Question about Miele WT 2780 Front Load Washer
1 year old Miele WT2780 washer dryer. washing ok but no heat when just on drying programme.
Posted by Anonymous on
I have a Miele WT2780 where the fan motor stops spinning. This will stop the dryer from working even though the element heats up. The failure of the fan will not blow the air across the heating element and thus into the drum. New motors fitted are around £400 min. I am never going to buy another Miele - mine failed after 6yrs.
Another problem is the thermostat can trip. This is a small button inside the machine (TURN OFF MAINS ELECTRIC AND UNPLUG FROM WALL then remove the lid) on the right hand side of the alloy centre channel at the top. It has two wires connected to the switch and in the centre there is a small black button. Press it firmly and it will heat up again. If this keeps tripping then the air duct could be blocked with fluff. This is my next task as mine now trips more frequently so will post back here with instructions.
Update 12/10/16 - problem returned so dismantled top of air duct having removed the lid - tight torx screws - inside chamber was full of fluff. Removed and cleaned - all good now!.

Main wash light flashing is a heating fault. You either have a faulty temp sensor (NTC) or the pressure chamber has blocked and the heater element has popped.

You can get fluff out by opening the small lower left front panel with the yellow plastic lever/opening tool (on the left hand side of the washing powder draw). Make sure you place an empty container under the tap on the opening panel door to collect the condenser water. Water will flow as soon as you turn the big plastic dial (which holds the fluff). Once water stops flowing, completely unwind, take out the fluff dial, clean and retighten dial back. Close lid and you are set to go!

I've just published some 'Tips' on the WT945's dryer problems. Apparently they won't appear on fixya.com's Tip List for another 24 hours, so here are the URLs. Hope this helps - Stage 1 is particularly relevant.

Most likely brushes. Fit carbon brushes part no.4297411 as they are less then half the price of the brush module Part no. 4229779.
