Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I own a FP dryer model number DE08-US1, serial number VF740275A. Recently the dryer has been automatically starting when I turn the drying dial to any of the drying options (Automatic cottons, automatic perm press, automatic delicates, etc). I use to be able to turn the dial to whatever option and press the start button but now it just starts without the button being pressed. How can I get it back to normal where I can press the start when I want it to start? Thank you for the help!

I really hope the problem is the start button is defective, it is stuck on. You would need to get a new one. Bad news is, that is a little bit more rare than the timer itself being messed up . Those are quite expensive.
Be blessed.

On my kenmore dryer 970-c82062-00 I can get all 3 timers to start but the heated automatic dry portion does not time out.


that model number doesn't come up,you sure that isn't the serial number?also does the dryer have heat,when you run it on time dry the timer just counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until the dryer heats to temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving,it will do this until the clothes are dry,if you do have heat you could have a bad sensor or a bad cycling thermostat but you'll have to check it with a meter.send the model number and i can help you better.

I own a FP dryer model DE08-US1, and it is making a high-pitched squeking noise and smells like burning rubber--please help.


I suspect your drive belt is slipping or a worn bearing, you need to have this checked by a Qualified serviceman. Get a firm "Quote" before proceeding.

Amana model LGA30AW automatic setting doesn't shut the dryer off


You can make adjustments to your Automatic Cycles by adjusting the Factory Dryness Level:
Changing the Automatic Cycle settings to increase or decrease drying time:
If all your loads on all Automatic Cycles are consistently less dry or more dry than you would like, you may change the default settings to increase or decrease the default dryness
level.

Your automatic drying settings can be adjusted to adapt to different installations, environmental conditions, or personal preference. This change is retained and will affect all of your
Automatic Cycles, not just the current cycle/load. There are 5 drying settings, which are displayed using the time display:
0 Much wetter clothes, 30% less drying time.
1 Slightly wetter clothes, 15% less drying time.
2 Factory preset dryness level.
3 Slightly drier clothes, 15% more drying time.
4 Much drier clothes, 30% more drying time.
TO CHANGE THE DRYING SETTINGS: NOTE: The settings cannot be changed while the dryer is running or paused. The dryer must be in standby mode (power is off) to adjust the default settings.
  1. Before starting a cycle, touch and hold DRYNESS for 6 seconds.
  2. Touch DRYNESS to select the dryness level shown in the time display: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  3. Touch START/PAUSE to save the new dryness level setting.

Here's the problem: There is a dial on the dryer that should allow me to adjust for 'more dry' and 'less dry'. Up until recently, I could set the dial, and end up with clothes that were either 'more dry'...


sounds like you may have a clogged or kinked vent. its generating heat so the dryers good, your not exhausting properly, either clean or replace your venting, look to where it exits hte home sometimes theres ascreen over it cloggged with lint!!!!
