Removing the front panel on a Bosch WTV76100US dryer

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.

SOURCE: Amana NEW7200TW (1 year old) runs, but stopped heating.

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.

Good luck and thank's for visiting "fixya" today for your repair tips.

Where is the reset switch on the Bosch 3510 dryer

The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame:

The motor tripped?.
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

My Bosch Classixx Dryer is not condensing into the collection try! can you offer me any assistance please? Regards, Adrian. (wet boxers!!)Sorry can't find the correct product listing in the "What product...


If its like a bosch tumble dryer i had before there should be a pipe down the back, pull it off at the top and give it a good blow, dont know that this would work, didnt have this problem. But seems logical to think it might be a blockage and you can try this without pulling it apart or calling an engineer. By the way if you have a waste water pipe nearby you can route the pipe into this instead of the collector tray and you will never need to empty it again!!

Sears Kenmore gas front loading dryer doesn't get very hot (need to run 2x to get clothes dry), room is very humid and hot while running dryer

check the following areas to address this issue further.

Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

Bosch Dishwasher. Mushroom float

I have a guide here that covers problems with the drainage functions and also the float switch. It is on the left side as viewed from the front, and it's behind a panel held on by 2 - T-25 screws. Be careful that you do not break the plastic holding the switches in when you take it apart. you will need to clean the float thoroughly.

Bosch Self Venting

If you're asking about the Condensation - No Venting Required feature:

I've had one for about 4 years with no complaints. I have used plenty of traditional dryers -- even models with moisture sensors. In all of them, it was common to find clothing that was "hot to the touch" when finished.

Every Bosch load finishes with a hint of moisture. I believe this is the Bosch "anti-wrinkle" standard -- but have never used one of their vented dryers. Even a 10 min fluff seems to add a hint of moisture to the load. Either way, you can't throw everything in the laundry basket and leave it for a week.

Europe is short on McMansions -- favoring tiny old homes without proper laundry rooms. Ventless is the norm -- rather than the exception over there. The Bosch works as advertised --producing a trace amount of ambient moisture and/or heat.
Mildew can be an issue -- depending on the dryer's location -- and the areas relative temperature / humidity.

Functions best in a fully climate controlled indoor location.

Facia panel keeps breaking/bleach ruins clother/water level too low and doesn't clean well

Do not use bleach, if you do you will get a bleaching effect,the new machines use less water, do not volume overload machine. mix the load to prevent uneven out of balance spin and check feet are level. Ragrds Advisor
