Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Home Care C Miele dryer and the light for "luftweige reinigen" (clean airways) comes up ad the dryer stops. I have cleaned the door filter and I have also put out the filter box from bottom left of the machine and washed it, as the instructions say. But still the dryer stops and the light turns on. Can someone help?

Check that the exhaust air outlet hose (if fitted) is not obstructed or crushed. If not fitted, check that the exhaust air outlet is not blocked nor too close to anything which may impede the flow of exhaust air. Also check that the air inlets are not blocked.

Basically your machine "thinks" that it has an airflow obstruction, and usually that's caused by the filters. If that's not the case then you'll have to call in a repair technician to correctly diagnose the fault. The cause is then likely to be a simple failure of a switch or sensor and a relatively cheap and fast repair, especially if your machine is under warranty.

If the dryer has dryness sensor strips they may have a coating on them repelling moisture from wet clothes. The brains might think them clothes is dry. Clean the sensors with windex and party on.

Cant get the clean filter lights to stop flashing


Think of this as a "low airflow" indicator. I know it says clean filter, but this error code is triggered when the temperature gets too high in the air duct sensor at the front of the machine as compared to the sensor at the rear of the machine. the most likely cause is a dirty filter. if you use dryer sheets, the fine mesh can get clogged with paraffin wax. if you hold your filter up to the light, and it looks cloudy and clogged, clean it in hot water to dissolve the paraffin.
if the light still comes on, check to make sure your ducting is not clogged and that the flapper door on the outside of your house where the duct exits is clear and that it opens when the dryer is running. you may need to unplug the dryer if the clean filter light is on and wont go off. plug it back in and try to run it.

on your heat setting you should see less dry, normal dry and more dry. put the setting on more dry and that should take care of the problem. and for the airways. first check your lent trap and if that doesn't do it, check your exhaust hose from dryer to the outside and if that is clear you may have to remove rear cover and clean out. i hope this help.

Dryer not drying clothes


An easy way to check dryer function is to check the airflow on the outside of your home at the exhaust the vent. While the dryer is running, and hot, put your hand near the outlet. The air coming out should be hot and forceful. If not, there is most likely an obstruction, and the whole airway should be cleaned. Keeping the airway clean and clear can dry clothes faster and save you money.

Another possibility is the blower,(fan) which can become encrusted with lint, preventing it from moving air. This is much less likely, but still a possibility.
