Question about Fisher and Paykel DE06 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer will not shut down or advance when it is in the Automatic Perm. Press mode. Diagnosed with faulty timer, replaced yesterday for ~$300 and the dryer ran all night long. Is there a "dryness sensor" that might have been the problem? Frustrated.

I have found that the permanent press cycle will continue to roll the clothes around on a rest and dry schedule until you take the clothes out and manually shut off the dryer. The idea seems to be to keep the clothes from wrinkling when sitting in a still dryer. I think that this is the way it was meant to work, but I am no expert, just another owner of a Fisher Paykel dryer.

Dryer will not shut down during permanent press cycle


bad timer at the perm press point? timers have points in them like the older cars used to have in the distributors, my point is them sometimes burn out at certain parts of the cycle and tend to stick at that point when reached, I' rebuilt a few timers it can be done but its a headache somewhat, but I saved almost 200 bucks well worth it, by the way a lot of lint is bad clean it out, but it will not keep dryer running in fact it will burn out thermal shutoff and shut down dryer. there is also a slight chance the cycling thermostat or hi-lo thermostat is bad, one cycles the heat and when it gets to hot it shuts it down but if it is stuck it can keep the machine on continually. but its a rarity AND LAST BUT NOT LEASTLY u may have a bad control board?

My dryer model dv231aew/xaa Will not shut off unless you open the door....on/off & pause shows its working but its not


follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace the heating elements.

Kenmore dryer...model # 1108262101 clothes not getting dry...normal dries better than perm press but still not as good as before....where do I begin? Thanks, Mary


Hi lkyldy31...


Your dryer is acting like it has a Clogged Vent
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)
The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
Heating Element
Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace the heating element. You can check for an ohm reading but will need to refer to the service manual for proper reading. This sometimes on the tech sheet located somewhere on the dryer. Usually between 9-13 ohms.
Cycling thermostat
Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork . This thermostat usually has four wires going to it. Check the 2 terminals that are opposite each other and are the closer together of the 2. These 2 terminals should have continuity. If not replace the thermostat.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Kenmore dryer dial doesn't advance


That looks like a thermal shut off to protect the dryer if it overheats.

I am assuming that the timer never advances - even in timed mode (as opposed to some automatic drying setting).

Most likely you need to buy an inexpensive multimeter and start testing. There should be a schematic on the back of the dryer either on the outside or on the inside of the back panel.

Since timers on dryers are just mechanical devices that use a small motor (and yours is brand new), it looks like your timer is not getting power. The switch itself is mechanical, you should be able to rotate it to the different settings, press the start button and the dryer will work in the correct mode. Without electricity, the timer won't advance.

Check for loose or burned connections. Dryers use a lot of amperage so occasionally the wires can get burnt and corroded.

Dryer runs but wont auto shut off


On auto dry cycles, the cycle is controlled by moisture sensing bars located on either the rear or front bulkhead, ( visible inside dryer ) if the moisture sensor bars are shorted together (normally by wet clothing) the dryer will continue to run. If the dryer continues to run when the clothes are plenty dry, check and see if there is anything stuck between the sensor bars, (sometimes a metal sequin will cause this) or see if they are damaged. If not, you may have a problem with a timer contact, if the timer advances and stops moving at the same spot each time, I would suspect the timer. If this is an EvenHeat dryer, examine the control board located to the right of the timer in the control panel, for any burned components. Hope this helps.

Only works in Casual / Perm Press mode


sounds like the timer is faulty you will have to have it replaced.
there is no easy way of emptying it, you will have to bucket the water out. you could try siphoning it out using the drain hose but i don't think you will have any luck.
