If no-one can be specific this might help :- I don't recognize this model no. but usually on Miele dryers the heater is located behind the drum with a t/stat on it. To get to it (not easy) If vented dryer, remove lid, remove logo plate top left of facia to reveal screws remove these and 4 screws around doorway, front of machine will hinge open (spring clip bottom left of panel) remove carbon brush holder top of drum, release the belt from the pulley, remove plastic front drum support panel, remove screws on rear panel of machine holding the heater and turn it to release it into the machine, move the drum forward enough to unplug heater, remove the drum. to remove the heater from the back of the drum locate 2 allen screws through the holes in the rear wall of the drum from inside and remove these the heater will now come away from the drum. hope this helps Cheers
