Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

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.

The dryer is 8+ years old; recently it has started making a squeaking/rubbing sound when running with a small load of laundry. Generally, a full or heavy load won't make the noise, but when a smaller load gets about half dry, the sound starts. The sound is not constant, but pulses about once a second. I suspect it is something in the drum-rotating mechanism, but beyond that I don't know what to look for -- the belt, the main bearing, the drum itself rubbing on something? Could it be something with the front cover, where the front of the drum is supported? Not sure how to diagnose. Suggestions, and/or disassembly instructions would be a great help. Many thanks Matt

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.

SOURCE: Squeaks from drum area during operation

We have a Bosch Nexxt dryer and it, too, squeaks during operation. We have not been able to find a permanent solution for this problem although we've had the repairman come out 3 times now. We have however found a temporary solution that lasts for about a week. We spray Static Guard (in an aerosol can) in the inside lining of the dryer... kind of in the lip of the front. (You shuld be able to feel it if you put your hand right inside the door.) We've just been spraying the static guard all the way around that area and the squeaking stops! Hope this works for y'all. May not be permanent but at least it stops the annoying sqeaking!

Squeaks from drum area during operation


Hi there!

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.

If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.

If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.

After the dryer heats up for a while, it makes a loud squealing noise. It does not stop until the dryer totally cools down. Several certified Bosch repairmen have tried to fix it with no success.

Bosch Nexxt Dryer gets warm but laundry doesn't get dry. Dryer stops after about 10 min of running and starts ''beeping''


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

I have a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 electric dryer. The dryer doesn't heat up. This is the second time this has happened over a one year period. The first time it happened, the technician reset the thermal cutoff, but said he saw no reason why it should have tripped. Can you tell me how to reset the thermal cutoff or offer another solution?
