Bosch Nexxt 100 Electric Dryer Went through a flood....Nothing n
Is there a main fuse or something that may have blown? Water reached a depth of probably 5 feet so the dryer was at least on its side. An expensive dryer that insurance will not cover. Thanks for any help that may be out there

Check all around for a dealer with one that got crushed, but has good working parts. They call them scratch and dent. Have your dealer search other dealers. You may have to buy something from him to butter him up, cause this is a real favor. Water is really rude to appliances. You'll need the motor, timer,any electronic controls, all that stuff.

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, Air Flow is needed to dry. Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.
Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

HELLO THERE Here is the most common things that will make a dryer not work and will need to be checked Door switchIf
the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer
won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is
inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need
to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Thermal fuseOn many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse
that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an
inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your
dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to
inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the
dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) WiringOften
the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the
connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to
replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which
the wire is attached.
This may be an indication of an internal duct restriction due to lint. If it is clean inside there may be a problem with the main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.
