I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

Dryer does not heat


Hi there,

Well first all you may check out the heating element, it is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are not repairable. You need to open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it. and you need a multimeter to check it out. Secondly you may check out the Thermal Fuse Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you need to replace it. Post further comments for further help or information.......
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

My Bosch dryer is running but there is heat?


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Not heating


Probably the heater element has failed, it would probably be better to think of replacing the dryer at 10 years old, as Bosch spares are very expensive.
Hope this helps you to make a decision as to what to do.

My Bosch dryer spins but does not heat up. It is


Most likely it is the thermal switch that is located near the heating elements. This switch is the device that regulates the temperature. When it goes bad, it remains open usually. Short of a burned heating element wire, this is probably it. The only other thing it could be is the switch on the end of the motor. This switch turns on the heating element only if the motor runs. Check that too. Good luck.

Dryer goes on but does not heat up


The heating element needs replaced. This is extremely inexpensive and practical to do yourself. You will need to order the part for your particular dryer, I would suggest contacting the manufacturer for pricing. I would estimate about $30 for a heating element.

Dryer won't heat


It could be a defective thermostat or heating element(In most of the cases it is the heating element).Open the service panel and check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heating element tags. If you can read 115/220V on its tags, it should be replaced. In case you can't read 115/220v on its tags, you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
