Hot air not blowing out vent.

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

Hi,
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.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer. Today I was

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 :)

My Bosch Nexxt 500 dryer is TOO HOT.


You need to take care of this right away. Too many houses catch fire from lack of maintenance on dryers. Pull it away from the wall and unplug it. Check the inside of the duct work and clean it out. Then check the inside of the drier connection too. Run it without the duct connected and see if you have good air flow.

Bosch Nexxt 800 series dryer E01 error


My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.

Vent


if it were electric I'd say it was ok, but for gas, the combustion products go out through the vent along with the humidity.
