    I have the same problem. The dryer is only 2 years old. Not sure if this would be under warranty or not, but it's taking a really long time to dry anything.

    My dryer is heating, but not sure if it is getting as hot as it should. Wet towels are still pretty much wet even after four cycles in the dryer (whereas it used to take 1 to completely dry). I've cleaned the lint trap completely and air seems to be moving out the vent normally. However, I cannot tell if the volume is good as the opening is about 10ft up under the roof soffit.

    We've checked the vent, checked the filter, the drum spins, the clothes feel warm, but not hot and do not dry.

    I have the same problem as well. Dryer is less than three years old. Never dried great but worse now. I clean lint traps religiously and have tried extra dry option to no avail. Towels seem to not dry at all.

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).

Washer would spin dry but the clothes is still wet


Sounds like your transmission is starting to go bad. It is not creating enough power to spin fast enough to dry the clothes. A new transmission is going to run about 400 I would start shopping for new machines. Do light loads of laundry til you get a new washer..

I have a L G and it does not spin dry the wash load How can this be fixed


Do you mean it doesn't spin at all...or it doesn't spin fast enough to dry the clothes?

If it will not spin at all you may have a loose belt or broken belt.
If it does not spin fast enough, you may have a loose belt or too latge a load.

Spin is not going fast enough to dry out clothes


spin is not suppose to dry the clothes, simply wring the most water it can from them.

are you sure you are not set on a gentle cycle? might your washer offer a extra spin cycle?

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
