Hi guys, I need some help. I found a T88-35C CH to sell, but I wanted to know if it only works on 400V. Does anybody know?

I guess it's either 230 or 400V.

Thank you!

I was thinking that 230V/2,14 kW referred to the T8835C and 400V/2,85kW to the T88-35C CH.

CH, to this day, stands for the Swiss versions of Miele appliances. Switzerland seems to have 400V for most large appliances.

Last doubt!

Logixx, do you know if a 50 Hz draining pump works fine on 60Hz?

Sorry - no idea. I would *guess* that the impeller just spins faster.

Is that unless otherwise specified their washers and dryers will not operate properly when connected to frequency different than specified.

That being said some Miele parts in their laundry appliances are 60hz/50hz. One assumes this is get out of making different versions of a part for the small markets such as USA and elsewhere that use 60hz.

Best way to tell is to open the dryer and look at the part in question. The rating plate should say.

That being said the pump may not care about spinning 10% faster.

Running a 50 Cycle washer or Dryer On 60 Cycle Current

The pump will not care, but the machine may tumble about 15% to fast, this may effect the tumbling in the washer and a dryer diffidently WILL NOT tumble clothes properly turning 15% too fast, clothes will dry slowly and be wrinkled because they are stuck to the drum.
