not satisfied with the results, take it to the curb and recycle it to another family.

Gas dryer doesn't thoroughly dry the clothes like it used to


Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

I have a matag neptune gas dryer and it does not heat up but turns I am not sure the year of it . It is digital


The heat will not turn on for a few reasons or possibly just one
First remove the exhaust duct work and clean thoroughly
Any lint build up will cause the moister sensor to put the burner in check
Also after you had cleaned it and still no heat, listen for the spark ignitor to click when first turned on. That ignites the burner. If no clicking is heard the spark ignitor is at fault. If it does work the moister sensor is at fault instead

Speed Queen dryer burner lights but does not dry clothes


This is a symptom of a severely clogged up vent or dryer passages.
Remove the vent duct hose from the back of the dryer and see if the problem persists. If it workes normally clean out the ducting and the through the wall flapper vent.
If the problem persists then remove the lint filter and inspect the air passages inside the dryer. Also check the exit hole where the vent duct connects for lint buildup. Use a crevice tool / vacuum to clear all dryer passages. If necessary use a folded coat metal hanger to assist in removing lint build up.

Wash the lint filter with whie wine vinegar and then soap and water to remove the dryer sheet particulate matter that builds up on the lint filter.

If the burner lights but goes out after 30 seconds then the flame sensor on the top of the burner assy ducting is bad.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dryer works bu not lighting the furnace.What do u think?


Two things come to mind when this happens. The duct work is totally plugged up or the spark ignitor is out of order.
Check the vent tubing by completely disconnecting it and cleaqn thoroughly clean. I see one once I took apart and filled a 15 gallong trash bag full of lint. The dyer was three years old and had a 10 foot vent tube. 4 feet of tubing is always recomended at the longest length used. If longer it needs to be cleaned evey few months for 100% efficiency
If the tubing is clean turn on the dryer and listen for the click the sopark ignitor makes to light up the burner. If no click is heard the ignitor is bad

Fisher and Paykel DGGX1 Gas Dryer Not Heating


IF THE BURNER DOES NOT LIGHT --
On gas models of the F&P top load dryer, there is a reset button for the gas igniter. Take the front panel off as described above and you will see some orange wires leading to the front of the burner. Remove those (one side has two orange wires, the other one - note which is which; generally the two wire connection is on the left) and the reset button is between them. Press it, replace the wires and start the dryer. The gas should light in about 15 seconds. If it does let it run for 10 minutes or so to insure it is fixed. Then shut down and replace the front panel.

IF THE BURNER LIGHTS THEN SHUTS OFF --
Check the lint trap as described above and also check the lint vent outside the house. My vent goes up through the roof and the lint builds up about every two years. You can by a vent cleaning brush off eBay for less than $20.

The check filter light is just a reminder light and cannot be reset.  Nothing to worry about.  Just keep the filter clean before each use.

Black soot in dryer


There are several possible causes: a)  exhaust vent is restricted forcing the lint to enter the dryer shell and overheat and/or be picked up by the blower -- you seem to have inspected this b)  check the hot gas inlet to the drum.. on some dryers, lint buildup can occur in tight spots and it will overheat and char c)  ducting is not intact or leaks allowing lint to leak into the dryer shell -- this will occur over time, and all dryers should be taken apart and cleaned out on a regular basis... also, all ducting should be inspected and sealed as needed d)  verify that the inlet vents to the dryer shell are not blocked and allow adequate air flow to the burner assembly -- natural gas normally won't smoke due to incomplete combustion, but..  likewise, verify the room has adequate ventilation particularly if the utility room or closet is very small,  e)  check the drum drive belt, as it gets old, it will release dust and minute pieces which will be picked up by the blower -- replace if needed... f)  verify that the seals on the drum are still good -- replace as needed g)  as 'washer-tech' advised, do a thorough cleaning and inspection... put it back together with all ducting tight and free flowing
