Miele Dryer Major Issues

Miele Dryer Excessive Noise

If your dryer makes noise when tumbling that sounds like loud thumping it’s likely overloaded. Drying more than one wash load or multiple oversize items can restrict airflow, elongating drying times and creating clumps that thump while tumbling.

Avoid overloading by only drying one wash load or bulky item at a time. Balancing a large item, like a comforter or blanket, with a few smaller items can also better balance the load.

Grinding Or Squeaky Dryer

Is your Miele dryer making loud noise that sounds like squeaking and grinding? Overloading can also result in these sounds as the drum struggles to rotate. Follow our overloading tips to also reduce grinding and squeaking sounds.

If the drum isn’t overloaded, check your clothes to see if they’re wetter than usual. Excessively wet items can create extra weight in the dryer drum, resulting in squeaking and grinding. Remove any especially wet items and place them back in the washer for a second rinse cycle. This can remove excess moisture and reduce weight in the dryer drum.

Defective Miele Dryer Parts

Is your Miele dryer making noise even after trying these troubleshooting tips? A defective part may be responsible.

These parts can result in loud dryer noise when they fail, requiring professional repair or replacement:

  • Drive belt: If the drive belt frays or tears it won’t properly rotate the dryer drum or support its weight, resulting in a thumping sound. If the belt tears completely, you may find the dryer not starting at all. A damaged drive belt must be replaced.
  • Drum roller: A worn drum roller won’t adequately support the weight of the dryer drum as it rotates, creating a rumbling sound. Even if only one drum roller is worn out, it’s recommended that all are replaced at the same time.
  • Drum bearing: The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If it wears out, the drum will be difficult to turn by hand and may make loud squealing or grinding sounds. A worn drum bearing can’t be repaired and must be replaced.
