Question about Fisher and Paykel SmartLoad DG62T27G Dryer

1 Answer

Drying is taking a long time. Vent line is clean, and dryer is not beeping like it normally does if there's a restriction. Also cleaned the drum exit ports of lint. The heating element appears to be working, as the inlet area of the drum gets hot. I'm thinking that the fan is not working? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

My dryer is taking way to much time to dry a basic load

The problem is either a blocked lint filter or a restricted vent system if the dryer heats up normally or a faulty cycling thermostat if the dryer heats up erratically. Check and make sure the lint filter is clear. You may need to have a contractor have the vent system checked and cleaned as it is necessary to clean them at least once year or every six months if 4 to 5 loads are done everyday. Restricted vent system impedes the airflow and therefore the disposing of the steam it carries. This consequently results in the longer drying time.

Replace the cycling thermostat if the dryer is heating up erratically or does not heat up sufficiently.

Gas lights up for about 5 minutes and then burns out. Try to turn on dryer again, but flame won't light. I let dryer sit for aout 30 minutes and turn on again - flame starts up, but will only last...

If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.

For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.

You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.

My dryer isn't drying like it used 2, I have 2 run it a couple times on a cycle 2 get the same effect i used 2 get with 1 cycle. lint trap is clean,lint hose is clean vent also?

Check your vent hose. You probably need to get the vent system cleaned out. It sounds like you have a restriction in your vent line.

It takes forever to dry a load of clothes. Drum

Have you checked your vent for blockage? Over time, lint build-up in the vent and in the back of the dryer makes your drying time longer and longer. Unplug the dryer, pull it out and disconnect the vent. Using a flashlight and a vacuum, clean out the back of the dryer that connects to the vent and the vent itself. If you have a long vent line, you'll need to find a away to clean it out to clear any blockage. I use a hand-held plumbers snake that rolls up and pulls out as much length as needed. Then spin it around in the vent to knock off lint attached inside the vent tube walls. It may be easier to do this from the outside, but you can do it from the inside too. Check your outside vent cap for blockage and make sure the vent flap outside is not stuck closed. Also make sure when you push the dryer back into place, that you don't squish the vent tube, if it is made of plastic or foil. After reconnecting the vent, turn on the dryer. The air flow may blow out the lint you have dislodged with the snake. Clean out as necessary at the outside vent. I have a long vent line on my dryer, so I have do this annually. This has helped shorten my dry time every time I do it. Of course, cleaning out the filter regularly, does help too. The more often you clean the filter, the less lint that will build up in the vent . Hope this helps. Douglas

Have you cleaned out the lint build-up from inside of the dryer yet? When you disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer, look inside the dryer. It probably have years of lint build up covering everything and needs cleaned out. You also will need to clean out the filter reservoir (with the filter removed) if you can get to it with a vacuum attachment. Be sure to unplug the cord and close the gas valve while you are working on it. Also be sure your vent flap outside is not stuck and allows hot air to open it when in use. Lastly, when you push the dryer back into place, make sure you don't squish the vent tubing if it is an expandable plastic or foil vent, which will restrict air flow and cause drying clothes to take longer. Hope this helps. Douglas

Dryer drum is turning, heating element is heating and cycling on and off, there is no obstruction to exhaust that we can see from within the house and dryer, but clothes are not drying. model KEYS700GQ0

if it's heating and cycling try running it with the vent line off the back of dryer,also go outside and make sure the flapper is opening and nothing is blocking it,when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if you have a long vent line from the back of dryer to outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean out the line,also if you have a shop vac blow off the motor and you can blow all the lint from the back of the inside of dryer to the front so you don't have to remove the drum

Recheck the vent all the way to the outside and make sure the vent hose is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints almost always are due to a restricted vent.

Remove vent to dryer and test a wet load if they dry ok then the house vent is at fault.

Takes extremly long time to dry clothes.

Generally, when longer than normal drying times occur it can normally be attributed to a clogged or restricted vent line. However if it is determined that airflow is proper then the problem can be sourced back to "tired"/"fatiqued" valve coils. To determine which is the source of your problem, start by accessing the end of the vent run & feel for a strong flow of air. If the end of run is not accessible ie rooftop mount. then remove the vent line from the back of dryer, cycle the unit "run" and see if your unit is heating. if there is an improvement then the solution is to clean the vent flue. if no change, then it would be the valve coils. It should be noted that there are some circumstances when the unit has been operating for an extended period of time with an air restriction that damage to the coils may have occurred and would need to be changed in addition to removing the air restriction, This can be determined once the unit is placed back into service.
