Yesterday I went to a BBQ and their was a Zanussi TC 482W (like Chris's) in the kitchen. The owner said a while ago that it was on its last legs and sounded like it was drumming. I then heard it at the BBQ and it was making a drumming sound. Please could you give me advice. How old is it anyway?

Thank You

The dryer is from 1998-2000. The condense tank is stupid being at the bottom rather than on the fasia. C energy

Yeah, Dom (my mate) knew it was old. I'm gonna do a new thread about the replacement because they are gonna replace it.

We have a Zanussi TC481W dryer from 1999 and it works perfectly, even during heavy use. Aquarius8000, we have our dryer on top of our washer, so the placement of the water tank is fine for us. When we thought it was broken (a burning smell was coming out due to overdrying), we found out that most of Zanussi's dryers have their water tank at the bottom.

Whats wrong with zanussi as I was looking at a zannussi thread by you and you said you liked them! Why not?

i like the older zanussi's not the current ones, i had a very dodgy machine from them back in december before i had the beko, it lasted 1 week.
i know i might have been just a one off but i just lost all faith in them, theyer customer support wasnt that good eather :(
