I had this problem, reservoir connector was blocked so a small amount of water was entering the tank but the rest was going straight to the overflow and making the float switch. I removed the tank and the condenser then laid the machine on its back (this will cause all the water in the overflow to flood out onto your floor) the point at where the tank connected had 2 screws, I removed them and the connector and the drip tray under it come away. I pushed the inner part on the connector in and this revealed a lump of soggy fluff that was blocking the water from getting to the tank.

hope this works for you too

Zanussi ZDC8202P-WH. Only 10 days old. It stops halfway through the cycle with the 'water tank full' indicator coming on, but tank doesn't need emptying. It is in properly.

Return it back to the place of purchase and buy a different brand of dryer. Try Whirlpool or Sears Kenmore. You should have much better luck with these name brands.

My new tumble dyers stops after 10 minutes telling me the water tank is full, when its empty

My zanussi dehumidifier's tank full light comes on and the machine stops wehen the tank is practically empty. Is there any easy way to fix this problem myself

Most dehumidifiers have a switch near the top right of the tank or left. When the tank gets full it tips out a bit and trips the switch to turn it off and light the indicator. Make sure the tank is sitting properly as I have done this before, and had the same problem, or check and adjust the sensor(if possible) to fix the problem. The tank not sitting right can cause it to trip the switch with a mostly empty tank.

Zanussi condenser dryers

It can be mechanical or electrical malfunction. I would check tank microswitch, float and lever.
Below is explained how the condensate drainage system works and that will facilitate fault detection.

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.

Zanussi 7102 won't start. Power is ok. Condenser tank full light remains partially on even when tank is removed. When startbutton is pressed condenser full light illuminates fully. Water pours out pipe...

Pat, Have you found a solution to this yet? I have got exactly the same fault today ! Having taken the top & left side of the dryer off, I found what looks like a broken drive belt - not the main drum drivebelt which is fine, but a shorter one (about 18cm diameter loop) with no obvious place for it to have come from. Any clues would be appreciated. Dave (

I have a Zanussi condenser dryer TC 7114 w. It stops half way through the cycle indicating the water tank is full, but it is vertually empty and the water is collected in back of dryer and then leaks all...

I have just fixed this as below - your leak may be easier to see if you turn the machine on its front - there is a rear valve with a rubber bung and underneath a rubber pipe with a metal clip - check both for leaks -

Sounds like the condense pump is bad. Replace it, or look if there is lint in it. ;)

ZDC5350W 'full tank' sensor

Look for the sensor in the tank. If it is a float sensor then check it is not stuck. If it is a probe then clean the insulator.
