Sounds like the sensors is dirty, or there is scale or deposits in the bottle. Clean out the bottle with a descaler if it has any scale (white or brown) deposits in it. If it is clear and still a problem, the sensors is inside the bottle holding section. Make sure there is not any fluff or dirt in there by giving it a hoover outand a gentle brush.

Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...

Hi the problems is not a sensor its the codenser unit. Above the water collector should be a panel on the front of your machine, open the panel and you will see the condeser.covered in fluff, simply remove the condeser and clean it under an outside tap after removing as much fluff as possible by hand. Push back into place when clean and hey presto back to new again.

The empty container/pc light comes on after approx 5 mins of drying cycle even when the container is empty


at the back of the dryer there should be a plastic tube from top to bottom ( this is the overflow pipe from the water container that needs to be emptied after each use, if the container is allowed to fill up, the water gts picked up by this pipe and collects at the base of the machine, stupid idea, i know) undo the clip at the bottom and empty the tube, also, with the tube still of, tilt the dryer and if loads of water comes out where u disconnected the tube you just need to get the water out. re connect the tube and bobs your uncle. hope this helps. p.s u may want to remove the top cover ( 2 screws ) and blow down the tube to make sure it aint blocked. when re fitting the tube, dont be scared of bending it to get it back into the slot where it tucks into the machine

It's most likely one of the heat/humidity sensor tubes that needs to be replaced. This has happened twice to my T494C in 12 years. Miele (or your dealer) will come out and replace it for a cost. Do NOT leave wet clothes (or semi-dry clothes) in the dryer for any length of time when the dryer is not operating. Apparently this is one of the problems.

it could be fluff blocking or jamming the condensate pump, can you hear the pump running? access to the pump is through a small service panel at the back. it is hard to get the pump out there is a spring latch to releaseit which is hard to find until you know where it is.

Bosch tumble dryer


I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.

Water empty light wont go out


the black wire that was moving water from down condenser to up - water container - remove it. Use cotton swabs to "clean" the holes, do a run of the dryer without that black wire connected ( carefull, cause some wated might spill at this point), reattach black wire, and enjoy :)

It worked for me anyway. ( fingers crossed, its been on for 20 mins and still no red lights flashing)
