SOURCE: Miele Tumble dryer will not produce heat .

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

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 one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape and running the dryer to check to see if the element is red or not,
or with an ohm meter check the two terminals of the thermostat/thermister
after you have removed the wires, the thermostat/thermistor should have/show continuity across the terminals.
If the coil heats up, or the thermostat/thermistor shows an open circut
then replace the thermostat/thermistor as it is defective.
If it overheats the dryer will not operate properly.
It's located on the blower housing.
It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter/continuity checker, if no continuity,
replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
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.

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

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


Martin,
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,
Pete

Why is my Tumble Drier keeps beeping without stopping a few minutes into the drying program?


It sounds like the carbon brushes are probably worn down - they ride on the drum (in the top ) and determine the amount of moisture left in the clothes for drying - they connect to the drum and the metal bar inside the dryer - A wet clothing item conducts between the two giving the dryer an idea of how much moisture is left in the load - equal to how much time / heat is needed to dry load as required. These brushes wear out and need to be replaced over time

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.
