Question about Miele T9800 Electric Dryer

Open Question

How do you remove the top of a miele T9800 dryer? I have loosened 2 side screws covered by caps but still will not budge

I have loosened the 2 screws at the top sides underneath plastic caps. The reason I want to take top off is there is something appears to have gone through the drum perferations at rear and is making a noise. Hopefully I can remove it from the top.

Blower fan has fluff on stuck to it. It may even be disstorted. If you are really unlucky then it's done the blower fan motor bearings as well.

just line up horizontally the two, (a bit larger holes) in order to unscrew the two screws behind the cover. they release the drum bearing from the back. This will give you access to the heating element

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.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

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.

I have a Miele T9800 dryer and it stopped working and the vent/filter check light came on. I checked the filter and vent and both are clear and removed the rear cover and made sure the heating element...


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?

Can't seem to get heat My Miele dryer is 3 years old


hi,

if your condenser is blocked the airflow is restricted and can cause the thermostat at the rear of the unit behind the cover to create an open circuit. you would need to remove the rear cover and check with an electrical meter to see if the thermostat has resistance. it looks like a small round disc with a wire going to each side of it. you can order a replacement thermostat from Miele but remember to also clen your condenser before running it again.

Hope this helps.

Pop the top miele t9820 dryer gas


Open the door, at the top of the recessed door opening you will see two round plastic caps. Remove these and you will see screw behind that you have to remove. Some models the caps are on the right and left hand sides. Slide the top towards the back after removing screws and the top will lift off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
