Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 Dryer
Have a Bosch Nexxt 500 series electric dryer. Been working great then it just stopped blowing hot air out the vent. Need to know how to take front panel off of dryer to check to see if any clothing feel into vent inside dryer (I have kids). Also like to clean inside of dryer of lint build up. Will remove from vent to check dryer output, but it just stopped pumping out hot air, so that is why I am suppecting something inside just plugged up. Thanks!!

If you are using dryer sheets...stop. They clog your linter filter. Use windex to clean the filter and a soft bristle brush....also check to ensure your dryer vent is clear using a shop vac to clean or a vent brush.

Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue

This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but based on your post it is most likely the emergency shut off/belt switch. It is located by the motor and in the event of too heavy a load or a broken belt it shuts the unit down & prevents any restart...until it is repaired or reset. To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention what to do about it. **Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here please...safety first** This will require you to remove the back panel. Once you've remove the rear panel, It is located next to the belt pulley and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back ) Let me know if you require further assistance to do this. Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear. I'm presently on my iphone, but I can post more info with pictures to guide you if necessary...but please let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)
