SOURCE: Not drying

I had the same problem with my dryer.

MAKE SURE THAT POWER IS OFF AND PLUG IS UNPLAGED AT WALL
On the back of the dryer there is a white metal cover in the centre with two philips screws. Once removed you will see metal box which has elements like a toaster built inside it.

You will see two sensors sticking out of top of metal box. The left one is the sensor for safety cut out in event of the dryer sensor on the right stopping working and letting the dryer overheat.

If you disconnect the left sensor 2 crimps and put multimeter on the left sensor two pins and if the meter beeps on continuety the sensor is ok. but if no beep the sensor is bad.

If sensor bad you can tempary bypass the sensor by joining the two cables together and try running dryer on a program and if heats up you know that you need to get new sensor.

WARNING! IF YOU LEAVE THE LEFT SAFETY SENSOR BYPASSED IF THE RIGHT HAND SIDE SENSOR MALFUNCTIONS THE TEMPERATURE WILL RISE AND CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE OR FIRE. THE PURPOSE OF THE RIGHT HAND SENSOR IS WHEN THE DRYER HEATS UP TO HEAT IT CUTS OUT AND WHEN DROPS DOWN IT HEATS UP AGAIN SAME AS AN OVEN.

You can maybe buy sensor from a meile dealer or RS COMPONENTS have the same sensor for £3.35 each.

NOTE: I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILY FOR DAMAGE OR INJURY IN MY ADVICE FOR REPAIR OF DRYER.

SOURCE: Dryer will not dry - drum will not turn

Just happened to mine also. The problem was that the Idler Pulley came loose from the drive belt. There is a switch on the idler pulley so that if there is no tension on it, the motor will not start and you will have the symptoms you describe. To reattach the Idler Pulley, remove the back plate surrounding the dryer exhaust. This will give you access to the Pulley. If the belt broke (unlikely with a new dryer such as yours), the fix is more involved. This dryer is the same as the Maytag MDE6700 - you can do a search for a service manual for that model and you can see the details. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Dryer Gets Too Hot!

Could be the heat switch on the motor or a grounded heat element

SOURCE: Problem with Miele Touchtronic T 9800 Dryer end indicator

You've most likely got a bad control board. You'll have to install a new one which can be a bit expensive but cheaper than a new machine by far. I recommend getting a service tech to replace it for you however if your handy you could replace it yourself. Just get the new control board from an appliance parts store, they should be able to look up which board you need as long as you bring them the model number.

Just purchased 2nd hand Miele novotronic w310. Does machine automatically stop? Cycle ends, anti crease light on and machine just tumbles clothes makes odd noise, then tumbles again. Is the normal?


NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
GOOD LUCK

MIELE T7634 going into cool down after 2 minutes, what could be the problem?


check the exhaust line for blockage, sometimes lint will build up and cause the het to build up, socks or other items may end up in there. or colapsed line going to outside, or birds mice etc. may need to check the outside of pipe also.

The on switch will not turn dryer on


Hi everyone. I would be grateful for any help. I have a Miele Novotronic T220 tumble dryer. I cannot switch the thing on! The finish lamp is lit continually, and I cannot start another drying cycle.
I have unplugged the machine and pressed the start button again, but nothing happens.
Has anyone got any ideas for a technophobe.
