Dryer suddenly stopped - F&P ED56 Autosensing Dryer

I'm not too sure what the problem is, but I put a load of washing in the dryer & it was working fine, but it suddenly stopped. I opened it to check as it was as if the load had finished, but it was still wet. I closed the dryer up again and pressed the start button, but it wouldn't work. I then pressed the power button which wouldn't work either. I unplugged the dryer and plugged it back in, and it let me press the power button on it again, but still wouldn't start. I'm at a loss as to what to do now!!

    Dryer stopped in middle of cycle. Drum does not spin. Recently dryer has made a squeaking noice when the drum turned over. Does it need a new belt?

    The dryer was working, but stopped and the clothes in the dryer were still wet. I tried the circuit breaker but that wasn't the problem. I unplugged the dryer still nothing once I plugged it back in.

    lights on the panel come on and the switch clicks when it is pressed.circuit breakers are on,dryer door switch works properly because when you open the door after pushing in the switch the panel goes into the pause mode as it should if the dryer were spinning. the dryer did not make any noise or stop heating or anything like that, it simply will not start spinning when the switch is depressed no mater what selection you make. when you press the switch you hear a click sound behind the switch similar to what a relay would sound like when activated. no hum or any other noise.

Firstly, open the front door of the dryer and make sure that the drum can be turned freely by hand. If this is OK, then press the dryer power switch. The front fascia lights should now be on. Then press the start button. If you only hear a humming sound and the dryer drum will not turn I can almost guarantee you that it will be the condenser that has perished. If the power switch will not turn the dryer off, turn it off from the main power point. You can get a repair man to fix it or, if you are a DIY person, look inside the dryer from the rear (with the back removed). The condenser can be found on the front left-hand side of the dryer. It is a bit hard to get at but can be removed by pulling it out (make sure of course that the power is turned off and the power cord removed from its socket). It is a tubular component with two flat prongs for plugging in. You may find that the condenser has blown brown stuff out of its side, a sure indication that it needs replacing. I think a new one will cost about AU$20 to AU$25. Our repair man charged about AU$180 all up for repairs and parts - luckily it was covered by an extended warranty so cost us nothing.

It could be the thermal lighter. Its the button that controls the light bulb. The switch needs to be replaced. I opened the lid of the dryer and had the door open and the light was off but the dryer worked. I closed the door with the lid up to see the light which was on and the dry would not work. I guess it thinks the door is open when its not and vise versa.

I just repaired my Asko Dryer and mine made the squeek and the drum quit.

I replaced the belt. I took the dryer down. I got a copy of the repair manuel. I ordered the new belt as the old belt was at the bottom of the dryer. I put the new belt on and off I went. It has been working with the new belt for the past 3 months. The old belt was 5 years old. How did I get a copy of the parts list? Google. How did I get a copy of the schematics? Friend. Oh, It did not do anything when the belt broke. All went blank except for the red LED that showed that I had power. I checked the circuit breaker first. I opened the front to see if there were any broken parts. I cleaned the inside and all around the drum with a vacuum cleaner extension.

Hi, Check the house circuit breaker to make sure it isn't the problem first. It will be a two pole breaker probably 30 amp. Turn it all the way off and back on. if this doesn't work, refer back to previous solution. Good Luck. kstfas

Have you tried replacing the fuse in the plug top? Please make sure you replace with the correct rated fuse, too big and you can destroy your dryer, too small and it just wont work.

Check the "lid check switch". Replace it if it is bad. Had the same problem and in my case it was the lid check switch.

Started washing machine; suddenly stopped drawing water


If you are certain there is water up to the inlet valve, and you can hear it humming, then there are 3 possible reasons.
  • The valve is not opening because it is stuck.Replace valve.
  • Check inlet of valve for a possible clogged filter, remove and clean.
  • Insuficient water pressure to open valve.
  • Plz rate my solution.
  • Thanks.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
