Fisher&Paykel Intuitive Dryer DEIX2 - Fault Code 3

2 posts in this topic

My dryer stopped during the "Towel" cycle with Fault Code 3.  When I opened the lid, the drum had not reset in the correct position to retrieve the towels.  I got the towels by following the instructions on the drum.  But my dryer won't run now.  Only show the "Fault Code 3 - Call for service " message.  HELP!!!
