Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
Fisher Paykel DEGX1. 3 years old. Get's heavy use with family of 6...probably 5-6 loads a day, two of which are (heavy) towels. Has been highly reliable up to this point.
It just started making a heavy squeaking noise...sounds like something needs to be lubricated but I cannot find a schematic of the machine...I assumed it was a belt but it sounds more like metal on metal....has anyone else dealt with a similar issue?
I don't mind calling the local service man but hate to make the call if this is a simple lubrication or belt issue.
I believe that it is a bushing inside the drum that dries and cracks. If you replace that the noise should stop.

Buy a Maytag. I took my 3 year old F & P out to the garage tonight. Quite disappointed with the product. Throwing in the towel. The bearing kit is $71. I also noticed that the netting in the lint trap was all torn. I didn't even bother getting a price on those parts, but I figured it would be another $50-100 for that. I'm 1/3 of the way to a new one so I figure I'll go buy a basic Maytag.
So far the F&P washer is working fine.....for now.
