SOURCE: 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.

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

SOURCE: zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot

Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

Not sure but try workd with my Whirlpool dryer. Remove the condenser (clean it with water and a toothbrush too coz it will probably be clogged up) and pop a tea towel in the hole where the condenser was. Tip the dryer on its side and any trapped water will run out onto the tea towel or the floor OR the water reservoir where it should have gone in the first place......

OK I have now fixed my own problem with EDC 47130w dryer water tank problem.

The problem was the light to tell you to empty the tank keept comming on and the dryer would stop every 5- 10 mins and the tank always empty.It turned out to be lint blocking the tank fill area.
also some other problems with the tank and O"ring seals comming off.
I have made a video of my fix to share, here click the link to play the video.
I hope this may help. Please note this model looks the same as others so might be the same but different brand?.

My zanussi dryer keeps stopping saying water needs emptied but it is always empty. The vent valve is always falling out is there supposed to be something to stop this?

I read the posts then checked my drier. I found the valve at the back of the water tank was blocked with fluff. So I tilted the dryer and unscrewed and removed the valve so I could remove the trapped fluff. Problem solved.:-)

Zanussi tc7103w condenser dryer-water tank light keeps coming on when tank is empty or nearly empty-have found small plastic float and spring on floor behind dryer-where do they fit?

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

Zanussi condenser drier: tank full light on even though empty

Indesit condensair dryer


I have had a similar problem, my wife tried drying clothes that were too wet, causing the machine to flood. Even though she emptied the tank, the empty water light was always on!!

What I did was take the electrical plug out and tip the machine to one side, you probably will find there will be a collection of water in the base, which will leak out. Once you think you emptied it, plug it back it back in and try it.

It worked for me!
