Re: Miele Dryer problem

Sounds like the sensors is dirty, or there is scale or deposits in the bottle. Clean out the bottle with a descaler if it has any scale (white or brown) deposits in it. If it is clear and still a problem, the sensors is inside the bottle holding section. Make sure there is not any fluff or dirt in there by giving it a hoover outand a gentle brush.

The empty container/pc light comes on after approx 5 mins of drying cycle even when the container is empty

at the back of the dryer there should be a plastic tube from top to bottom ( this is the overflow pipe from the water container that needs to be emptied after each use, if the container is allowed to fill up, the water gts picked up by this pipe and collects at the base of the machine, stupid idea, i know) undo the clip at the bottom and empty the tube, also, with the tube still of, tilt the dryer and if loads of water comes out where u disconnected the tube you just need to get the water out. re connect the tube and bobs your uncle. hope this helps. p.s u may want to remove the top cover ( 2 screws ) and blow down the tube to make sure it aint blocked. when re fitting the tube, dont be scared of bending it to get it back into the slot where it tucks into the machine

Indesit condenser tumble dryer water light always on even though container empty

Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...
