Open the door, at the top of the recessed door opening you will see two round plastic caps. Remove these and you will see screw behind that you have to remove. Some models the caps are on the right and left hand sides. Slide the top towards the back after removing screws and the top will lift off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Don't mess with it. Call Miele. The front seal is probably worn and caused the belt to break.

The problem is likely with the centrifugal switch on the dryer motor. This switch connects the start winding of the motor which provides additional torque at startup. Once the dryer is up to speed, the switch disconnects the start winding. If it malfunctions, the dryer will not turn and the motor will hum. By spinning the drum, you are providing enough torque for the start winding to be able to take over and bring the dryer up to speed.

You may be able to correct this by simply lubricating the centrifugal switch which may be sticking. I am not sure if the centrifugal switch is replacable, or if a new motor is necessary if lubricating does not solve your problem

Hi cquanche...

Here are a few things to check:
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
But do not trust the ohm meter all the time, because sometimes it will give a false positive that the fuse is ok when in reality it is faulty.
DO THE FOLLOWING TEST:
To test your thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse remove the wires from the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse and check for continuity, if you DO NOT have continuity then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.
This test of the thermal fuses,thermistor,thermostat, will show if the thermal fuse,thermostat,thermister is really faulty or not.
Check your blower wheel to make sure it is secure to the shaft and not plugged with lint,socks,etc.
If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset.
You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, remove both wires from the thermal fuse and put the test probes to each of the ends of the thermal fuse, if no continuity then replace the thermal fuse.
DO THE FOLLOWING: Remove the wires and tape them together and try to start the dryer.If the dryer starts then replace the fuse.
A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

The dryer doesn´t work


I had the same problem with my dryer. The Miele technician came and took a look at it. There was nothing wrong with any parts. My vent pipe was kind of crumbling, so he replaced that. He then scrubbed and washed the lint filter with dishwasher soap and
the green scrubber, He also did a PC update of the firmware. My
unit already had the latest version, but he did erase all the error codes.

After all these rather simple steps the dryer started working like a charm.

He said the most probable caused was gummed lint filter because of using the dryer sheets. Miele dryers are designed to prevent static cling and he advised not use these sheets as they contain wax-like substance.

I would suggest scrub cleaning the lint filter first and see if that 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.
