Question about Zanussi Dryers
Hello Fixyas I have a Zanussi TD4113W tumble drier The felt gasket between the drum and the door hole is showing and part is ripped. A piece 3" long has ripped off and the gasket slides out of recess into main drum. We have had also lots of black marks on corners of laundry that gets caught in the "gap" at around 11 o clock position when viewed from front. I think it is this part: http://www.espares.co.uk/part/tumble-dryers/gaskets/zanussi/td4113w/p/1583/332/0/510749/103723/tumble-dryer-front-drum-f.html but not sure. Can anyone help with identifying part. Tell me how easy it is to replace it? Am experience at replacing parts in oven, washing machines etc Drier is out of warranty etc Thanks Terry

Is the residue coming from the back or front of the drum? Most dryers are equipped with 2 drum roller supports in the rear under the drum. You may have a drum roller that is going bad and some of the rubber residue is getting past the drum seal. Some dryers are quipped with an additional pair of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. I would check all the drum rollers to see if they are all in good shape. A definite symptom of a bad drum roller is finding black residue along the outside of the drum where the rollers ride. You will have to open the dryer cabinet to see the outside of the drum. Also, check the rear drum seal to make sure it is not crimped or folded inwards in the drum. The felt seal in the back should should ride evenly all the way around the drum and should not be that visible inside the drum itself. That is, you may see some of the seal, but you shouldn't see part of it folded inside the drum or bits of it tattered or torn. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if this helps.

take it that the belt is ok and the drum is turning.The heater comes
with thermostats fitted as a complete part.There is an overload safety
thermostat which is situated inside the drum and above the door,it is
held in place with a self tapping screw then prise open the plastic
cover and then the thermostat will pull out,if replacing remember to
refit the small gasket.Have you checked the filters and exhaust hose for
any blockages as this will affect the heating.
Hope this helps

it is the drum gasket that goes round the inner drum that forms a seal and acts as a buffer for the drum to ride on if not replaiced the dryer will get noisy and wear the drum out they are stuck on with a glue
