BOSCH Electric dryer with blinking start

This dryer is about 8 years old. The Start Light has started blinking and will not start. I removed the drum, and cleaned out the filter and air chamber. I checked the thermal cutoff on the heater. That is fine. My question is am I supposed to have a reading of some kind on the thermistor near the heater? I also did not get a reading on the door switch, so I jumped it out at the control, and still have blinker, no start. I'm lost as to what to check now, unless the control is bad. Any one have any ideas on something I missed to determine where this problem lies..? Thanks Bob H

    I suspect that I may not have reset the belt switch, which will disable the motor. I won't know for sure until Jan 2nd when I return to the Residence

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: Bosch WTL5400 Condensation Dryer

We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch Maxx condenser tumble dryer that wont work.

Have you taken the condenser itself out from the bottom of the machine? Remove the condenser from the bottom door and rotate the clamp tags which secure it in. Slide condenser out (aluminium mutli-finned box assembly) and carefully take it outside. Use a garden hose with lots of water pressure to spray each vent passage carefully to clear lint and dust away. Passages must be cleared in both directions, long ways and cross ways. Cross ways is the problem area and once you finish clearing the air ways you should see daylight through the condenser easily. Reassemble and always clear lint filter in the door /drum area.
Good luck.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.


I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa. If you turn the drum by hand do you feel any airflow out the back ? (you need to undo the vent hose too) This will tell you if the belt is broke. Let me know and we can go forward from there. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Sounds like the drum bearing or shaft is worn.
Remove rear panel of dryer, you should see the drum shaft, check for wear here.

I press the start button, the light goes on but nothing happens


I had the same problem. It is the door latch. It cost about $150 to fix. I can't believe the tech didn't know it. It is very common for Bosch Dryers after about 3-4 years old.

Bosch WTM C3300 Dryer


I don't own this model of the Bosch dryer, but my guess is that your hot air flow path is partially blocked with lint or something else. Our heating/air flow element was blocked with a errant latex club hit the elements. I cleaned the flow path and removed the heater obstruction with good results for nearly a year to date.

Dryer won't start...


if timer is timing down then it has power so fuse is ok. there is no internal fuse. two things to check if you can hear a low humming noise when drum should be turning, then the motor capacitor is faulty - very common fault and part not dear. no need to get bosch part - you should be able to source locally.to test for this fault, take top off and push the drum. if it starts turning then this confirms the fault check also door catch - this operates an internal switch nand if catch is broken then appliance will not start
