Tumble Dryer facial panel types

 

 

 

 

If these fault codes apply to your Tumble dryer it should have a fascia panel on it like one of those shown below, there are four known variants covering quite literally hundreds of different models sold in the UK and across the EU.

Error Codes for Env06 Tumble dryer boards:

 

E00

    Hi…I have an Electrolux EDI 97170W condenser dryer. After 80mins of use, error E54 error code will appear. I also noticed the tumbling action only goes clockwise and no longer go clockwise like it used to.

    Could you help me understand what could be the problem? Does it involve changing the main circuit board?

    hi there… we have a zanussi zdc68560w and have a err code 50 showing on the panel. have you any idea what err 50 could mean.
    many thanks in anticipation.

  3. hi

    Hello, i have a AEG T65280AC dryer, PNC: 916 096 676 01, with TC3 facial panel.

    The dryer is not heating. First i have checked the heater. The heater is ok. I replaced also the NTC.

    I got the error codes E71/E72, but i found only one NTC, placed in the front fan housing.

    Can you help me with ethe diagnostic programm and how to solve this problem.

    Thank you.

    Hi!

    Thanks for your guides and your instructional videos!

    We have at home an Electrolux EDC77550w that stopped in the middle of a drying and won’t turn ON again. I am afraid I cannot access the diagnostics if the panel (similar to the TC4 on this page) doesn’t turn ON. I got a copy of the repair manual, but do not now where to start the diagnostics. Do you have some suggestion?

    Thanks in advance!

    Great helpful video, I have a Zanussi ZDC68560W that was working just fine but has now packed up so I did your test. on the first test I moved the control to the right the lights all flashed and C7 was on the LED it seems to be ok, I then moved it one more right and a C5 appeared and the a 111 appeared in the readout, then a ESE appeared I moved it one more and checked the pump a C13 was shown on the LED the water pump was working fine checked. Then C9 then a ESE, moved again C8 then a flashing 14 the ESE, now I get a E62 fault on each turn

    I have a zanussi zdc 47200w. Product no 916 094 547 type p542553. Stops after a few mins and flashes red with beeping. Done a test and the start button flashes 7 times. Any help would be appreciated

    I have a Zanussi ZD4700W condensor drier
    The other day it stopped mid cycle.
    All the LED lights went out and now there are no lights

    I have tested mains continuity all the way to the input plug at the PCB. The small transformer has small resistances showing so it is not blown.
    Any ideas please? Seems like PCB so I bought another (used!) with correct serial numbers. Now it works but the LED light says ‘cooling’ and no other lights work.
    Is it time for a new machine?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have an electrolux ED78550W tumbler drier. No error code. The program is starting, the display is working, time is shown, relay switches (audible) but nothing else happens. No rotating, no pumping, no heating. What can it be?

    Hi,

    I’ve got a problem with my AEG Lavatherm T57820.
    Error message “Err” flashes 3 times when I either press start/stop or the door button. Does that on any chosen program.
    I did change the door lock sensor but the issue persists.
    It is bought 2005 and since then I have changed the following items. Belt, heating element and circuit board. all in last 3 years. Some said I’m crazy but the parts weren’t that expensive.

    kind regards,
    G

    I have an AEG LAVATHERM T65270AC Tumble dryer which has stopped heating up.

    How do I get into diagnostics mode? It has a TC3 Facia panel.

    I have had the heater unit off and found all of the heater element has continuity. The thermostat has continuity but the dome shaped sensor with two wires (I’m guessing might be another thermal switch or fuse) has no continuity or resistance value. Is that normal?

    I have also found 240 volts on the heater plug at all three heater contacts when the machine is turned on. Yet the thing does not heat up?

    If you can help on this matter I would greatly appreciate it.

    Kind regards

    Keith
