Question about Dryers

Open Question

My Fisher + Paykel AD39 Dryer has stopped starting up. If I help the drum or fly wheel at the back to turn the dryer starts and runs fine until the next time it stops. It then can't start again. I can hear the motor humming but it won't start turning. The heating element and motor appear to be working fine once running. It's just getting the to start that's the problem. Any ideas?

if the dryer worked fine before with the element not staying on when you open the door, etc, then what you have done is a very common mistake to make, you must have dislodged a wire off, or maybe placed one back in the wrong place, its a very easy error to make, which is why when removing parts for repair on any appliance you must make very detailed notes, better still take digital photographs with a digital camera double check any wires etc, don't worry i am a retired appliance engineer and even we can make this mistake

Check the exhaust hose. If the dryer isn't venting properly it will either stop or the heater will turn off and the clothes will remain wet. If the hose is not clogged check the wall vent tube.

SOURCE: fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.

Hi
Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt.
What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose.

Have a Fisher Paykel model DE05. As long as I hold the start button in it will dry fine. When released it just stops.
