Question about Dryers
No heat to the dryer, cleaned the lint filter, no heat, removed the back plate, drum moving, fan working, tried to press the red re-set switch but it hadn't popped, did by-pass the switch still no heat, don't seem to be getting power to the heater unit. Any ideas please?

SOURCE: Bosch WTL5400 Condensation Dryer
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.

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.
