Question about Dryers
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).

Wash the filters and check the venting.normally cleaning wont be covered by warranty.
