I have a Siemens WT46W566GB/03 condensing heat exchanger

Resolved Question:

Hi,
I have a Siemens WT46W566GB/03 condensing heat exchanger tumble dryer. I have a fluf light the continues to come on at the end of a cycle both low heat and normal.
So far I have completely stripped down the appliance hovered out all fluff and replaced the NTC sensor. I have also washed out the heat exchanger unit.
I understand that the fluf light indicates an airflow problem, so to that end I moved the appliance from under the worktop in our UT room to open floor space but still the problem continues. I'm now out of ideas other than replacing all seals, such as door drum and back fan/ drive panel.
Thoughts solutions would be greatly appreciated as we don't want to get rid of what is an excellent machine.
Thanks
Simon

Hi Simon,

in this case the problem is the main control board to blame for this error.

You could live with the problem as it doesn't really affect the operation other than showing the fluff condition.

Or you can replace the board, which is pretty easy to do and I will help if you choose to do that.

The board requires no soldering, it all plugs in, a lot of plugs so please take a pic or two of the plug placement before removing any wires from that board.

If you need a source for that board I would use this site for price and quality: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/

I would call them to order this board as they will then ship it out the same day to you;-)

Please call ransom spares: 0844(###) ###-####a href="http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/" target="_blank">Home » Parts » Laundry Spares » Tumble Dryers » Siemens
