With top off and machine in operation, try giving the drum a push by hand. if it starts to rotate and continues to rotate, then the fault is with the motor capacitor - cheap part
and of course, with the top off, check the belt is in position and not broken

Where is the heater element in Zanussi td 421

They are under the drum in a metal box that is connected to a heater hose and wires. Make sure you unplug it before you work on it. Note the location of the wires that connect to it and also there is a thermal fuse and thermostat that are hooked to the box. Check those too.

The drum fails to start spinning, a humming sound is emitted. there is black residue around the idler pulley, but the belt seems o.k.

There might be a problem to the starting capacitor of your drier. Check the capacitor if it is working or not.

Tumble dryer 4212 no heat where are thermostats


I take it that the belt is ok and the drum is turning.The heater comes with thermostats fitted as a complete part.There is an overload safety thermostat which is situated inside the drum and above the door,it is held in place with a self tapping screw then prise open the plastic cover and then the thermostat will pull out,if replacing remember to refit the small gasket.Have you checked the filters and exhaust hose for any blockages as this will affect the heating.

Hope this helps.

My dryer is not shutting off/no heat

The cycle timer motor is bad. Easily replaced and you can do it yourself. Does the dryer normally heat when drying?

Zanussi TC484W

There may be a capacitor in the motor circuit which has shorted out. The capacitor helps the motor start. If the capacitor is shorted, the motor won't start by itself, but will run fine if urged by hand. Good luck.

Unit not drying properly

I suggest you pull out your lint trap and inspect it and where it fits for a blockage. Also check the vent for any blockage. Then take out the lint trap and run it under cold water. If it holds water, wash it with warm water and soap then throw away your dryer sheets.
