Fisher&Paykel electric dryer: starts then stops

HI we have a nearly 2 yr old F&P DE09 model electric dryer. Just recently it's taken to starting, getting hot (as it should) then shutting off - dial stops, everything stops. You can't always restart it, it seems to require an "off period" before resuming. It works correctly (runs through a cycle and dries the load of clothes) about avery 5th time.ANy thoughts? And, we did try unplugging it for 2 mins to try and reset the camputer - no improvement.
thanks Karin and scott

It sounds like the thermal fuse is bad. if you take the front cover off you will see a fuse with a red button. that might be what is causing it

How do you get the front panel off a fisher paykel dryer to replace the felt seal

my F&P front load dryer would not start - it would hum when I pushed the start button. After trial and error taking the top off, then the front panel with the door I found the lint exhaust was completely blocked. After doing a thorough cleaning of the dryer and putting it back together it worked! (note: DE60 Elba dryer)

No heat on any settings...worked the day before...great dryer, but less than a year old. What's up?


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Fisher & Paykel Auto Sensor Dryer stops & beeps constantly

Hi emkboyce

my Fisher Paykel auto sensor dryer keeps stopping and beeping, i have to stop it and and re start.

I had the same problem. I took it off the wall and vacuumed up all the lint from everywhere including around the back and including taking off the back and vacuuming everything I could reach inside. I then used a damp cloth to get rid of the rest of the lint/dust.

I thought I was wasting my time but guess what, the problem has gone.

Good luck!

You need to look up near the top of the cabinet front, there are screws way up near the top on each side that secure the front panel to the cabinet. Take them out and tip the front forward and then pull up. be careful of the door switch wires.
if you need a comprehensive service manual for that dryer, it can be found here:
