Customer Question
I have a fisher paykel...
I have a fisher paykel top load dryer, mid load we stopped the dryer and the drum didn't return to the correct location so I had to press the tab and manually rotate the drum to access the clothes. Now the dryer won't produce any heat during the cycle. Any thoughts?

A safety thermostat by the heater may have tripped. Lift the top and remove the front to access it. Push in the red button to reset. Only a few screws are involved here. There are service manuals for sale on ebay that are sent email if you need more detail or pictures of what to do. I can only explain so much in words in this forum.
