I have a F & P clothes dryer that when u turn the power on from the wall it sreams a high pitched alarm which comes for the digital control panel at the front.
I vacummed some of the dust around the main power supply at the back and it worked - but as soon as I put the unit back together it went back to the alarm sounding.
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated :)

Re: Fisher and paykel clothes dryer ED 54 -U
Go back to the last thing that changed..."as soon as I put the unit back together"...what item may have pinched a wire during re-assembly....not saying it wasn't pinched before you started. I am saying there is a possibility of a wire pinched to chassis...an electrical short.

If it didn't do that before removing the capacitor & wires then I would assume it is something you have done wrong. Maybe put a wire back in wrong place. There is a wiring diagram on back of dryer. Motor not starting could be the capacitor, you really need to test it with a capacitor tester. It may also be the motor bearings seizing up. If motor is tight to turn when belt is off then it will be time for a new dryer. Too expensive to replace the motor on such an old dryer.

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.
