SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

I have a Siemens dryer and few days ago it stopped heating, but the drum rotates. The problem was because of a safety reset button that went off. On the Siemens (WT dryer series), it is a red button behind the dryer.

Press the red button and it will restart. I might have started a fire, if not for this safety switch.

A similar reset button must have tripped on the Bosch dryer.

FYI: Remember Bosch and Siemens share their technology.

SOURCE: The dryer (Bosch Nexxt 500) makes a loud grinding

The noise could be your drum rollers need lubricant or replacement.
When the drum rollers get flat spots on them they will make a bumping/thumping type of noise.
The grinding noise sounds to me like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication.

I had the same trouble after moving to a new house, I first thought I had a voltage problem. It turns out that the heating coil has a high temp re-setable switch in side the back - lower right side. the sencor has 2 screws, I took it out and cleaned off the lint and now have dryed 5 loads with 0 issues. looks like a flaw in design that would allow lint to get in the heating coils!!!!! I think I'm going to look for a new dryer before I burn down the house!!

Try checking your exhaust vent pipe for excessive bends and kinks, make sure there is good strong airflow coming out the exhaust where it exits the building.

Sounds like a bad thermal fuse or thermostat, check all of them with a multi meter for continuity. as for the heater going out I would check ur venting inside and out the machine. the fuses and heater blow out for a reason? Usually due to overheating issues? I suspect ur lint build up is the problem?

Bosch nexxt 500 elec dryer has no heat to it


There is a switch located on the duct from the heating element. Which you are not able to reset, you have to replace it if it's defective. Do a continuity test on it and if there is no continuity then the switch has to be replaced.

I NEED SERVICE MANUAL FOR BOSCH NEXXT 500 GAS DRYER


Hi.

I am sorry but unfortunately I could not find the manual for Nexxt 500 gas dryer in my database. The full model number may help me to find the file more than the model name.

A manual for Bosch gas dryer is available in this forum. Subscription to the forum is free: http://applianceguru.com/view_topic.php?id=21241&forum_id=19
When you ask for the manual always include the full model number(e.g.WTMC332SUS ). There are different Nexxt 500 models.

No heat....cleaned filter, vacuum etc....read about a 'reset' buttom, took off back panel, but do no see one......Is there a 'red' reset buttom? thanks


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

There is indeed a reset or hi-limit as it is sometimes referred to on the element/heater box at the back and it should have a red button in the center you can physically push with Bosch...at least the "nexxt" series.

To start...


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

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.

For 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

i.e.

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

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Please take a moment to rate the assistance provided here for you and a brief testimony on your experience here at FixYa is appreciated as well.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I just had the same problem, motor runs but no heat. I had a fun time figuring out how take the front panel off, hint the rubber seal comes off easily. It looks like mine tripped the resettable over heat sensor. So far so good.
