Is the belt broken?

    If the unit is making "all the right sounds" this means the fan is running, directly driven from the motor, I would suggest you unplug it and remove the top cover that will allow you to see the drum and establish whether the belt is intact or not, it will be located around the drum. If its not there or its very loose then it is broken and you will need to replace it. Have a go.

Fit felt drum seal to zanussi td4212 w tumble dryer


I take it that the belt is ok and the drum is turning.The heater comes with thermostats fitted as a complete part.There is an overload safety thermostat which is situated inside the drum and above the door,it is held in place with a self tapping screw then prise open the plastic cover and then the thermostat will pull out,if replacing remember to refit the small gasket.Have you checked the filters and exhaust hose for any blockages as this will affect the heating.

Hope this helps

Dryer working but no heat


Your dryer has two separate fuses, one to turn the drum, and one to heat it. It sounds like you have a broken fuse. Unless this is a new installation, then you need to make sure you have the proper electric cord attached. If it's mistakenly connected with a range cord, it won't supply enough power to the dryer.

Making an electrical noise, but drum not turning. Sounds like it's shorting.


I'd suggest - remove the top cover. Switch on. Push the drum around - see if the drum picks up speed and continues to run. If this happens, it means that the motor Starter capacitor has gone dud and will need replacing. Note- If the drum doesn't continue to rotate after you shove it, switch off immediately. It will likely then be a faulty motor.
