Miele dryer "Filter/Vent" fault, frequently triggered
My new Miele set that I have been using for about 5 loads/week is working great. I've been using them for about 2-3 months. One issue I have had is that the dryer filter red light comes on sometimes during a load. The lint screen may not even have lint on it when this happens. I clean the lint screen after every load.
The vent is corrugated for about 2' then connects to metal rigid 4" duct, down to the basement and out the side of the house. There is one 90 degree bend, and total rigid duct is about 11'.
The external vent cover is a swinging flapper made of metal that I got online. I often watch out the window to be sure it is opening. Could this be the resistance that is causing this error? I will post a link to their site below.
I wouldn't think that I need to give the vent a cleaning already after only 2 months of use. The light started coming on from time to time, almost from the get-go.
Is there an issue or is this a common thing to happen? I can clean the venting but already???
