Miele T358C dryer. water not being pumped out of the sump??

Sump is under the condenser, this fills with water and then the machine goes to cold spin and the alarm lite goes on indicating the removeable pan is full...altho the machine has been plumbed to dump water out of the vent at the rear.. I bought it old second hand.

TRY THIS:
In some cases cleaning the condenser out and drying the unit well will allow the unit to function again. Once a month you need to empty the condenser unit, it is normal for there to be some water in the tubes when you do this, you then have to flush the condenser by pouring water through it in either your sink or tub. Make sure that there is plenty of room around the drier for air circulation; and empty the water container often or reconfigure your pluming arangement to reduce the water left in the container. The circuitry of this unit it sensitive to high humidity and can cause the unit to not function properly. So with condensing dryers you have to work on keeping them clean. Let me know how it goes. Later :?) DRRXR


TIP OF THE DAY--
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.

Kenmore washer no spin


Does the washer drain the water quickly?? Are there any error codes?? Usually the drain pump sump is clogged and not draining, thereby not letting the unit advance to spin.

The full tank light remains on even though the tank is empty. Is there a sensor which stops the dryer from restarting


The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.
The tank capacity is about 3.5 lt., enough for a drying cycle.

- Remove the screw (1) which secures the support micro and use a screwdriver for the two hooks which secure it to the sump.

- Lift them simultaneously and unthread the micro support towards outside

Putting upside down the support you can access the floating microswitch.
25069013-hcssld2gpo2sm22yg24xoxcy-3-9.jpg Inside the sump there is the float.
To extract it rotate the float 90° clockwise as shown.
Lift it up, rotate it towards outside and extract it.

While reassembling the pump, the float and the tank microswitch, repeat the same operations backwards, paying attention that when the micro support is remounted it is necessary to use a screwdriver in the fissure (indicated by the arrow), to lift the micro lever and lean it over the float (if this operation is not carried out the lever of the micro comes up alongside the float (it deforms) and the two components do not function anymore.

It can be mechanical or electrical malfunction. I would check tank microswitch, float and lever.
Below is explained how the condensate drainage system works and that will facilitate fault detection.

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.

When rinsing/spinning the water comes out of the dispenser drawer


Hi,
I see this is under the dryer section, i am assuming its a washing machine or washer dryer.
If its leaking from the dispenser during the filling stage, this could be a blockage in the dispenser or as simple as the water pressure is too high,

If it leaks during the spin on the rinse cycle, this is generally a blockage on the outlet area (normally the sump hose/filter) remove the filter if fitted and check for blockages, if ther is no filter on this appliance, you will need to check the sump hose, this is located under the machine, mormally a black hose from the tank to the drain pump, remove from the tank end and look in there, Finally it could be a blockage at the end of the waste hose (grey one) it quite often gets blocked at the sink end.
Hope this helps.
Regards
Sussex engineer

Blows cold air , it still spins, but doesnt heat up.


Is this a condenser dryer or vented?

On the condensers, if the water collector is full it will only blow cold air. Sometimes the water pumps that bring the water to the collector bottles can go and it makes the dryer think that the bottle is full, therefore it will blow cold air.

Hope this helps!

My is70c tumble dryer is leaking water from the main filter at the bottom?


This model is a condenser dryer, at the bottom of the machine if you open up the flap you will see the condenser on the left hand side, the manufacturer recommends that you clean this unit once every month and also empty the reservoir and clean the fluff filter after every use. While this may seem like a lot of hard work there is a very good reason for this. I suspect that your problem is due to a build up of fluff and or gunge in the condenser and bottom of the machine. Remove the condenser and give it a good clean of all fluff, you can run water through it either in the sink or bath as the best way to do this it is very fiddley using just your hands. Next check to see if there is a build up of water in the back the machine where the condenser usually sits, you will have to lie on your stomach and reach into the back of the machine (OBVIOUSLY ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY BEFORE YOU DO THIS!) along the floor of the machine you will feel a channel cut into the plastic which runs into the sump at the back of the machine, if you have not cleaned the machine properly this is probably blocked and is the culprit. With this blocked the water is unable to travel to the pump that takes the water from the condenser into the resevoir at the top of the machine, and therefore it stays in the machine and can get thrown about onto the electrics and could cause the machine to cut out and trip your electrics! If this is not blocked check the black rubber pipe leading from the pump to the reservoir is not blocked, failing that perhaps the pump (in the plastic case at the back of the machine) is faulty and will need to be replaced.
