Bosch logixx wtw84560gb not drying laundry

Two years old and now will not dry clothes on any setting. Tried putting a cupful of water into drum and used the warm time setting. Water was not condensed and remained in the drum. Cleaned an amount of lint from concealed water chamber, but not the actual pump. Tried the above again without success.

    In the absence of any solutions (only questions) I will call out the Bosch engineer.

  • David Oliver Jan 03, 2013

    I have resolved the problem without engaging the oh so expensive engineers. I discovered a large amount of wet lint blocking the condenser grill located in the cavity beneath the dryer drum filters. Removal of the lint was extremely difficult as there is no easy access to the condenser. However, once removed the dryer works perfectly.

Does it get warm? Maybe the heater is faulty. Does it exhaust to the outside? Is the vent/filter blocked?

    It is a condensing tumble dryer no venting. Yes it gets warm, but clothes remaing damp.

  • AlphaOmega Dec 31, 2012

    Then is the warm air able to reach the condenser?

  • David Oliver Jan 01, 2013

    How will I know if the warm air is reaching the condenser? There is some water in the condensation container after program cycle. I appreciate your help.

    Well done

  • David Oliver Jan 03, 2013

    Thanks. Just noticed that although my problem was with a tumble dryer I had posted under washers. I hope other members with dryer problems find this solution!

SOURCE: Dryer cycle doesn't dry on Equator EZ3600 CEE

It's lint stuck in the dryer that drastically lowers the efficiency.
From another site I found the solution:
  
1. UNPLUG UNIT
2, remove 4 screws top back edge of top panel and lift off panel.
3. blower will be toward the right rear of unit. To save a hassle later, take a sharp object and scrib an index mark across where the blower meets the plenum, it will help you line it up later.
4. there are four 7mm bolt-head screws holding the blower and blower motor onto the heater plenum. One of the screw is almost impossible to see, but there are 4. I used a "flex-shaft" socket to get them out. This can be a real PITA.
5. carefully lift blower motor out of plenum. You will probably need to shove the whole tub unit to the left to get clearence. IF YOU OPT TO DISCONNECT THE BLOWER WIRES MAKE A DIAGRAM OF WHERE THEY CONNECT!!
6. I usually use a thin knife to scrape each of the vanes on the blower. Then vac everything out and use your hand to check for smutz in the plenum.
7. THE FAN ONLY FITS ONE WAY ON THE PLENUM. be sure to test fit to see if all the holes line up.
8. When motor is back in place, spin the little cooling fan on top of motor to make sure it's not binding. I usually test the unit by plugging it in and starting dryer to make see it runs.
9. Put top of unit back in place.

SOURCE: condenser dryer gets hot but cloths not drying and water drainer

Check The Ducting To Make Sure There Is No Obstructions Inside. Find The Outlet Outside Where The Duct Goes And See If Your Getting A lot Of Air. In Some Cases You May Have To Remove The Back Of The Dryer To Remove The Biggest Lint Ball In The World.
This Huge Lint Ball Builds Up Over Time And Quickly For Users Who Do Not Clean The Lint Trap On Every Cycle.

All Of The Above Will Cause The Dryer To Not Be Able To Get Good Air Flow Thus Causing The Machine To Have To Much Back Pressure.

Doesn't dry


Drying consists of removing moisture through heat and airflow. Check to make sure that your venting tube is not kinked somewhere and therefore not allowing the air to flow freely from the dryer.

To whom it may concern hello I have bosch washing machine was32794 , 1-can I use bleach?may be it damage the machine? 2-how can I distinguish the weight of cloths is more than the capacity of machine?...


Yes, you can use bleach -- about 1/2 cup oer load -- or more if specified in owner's manual.

The machine could handle easily one full laundry basket -- see below.


  • Capacity of typical Laundry Basket = 6 kg (dry weight)


Calculation: [(36 cm x 51 cm x 26 cm) / 28317 cubic cm] x 3.5 kg = 5.9 kg

The valve resistance is 1995 ohms and the ignitor is 185.
*******************************************************************
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When the dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
*****************************************

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
*******************************************

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.
***************************************************************
Hold down on the 'More Time' and 'Less Time' buttons and press the 'Power' button. if it comes up with tE1 or tE2 you have a thermistor error.

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.

Flakes of dirt on washing


Is this perhaps a second hand machine or it has possibily been stored away for some time? When a washer dries out inside ( behind the washer bowl ) and is then put back in service, dirt from years of use caked on insides flakes away ( like a dry leaf crumbles) and re-enters the wash and can end up on washed clothing. The only way to stop this is complete removal of washer bowl , scrub and clean insides to remove caked on dirt - reassembly. problem fixed !
