HI, YOu need to check the door switch button to make sure that it didn't break off when you slammed the door. It is located at the top of the door opening, ususally right hand corner. There should be a little tab sticking out of the cabinet. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Zanussi dryer tc7114W door shuts blows the fuse

Behind the door locking mechanism is a switch, it sounds like from the force a wire might be touching the inside of the machine chassis. Gain access to the back of this switch and check there are not loose cables or cables touching metal.
You should be able to access it by removing the top of the machine, remove the 3 screws and tap the front of the lid with the but of you hand to knock it back and remove it. With a torch look down the inside from of the machine to idenfiy anything loose. Alternativly remove the back of the machine and see of you can see it that way, as that model does have quite a large back access panel.

Keep your screws safe ;)

Timer ticks, but dryer does not run

Sounds like door switch. Open door and push on door switch. you should here a clicking noise. If you can open the top of the dryer. put the 2 wires together of the door switch. Make sure it is unplugged when doing this. Make sure you use electrical tape when you put it together. Temp fix. Get a new switch

Dryer was running, son took out clothes slammed door shut, now won't start. Any solutions!!

Hi. That's a pretty strong son you have there! But seriously folks.... Unplug the dryer. Check for loose connections (screws) at the latch and catch. Tighten up anything loose. If this doesn't get you up and running test the switch for proper operation with an electrical meter. Also check for loose wiring connections at the switch when you go to test the switch itself.

Dryer won't start after I slammed the door

The door switch is probably in the next room somewhere.

Look in the hole around the edge of the dryer opening. There should be a switch in there. It's most likely been pushed back so the door post/actuator does not engage it.

Switch need to be put back in place.

Start button doesnt start the dryer

Sure sounds like a door switch to me. Is anyone slamming the dryer door? Was there a rubber bumper on the door that is now gone?

Dryer won't start unless I slam the door

Not normal. Check door switch. As a test you can jump it out to see if the dryer works then. if that does not help then , I i would consider replacing the starter switch.
