SOURCE: Bosch nexxt 500 series dryer

I had the same trouble after moving to a new house, I first thought I had a voltage problem. It turns out that the heating coil has a high temp re-setable switch in side the back - lower right side. the sencor has 2 screws, I took it out and cleaned off the lint and now have dryed 5 loads with 0 issues. looks like a flaw in design that would allow lint to get in the heating coils!!!!! I think I'm going to look for a new dryer before I burn down the house!!

SOURCE: my bosch nexxt 500 series electric dryer is not

We had the same problem. Cleaned out lint filter and still no heat. We took off the back (lots of screws and had to take top off to get back off). If you are looking at back - at the bottom left there was a red reset button and it clicked when we pressed it (when we pressed it again there was no click). Worked fine after. This solution came from internet. My brother-in-law changed setting to "extra dry"- we usually just used 20/40/60 setting. I think it overheated.

SOURCE: My Bosch Exxcel dryer does not heat up, the drum

Could be either the heating element or the thermostat/s.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

A friend of ours has a bosch gas dryer and she had the similar problem. She called the Bosch repairman and he came out to her house and sprayed the lint filter with Greased Lightning to clean out the tiny holes in it. He charged $100 and left. He said it would take care of the problem. Has not had any problems since. http://www.greased-lightning.com/ It is worth a try. Good luck.

SOURCE: Where do I find the

Have a Nexxt 3300 and believe yours is about the same so yes, several screws to remove from the back. Top also has to come off because two screws to the back are under the top. And for the top to come off the control panel has to be pulled away. Only four screws under four white caps to remove for panel to be loosened. The top is attached with two screws in the back and four nylon clips under the top. The red reset button will be easy to see after removing the back. It is attached to the heating element housing. It is not hard to do, just a pain to get to the reset button. Link to Bosch appliance website with give you a diagram to help. http://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/us/prodp.htm?prod=WTMC632SUS%2f02&ESHOPTYPE=A Good luck.

Do you use dryer sheets? The chemical in dryer sheets seal up the little holes in the lint filters. To test, take the lint filter to the sink and see if it holds water. If it does, give it a good scrub and toss out the dryer sheets.

I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.
