My dryer is no longer drying clothes. It is switching on and turns the clothes as normal but it does not heat up and there are no fibres on the filter after a period of running. I'd like to know if this is a simple problem that can be easily fixed or do I need to look at replacing it.
Re: Bosch Logixx vented dryer not working correctly
I had the same problem.
I took of the cover on the back and found the heating element had blown. I just replaced it for a fraction of the cost of a new drier, just unscrewed it and conected the two wires easily.

If your dryer is taking a much longer time to dry clothes here is a simple tip. Remove the vent tubing and more than likely it will be full of dense lint. Dryers made these days have a safety device that will shut off the heat if the temperature gets too hot inside the dryer. In most cases when the vent tube is blocked the dryer will not even heat up for you making you think your dryer has broke down. Before you go as ask questions about the operations why the heat does not work, inspect and clean if necessary. In most cases the dryer will work normally again for you. Oh yes another hint. The vent tube should be four feet or less in length with out no bends or elbow fittings with the exception of the connection directly to the dryer. Longer vent tubes will give you grief every year for they will need to be cleaned that often
frist check the vent if this is to difficult for u pull vent hose from dryer run dryer with load 45min normal dry time . longer for jeans 60- 70 mins. if this works. u have vent problem. if not remove back of dryer replace cyle tstat this is one closer to vent duct problely 4 wires
Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes
are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing
system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the termostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But... if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit. .
Remove the rear connecting vent and run a 45 minute timed dry load. If it works correctly repair the connecting vent and or blockage in the wall.
If this does not correct the problem make sure the glow bar is cycling at the gas valve and report back for further repair.
No, you do not want the dryer vent crushed at all. Go to Home Depot and find a 4 inch adjustable 90 or something along that line. The problem will be that your clothes will dry for alittle while and then you will stat noticing longer and longer dry times
We had a similar problem with our Bosch dryer... every now and then when we were using the dryer an alarm would go off and it would stop drying. We checked through the manual and it had no information. Then one day I noticed that there was a flap on the end of the exhaust vent outside the house. As an experiment I propped the flap open so that it never fully closes. Now we never have the problem with the dryer. I suspect what was happening was that as the dryer was reaching the end of the drying cycle it was pumping out less and less exhaust to the point where it was too weak to open the vent flap, and the build up of exhaust in the ductwork triggered the alarm. I don't know if that's what's causing the alarm with your dryer but its worth checking.
With the dryer not connect to the external venting turn the dryer on and see if there is air coming out ot the vent from the dryer. Is this flow of air strong or weak?
If weak then there could be a problem inside the dryer some where. Perhaps the fan is not operating properly. Just my thoughts.
You say you have check the beginning and end of the duck vent pipe. How about seeing if it venting duct is clear from one end to the other.
