Question about Miele T9800 Electric Dryer
A loud clunking noise - the vent/filter check light came on plastic Looked in the vent and broken parts which looks like a fan or something. I cannot find online any pictures of parts to point to. The part is definitely broken. Where can I find/buy a new part and can you talk me through to replace the part?
Yes, your right, it is the blower fan for the dryer, something may have gotten down the filter element housing and broke it, or just from heat and time.
Yes, you can fix it if your somewhat mechanically inclined.
It is not a hard job, but must be done correctly.
I will send you a webpage with some parts choices.
I do not know where you location is so I cannot send you to the direct webpage.
Please rate me

Youtube video on Miele dryer repair, not your model but will probably dissassemble the same way.

Welcome to the world of appliance repair. A dryer is a good place to start. Check Repairclinic.com for parts and help, it's a good site. You're going to have to take the dryer all apart. The trickiest part is the belt. Note how it goes, or you're doomed. While in there, vacuum all the lint, it's a fire hazard, and gets into places it doesn't belong. Use a high temp grease on the roller shafts, and replace the belt while you're at it, they are cheap. The glides and felt need to be in top shape, they keep the dryer from eating clothes. On some models you need to pop the top. Use a putty knife to push the spring catches at the front corners. Inspect all around for bearings and things that might wear out.

UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
I am not sure what plastic part you have, but there should be no small plastic parts in your dryer drum or at least not the ones I have worked on before.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps
