    Hi, From what you describe, it is my opinion that either the belt driving the drum has come off the motor pulley or the belt itself has broke and needs to be replaced. It's not that big a job to do if you are mechanically inclined and wish to do it yourself. Otherwise, I suggest contacting a qualified repairman.

In first instance check the belt otherwise very gently tap the motor case with the hummer (preferably copper)and give it a go.

I have a zanussi washer dryer ZWD 14270w and the dryer is taking hours and hours to dry anything..help!


Not sure how full the drum is when you are using the dryer, but I have this appliance and it works best if the drum is half full. If the drum is full, things don't dry properly because the air can't circulate.

If that doesn't work I'm out of ideas!

Dryer modle Tc7102w/t5c7102s was working ok but drum won't rotate


Theres two things to look at, the brushes on the motor, replaceable and cheap, if they are are healthy then there is one or sometimes two large capacitors, these give the motor the ooomf to get it rotating, these fail which is a common problem with washing machines and dryers, again about £5= on ebay.

Zanussi tumble dryer. no.TC7114W


loop the belt around the drum.
slide the belt down the drum directly over the motor pulley
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard to the end of its travel against its spring
wrap the belt around the tensioner pulley
release the tensioner so the spring pulls it against the belt
rotate the drum by hand to ensure the belt is aligned and does not pull offf the pulleys
reassemble case
dry clothes
its easier than it looks seeing a broken belt in the bottom of the case.

Zanussi WJD1257W Washer/Dryer


if computer is broken that is your timer dial not worth fixing sometimes as much as a new washer but it could be your interlock you can test this by closing door set machine to a programme hit the front of your washer to the right of the door as you look at it if not take lid of make sure power is off look down inside the front of your machine were your door seal is attached to the outer drum were u hit the washer on the inside will be your interlock switch replace that before paying out for a timer m8 more than likely that is the problem
