When first got dryer did great job, now takes long time for clothes dry, keep lint filter cleaned and has good outlet flow
Dryer only produces very low heat. The lint trap only shows a small spot of lint at the bottom end of the trap when it used to show the whole length of the trap. The lint at the bottom is hard to remove as it must be wet when it hits the lint screen.
How do we get the heat back up. All knobs are set for high heat but it just produces a very low heat.
We have recently cleaned the outside of the dryer for lots of lint that had escaped through a hole in the outside venting hose. It ran just fine for about 2 weeks after the outside cleaning.

Remove and clean the lint filter each time it is used. The filter can be washed with warm soapy water to remove fabric softener residue from the screen.
Check the household fuses and circuit breakers. Most household dryers use two fuses or circuit breakers. It is possible for only one of them to trip and the dryer still tumble, but not heat.
The washer controls may have been improperly set. If the clothes are wetter than normal, coming from the washer, this could be the difficulty. If the gentle speed is selected for a normal load the washer will not spin adequately. High speed or extended spin removes more water from clothing decreasing drying time
A lint filter that is full of lint will restrict airflow and lengthen dry times. To keep your dryer working correctly, clean out the lint folder after each and every use. Check the lint filter for any buildup of fabric softener that will restrict airflow and wash with soapy water to clean. If the filter is damaged then replace it.
if the dryer seems to be running fine check the vent line and the duct that the lint filter slides into,most likely if it takes to long to dry clothes lint is blocking the air movement somewhere,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line,you should clean the dryer once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,if the vent line is long remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,remove the lint filter duct and clean it and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

if dryer is filled with lint or vent line is blocked the clothes will not dry correctly,shop vac is great for this it sucks and blows,vac out what you can see and then blow out the lint from back and on motor,clean out the lint duct,where ever you pull out your lint filter either on top or inside dryer you have to clean out the duct.now go outside and check the flapper,if it isn't blowing open or hardly opening i use a leaf blower and take off the vent line from the back of dryer and blow it out,good luck
your dryer is likely clogged up with lint .. that would be after the lint filter .. the pipe that carries the hot air out is usually completely clogged after that long .. it and the dryer itself (down inside) has to be cleaned about once a year to keep it tip top .. hopefully you can find someone that can take it apart and clean everythiing .. that should get you back to like new performance .. or you could call a few handymen to see what they would charge to clean the lint from your dryer and stack .. or if you are handy there is a special big brush with a string attached .. you pull that thru the stack to clean it .. use a vacuum cleaner to get inside the dryer vent (you can see in the vent when you take the hose off .. excessive lint buildup not only greatly reduces your dryers efficiency but is a fire hazzard as well ..
Hello. I was the last person to post with problems with the Miele T1403 Electric dryer. Just wanted everyone to know I solved my problem and this could solve yours as well. To reiterate I too was frustrated with clothes that would not dry. I could feel heat but the vent/filter light would keep beeping and evetually turn off my dryer. The result would be damp clothes especially towels!! I had a certified Miele dealer come in and check out the machine. This was after I completely cleaned out the lint trap the inside of the machine, and the duct connecting it to the wall. Well they looked at everything and determined nothing was wrong with dryer and I had done a great job cleaning it. Armed with this info I was referred to a company that specializes in cleaning the entire interior duct system of the dryer(Not just the lint trap, inside of machine, and connector tubing). They came today and disconnected the machine again went into the attic and used a shopvac type of machine to really clean the entire duct system. Not rocket science but viola problem solved!! You could probably do this yourself if you have a shopvac with a long attachment (depending on how many bends your system has). The machine is working great and now I know to clean the system at least once or twice a year. I was told that slow drying clothes, extra moisture, machines that are very hot to the touch,etc. can all be symptoms of a blocked vent. By the way a blockage can be a fire hazard. This solution is a lot cheaper than a service call or worse getting a new dryer. I wouldn't listen to the hype about European dryers like Miele or Bosch not drying clothes all the way-could just be a blockage. These brands are very good at shutting themselves off when they get hot (which is a good thing).
