Miele Dryer heater bank

Are you able to assist in getting access to the heater bank. I have started the job, but not sure whether the drum needs to be removed?

The dryer is a Miele Novotronic T565C

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Im trying to replace the drum belt on a Miele t7734 tumble dryer, but cant seem to get around the front or back of the drum to get the belt around it. Am I supposed to dismantle the whole machine to do...


Some dryers disassemble from the front, making it possible to slip the replacement belt over the drum and connect it to the tension idler and the motor pulley.

Dryer belt t9800 keeps breaking


worn felt seal on the front of the drum. felt has worn away exposing the rubber, when the dryer gets warm the rubber gets sticky. this causes loud vibrations and friction. the drum wont turn so the belt breaks. i would not trust this job to any one but a miele tech, as it is very complicated and someone that does not know how to work on this dryer can cause more harm than good.

DRYER STOPS/STARTS DOESN'T GET HOT ENOUGH


dryer duct blockage caused thermal limiters to trip. four t 20 screws remove the heater bank cover on the back of the dryer. unplug the dryer. unplug the dryer. did i forget to mention, unplug the dryer? remove the heater bank cover, and press the three red buttons in the center of each thermal limiter. at least one of them should click when you press it. replace the cover, plug the dryer in. it will now heat, but if you dont fix the blockage it will trip again.

I have a Miele T9800 dryer and it stopped working and the vent/filter check light came on. I checked the filter and vent and both are clear and removed the rear cover and made sure the heating element...


Hi - it makes me wonder as why we always tend to do things first prior to seeking the right/correct advice.

A T9800 Miele is not your everyday cheap dryer as you will know - the questions is have you still got your user Manual and if you do - have you read it carefully - it will tell where the problem lies and how to clean it.

I cannot grasp the fact that you would remove the rear access panel for a heater bank to check the resetable over temperature unit.

The machine clearly indicated a vent/filter error not a heat error - I know at this moment you have and are swearing & calling me names...

I will let you cool down a little ....................and I will tell you what you should have done instead of removing that panel Ok?

Blower motor access


You cant you have to remove the control panel, dryer top, top heat shield, dryer front, front drum support, belt, and then the drum in that order to get to the heater. I have been working on these since they have been out and have never changed a heater in one, They just dont burn out. Unplug the dryer and take the access cover off where the power cord attaches to the dryer and make sure the wires are not loose or burnt.
