Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer

Dryer not working

The washer side of the machine works OK. When the dryer is started, the drum tumbles but that is all. The timer does not count down and there is no sign of any heat being produced.

    The two thermostats at the rear of the heating element duct show continuity(0 ohms)and the two heating elements both show continuity(with a resistance reading). On the heating duct assembly at the front of the machine, there is what I've seen described as a temperature probe which does not show continuity. If it is a temperature probe, I guess that's what to expect but the drawing I saw it on describes the rubber seal as a thermostat gasket so I'm confused. If it is a thermostat then it is faulty. Thank you for getting back to me.

    The solenoid on the water inlet valve for the condenser had failed.A £20 replacement fixed it.

If the drum is not moving: There is something stuck inside your furness blower( could be some pice of cloth). Open the furness and remove the piece and your dryer will be working fine afterwords. If the Drum is working fine; the coil valve, fuse or the gas ignitor could be the problem; usually repacing the coil valve will fix the problem

Dryer seems to be running: the timer is counting down, but drum is not spinning.

Dryer will not stop running

Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Druer works, heat and tumbling but it makes a loud

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

KitchenAid Dryer Timer stopped working - won't stop drying

Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.

CLICK HERE for your part.

It is $83.72 USD.

Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!

Your part number for the timer is 3976570a

A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.
