sounds like a thermostat fault, there is two on these machines and although only one will be at fault both should be replaced

SOURCE: Spins but no heat

There is no reset button on this m.c, most likely cause of prob, is faulty heater and or stats..Remove rear access panel, and with a meter, test for continuity on stats , and on heater. make sure the wires are removed from the stats, or you will get false readings.
Use the meter on the ohms range, you should get f,s.d (full scale deflection). if no movement on meter, then part is open cc't. Replace both stats even if one is o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

SOURCE: zanussi tc7103w condenser dryer-water tank

I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

Fuel injection pump problem


the only way for water to get into the pump is from water in the diesel
clean/drain the water separator( if it doesn't have one then fit one in the supply line)
drain /clean out the fuel tank
use a diesel fuel conditioner
always fill the tank to reduce condensation when not in use for periods of time
you cannot pull the pump apart as it has to be reassembled and calibrated on a special test bench by an accredited diesel specialist
best if you discuss the reconditioning or service exchange of the pump after removing all of the water from the system with a specialist diesel shop

Zanussi condenser dryers


It can be mechanical or electrical malfunction. I would check tank microswitch, float and lever.
Below is explained how the condensate drainage system works and that will facilitate fault detection.

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.

Disconnected condensation drain on hot water heater.


Tankless or hybrid water heater?

Tankless gas must have special fitting between water heater and vent that has a condensate line fitting. Hot toxic vent gasses traveling up vent pipe cause acidic water vapor to form inside vent pipe that drips back down vent and drips onto heat exchanger and other parts eventually burning hole through expensive metal alloy heat exchanger, rendering tankless computer water heater useless after electric circuitry gets wet and shorts out.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#vent

Hybrid or heat pump type computer water heaters must have condensate drain connected to catch pan located just above storage tank and below compressor. Condensation can form on condenser coils and drip into catch pan where there is primary and secondary drain

Open the bottom front panel. Remove the heat exchanger. Take notice to see if theres any water in that compartment. Reach your hand towards the back of that opening to see if there is water pooling back there. If theres water present, then your condensation pump needs to be replaced.
also double check the connection of the drain hose from the dryer to the drain.

Hotpoint aquarius CTD00 dryer won't heat


I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

Lint filter going off after 5 minutes then shutdown


Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps
