Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.

SOURCE: Won't heat

Not sure how old your dryer is but earlier models had the element around the door.
As a rookie you would have to remove the rear cover, the drum, the belt around the drum and then you would sse the element held in place by clips on the inside of the front panel. The thermostat would placed not too far away. I have just purchase a new dryer (very recent model) and was told the element is located away from the door. I guess I won't know until I have a problem with mine.

As usual, heed the warnings about electrical appliances and the risk of electrical shock.
Always unplug the appliance from the power point as you can still get a stock on the neutral connection even if the swith on the power point is turned off. (tunrs of the active connection only).

SOURCE: zanussi tc7103w tumble dryer not generating heat

There is a thermostat inside the drum if you open the door and feel up the front you will feel a disc with 2 screws holding it in remove the screws to expose the stat pull the stat out there will be 2 wires attatched to it. If you have a ohm meter check for continuity across the 2 conections or If you connect those 2 wires together and try the machine it should heat if so you will need to replace that stat. If still no heat i would suspect the heater to have failed

SOURCE: must hold start button to run. no heat

disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor
How old is this dryer?

Dryer on zanussi zwd1471w not working,new element has been fitted


Most often that I have found that when a dryer doesn't heat it's not the heating element. But more often one of the temp limit switches. Either the upper or lower limit. An ohm meter can check these.

My 20 year old Zanussi dryer model TD 260 has stopped rotating, but the heat is on. Does this mean the belt has gone and where do I get an engineer to fix this.


More than likely is belt, remove the top cover, and you should see if it is the belt.
If you are in the u/k, then go to---


WWW.SERVICEFORCE.CO.UK

You should be able to arrange for an engineer to visit, or look in yellow pages for local repair company.

Zanussi white knight dryer - the dryer is not heating up. i have pressed the red reset button the back but no heat? the drum still rotates.


It is possible the heater element is faulty or a thermostat problem.
You need to test the element and stat's with a meter to check for continuity.

My doesnt get hot do i need to replace element took back cover of noticed reset button on element box was kicked do i need to replace element and re set switch to


Hi!!

Before spending money on another heating element, clean filter, vents and exhaust pipe (take it off and check both, the pipe and inside the dryer). A restricted hot air passage will make the heating elements thermal protection (reset switch) to activate.

Once unclogged, press the reset button and try again.

Good luck!!

LG TD C70045E dryer not heating up, this has happened before and the guy just pressed a switch but cant remember where it located, please help!


On the LG TD-C70045E the reset button for the heater is located inside the back air-way cover. This is easy enough to remove and the button is obvious once the cover is off. The button will 'click' satisfyingly if it has tripped. Don't forget to switch off and unlug first...
