20 Most Recent Zanussi TC7102W Electric Dryer Questions & Answers

I'd suggest - remove the top cover. Switch on. Push the drum around - see if the drum picks up speed and continues to run. If this happens, it means that the motor Starter capacitor has gone dud and will need replacing. Note- If the drum doesn't continue to rotate after you shove it, switch off immediately. It will likely then be a faulty motor.

Dryer more than likely draws more current than other light duty appliances that are plugged in.

If the dryer tumbles but does not warm up, you either have one or two blown thermal fuses, a burned out element if it’s electric, or a burned out igniter if it’s gas.


If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat.  Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot.  Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine.  Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged.  Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out.  Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on.  If not you have a blower problem.


The thermal fuses are located on the element casing.  They each have two wires coming out of them.  They are about 3/4 inch round with screw ears on the sides so they are about 1 1/2 inch long and about an inch across.  With a multimeter, check the continuity across the terminals.  If there is no continuity the fuse needs to be replaced.


To check the element(s), you can either visually look and see if it is broken or check the continuity with a multimeter.  No continuity means the element is broken.  Replace if necessary.


To check for a broken igniter, take out the old one and look at it.  If it looks broken or very burned, replace it.

Does it get hot? If it does, then the problem is reduced air flow, caused by a lint filter that hasn't been cleaned, masses of fluff in the exhaust pipe (usually on bends), or the external vent not opening properly. Birds can also nest in the vent pipe if the vent isn't protected or is broken.

If it doesn't get hot, you need a new element. Some dryers have two elements if the dryer has a high and low setting. just one element can fail.

Hi, the same thing happened to me and is quite an easy fix,
1 remove the plug from the wall socket.
2 Inside of the drum at 12 o clock (above the door on the inside) is a thermal cut out which has tripped due to overheating.
3 Remove two screws on the retaining clip and take the thermal cutout out. This should be self resetting but for some reason it has not reset (a continuity test with a multi-meter will prove this is the problem)
4 Give it a sharp tap on the bench and it will re-set ( if this sounds too extreme go out and buy a new one but trust me it will work)

Try a hoover tube taped over the end so that there is only a small hole remaining. This gives extra suction.
