Question about Bosch Dryers
I have to break down a Bosch dryer to get it into the engine room of my boat. Got it all apart except for the front facia which seems to be held on by a screw under a vent panel that won't come off.

1. Open dryer door and remove the phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. 2. Remove three screws at very back, allowing top cover to be moved back about an inch and lifted off. 3. remove screw at top left and top right from front top panel. 4. pull plastic front panel along top edge to release front top panel. (watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

To answer the question regarding access to servicing your model of dryer, it is done from the front. You'll want to re-install any screws/fastener's removed from the back before you proceed. Some dryer's can be serviced from the back...not your's.
**Turn off the power by way of shutting off the breaker at the service panel or unplugging from the wall**
Starting with removing the "kick plate" or "toe panel". The top can also be removed from the front, that requires unscrewing the two screws at either side of the control panel and "flipping" it back to reveal the screw's which hold the top in place. (move the unit out from the wall a few inches for clearance of the wall so you don't damage the control panel or the wall)
If you look closely to the seam where the kick and main front panel meet you'll see clip's at either end. With the aid of a flat screwdriver or puddy knife, push in slightly on these clip's (one at a time) as you pull the kick forward gently. The panel should pull forward on both sides and is then held in place by way of hinge bracket's/clip's at the bottom and will pull off easily.
With the top and front "kick plate" removed you can now remove the entire front panel if necessary. To do this...Undo the spring's from the door hinges. Loosen the screw's at either side supporting the panel (don't remove them, just back them out slightly) then move up to the top of the panel. On the inside of the cabinet facing the front panel will be a screw on either side you must remove completely. While you are removing these upper screws, lean into the panel or have someone support it as it will fall forward when the screws are removed as well it put's less stress on the screws allowing them to be removed with less effort.
**Before pulling the panel off completely take a picture or make a drawing of the location of the door switch wires, you will then need to remove the wires and the panel should be free to remove.**
Hope that explain's the procedure enough for you to move forward. Let me know if I can assist you further.
