We have a Bosch AXXIS dryer with a blow off vent cap on each side of the dryer. Each of these vent caps will blow off during a dry cycle. I have checked the normal venting and cleaned it out thoroughly to no avail. Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks.

Check your vent, if your dryer vent hose/pipe is plugged up it will cause the problem you are have. Also a plugged vent can cause a dryer fire so make sure that the vent is totally free of lint so the heat can get out of the dryer and to the outside Please take time to rate me Bud
It could be a venting problem. Check the lint filter and the vent pipe to make sure they are not clogged with lint. I have heard that greased lighting works well for cleaning the fine lint filter. Also check where the pipe vents and make sure it is clear. Sometimes vent caps have the mesh screens left on them. When cap vents are used the small mesh screen should be removed so any lint that blows through can clear the venting system. I hope this helps. Link for cleaner: http://www.greased-lightning.com/
Hello- The first thing to check, if you haven't already, is how well the dryer is venting. Make sure there are the flexible duct from the dryer to the wall is not crushed or crimped in any way. As well, with the dryer running, go outside and locate where the dryer exits the wall and feel how much air is coming out. Is should be blowing strong out of the vent. If not, and if the ducting travels a long distance through the walls you may want to have a duct cleaning service out. If there is a lot of lint build-up in the vent then the dryer will have trouble evacuating the hot air and the unit can overheat causing the thermostat to trip. If all your venting is ok but the thermostat is still tripping then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps, best regards.
check where your dryer vent goes through your outside wall they sometimes clog up with lint and cause the escaping heat to recirculate back to your dryer causing the sensor to read the dryer as too hot clear all lint from the outside vent so you can feel the air coming out very steadily and quickly If this works you are all set otherwise check your heating element
Most likely your wall vent is restricted. Unhook dryer from wall vent and pull away from wall. If you don't get code your wall vent needs to be cleaned.
If unit still gives code sensor is either bad or theres a restrictions inside machine, likely in the blower wheel hosing. Air flow when running should be strong coming out of vent. many times strength of a blow dryer.
