Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch.

To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention the most likely based on your description, "put a load of laundry in the dryer that was still holding water. Dryer stopped running and there was water sitting in the dryer. Now the dryer won't run"...and what to do about it.

**Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here please...safety first**

There is an auto shut off or emergency kill switch next to the motor which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped for whatever reason... likely from the excessive weight of the load you put in.

It will look like this image below and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back )...

i.e.

put a load of laudry in the dryer that was still h - e7dd751.jpg

If you`ve already taken the back of the dryer off to gain access you should have no problem. If you never have, it`ll take some time.

Either Scenario I alluded to ( the other would be resetting the hi-limit cut out, you can see through the back vent opening when the vent is removed and then by pushing the red button in...shown below ) will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.

i.e.

Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Macmarkus, your fix (reset kill switch) worked to get my Bosch 500 turning again. Now it won't get hot. Any advise?

SOURCE: Hi I'm having a problem with my Dryer,

Hello click this link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/50033015-00004.png the switch that you are saying you replaced and is causeing your issue is noted on the diagram as part 412 the switch looks like the wires from 413 and 414 are connected to it. assure first that neither of those harnesses are grounding out to the base due to a break in one of the harnesses. Although I do see two harnesses on the diagram when i look up the part 413 is not given. Next thing is that harness that comes off 412 looks as is in the diagram that the other end is connected to either a thermistor in my assumption if it were connected to the hi- limit thermister and the thermister were at fault when the dryer started to heat up and was unable to shut off then it would trip that switch at 412 this is a safety that is built in to the unit so that the dryer does not overheat. Use a multimeter and perform continuity test on the hi and low thermostat at 404 and 405 are the hi and the low and you can also perform the same continuity test on the heater itself just to assure yourself that it has no breaks which I dont think there would be any issue at all with the heater but while there always bettter to perform the test anyway. 405 is termed as a protector so I would start performing your test on that one first if it shows no continuity then that is the part that you will need to reorder. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

This was a previous post, but it may work for you.

A friend of ours has a bosch gas dryer and she had the same problem. She called the Bosch repairman and he sprayed the lint filter with Greased Lightning to clean out the tiny holes in it. He charged $100 and left. He said it would take care of the problem. Has not had any problems since. http://www.greased-lightning.com/ It is worth a try.

SOURCE: Bosch dryer warning sounder for container full will not stop

Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

this could be a faulty moisture sensor. try running the dryer in a timed dry mode and see what happens.also be sure to make sure all the duct work is free and clear and that the lint filter is clean

Why is my Affinity dryer not heating as well as it was put new dryer hose in back just taking touble time to dry a small load of clother & I double spin the load also


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is taking double the time to dry a small load of clothes. I also see that you have put a new dryer hose on the back of your appliance to try and correct this issue. I suggest making sure that you have also cleaned out the lint filter as well as where the lint filter sits. You can clean the lint filter by running it under the hottest water you can stand and using a cleaning brush, gently, to remove any build-up. You can clean where the lint filter sits with a small attachment on your vacuum. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have a aeg lavamat turbo washing machine .when start it the water does not got to the drum ane water never stops simply running


You have a syphon - the waste pipe is probably too low and the end sits in water in the drain, meaning the water runs through the machine and out the waste.

My electric dryer heats up but doesnt dry the clothes


If your vent hose is more than about ten feet long, your dryer may not have enough pressure to keep the air moving sufficiently to dry the clothes. Is it possible you are simply over loading your dryer?

Washer stopped working with clothes and water in it


If you try to wash too many items with the water level set to low it is hard on the drive sysem and will kick out the motor.
When the motor resets it should work again but its very bad for the motor so II would try not to do it again.
Good Luck

My Asko T721 Electric Dryer is having drying troubles


Here's the answer:
The dryer has a thermo protection "fuse" that pops-out when the lint filter is not cleaned and air will not flow properly. When the airflow is restricted the dryer gets too hot and the "fuse" pops. Then it will not run unless you stand there and hold the start button in. As soon as you stop pressing the button the dyer stops running.
Clean the filter ESPECIALLY the "internal" filter. This one is behind the lower skirt of the machines face. There are two Torex head screws (T20) to be removed and the skirt comes right off.
Inside you see two red handles that you turn to open the filter door. Open the door and pull out the filter. It is a long metal finned box. Take it to your bathtub and run a ton of water through both ends to remove the lint inside. You'll be surprised at how much.
O K now let's "fix" the "fuse". Here it is likely you will need to pull the machine away from the wall. The fuse is a black plastic button about the size of a penny. It sits in the center of the machine's backside. It faces up a bit and if you have clearance you can reach your arm over the machines top and press it "in" with a finger. It clicks when you do so. This part is a no brainer. The dyer will now start properly.
The hard part to all of this is pulling the machine away from the wall since like me you probably have it sitting on top of an Asko washer. Take your time. You can do it.
