Dryer lint filter

Did you know that using fabric sheets can clogged your lint filter and cause you to use excess electricity. if you have used sheets for a good peroid of time take your filter out and slowly pour a half cup of water onto it. you will be amazed that the water will remain on top and not pour thru. air flow is very important. clean with a pressure washer. good luck.

dryer not drying


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.

If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

my dryer smells like it is on fire.


This is a sure sign you have airflow problems in your dryer.

1. Check all of the ducting from the lint filter.... all the way THROUGH the outside wall for signs of blockage / ANY lint build up.
2. Check airflow at the dryer exit by removing the duct connection. The airflow should push a relaxed hand away from the dryer vent connection.
a. If it does not do this the problem can be
1) Excessive lint inside the dryer ducting
2) Lint filter clogged with dryer fabric sheet material (wash with vinegar and water then soap and water)
3) Area around lint filter blocked / restricted by lint
4). Broken blower wheel.

Until you resolve this problem: I highly recommend you stop using your dryer as it really can catch fire.

Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer, E:01 and lint light flashing. nothing is stuck in the door.


Hi,
This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.
Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
