We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.

SOURCE: pump fail

wow that is a fancy one. most of them simply have a catch basin you have to dump. Probably lint is topped up the pump. Open the pump clean out and get the gookus out of it.

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

SOURCE: pump fail

Have you actually checked the pump, normally they are just clogged with fluff and residue, they dont fail that often. Remove the side panel, the side where the drain container is. You will see the pump assembly at the bottom, remove the screw and top cover, then push the clip in to remove the pump unit, after removing the wiring plugs, the pump can be stripped and cleaned, clean the water chamber also which will be clogged. Hopefully it will work fine.

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.

Clean Lint Filter Light/Possible Heat Problem?


Take the front panel off the bottom and check the big hoses that connect to the drum. From what you are saying, the fan is working but not drawing air through the drum. That is why the light is on because it is not sensing air flow through the connections to the drum.

The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    Describe your DBSR453EBWW / DBSR453EBCC Electric Dryer Problem Dryer makes a loud noise and gets really hot fast even on " less dry" and smells electical afraid to use it, heating element or...


    Hi bbunnymc...

    2 possible problems with your dryer...
    1...Drum roller noisy making the loud noise you hear.
    2...Vent system of dryer plugged up with lint,socks,pens,etc.
    I will give solutions to both below
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Problem 1 solution...ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

    Your problem sounds like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

    Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

    Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
    Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
    Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
    Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
    Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
    This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
    Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
    Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
    Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear they will make a thumping type of noise.
    If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
    If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
    Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
    Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
    Reassemble the dryer.
    Plug back into your electrical receptical.
    This should solve your noise problem.

    2...Problem solution...
    Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
    If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
    Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
    If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
    It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
    The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
    You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
    It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
    Note: You can get to the most of the vent system thru the removal of the back of the dryer
    Please take time to rate me.

    This is usually caused by lint on the heating element, You should have it cleaned out by an appliance person or if you feel comfortable you can unplug the unit, remove the back panel and try cleaning it out your self. you should also try cleaning as much as possible from behind the lint filter inside the drum. Hope this helps.

    On my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Electric Dryer keeps shutting off and gives the E-01 error we have check the exhaust air duct on back of the dryer and we have vacuumed the inside bearing shield what else...


    Motor won't work
    Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped.
    Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows.
    Wire harness failed.
    Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness.
    Display shows "E:01" during drying.
    Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked.
    Air leaking past felt drum seal.
    Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet).
    Clean out filter, air duct and air damper.
    Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly).
    Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area

    Kenmore Model 110.68422700; the dryer cycles all the settings


    when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?you should clean the dryer once a year anyway so try this,unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take out the 2 phillips screws in front of the filter on the top panel.pull out the dryer,remove the vent line from the back of dryer and remove the back panel.on the left side you'll see the duct that the filter slides down into,take out the 4 screws that hold it in and remove it and clean it out,vac off the back of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow out the blower wheel and the heater and blow out the duct to get it clean.if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,go outside first and make sure the duct outside is not blocked with any lint or anything and make sure the flapper opens freely.put it back together,except for the 2 phillips screws on top,with a screw driver pop up the top panel,there are 2 clips on each side that locks the top panel to the frame,just stick the screw driver in between the front panel and the top panel and pop it up,you'll see 2 5/16 screws one on each side around 4 inches down from the top on the inside,remove them and disconnect the door switch harness,use a screw driver to stick in between the harness to pull it apart to make it easier to get it apart,pull up on the front panel one side at a time and remove the front panel,vac out the inside of dryer,blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back to the front so you don't have to pull the drum,if you know how to reinstall the belt take out the drum,the timer moves when the heat shuts down but if the dryer is loaded with lint the heater will not run correctly because of bad air movement and the clothes won't dry so try this first and let me know what happens
