Question about Zanussi TD4212W Electric Dryer
The drive belt on my Zanussi 4212W has broken after much use. Before I attempt to get a replacement drive belt, I need to find out how to access the drum and motor. I've taken the top of the unit off, but obviously need to access the motor and disconnect (presumably) the rear drum mount to get the belt over the drum. I cannot access the underside of the drier to see the motor.
Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!
