SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer, E:01 and lint light

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.

Need to replace the foam strip that seals the front door on my Bosch 500 Nexxt series electric I do this from the front?

Most likely yes. Get a good adhesive for it though and make sure it is dry before you close the door and before you use it.

How to I get to the drum? The fins in the drom have come unscrewed and fallen off. I need to get to the outside of the drum and screw them back on.

Access to the outside of the drum requires the removal of the front then the top panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the screw holes appear at the top of the drum and screw the baffles back into position.

Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

Dryer won't start

If you look on the motor that turns the drum (at bottom), you will see two wires coming into what looks like s tan box with two spring loaded thumb tacks on either side. the thumb tacks are pushed if the tension arm on the drum belt kicks out. You can reset it by pushing the opposite thumb tack. WATCH OUT BECUASE IT WILL START AS SOON AS YOU RESET IT IF IT IS TURNED ON, use two people if possible.

Wont drain or do final spin out.

Hello travistracey,

The error code E04 for bosch nexxt machines indicates a problem occurred during the drain/pump out. Typically what this really means is an obstruction/debris inside the drain pump, specifically the button trap/lint filter insert.

You haven`t mentioned whether you`ve checked the pump or not, so I`ll assume you didn`t. This is how...

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

Bosch E04 Solution:
  1. Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, I can't say, I'd guess you could get wet. ( unless you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  4. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves).
  5. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.
  6. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the E04 error code.
  7. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
  8. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
The error code should be gone when you restart a cycle however, if the error return`s you`ll need to check further for blockages in the drain hose, or the bellows from the tub to the pump.

Hope this help`s. Thank you for visiting "fixya", please take a moment to rate the solution provided here.

Let me know if you require further assistance. Good luck.

How do I change the electric bulb inside ????

First of all, unplug your dryer from the plug. Then open up the door, and look directly to the back of the drum and you should see a rectangular cover with a phillips head screw. Unscrew, remove the cover, and then unscrew the bulb. Make sure you replace it with the same bulb. Usually, they're 10w appliance bulbs. I hope this works for you, but if not - feel free to contact me again. Good Luck!

We have the same mould problem with our Bosch washer . We should sue them in a class action. The door doesn't close right has to be lifted and then slamed. The Bosch dryer also stops before the clothes are...

I don't have this problem with the same washer. I noticed my wife keeps the front door open for few hours after using the washmachine. This helps drying the inside of the washer and not allow any mold to grow.
It is worthwhile trying. I may even be recommended in the user manual to do so.

Bosch Error Code 13 Washer won't drain

First, unplug your washer. After that find the little round plate below your drum opening on the exterior of the washer. It should have a small hole in it. Use something to gently push trough this hole and twist the cover off, Inside there you will find the drain access. Be careful, if there is water in your drum this will make a mess when you unscrew the drain access. Take the usual precautions and unscrew the drain access slowly until it is off. Remove any obstructions and replace access door and cover. Clean up any mess and plug back in your washer and try again. takes about thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much water is in the drum.

Change hook in the door

the front door panel clicks off with the help of a butter knife! then you are able to unscrew 2 fixings with a 5sided star star-shaped key (or in the absence of this specialist a 2.0mm 6-sided hex allen key will do). the broken hook can then be removed backwards out of the door and the new one put in.

Kenmore Serios 80 Gas Dryer - Replacing Gas Valve Coils

I haven't done coils in a while, You will need to remove the top and front panel to access the coils. The top should have catches that allow you to grasp the top by the back corners and pull forward slightly releasing the catch for left an right sides, other will have to have the top console removed to reveal 3 hex screw to pull the top off. Once done get a 5/16 and remove two hex screws left and right on the inside edges holding the front on, also unplug the harness to the door switch, by now the machine should be unplugged. the coils have a flange over them held on by some phillip screws. the orifice is preset so dont mess with adjustments, they should pop out and pop in
