SOURCE: low heatworks, high heat does not.

it sounds like you need a set of thermo switches. one may have stopped functioning. a service tech can test them easily. should be low cost

SOURCE: my dryer does not not produce enough heat when in operation. It seems like it is just running and generating very low heat. Please help.

Really sounds like an element is burnt out or a safety has malfuctioned. Possible loss of power so check plug, recept., and breaker. Look for burnt terminals and reset breaker even if it does not look tripped. Dryer usually have 2 elements. One for low heat and both for hi heat. May want to check this out. Please keep in mind that some repairs can cost more than buying a new dryer. I got one at Lowes for about $200 and it works great. I don't think you can get a repair guy out and to the repairs for that amount. Just depends on how many whistles, buzzers, and bells you want on your machine.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: bosch tumble dryer, model wta 4100 , no heat,

If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Why does my bosch dryer wta 2910 only blow cold air?


If the exhaust vent tubes have never been removed and thoroughly cleaned in years this will cause the sensor to keep the heat off in your dryer. If clean the moister sensor is at fault

Bosch wta 2000 dryer, heats but drum not turning


If you can hear the motor running then the belt has came off or it is broken. If you cant hear the motor then you possibly have a bad motor.

Bosch Dryer misfunction


Check the fuse. This is a German unit, so every part including the light bulb is 208/240 volts. If the fuse for the dryer on the back is open the unit will not start.
