i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

SOURCE: I have a Miele T9800

Hi - it makes me wonder as why we always tend to do things first prior to seeking the right/correct advice.

A T9800 Miele is not your everyday cheap dryer as you will know - the questions is have you still got your user Manual and if you do - have you read it carefully - it will tell where the problem lies and how to clean it.

I cannot grasp the fact that you would remove the rear access panel for a heater bank to check the resetable over temperature unit.

The machine clearly indicated a vent/filter error not a heat error - I know at this moment you have and are swearing & calling me names...

I will let you cool down a little ....................and I will tell you what you should have done instead of removing that panel Ok?

SOURCE: Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??

We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

DRYER STOPS/STARTS DOESN'T GET HOT ENOUGH


dryer duct blockage caused thermal limiters to trip. four t 20 screws remove the heater bank cover on the back of the dryer. unplug the dryer. unplug the dryer. did i forget to mention, unplug the dryer? remove the heater bank cover, and press the three red buttons in the center of each thermal limiter. at least one of them should click when you press it. replace the cover, plug the dryer in. it will now heat, but if you dont fix the blockage it will trip again.

Hi, My dryer does not get hot anymore. its blows cool and takes 3 hours to dry now. any suggestions. Clint is clean and not blocked also


Our Miele 9800 dryer didn't heat and we called the service technician from Miele. Our thermal elements needed to be reset. Pull the plug before you do this. Take off the small back panel with a phillips screwdriver. Reset the the three thermal elements. Put the cover back on, plug in and try again. A Miele is like owning a Mercedes Benz or a BMW. This is a high technology German product that needs attention at times.

Help - Miele Dryer Model T9800 problem!


The belt is most likely broken. The front drum bearing seal may have worn out and caused this to happen. Call Miele. You'll be better off.
