Zannusi TCE7127W Not turning if load too heavy

Recently our 2year old Zabussie condensor TCE7127W has started to stop the programme that is selected through a failure to start turning the drum. We can get it to work once me remove some "threshold" portion of the load. It should run with 6kg's of clothes and has never had a problem with large loads before.

Is it a motor problem?
Is it something else?
Can I DIY fix it/investigate it as it is out of warranty?

Any ideas appreciated

    Wow, thanks for this.

    The condensor is the thing that cools the water, the capacitator sounds like something to do with power.

    Is there a way to test this solution by testing the old part somehow?

    Big thankyou, just pulled it out and got no sparks at the shorting procedure and certainly no charge or tingling when I picked it up! I'll order a new one.

    You would buy for about $10=€7 ,but anyway put a live and neg across the two spades connections on the capacitor 220 current ,you would have to remove it from the dryer ,one nut,then disconnect it from the current ,and cross the two connections on the capacitor if the capacitor gives off a good spark its OK if it thos not it is f**ked

Dryer is growling when spinning heavy loads.

The bearings may be gone, but I don't know how old your machine is or the brand. If it is over 8 years old, consider replacing it. Maybe get an estimate from a repairman who knows your brand.

My AEG T37400 lavatherm standanlone tumble dryer works for a turns of the drum then stops.

Alarm conditions during operation of the dryer

The LEDs begin to flash if one of the following malfunctions occurs:
  • NTC open (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • NTC short-circuited (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • If the START button is pressed for more than 20 seconds while a cycle is in operation all the LEDs flash.
25679338-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-5-5.jpg If the microprocessor identifies one of the conditions listed above, operation of the dryer is interrupted; the LEDs continue to flash in order to warn the user of the malfunction.
If the error is eliminated, the dryer returns to normal operation when the programme selector knob is turned to RESET and the drying cycle is re-selected.
