There is a thermal overload switch behind the back cover. It has overloaded because the big lumps of lint in a) lint basket, b) small vents either side of the vent basket (use a chopstick), c) in the big pull out condenser unit at the front bottom left, and d) reach right to the slot for the condenser unit and scrape all the lint out of the back.

Now you can do the reset - unplug your dryer first. You will need a Torx T15 screwdriver to undo the all screws around the fan & drum cover, then use a thin blade to pop off the back cover. If you don't have a Torx screwdriver, you will have to buy or borrow one - there are just too many screws to use anything else.

I was thinking of drilling a 6mm hole in about the right spot so I can poke a chopstick through to press the reset button. I have a Bosch Maxx Sensitive WTE84100AU dryer whi - 6607f76a-b20b-43ef-8059-a4858d51d2dd.jpg

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.


Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance. Clicking on the underlined links will take you directly to that page.

If your dryer doesn't heat properly, check this: Venting restriction: Disconnect the dryer temporarily from the vent. If the flame stays on for a longer period, you may have an air flow obstruction to the outside. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Also, in your case, the coils may work fine initially, but heat build up can cause the coil(s) to malfunction and when they cool down will work again.

SOURCE: bosch maxx wtl 6300 dryer when

Hi Guys...
At least I can shed some light on how to open the bottom part.
When you are looking into the dryer with the door open, take a look at the bottom hinge of the door. There is what looks like to be button popped out slightly.. 
Place your thumb on it and press. This should open the bottom part of the dryer.  Then clear out the gap between where the lint filter connects to the other units below it (when the door is closed...)
Hope this makes sense... there seems to be a sensor there..  I just cleaned mine so praying that the beeps stop.. Its been driving us mad for the last 8 months!

SOURCE: Bosch dryer warning sounder for container full will not stop

Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

My bosch maxx 7 sensitive dryer is not working - no lights are lit up, door is closed, filter is clean, container is empty, just beeps twice when i pusch start


Well I would recheck the water reservoir is fully inserted ....the door has no debris inside the lock....the bottom filter is cleaned not just the door filter.if this still not fixes then try a reset by switching off at socket then whilst holding start button without releasing for at least five seconds turn on power and listen for a click.sometimes a sensor is stuck and not relaying proper status.

Bosch dryer beeps


Two Beeps on my Bosch WTE84100au Condensing Dryer means a thermal overload but also means one of the thermal sensors is faulty .... as if it is always on.
Open the door, pull out the lint catcher and clean around the silver probe (it's like a shiny 1/8" nail sticking into the cavity below the lint catcher). If it still doesn't work (and still 2 beeps), just flick it lightly a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, flick again from the other direction.

Dryer won't turn off


Timer motor is shot. Remove a wire from it and check continuity. If the timer does advance in timed dry i suggest you yank out the dryness board and clean the contacts. The dryness board is a small board with a capacitor mounted on it. The capacitor is connected to the drying sensor bars inside. As the wet clothes rub the sensor bars the capacitor gets discharged. When the capacitor gets fully charged (because the clothes are dry) then the timer motor gets power. If the contacts on the board are corroded the motor won't advance. If it advanced and shut down after only a few minutes that is dirty sensor bars (no moisture being sensed). MORE

My dryer Bosch maxx 7 doesn't work


That is a bad motor. It is overheating and the overload is shutting it down. Check to see if there is lint buildup on the motor. If not, you will need a new motor.

Bosch WTL5200 silver edition not getting hot enough to dry clothes


Check ur venting inside and outside the machine. the lint basket? is the air blowing out the back without any restrictions? then check ur thermostats with a multi meter for continuity, may also want to check ur moister sensor, if its mis reading the dryness it will shut off heat early

Bosch maxx 7 sensitive dryer wich stops everytime and shows that there is a problem with the reservoir




Technician just solved that annoying problem. My dryer is few months old and without pump, so condensed water is dripping to tank by gravity. During drying cloth is collected on filter and condenser, but some amount of cloth goes into pipes and canals on the bottom of dryer and clogged non-return valve where tank is inserted. Side panel ha has to be removed, canals and valve cleaned. To prevent problem technician suggested condenser and filter cleaning after every use. Valve can be removed from bottom without removing side panel.
