Question about Dryers
My Zanussi Condenser Dryer TCE 7124 is leaking water when you take out the condenser reservoir. It appears to be missing a valve where the spring is located at the back, as there is nothing to stop the water when you pull out the reservoir. What is the problem here and what is the missing piece that I need?
We have the same issue and i have turned the machine upside down today to find there is a condenser valve inside the connecting pipe that connects to the reservoir tank to allow it to fill. This valve has come adrift as an 'O' ring has come off of the end. I need to source a new 'O' ring from a hardware store or DIY store, which should solve the problem.

I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this
