SOURCE: GE dryer starts but..... stops

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

I had a similar problem. There is a 'o' ring on the plastic part that keeps coming out. This 'o' ring is not big enough, you need to replace it with a thicker one, preferably one made from a harder material.

SOURCE: dryer stops when I release push to start button

Timer may need to be replaced. You can test it with an ohmmeter or test light.
You can do the same with the push button. If you have more problems, then the main control could be faulty

Hello I have a Zanussi TC 7102 condenser tumble dryer which has suddenly stopped working. It now makes a noise that sounds like it is about to start turning - except that is doesn't turn.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Cannot open the door Zanussi Z910t


If the door will not release under any circumstances, then you will have to force the door lock open.
Remove top cover, and with a long screwdriver or similar, force it between door lock and door sneck, you will probably break door lock, so have spare one ready to replace faulty one.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks,

We have a zanussi TC470 tumble dryer, it heats up at first but once we have left the clothes to dry for 70mins, we find that the clothes are still wet & the door has opened on the machine. Can...


The fixed thermostat on the Heater is probbaly faulty. (not the one with the reset button) I believe it is a Normall closed 80degree thermostat. What happens is they open when they get too hot and reset when they cool down. Probably broken. Worth replacing. Could be the one with the reset butti=on but as thye need a manual rest, probably not.
