Miele T9820 - Cannot Clear Fault Memory/Codes

1 post in this topic

I got the dreaded "Check Vent" error on my Miele T9820 gas dryer. I have done the following:

- Cleaned, washed, and dried the lint filter

- Vacuumed everything. The vent itself is only couple feet long, so no problem there.

- Unplugged the unit for many hours

The problem did not go away. So I looked up the service manual and tried to delete the fault codes. I was able to enter the correct service mode. However, I am neither able to read the fault code nor delete them. The top four LED on the status (drying, etc.) keep blinking. Keeping Start/Stop pressed does not do anything.

What can I do to clear the faults? This is the third time I have encountered this issue. The previous two times a Miele technician came and cleared the faults with the software. I want to avoid paying for such a simple thing.

I haven't yet looked the the high limit switch, which may have tripped.

I would really appreciate any hints/helps.
