When I press start I can hear a quiet click followed by a second click then nothing. Does this help you as I would like to identify pump or pub board
When I press the start button I hear a faint click from behind the front Panel followed by a second click then nothing.hope this helps as I would like to know if it's the pump or panel
Any test I can do would help?
I would say that is likely to be the PCB. Sounds like the relay is working but the triac is no operating.
I have removed pump, cleaned, checked impeller and made sure drain tubes are clear, pump,runs and removes water from tank.
Just did a full load of drying no problem, now won't start for second load.
Fault showing now is 5 red flashes and 1 green
Has my fault changed?
I appreciate your suggestion George but with the PCB at £103.00 a pop difficult to take the risk on 'maybe' and find out it is a connector not the PCB
It's a shame the PCB hasn't burnt out or fallen to bits or some kind of physical sign.
£103.00 goes a long way towards a new dryer.
I may take out the PCB and have a look for any problems such as dry joints etc.
I'll call them for prices.
I stripped out the PCB board and sent to QER Ltd who have just called to say there are no faults on the board.
I'll put it back in, suggestion from QER is that Zanussi advise them the wiring loom can be faulty so make sure all the connections onto the PCB are tight.
Failing that I am going to check the brushes on the motor as sometimes there is a hum and drum doesn't turn over. I replaced the capacitor a few months ago so I don't think that would be the issue and the dryer still wont start if I rotate the drum when the humming occurs.
Maybe the PCB clicks because there is no response from the component i.e. the motor.
Anyway, board back on, then check brushes, then bin it I think and get a new one.
Steve, there are no brushes on the motor.. but if you are now getting a hum that wasn't there before, change the drive capacitors.There are two capacitors on the motor and the rating of the capacitors depend on which motor is fitted to your appliance...
Look at the image to know which type..
Make sure you fit the correct ones.
I replaced a capacitor a few months ago but there was no mention of two being needed, just replaced the large on and wondered what the second capacitor was for as it looked to be connected to the first!
I will check the one I replaced for size and look at replacing the second one too.
