Fisher & Paykel ED56 Dryer
Posted 27 April 2011 - 05:10 PM
I have a Fisher and Paykel ED56 dryer that does not seem to have adequate power to get the load started. The machine is about 6 years old. The motor, bearing, belts and pulleys all seem in very good condition. The unit only starts with very light loads. Heavier loads require a bit of assistance to 'get it going' - once its started it seems fine.
I've seen on other websites that this is a common problem, but have not found the solution. Can any one tell me what the problem is, I believe the motor is fine as once it gets going it operates OK and there is no noise as you would expect with a faulty bearing.
Can anyone send me a link for a service manual also.

a very common and generic item
its job is to start the motor , hence why the motor is ok once running
and is ok with a light load
