Question about Zanussi Dryers
When turned on machine makes a combined hum, buzz and rapid clicking sound but drm does not turn. Drum is stiff to turn by hand so broken or slipped belt not suspected. First suspected cause is worn out brushes. Second guess is a sticky solenoid (assuming that one serves to power motor on and off for reversing motion). Third guess is possibility that problem is something to do with reversing control. Haven't really got a clue and don't even know how to access the workings of the machine. Please can you help? Video or diagrams would be particularly helpful.

Not functioning electrical motors that hum indicate that the start/run capacitor has failed
call in an electrician to check and replace

no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

Yes it should turn by hand and may be easier one direction than the other. It could be as simple as something stuck in the blower preventing the fan from turning. This also stops the motor from turning. Worst case is a froze bearing on the motor but I would pull the fan cover off and see what is in there.
Let me know what you find as I have found some very interesting things in the fan over the years....
