    Thank you very much, I'll try to find "handy man", who will follow your instructions. I am quite sure that has to be something "mechanical" , I hope it can be fixed easily. Regards, Gosia

If condenser water is not been collected in the reservoir, that means that you have a blockage in the condensed water lines, or that the pump is leaking.
To access the assembly you usually have to remove the panel at the rear, there you have to remove the heater and depending on the model the fan housing assembly.
Once in there you have to clean out the lines and make sure that the small orifice into the pump water container is clear.

Disconnect the appliance from start before disassembling.
The repair may be quite complicate, depending on the location of the water container.
If you decide to call a technician you can use the phone number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Have a Miele 1612 washer whose heater element comes on during any cold only program. As we are off-grid, any unnescesary power useage is unacceptable. Is there something I can reset, or do I just remo


Hi Ed ..
The following is from the Miele handbook and would indicate that the machine can have the water temperature adjusted...... However I suggest that by merely disconnecting/removing the element
the machine's temperature sensors would not allow the machine to work..
A compromise may be to select the lowest wash temperature (ie 30c) This is better than cold water for detergent economy and effectiveness, and machine life.. I understand your situation.
Good luck

Tap water line (cold water) The tap water connection is established using the inlet hose with the blue marking. If the washer is connected to this line only, the appliance will need to be reprogrammed to cold water fill only. Please contact your Miele dealer or Miele Customer Service for reprogramming instructions.

Why would the Dryer not heat after an international move from Austrailia 230V 50 hz to Thailand 220V 50 Hz, when programs, air movement, evrything else functions properly?


Your problem is one electric leg has no power. You are getting power for a single need. But you need double that power for the heating need.
like 110. And. 110. Equals 220 Soo 110 is supplying one need ,that needs only 110 But the heating coils need 220 that is where the second leg comes in... Be sure bothe breakers have powers going out. Into dryer

My miele tumbledrier ModelT560C makes a noise and sometimes trips the mains. The condenser is constantly wet with no fluff .


Hi - you may have a faulty condensate pump or something to do with this part of the unit - the heat exchanger or condensor will have a certain water residue which should draw off to the pump. In some rare cases the in efficient air circulation causes similar issues to what you are experiencing.

I am unsure about the noise as details are vague - there must be an electrical problem/fault which is serious enough to trip the circuit breaker "mains" as you commented.,

it could be fluff blocking or jamming the condensate pump, can you hear the pump running? access to the pump is through a small service panel at the back. it is hard to get the pump out there is a spring latch to releaseit which is hard to find until you know where it is.

Dryer runs no water enters condenser draw, empty water light on.


Remove the filter draw on the bottom left, and wash out under running water to flush out all fluff.
Reach inside opening and clean as much fluff anf gunge as you can from the cavity.
Get a plastic bag tie, reach and feel for a small at the rear of the compartment, and poke hole clear..
If this does not solve the prob, then it is probably a sticking or faulty float valve., or switch.
This involves a complete strip down to access these components.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?


By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?
