    I HAVE THE SAME / SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH MY WT945s.

    THE WASH CYCLE IS FINE BUT THE TUMBLE DRY CYCLE IS NOT HEATING UP. IT IS TUMBLING THE DAMP CLOTHES AS THOUGH IT IS HEATING THOUGH.

    THE ONLY VISIBLE CLUE IS THE WASH INDICATOR "LED" ON THE FRONT PANEL IS FLASHING QUITE FAST.

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!

Miele WT945 drier removal


Hi dear.
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.

Miele WT945 Dryer Problems - stage by stage fixing (Introduction)


After two years of regular dryer fan seizure, and having called out a Miele technician to fix an unrelated problem on the WT945 (main water heater shorted), I pumped him for more information on the dryer side of things. I have to say he was extremely helpful and straightforward with his advice. So – with much help from the expert – I’ve attempted a complete summary of the dryer problem and its various solutions, which hopefully may be of interest to fellow sufferers. Good luck!


Introduction

Dryer fan seizure seems to be a common problem with the WT945 as it ages. The symptom is (usually) a flashing ‘dryer’ light on the front panel and wet, cold clothes instead of a good drying cycle. If you’re familiar with your Miele sounds, there is also the absence of the high-pitched fan motor noise when drying (although the main drum still ‘tumbles’).

Before you attempt a fix, please be aware of safety issues. If you’re not confident about working on mains appliances with large, heavy moving parts, I would not recommend moving beyond Stage 1. In any case, always work with the power off, and beware of the heater (the long rectangular box sitting on top of the drum) – it can get very hot indeed.

First understand your components. When you take the top off the machine (screws under white plastic caps on each side of the top, about 5 cm in from the front), you will see a very obvious electric motor at the top rear right corner of the unit. This is the fan motor, which (through a rubber belt) drives a shaft that goes into a much larger, flattish unit bolted onto the back of the drum. This larger unit is the ‘fan box’, and hidden within it is the dryer fan that moves the air that does the drying (similar to a hairdryer). The small nylon ‘fan’ mounted on the front of the motor shaft (which cools the motor itself) is a red herring – this isn’t the fan we’re concerned with.

You will undoubtedly drop tools into the machine at some stage. Don’t panic and don’t mess about with magnets on strings etc – it’s far quicker to open the whole front panel which hinges on the right like a door. Take out the detergent tray, undo three Torx screws revealed around the edges of the tray holder, undo the three bolts behind the main door of the machine (these aren’t as fundamental as they look – nothing is going to fall off!). Open the filter flap and unclip the filter drain outlet from the inside of the flap. Open the door by breaking the seal and overcoming the spring clip at the base of the left hand side (can be quite stiff). Access is now pretty easy to the ‘floor’ of the machine to retrieve your tools. When closing the front again, don’t forget to feed the emergency door release plastic tab through the hole at the top of the filter flap aperture, otherwise it will be hidden inside the machine next time you want to use it.

See my next tip 'Stage 1 fix' to start work.

Clothes not drying - fan ok, heat ok


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.

Miele WT 945 Washer Dryer - Spin not working + Water Inlet/Drain Light Flashes


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.

Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
