Question and Answers


I just bought a Fisher-Paykel top load dryer model number DE27CW1, and it is making a oriffic thumping noise when in use. How do I correct that?


Hi Leigh,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dryer.

I see that you may have already scheduled a service call. If the service person has not arrived yet, here is something you can check. If the lint filter assembly (395541) has come loose from the lint filter retainer (395133), as the drum revolves, the lint filter makes a knocking sound. I have included an image below that shows these parts.

Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

To remove the lint filter assembly the following steps are required:

  1. Remove the screw on the inside bottom of the drum securing the lint filter retainer to the drum.
  2. Turn the lint filter retainer clockwise to unclip it from the drum, then pull clear of the drum.
  3. The lint filter assembly should be clipped onto the lint filter retainer.

If detached from the retainer, refit and check that lint filter, securely fasten it back onto the retainer, if it continues to be a loose fit then replace with a new Lint Filter assembly (395541).


Refit in reverse manner, ensuring that when fitting the lint filter retainer to the drum, the screw hole in the retainer lines up with the screw hole in the drum.

Here is a link that you may use to purchase the Lint Filter .

Please check what I have detailed above and report back with your findings. I will be looking forward to assisting you again in the near future.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
