Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My 4 year old dryer is not heating so I want to try the reset button as well as cleaning out the inside to see if that will take care of the problem before ordering a heating element which I cannot afford. I have called around in my county & there is no one who works on the Fisher Paykel product. Thanks for any help you can give me.

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

My doesnt get hot do i need to replace element took back cover of noticed reset button on element box was kicked do i need to replace element and re set switch to


Before spending money on another heating element, clean filter, vents and exhaust pipe (take it off and check both, the pipe and inside the dryer). A restricted hot air passage will make the heating elements thermal protection (reset switch) to activate.

Once unclogged, press the reset button and try again.

Good luck!!

Dryer heat won't come on every time. Sometimes

That is probably some burred contacts inside the timer. Most timers cannot be serviced but this timer can be if you are handy and careful. You can file down the contacts in this timer and it will work ok for a while and if it keeps on being intermittant you know you gotta buy a new timer. It is simpler and cheaper just to clean the contacts though.

Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

Front loader gas dryer suddenly stopped heating

The dryer may have a clogged or kinked vent line.
This will stop the heating.
remove the vent line form the rear of the dryer and see if it is hotter.
if so the vent line needs to be cleaned or replaced

Kenmore Elite He3 electrical dryer runs but it does not heat up

odd but it worked for me!! Try resetting the circuit breaker. It will not appear to have blown, this is because only 1/2 the breaker needs resetting, This is much cheaper to try before calling for service or parts. My 2002 E3t has only had this problem once and the resetting worked without further issues for 2 years now. Good luck
