Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer not heating

I purchased this apartment last year and the dryer had been working fine. It no longer warms up but will continue with the cycle spinning.

    My Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Condensation Dryer will not heat up either, even tho they are set on "Extra Dry".  Sometimes it makes a straining, squeaky noise as the drum spins around, and sometimes the light bounces over to "damp dry" for no reason at all.  Is this something I can fix by myself, or do I need a new part?  The dryer is only 4 years old.

Auto cycle does not work timed cycle works fine


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

My dryer is slowly - over the course of about 2 years - taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. I usually have to run the clothes through 2 or 3 drying cycles to get them dry. What do you think is...


Usually this is caused by the heating element (s) going out.

Tear the dryer down to the elements and test for continuity through them. If one fails the continuity test, replace it.

Why would my dryer not be heating?


Most likely the heating element. But look for blockages that could cause safety's to trip before purchasing expensive heating elements is what I always say. To prevent fires dryers have a series of limits wired into the harness to shut down the element in case the dryer over heats. Maytag blowers are made of plastic and often are a cause of overheating. The clothes take much longer to dry if a blower wheel is to blame, so check that too. themobilian_94.jpgthemobilian_95.jpgthemobilian_96.jpgthemobilian_97.jpgGive me your model number and I will be more specific. Not all maytags are the same.

Whirlpool dryer wed5200tq0: I have to run cycle


Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


****(((Please disregard step three if this is a GAS dryer)))

Dryer blowing cold


Check the following to address this issue.


Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Please rate and have a great day:)

LGE59777S Not drying


There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.
