Dryer tripping electricity saftey switch

Hi I have a second hand Miele Dryer model T4450 (i think). It has been working fine, however after being on for a long time last night the clothes were still damp and the cycle stopped on cool down and didnt finish. Inside the dryer had quite a bit of water droplets. I emptied the water container and put the machine on. upon doing so it tripped the saftey switch and kept doing so on each drying cycle except the 15min cool down cycle. It also worked for a little while when the cooler temperature button was on, however after a while this too tripped the switch. I have used the machine aprox 10 times prior to this without incident. Any suggestions as to what is causing it to trip our electricity saftey switch?

You probably have a shorted heating element.

The breaker box in the unit may not have the rated breaker for your appliance. Most likely.

Miele T230C dryer keeps tripping out after only a few seconds?

Mostly likely cause is the heater element part no. 6138580. To ensure this does not happened again 1. Ensure appliance is situated in a cool room with ventilation (If room to hot it will not condense)
2. Ensure metal heat exchanger at bottom of appliance is rinsed regularly both long way and width ways.

Kenmore Dryer Model #68202 just quit working. Set

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Things that will cause a dryer to just up and stop are:

1. Door switch
2. Motor Switch
3. Belt switch

The first thing to check is the door...

a. Verify the door remains closed and that if you gently tug on the door that it does NOT make the door switch click. Things like the switch actuation post get worn and clothes being dried press against the door and can cause the dryer to stop.

The second thing to check is the drum.

a. Reach inside the dryer and push the drum in either direction. If it moves easily with little resistance (Belt not turning the motor as drum is moved) then the belt has broken and the belt saftey switch has been activated causing the dryer to appear dead in all aspects.

The last thing that can cause it to just stop is a failure of the motor or motor switch. (Least suspects at this time)

Also go to the main Circuit breaker panel and physically turn off the dryer 30A Circuit breakers by pushing them against the off position and then back to the on position. This resets the breaker completely

You did not mention the age of this Dryer yet at this time I suspect a broken belt has tripped the belt safety switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??

We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

Our miele condenser dryer with the miele washing machine will often trip the whole house's electricity. Sometimes it will trip on the house circuit board. while other times it trips the external trip...

have the neutral power connection on that circuit and back to the main house panel and then have the neutral connection checked at the power companies side also, it sounds like you have a high resistance neutral connection somewhere in the circuit and its looking for another return path due to the high resistance on the line to another feed circuit line to make connection
