Re miele t4222c tumble dryer When it's turned on it runs for about 5 seconds then trips the electric.... Any advice please

Caution: never enter an appliance internals with power applied!!!
You can die if you ignore this!!! You are dealing with 220 Volts!!!

My first check would be to open the unit & check for accumulated lint. The motor may be starved for cooling air (happened to me with my son's dryer). If so, get the vacuum & clean it thoroughly. Then find out why lint accumulated inside so it will not happen again.

My next check would be the dryer exhaust pipe. You can chase out accumulated lint with a simple brush tool from the corner hardware store and an electric drill. (You should do this yearly anyway).

If everything looks well inside, you need to decide if it is the heater element or the motor that is tripping the breaker. With power unplugged, disconnect the heating coil & tape the hot lead(s) with electrical tape.

Reconnect power & turn the unit on. If it trips the breaker, the motor is your problem. If it runs, the heating coil is your problem.

If it is the motor, order a replacement online.

If it is the heating coil, inspect it to insure it has not decided to short out on warming up (and tripping the breaker.) You could easily enough replace the coil online if needed, but simple mechanical actions may suffice.

When it runs, reassemble & replace the unit.

Good Luck,

Miele tumble dryer

Maybe time to replace it. How can it be too much detergent? That would have the effect of lubricating the seals!

Reset the thermostat

If the dryer has dryness sensor strips they may have a coating on them repelling moisture from wet clothes. The brains might think them clothes is dry. Clean the sensors with windex and party on.

Miele t4262c not heating up

The thermostat is jammed-located behind the rear central panel,
Remove the 4 screws and prise of panel to reveal the thermostatic switch which is held in by one screw and the heat element that is held in by metal tabs. Both these items have 2 wires attached. Unscrew thermostat and chuck it on the floor a few times to juggle and reset. Really. Replace and enjoy the heat back !

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


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.

Miele T9820 runs except no heat

you have probably blown your thermostat especially if your condenser is blocked and hasn't been cleaned. this causes the unit to over heat and to protect the heater element the thermostat blows and breaks the electrical circuit. you will need a Miele service tech or service agent to repair the unit.

Probably the heater relay - do you have any fault codes?
