Question about Zanussi Dryers
Here is some starting information for you to check i will post more if needed
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Hi, welcome to FixYa.
They are a very nice unit and built quite well also, I wouldn`t initially think it would be an issue that would neccesitate replacing the unit.
In fact it typically is simply an issue with a fuse blown or both fuses blown, but since the indicater did illuminate slightly, It certainly sounds like a fuse.
Have you checked the fuses ? They should be located at the back next to where the power cord exits the dryer, sometimes contained in a box, other times not.
I would also direct you to look for bad contacts/connections, sometimes wires will burn up at the ends due to moisture, resistance and other normal element`s during everyday use.
Let me know what you find and I`ll see if I can assist you further.
