Fisher Paykel DGGX1 cold weather auto sensing problem
It's that time of year again. Once temperatures drop, our auto sensor no longer works. Clothes will remain wet until we put the dryer on time dry. We lived with it all last winter. The dryer worked fine through late spring, summer and early fall, but now the sensor no longer works again. Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it?
We purchased this dryer in January 2006 for around $850, so we've had it almost 7 years. Just looking back, we have spent $350 in repairs (idler pulley, lint filter and drum bearing) and $100 in parts (thermostat and another lint filter). We've been trying to do the simple repairs ourselves.
Seems like it's been a rather expensive machine. BTW, the lint scraper has never worked well. I clean the sensors every other week and once a month I pull the filter and clean everything. Lint is everywhere.
