Check that the inlet valve is not defective and that the water level switch is working.

    My previous solution was for a washer, on a condenser dryer, once you have ensured the orifice is not clogged, the most likely is that the water level switch inside the condenser tank is stuck.

    The water level switch is actuated either by a membrane switch, or more commonly by a floating sensor, let me know the exact model number from service tag, so that I can find schematics for your model.

    Thanks

I have a two year old Bosch Ecologixx 7 Tumble Dryer (WTW84560GB/02) whose condensation compartment full indicator is being activated increasingly early, to the point where I am needing to empty the...


I had exactly the same problem and got it fixed by the Bosch repair service today.
The culprit is that in certain areas there may be algae in the air that thrive to grow in the main water reservoir and clog up the water pump that fills the condensation compartment.
(note: There are two water tanks in the Ecologixx 7 - one user serviceable condenser tank up top and the non-user serviceable main water reservoir sealed inside the machine)
This is main water reservoir is located sealed under the water pump under the tumble dryer drum.
Dismantling instructions: 1. remove the top of the tumble dryer first (two screws at the back 2. remove the right side panel with another few screws (looking from the front) 3. disengage the multi-tooth elastic band by twisting the spring loaded roller at the bottom).
After this you have access to the water pump and the Styrofoam float that triggers the empty condenser tank warning.
If the pump is entirely clogged you might need to replace it and the float.
Then clean the bottom water reservoir from the algae infested water with a pump+hose and a bottle washing brush and circulate clean water through the machine (re-engage the elastic band before running the engine) with the Warm-program.
To kill the algae you need to run about 250ml of clear raw vinegar through the pump system by running the machine in the Warm program for 10min and then rinse the excess vinegar out by putting about half a condenser tank of warm water into the machine and running the Warm-programme for 30min. (this will release the clean water into the condenser unit for the self-cleaning function and then pump it back up into the condenser water tank and dilute and circulate the raw vinegar out of the machine).
You should also do a vinegar sanitization run before all extended periods of disuse of the machine by pouring 250ml of vinegar into the large round hole under the top condenser tank (this is where the condensed water is poured for the self-cleaning run).
Run the Warm-program without the condenser tank in place until you can verify visually that the pump is circulating the vinegar through the hose in the top left back corner of the condenser tank opening (there is a overflow drain at the back so everything coming up goes promptly back down into the main reservoir (small hole in the back corner bottom).
Then place the condenser water tank half full with hot water (not boiling) and let the Warm-programme run for 30min to dilute and circulate the vinegar-water solution out of the machine back into the condenser reservoir.

I have an IDC75 condenser dryer. Everytime i press the start button to start drying my clothes, it will not allow me to start it and immediatley shuts off the electricity in the whole kitchen. PLEASE,...


the culprit seems to be the CONDENSER BOX. This can quickly get blocked up by soggy wet lint/fluff debris from clothes. Some clothes shed more than others, so it is best to check this frequently. What happens is that when the CONDENSER BOX gets partially blocked up, it fails to condense the steamy moist air into water efficiently, and the insides of the drier start to get damp ans steamy. Depending on the amount of moisture, and the make (Some Zanussi and Hotpoint driers may be vulnerable to this), if any vulnerable electrical part get too damp, then there will be a "flash-over" between a live component and neutral or earth (usually a part connected to the casework). This can cause the kitchen circuit breaker to trip. The fix: remove your condenser box, and give it a good spray clean in the garden with your garden hose. Any large lumps of fluff/lint that are stubborn can be pushed out from between the condenser slots with a plastic ruler. Allow to dry. Then , with power removed from the drier, use a good flashlight checking that there has not been any build-up of fluff behind the condenser box area at the rear. You may need to remove the water tank as well to see more clearly. It is worthwhile also checking the little buffer-tank at the back, where there is a level sensor switch for the water tank level. If it is full of gungy water and lint, try to give it a clean out. Give your machine an hour or 2 to dry out internally a bit before attempting to dry any clothes, in case the breaker goes again. If it DOES go again, try leaving it for linger. If it still fails after being left for 24 hours, there may be a more permanent fault, inside the top back of the dryer there should be a wiring diagram(might be on the back panel of dryer) you will need to trace wires and with multimeter try to figure out what is causing the short. Hope this helps Tim

Water will not to watercontainer. Is collected on the bottom at the back of the machine and the waterlight is blinking. The clothing will not dry...


Condenser water pump failure. The tank has a float in it attached to a micro switch. That micro switch powers the pump. I have never replaced on but I strongly suspect that switch has something to do with it. Either that or something has the pump jammed or the pump has failed.
The water gets removed from the clothes by heating the air and tumbling the clothes around. The air gets saturated with water and goes into a radiator that condenses the air to remove the moisture. The water fills into a catch pan with a pump and float. When that water fills the pan the flot kicks on the pump and the water goes for a ride up to the collector where it is supposed to be periodically emptied. At the same time you clean the lint filter you should dump the water I suppose. Facinating technology. It has not yet made it over to my neck of the woods but I imagine one day it will be here. I have an asko manual but no bosch manual sorry.

Ken from Mecheltec suggests removing condensate sump and pump assembly and servicing it. Clear condensate hoses from lint and debris then carefully reinstall assembly. You should be ok.
