Bosch WVT1260 washer dryer not drying

Hello, I hope you can help.

Essentially the problem seems to be that no hot air is being circulated around the drum as the clothes are cold and damp even after a drying cycle. I have tried both delicate and normal drying, but no joy. I have emptied the filter on the front of the machine (which did have a plastic shirt clip in it - broken!). There is water going in to the machine, and the water is being pumped out so the condensing side of things looks to be in order. I believe there is a thermal cut out, where is this situated?? And is it something that anyone could reset??

Many thanks,

    Ok, sounds like a different problem to mine.

    I did manage to fix mine, but I have a feeling it was more fluke than judgment.

    If you remove the lid, by taking the 2 screws from the back (you will require a torx driver, not a phillips/pozi, or flat head) you will see a rectangular section tube lagged in some form of heat resistive material, this is where the hot air gets pumped from the rear pump, past the heating element and then blown into the drum. On top of the rectangular tube, there are three thermostats one has a little dongle thing on top, red in colour, if you fiddle around with this in a kind of random manner, it will eventually reset itself, or at least mine did. Anyway mine is now working as good as new. It may be worth having a go with this yourself, although it does sound like a different problem altogether.

    P.S. Make sure you switch off at the plug if you do take the lid off!!

    Best of luck.

On the top of the heater box there is a thermal fuse that blows if the dryer overheats, on this model it could occur if the air circulation fan is faulty, or the condenser valve is faulty, alternatively the sump hose filter may be blocked, only a closer inspection of these items will determin which the problem is.

Check the 240v coming in.
You may have tripped a breaker and one side of the 240v is working allowing some control but no heat.
Check also for a burned element and loose connection.

SOURCE: Zanussi WJD1667W not drying at all

Hi,

I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Let me know if this rectifies your problem

SOURCE: condenser dryer gets hot but cloths not drying and water drainer

Check The Ducting To Make Sure There Is No Obstructions Inside. Find The Outlet Outside Where The Duct Goes And See If Your Getting A lot Of Air. In Some Cases You May Have To Remove The Back Of The Dryer To Remove The Biggest Lint Ball In The World.
This Huge Lint Ball Builds Up Over Time And Quickly For Users Who Do Not Clean The Lint Trap On Every Cycle.

All Of The Above Will Cause The Dryer To Not Be Able To Get Good Air Flow Thus Causing The Machine To Have To Much Back Pressure.

there are 3 reasons for a dryer not doing the job yet running through the motions. 1st, the heat is not being produced and only cool room temp air is circulating. this can be a burned-out electric element or an over-heat sensor, or in0line safety fuse. ( if gas, can be ignitor or gas valve coils).. It could be that the washer is not ringing (spinning) dry the clothes verywell and there is too much moisture stiil in clothes which would double the dry time from 50-60 minutes to 2 hours. 3rd, could be clogged vent line and the hot moist air cannot leave the dryer so the clothes get hot by the moisture stays.

if you have a very large load of clothes in the machine on the dry cycle, what tends to happen is that the clothes are not flapping around in the drum loosely but they are going around the drum in a big mass, with the result that they just get very very hot and steam will escape out the soapbox draw. When this happens, heater unit that becomes overheated ant the thermostats will eventualy cut out resulting in cold air being circulated instead of hot. You will need to have them replaced again. when replaced, put on a drycycle with only a few garments in the machine and you will see a big difference in it perfomance. washer/dryers are not very effective on the drying cycles with a full washload.

Bosch Exxcel WVT1260 On drying the heater seems


Check your venting. If the water vapor can't get all the way outside, your dry times will be longer than usual and the steam will come out the front when you open the door. You may need to clean your ducting, which is a good idea anyway to reduce fire risk.

You are speaking the truth there , the really sad part is all brand front load washers will have mold/mildew build up due to the rubber boot seals they all use , the only way of fixing this is soaking and scrubbing with bleach which is not a fun job to do.
until they can figure out how to get all the water out after use we will have to deal with mildew.
top load washers use gravity to drain most water out so they dont have this problem.

Disconnect the vent at the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented to make sure you don't have a clog in the vent line too the outside causing an air flow restriction, if still not drying check and make sure the blower wheel that circulates the heat inside the dryer isn't broken.

My WVF 2402 washer/dryer washes clothes ok but doesn't dry them.


Sorry I'm way late with this but I've only just noticed it. Unplug the machine from the mains! Remove the lid (with a torx screwdriver) and you'll notice a small circular device with 2 leads attached on the top of the machine, in the centre there's a small button, press it and it should click......you've fixed it This is a thermal cutout safety device designed to switch the drying heater off if it becomes too hot. The probable cause for this is that you've over filled the machine and the air didn't circulate freely. as a rule of thumb, dry 1/2 as many clothes as you wash.

Urotech EWC177 Combo


Same problem here and mines brand new. Seems the dryer consists of only a heating element. There's no circulation of dry air. You may as well hang your clothes inside a steam room.

Bosch exxcel wvt1260


I have a Haire combo unit. (washer/dryer) The dryer is a condenser type. I had a this problem with the dryer part of my unit. It was still under warranty at the time so naturally I called. When the tech came out he discovered that the heating element had melted the fan all over the blower elements. this problem could have been fixed, however, Haire came out with a newer model and couldn't get the parts anymore because they weren't making them anymore. Needless to say that totally sucked. But, at least the washer still works great. Upon doing a little research, I discovered that most condenser dryers do get too hot to support one or more of thier internal elements. I would not get another dryer like this without asking about this problem and if there has been any rectification of this issue and how so.

Here is the link for a manual for your washer/dryer if you need it; https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM sounds like the heating element has failed, or just possibly the thermostat for the hot air. follow this link for a list of spares if you want to try it yourself, or for bosch repair centre details if not. http://www.bshappliancecare.com/Bosch/boschspares.html ask if you want to do it yourself for any guidance you need. Hope this helps :)
