Question about Dryers

We have a zanussi TC470 tumble dryer, it heats up at first but once we have left the clothes to dry for 70mins, we find that the clothes are still wet & the door has opened on the machine. Can anyone suggest the problems ??

Where is the thermista on a zanussi tc.470 please

Posted on Mar 20, 2010

The fixed thermostat on the Heater is probbaly faulty. (not the one with the reset button) I believe it is a Normall closed 80degree thermostat. What happens is they open when they get too hot and reset when they cool down. Probably broken. Worth replacing. Could be the one with the reset butti=on but as thye need a manual rest, probably not.

My zanussi TD4212W is tumbling but not drying the clothes.


Check the heating element, I'm sure it has burnt through.

Clothes not drying


Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.

Tumble dryer not heating up so clothes not drying


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

The programme goes through the motions of a tumble dry but the clothes are not drying


Washer Dryers have a built in seperate heating element with a blower fan to dry the clothes. Your problem could be a simple thermostat/overload reset or there could be more sinister problems. This would be hard to decipher without looking at the machine itself.

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.
