Open the dryer door and try to turn the drum by hand. If it won’t turn then you have something stuck in the blower chute – clean it out.
If you gain access to your control panel there should be a mini manual to help diagnose the problem, step by step. Your unit has a electronic mositure control and thermisters to control when it shuts off. Either the thermisers are causing the problem or the board itself...

    It could also be that the heating element or the motor is overheating causing the dryer to stop. It's possible that the motor could use lubrication and the best way to do that is to take the motor apart.



    Does the shaft of the motor turn easily? If not, you need to lubricate
    the motor. If the motor's shaft turns easily, then the problem is a bad
    motor.



    To test this, remove the motor from the dryer and rig it up so that you
    can plug it directly into a wall outlet. Obviously, do this
    carefully... particularly when twisting wires together for the
    temporary connection. Use tape and have the motor resting on a solid
    surface, such as a good workbench or even the floor. (After all, the
    running motor can't fall off the floor!)



    If you rig up this temporary test, you will probably find the motor
    will get hot and shut down. If it doesn't, you have a problem somewhere
    else, probably the timer.

    If you are unsure how to do all this, I would recommend getting a repair guy to diagnose/fix the problem for you. Unfortunately, we can only guide you as to the possible causes for the issue, but you will have to do the repair yourself or get someone to do it for you.

    Then its most likely the motor or the drum bearing. Please inspect the drum bearing as well.

    from repairclinic:





    If your dryer doesn't work at all, or stop in the middle of cycle it could be because of problems with:


    Door switch
    Thermal fuse
    Wiring











    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.

    If you hear a grinding noise often this is due to a foreign object in the tub, many dryer have a trap for foreign objects, usually you need to open the tub to access it.

My dryer stopped mid drying cycle. The breaker in


Your dryer has an overtemp safety. Called a high limit, it has 2 wires connected to it, and usually is held in place by 1 screw. There will be a couple of them, the one closest to the element will be the bad one. It looks like a suppository, you'll see if you open up the unit yourself. DISCONNECT ALL POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY ELECTRICAL REPAIRS!!!!!!!!!!

Stops mid-cycle, does not drain, displays nd error code?


Hello.
That code is telling you that the unit is draining to slow. After 15 minutes it is not below the low water level and will not spin out. The best repair for this is to replaced the pump on your unit.

I have a zwd12270w. Seven second after pressing


The problem is with the tumble drier heating element. If you remove the top of the machine (disconnect it from the electricity supply first!) you will find a big metal oblong "bar" that runs from the front to the rear of the machine. At the rear there are 4 white wires connected to the metal "bar". Make a note of where they go and remove them. You may need pliers to get a good grip of them. Once removed, the washing machine should work just fine but obviously the tumble drier will not. This is a well known fault and it may be worth contacting Zanussi as they MUST know about it!

Washer/dryer stops mid cycle


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
