I had the same problem with my dryer.

MAKE SURE THAT POWER IS OFF AND PLUG IS UNPLAGED AT WALL
On the back of the dryer there is a white metal cover in the centre with two philips screws. Once removed you will see metal box which has elements like a toaster built inside it.

You will see two sensors sticking out of top of metal box. The left one is the sensor for safety cut out in event of the dryer sensor on the right stopping working and letting the dryer overheat.

If you disconnect the left sensor 2 crimps and put multimeter on the left sensor two pins and if the meter beeps on continuety the sensor is ok. but if no beep the sensor is bad.

If sensor bad you can tempary bypass the sensor by joining the two cables together and try running dryer on a program and if heats up you know that you need to get new sensor.

WARNING! IF YOU LEAVE THE LEFT SAFETY SENSOR BYPASSED IF THE RIGHT HAND SIDE SENSOR MALFUNCTIONS THE TEMPERATURE WILL RISE AND CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE OR FIRE. THE PURPOSE OF THE RIGHT HAND SENSOR IS WHEN THE DRYER HEATS UP TO HEAT IT CUTS OUT AND WHEN DROPS DOWN IT HEATS UP AGAIN SAME AS AN OVEN.

You can maybe buy sensor from a meile dealer or RS COMPONENTS have the same sensor for £3.35 each.

NOTE: I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILY FOR DAMAGE OR INJURY IN MY ADVICE FOR REPAIR OF DRYER.

How can I reduce the humidity of the air expelled from the dryer?


If the aire being expelled is humid then this suggests that the unit if working fine. if clothes are still damp then maybe give them a second spin before putting in the drier, or dry them for longer. Also try putting less in the drier and drying in two loads.

My Miele dryer Miele Novotronic 494C does not dry clothes


Check breaker, then wiring. This can be a thorough job. Your element is probably burned out. If it is older than10-12 years,this is normally it. One other thing to look at is the relay switch which is located under the top. It will shut down if there is an electrical problem.

My Miele T294C NOVOTRONIC TUMBLE DRYER KEEPS STOPPING AFTER A FEW MINUTES OF DRYING. I CAN SWITCH IT BACK ON IMMEDIATLY ONLY FOR IT TO STOP AGAIN. CAN YOU HELP?


Hi - it seems likely the moisture sensor unit is faulty, reason?

Well Miele dryers after you start up will actually try to work out the amount of moisture in the dryer, it will calcualte the time & temp required to correctly dry the load in the machine. I suspect the sensor is not functioning proper.

I will assume there are no messages or other indications or flashing lights on the right side of the knob - it would be nice to plug my laptop to it and find out for sure..

You have cleaned the heat exchanger unit in the bottom corner of the dryer, the filter in the door and the two on the bottom of the door opening..

Despite all of these I would lean on the faulty sensor as the most likely culprit.

You may have to locate the nearest Miele service agent to help you out...

cheers

Sounds like your heating element is burned out (acually burned threw) I can walk threw it with you if you like.First find a replacement element.Everytime you turn it on the element gets weak from contraction and expansion.

Miele T358C dryer. water not being pumped out of the sump??


TRY THIS:
TRY THIS:
In some cases cleaning the condenser out and drying the unit well will allow the unit to function again. Once a month you need to empty the condenser unit, it is normal for there to be some water in the tubes when you do this, you then have to flush the condenser by pouring water through it in either your sink or tub. Make sure that there is plenty of room around the drier for air circulation; and empty the water container often or reconfigure your pluming arangement to reduce the water left in the container. The circuitry of this unit it sensitive to high humidity and can cause the unit to not function properly. So with condensing dryers you have to work on keeping them clean. Let me know how it goes. Later :?) DRRXR


TIP OF THE DAY--
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.

Miele is a top notch machine. Try checking your vent hose. It may be blocked in some way.
