Fisher Paykel front load electric dryer Model DE09-US0
« on: August 16, 2020, 06:32:24 PM »

I was just given the above model dryer for possible repair by a friend. It will turn on and heat but makes a very loud screcching noise when turning the drum. This design looks like a GE type dryer with a single bearing at the center rear of the drum. Is this a typical mode of failure and is it one that can be repaired at a reasonable cost ? Any suggestions would be appreciated before I scrap it ?

I dismantled this unit today and found too many problems to fix it. It is going to be scrapped.  Heating coil was broken . Front support for drum was worn out and rear bearing was also worn a lot. This is a design that is almost identical to a GE unit which IMO is not a very good  one. No money lost since the power cord was salvaged.
