No heat when drying


I have a Miele WT2780 where the fan motor stops spinning. This will stop the dryer from working even though the element heats up. The failure of the fan will not blow the air across the heating element and thus into the drum. New motors fitted are around £400 min. I am never going to buy another Miele - mine failed after 6yrs.

Another problem is the thermostat can trip. This is a small button inside the machine (TURN OFF MAINS ELECTRIC AND UNPLUG FROM WALL then remove the lid) on the right hand side of the alloy centre channel at the top. It has two wires connected to the switch and in the centre there is a small black button. Press it firmly and it will heat up again. If this keeps tripping then the air duct could be blocked with fluff. This is my next task as mine now trips more frequently so will post back here with instructions.
Update 12/10/16 - problem returned so dismantled top of air duct having removed the lid - tight torx screws - inside chamber was full of fluff. Removed and cleaned - all good now!.

It takes 50 min to dry a load of clothes in my 400 series electric dryer can you tell me the problem. I checked the exhaust it looks clear thanks.


It could be heating problem and best way is to check for continuity in heating element and sensors and thermostats and limiters and thermistors in the dryer

Still more of the same


The exhaust is clogged or restricted holding too much heat in the exhaust housing or the limit t-stat has gone bad. This is the t-stat sitting next to the thermal fuse. Good luck.

My Kenmore 400 series is taking too long to dry


Make sure the vent and tube are clear and not blocked in any way, if clear try washing off the lint screen with hot water, softener will clog the filter
and not allow proper air flow, water will bead up on screen if this is true

Maytag Bravos Dryer (1 mo. old) timer does not change from start


Maytag Bravos 400 Series Dryer purchased August 2009 - November 2009 required repair as I also experience the timer readjusting itself to excessive extended drying time when clothing was bone dry and hot. Sometimes extended to 1 hour 40 minutes! Serviceman stated problem was the Sensors in the dryer. Part number 8577274 Thermister and "Old Ohmed out open" whatever that means as listed on my repair ticket. Have not had that particular problem since. Make sure your dryer vents from dryer to outside are clean and clear of lint. Will help immensely. I have many other issues with this dryer it has been down FOUR times in 9 months. Fighting with Maytag to replace this lemon!
