Question about Dryers
My zanusssi condenser works fine but has suddenly started making a loud whistling noise almost to the level of a siren. Took all the washing out and turned it on again, still the same noise. Looked inside, nothing unusual. Any ideas?
Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

sounds like a new drive belt is required. pull the machine out remove the mains supply!!!!
remove the top and look into the back of the machineif you cant see the belt them remove the back of the machine, it's like a small fan felt from a car it's either come off or disintegrated in which case you'll need a new one.

i think the timer knob will be binding in the facia panel. you could try working some washing up liquid round the knob to free it up (not oil) the timer may still be damaged but freeing the knob is worth a try a new timer varies from around £37
