My Bosch Wahser/dryer leaks severely during its tumble dry cycle (OK during wash/spin), but only occasionally. Having taken the back/top off it, the leak appears to be coming from a small plastic box at the top (pressure relief????). I assume something is partially blocked, but Idon't know what. Any suggestions????

Re: Leak during tumble cycle
More than likely that the seal for your condensing chamber has become faulty easy fix undo any screws that hold the condesing chamber on get some bath/shower sealant that is waterproof put this around the chamber and put it back on you will have to leave it for a couple of hours but this should fix the leaking problem its not totaly common but this does happen m8

your heating element or the thermostats that control the heating element could be bad. research no heat for your make of dryer, it should show how to ohm the thermostats and element for fault. They should all read 000 when ohmed. 000 being a complete circuit. I have been having thermal fuse problems with my whirlpool dryer, so I'm learning as I go.
I managed to solve the problem the following way:
I noticed that if you unplug the Sensor-NTC(part nimber 154431 https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=WET2820GB%2f13 ) that controls temperature of air in the air channel, the drying cycle runs as you describe above. So this circute was checked up to the power module. Contacts of the Sensors plug were tightened; I think this solved the problem; resistance of the sensor checked. It must be 4.8K at 25 degree C. and decrease when temperature increases. I dipped the sensor in a glass with hot water.
are you sure it only happens in the spin cycle? and is the leak comming from the bottom front of the washer? most front laoders will leak due to a tear in the belows. that is the rubber boot that seals the washer tub to the front panel. if there was a hole or a tear in the bellows it should have a leak inthe wash cycle also. but there are also other possibilitys too.but its strange to only leak in a spin cycle due to the washer is extracting the water and not adding it. so check and see if it leaks in the wash cycle to and get back to me and we can go from there. looking through my training manual i dont see what could cause a leak in just the spin cycle
two things to check
take rear half of cabinet off and check the dryer duct (lhs from front) is not blocked. this is very common
check water is being taken in during dry - the water is used to condense steam from the drying clothes. easiest way to check this is to see that some water is being drained during the drying cycle.
i assume that drain is operating ok
