Zanussi tce 7124 w condenser dryer does not completely dry cloths

Posted by on

  • liammccoo324 Feb 13, 2010

    Hi, just gotten around to this, the heating element is fine and all vents/seals are clear.

    When the cycle ends the water level indicator flashes, and when in there I noticed water lying on the floor of the machine. The reservoir can be empty and this light comes on.

    Am in process of completely drying out the area and changing the seal on the reservoir.

    Is there a sensor down there to make the dryer think that the reservoir need emptied?

You might be facing this issue because of 2 reasons:
1. Make sure your dryer vent is not glugged all the way to the outside first before you do anything else, take an air hose and make sure you have ventilation.
2. Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Also you might want to check for the thermostat as though it is not a common issue one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may have broken down and caused the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Condensation water build up inside

I will say no as long as things are allowed to dry. So leave the door open for a time if you will not be using it again soon, or use a cloth to help speed up the process.

Not drying clothes. Have checked all filters and water tank. Still not drying :-(


If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Several buttons on key pad of microwave are not working

Steam got into key pay. Sometimes it will dry out. Take key pad apart and try to dry with a hair dryer, not to hot, you just want to blow condensation out of it. If this does not work, key pad needs to be replaced. The problem is they cost as much as a new microwave.

Brand new Maytag Centennial electric dryer does not dry clothes!

It may have shipping damage, such as a loose or broken connection or heating element.

But if it's brand new, it's under warranty, and they will fix it free.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer is very slow at drying clothes even at the highest temp and seems to be getting worse.

Best guess is your dryer vent might be blocked. Check to ensure the vent hose is clear of lint all the way to its outlet.

Dryer seems to be heating but cloths are not getting dry hardly any lint on cleanout screen

Is the air venting all the way to the outside? If you ducting is clogged, dry times will be much longer. You may also be seeing steam come out the door if you open it halfway thru the cycle if vent is clogged. A crimped hose between the dryer and the wall can cause a similar problem. A clogged vent can also be a fire hazard.

Matag Dryer sounds like it has a tennis shoe in it.

Bad rollers or blower wheel is worn out.
