Dryer will not start.. Here clicking sound when i push start button but nothing happens
Dryer just stopped working... Dryer was set on high and lint screen was full. Dryer will not start. Checked the heater coil which I changed less than a year ago it is fin all connections good. I here clicking noise when i push start button but nothing else..
Re: dryer will not start.. Here clicking sound when i...
Did you clean the lint screen and replace? Also - all lint should be cleaned from back of dryer and the duct...many dryer manufacturer have safety sensors that will not light dryer due to there being too much lint, not enough air flow...(safety feature) ...

this sure has all the suspicions that it's the thermal safety switch , (1) it worked on last load
(2) nothing happens when start is pushed
( 3) tub light works ok
both gas and electric models have one , and they both do go bad , the switch is mounted usually at top of air outlet tunnel on back of dryer , some do have reset buttons , but rarely do they trip for false reasons , something musta happened to cause a high heat build up in dryer ,Lint build-up is most common reason I can think of
Most Bosh dryer have a high limit sensor inside. Very easy to fix. disconnect power, remove back cover. there is lots of screws. usually torx head. you will see at the bottom of the dryer from the back side that there is 2 wires going to a round black "snap disk". there will be a bottom in the middle push the button in. if this dose not fix your problem you should get a in to fix it.
Dryer suddenly stop working when pushing start button (knob will make a humming or ticking kind of noise but won't turn on. I cleaned and check the outside exhaust and lint screen passage. Nothing is helping. help
Howdy: The motor could be popping it's breaker once the start button is pushed. When unpluged the motor resets and the cycle starts over. But also the dryer thinks the element is too hot and resets the safety switch. The temp thermistor (overtemp sensor) could be clogged with lint or open circuit. Not easy to diagnost. Do you smell burnt wires or lint? Check to be sure the door is completely closed. It may think the door is open and not start. Doug
Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch.
A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is
not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever
breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you
need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door
then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking
the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece
with 2 wires attached.

The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.
It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
