Fisher Paykell AD55-U Dryer
Posted 31 October 2005 - 05:29 PM
The model number of the Dryer is AD55-U (F & P 4.5kg front load dryer)
Also some of the plastic fan for the air intake appears to have broken away, is this likely to cause any problems or is it best to replace it as well?
Thanks for you help

To fit the belt , lay the dryer on its front. You need to remove the 4 screws that hold the heater panel onto the sides. Also disconnect all the wiring that connects to the panel, ie elements and thermostats. This allows you to get the belt around the drum, which loops over the pulley on the motor. The tension wheels squeeze the belt from either side to keep the tenson, no matter which way the drum is turning. after the belt is on, make sure it is on the line worn on the drum from the original belt (turn the drum by hand a few full turns, and make sure the belt follws the path correctly).
Reassemble and test. Let us know how you go .

To replace the fan, you also have to remove the drum, before you take out the motor. Let me know if you have any problems.
Hi Kiwi-nadian, I do have a problem, I have fitted both the new belt and the fan and it is working fantastic, smoother and quieter than I ever remember. However the cutout switch when you open the door when the dryer is running now is not working. Can I just ask do I need to reset the switch in anyway(i.e. I may have missed it), or will this be another replacement job, and in the meantime is it fine to run it without the cutout switch? Thanks again.

Check the position of the metal lever that the tab hits and make sure this is clicking when you activate it. If not then the switch is faulty or the position of the switch has changed. The lid of the dryer comes off by first removing the front console, then the plastic console mount / trim, and then the top. Or you can go in from the back and remove the drum which gives you more room to move:).
