Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Gavin from JA thanks for your question. I’ll help you with your dryer problem. When the fault first started to occur would it refuse to restart/continue the cycle if you immediately pressed start but then sometime later start fine.
Thanks for that quite a common issue across most of the Zanussi range. Do you plan on doing a repair yourself?
Zanussi's do this when they have an Insulation resistance fault. Before the Insulation resistance gets too low and starts tripping your electric they stop working. 90% of the time the cause is the heating element. If you have a friend who's a sparky he'll be able to do an 'IR' test between the live and earth conductors at the plug and take a reading then if you disconnect the cables to the element and re run the test it will confirm if it is definitely the element causing the fault
No problem. I favour White Knight they've been making dryers a long time and haven't changed the design much because they are good machines. The parts are also reasonably priced if you should need any. One thing that's really important to do with the sensor dryers is religiously clean the filter and condenser as fluff build up on or around the sensors stops them working properly. Here's a link to a site that sells them.
Please remember to rate my help this evening and if you'd like anymore info just let me know.
