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.

SOURCE: Dryer does not dry clothes

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.

Must the water be on during the dry cycle


Absolutely! Cold water must be available during the Dry Cycle because it sprays a fine mist on the Condenser to keep it cool. This is how it removes moisture from the hot, damp air circulating through the Dryer.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,

How do you dry on this machine? if you dry on the green, does it completely dry?


The automatic preheat and drying cycle kicks in as the final wash spin is under- way. The system employs a condenser dryer in which the hot air used to dry the clothes is channeled into a drum, instead of being released into the great outdoors via a dry vent hose. Cold water is drawn into the drum at the same time. The two mix, and the result is a condensing process.

The chlothes should be dry. there may be a damp feeling to them but otherwise dry. If your machine is not drying then the element could be going bad, or a thermal cutoff. those would be the easyiest fixes.

The BIG drawback is drying. It takes about 90 minutes to dry a load, and the clothes come out very wrinkled. Because the drum is so small, the clothes don't 'toss' in heated air and don't fluff at all. Clothes also come out stiffer than a regular dryer.

My Bosch Classixx washer dryer has stopped drying and the clothes come out steaming hot and steam escapes from the powder drawer during the drying cycle. I have had an engineer out and he says the airflow...


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.

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot


Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.

Hotpoint washer dryer leaking water whilst drying


driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.

Have the hoses been changed around recently? Has the machine been moved for tiling etc? Check that the hoses are connected to the right valve ie hot hose to hot valve/cold hose to cold valve.

Dryer doesn't dry clothes, doesn't start right after Wash


If the machine is brand new, I imagine all you want to do is check you're using the machine correctly before you claim on the warranty. Trouble is, the design of this machine is so weird, and the instructions so poor that it's easy to get it wrong. So far as I can make out from this distance, you need to have all of: Spin Cancel: Out Half Load: In Cold/Cold: In Hot/Cold: Out Cold water supply: Available Drain Hose: Connected .... and as with most condensing dryers, you need to let it run to the end of its cycle - if you take stuff out without running the final 12 minute cooldown period, everything will come out feeling a bit clammy. If those control settings don't help, try a functional faultfinding approach. To dry properly, the machine needs to do four things at once: 1. Tumble the clothes: You can see whether this is happening or not. From your description, it sounds like this is working. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 2. Blow hot air over the clothes: You should be able to hear the fan running, and if you open the door, the air which comes out should be quite warm. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 3. Condense the moisture out of the circulating air: If this isn't happening, the clothes don't get any dryer - they just get increasingly hot. Before making a warranty claim, all you need to do with this problem is ensure that the supplies and settings are such that cold water (and only cold water) is getting to the condenser. 4. Pump out the condensate: If you've just washed successfully, this is probably going to be working fine. If not, then you'll start to see the drum slowly filling with water. If this happens, check the filter (p12 of the manual), then get the warranty claim going. Welcome follow-on questions or news on how you get on posted as a comment to this query. A.
