Question about Fisher and Paykel DGGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

F&P DGGX1, drain backed up, control boards got fried.

With all the rain we've been getting, my drains ran backwards last Friday early morning. I've been so busy cleaning up that today when I went to start a load of laundry, I was surprised that the dryer, a Fisher Paykel DGGX1, would not power on. Closer inspection found that there was standing water in the exhaust area, which I drained. Took the front panel off the dryer and instantly smelled that "burnt electronics" smell.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to order parts? (or tell me that I'm better off just replacing it?)

Thanks a lot in advance!

Whirlpool duet dryer model GGW9250PL1 control panel turns on but won't start


The filter is plugged on the drain system. Take the bottom panel off under the door and there is a plug. GET READY FOR LOTS OF WATER, have a wet and dry vacuum present. Take the drain plug off and remove all the debris that is in the unit too.

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)

I have a Whirlpool model WFW9600TW01 front loading duet steam automatic washer. I am getting error F35 both when I try to run a load and when I run the diagnostic program. I have cleaned all the hoses,...


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

It sounds like you have a condensing dryer. These condense the water into a pan in the back, and then the water is pumped down the drain. If you are getting an overflow, it means the pan is full of water and the controller is shutting it down to prevent it from leaking on the floor. Most likely cause is a bad drain pump, which is a bit of a bear to change as it is in the back behind the rear wall in the lower right hand corner. The other option is that the drain line could be pinched or clogged, especialy if the unit was moved just before the problem started. Hope this helps!
