Miele 1415 dryer on fritz, 3 months left on extended warranty!
Alas, our beloved T1415 dryer, bought in 2007, spins as it always did, but is no longer getting hot. I suppose it is some kind of heating element that needs to be replaced, but this (probably) isn't going to be too painful, because we bought a 5 year extended warranty. Expires in October. Whew!
We already used it once to replace the washer's motherboard two years ago - that was almost certainly due to an electrical storm. So, it seems like the warranty was a good deal. Since so many people helped me here, wayyyyy back in 2007, I want to give back a word of advice. If you are springing nearly $4k for a Miele washer and dryer, they are great, but not infallible. Get the extended warranty.
