Question about Dryers
I have a Bosch WTL6106Gb dryer. Water is not pumping up to the container, I can hear the pump working, but water comes out of the back and from the fan. I have tried cleaning everything I can think of.

Most Bosch WTL models to my knowledge has a small drain pump at the back of the bottom base underneath a lip top cover. If you would follow the condensation drain hose after the hose connector, the other end would be attached to the said pump. When you force air back and you hear air bubbling, that would be on the pump that has some water still in it.
Rather than kinks or blockage, pls check for any hairline crack or split on the condensation drain hose.
As to "red light indicating that this container is full" pls check if your "water container at the top" "which pulls out for emptying" has some sort of waterlevel detection (a pair of wire attached to a float mechanism. Otherwise, that red light is not indicating that the top container is full but rather that red light is indicating that the bottom base container is full and that the drain pump is not running. There is a float very near the drain pump that activates it. Having said this, then perhaps what the manual is referring to as "safety container for run-over water" is actually the "water container at the top".
Then it would either be the drain pump or the float switch that would have to be attended to.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you taken the condenser itself out from the bottom of the machine? Remove the condenser from the bottom door and rotate the clamp tags which secure it in. Slide condenser out (aluminium mutli-finned box assembly) and carefully take it outside. Use a garden hose with lots of water pressure to spray each vent passage carefully to clear lint and dust away. Passages must be cleared in both directions, long ways and cross ways. Cross ways is the problem area and once you finish clearing the air ways you should see daylight through the condenser easily. Reassemble and always clear lint filter in the door /drum area.

I found this on justanswer.com, I am going to try it this weekend and I will post an update.
"Ok if you remove the left hand side panel then located at the back is the drain pump
remove the hose on it which goes up to the bottle and blow up it to make sure its clear.
If thats fine then remove the pump and clear any fluff thats in there and make sure the impeller is ok and turning fine.
Then refit and try again hopefully this should sort it out.
let me know if you need anymore info."

You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.
