Customer Question

Have a Zanussi 7114w Model SPIN Dryer, PROD NUMBER###-##-####00 SER NUMBER 34400451.
Switch the spin dryer on select the dial for length of spin [in minutes] then press start button, it clicks but drum does not spin, sometimes it does, two thirds of the time it does not start. you hear a slight whirring noise.
Would a worn or damaged door inside seal cause this.

Good afternoon,

My name is ***** ***** unlikely the seal at fault, its most likely the sensor which checks the door is closed, worn out brushes on the motor or an issue with the drive belt.

Do you get any lights flashing on the display when the drum doesnt spin, can you also advise if the dryer start to heat up?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
There is no display on this model its a spin dryer, where is the sensor which checks the door is closed, and where are the brushes on the motor located.

I will opt out as I am not prepared to provide assistance based on someone looking to self fix, when they dont know where to find basic components, the risk if injury is to great, I urge you to get an engineer to resolve this fault for you, as its clearly hardware related, and your not equipped to repair it yourself.
