It is very complicated work. I can suggest you should not involve doing that but if you know what you are doing try that out. See if it helps.
Common problem: Stuck drying air fan shaft.
1- Unplug machine from power. Remove top cover.
2- RHS at the back,on outer drum horizontally mounted motor,drives a belt.
3- Try to rotate motor shaft (impeller) by hand, see if it's hard to rotate. Try to make it free to rotate.
3- If you have a capacitance meter, check value of capacitor should be in range of 2.5 uF if not replace capacitor.
Beyond that you need to get tech. to assist your machine. I hope that helps so far. Thanks.
Open the door manually. Open the drain flap on front left bottom The door release can be seen hanging, pull the cord, the door will open. Close and open the door 2 or 3 times and your machine will work ok.
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 - Stages 2 and 3 are particularly relevant.
take top off. you will see drier manifold going across top of machine with stats mounted on it. one or more of these stats is resetteble ie has a little button in the middle. press to reset. some hotpoint have a thermal fuse mounted on the manifold so if present, check this for continuity as well. with top still off, put on dry and check fan working as well. if you get it going and fault reoccurs, then there is a blockage in the drier duct
I just had a Miele tech fix this. There are several causes for this. One cause is a motor fault with the fan motor or a bad belt. Second issue is a blocked up condenser. Finally the issue is electronic and the electronic panel needs to be replaced. The electronic panel consists of small relays that can burn out.
My issue was the electronic panel.
To test a blocked up condenser, is to take the top panel off, and spin the fan motor (by hand). If you feel resistance, you have a clogged condenser which must be replaced (Always run 'Remove Fluff' cycle so this never happens after every dryer use).
To test the fan, take the connector off and 'carefully' connect to 220v to the fan motor (checking polarity). Only do this, after you reset the switch (found in the rectangle box in the middle of the Miele metalwork on top) and made sure the fan does not work automatically when a drying cycle is selected.
The most expensive repair is the eectronic module which costs £175 plus £99 Miele callout.

The fan gets stuck because of the build up in the condenser itself. £400 will fix it damn them. I should have bought a Candy. Am sure that there is a service mode that can flush the condenser, because it is fitted as standard on new models. The reset of the micro switch should do it and try to free off the fan manually. Miele should be more forthcoming about this, taking into account the price of the damn thing in the first place.
