Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

Squeaking noise DEGX1

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.

Thank you.

    I am having the same problem, mine is a little over 3 yrs old. I hope someone can let us know whats up and how to stop the squeak.

    I HAD the same problem. I tried to follow the fixya by just taking off the bearing cap. Somehow, the bolt from the inside was spinning and it would not come off. It was almost corroded. I also noticed the lint netting insidewas torn in three spots. This thing is junk for only being three years old. It is now in the garage and is being replaced with a MAYTAG.

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.
