SOURCE: How do I turn off

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.

SOURCE: have a Bosch logixx condenser dryer. key sign on screen

You have activated the child lock, basically you have held the start button for over 3 secs. turn the dryer to the cycle you want and keep your finger on ther start button to deactivate. If this doesn't work you may have a module problem. Double check your manual for child lock info. if no module go to link and enter you Enr number.

SOURCE: water tank full (!) in bosch tumble dryer WTE86301gr

As a matter of fact I have solved the problem. The dryer is now fully functioning again. :-)
I'll try to explain how to fix the problem:
The water that condenses in the condensor (doh!) drips down into a container situated below the condensor. The moist air that passes through the condensor is the same air that circulates via the clothes, thus it also contains some lint that the filter doesn't catch. Over time there will be some build-up of lint and mucus (?), clogging the tank AND a sensor that sends a signal to the electronics to start the pump that evacuates the condensed water to the removable tank in the upper part of the machine. This messes up the function of the water evacuation system.
Alright, pull out the condensor and find a hatch in the 'floor' in the farther part of the compartment. Below the hatch you'll find the container that collects the condensed water. Start by cleaning it as thoroughly as you can. There are a few 'nooks and crannies', take your time, also flush with some fresh water and maybe some gentle cleanser to get rid of the mucus. The pump and the sensor for the pump are located in the left part (viewing from front of the machine) of the container. Try to flush there as well.

If this procedure doesn't solve the problem you'll have to disassemble the machine to also be able to remove the pump and sensor housing. I had to do this on mine. Quite a few screws to remove and keep track of, but pretty straight forward if aren't too uncomfortable with 'fixing things'.

I have some pictures of the 'project' somewhere, let me know if you would like to see them or if I may help you some other way.
