Either your heater is blow or your thermal cut outs are blown easy to check and replace ...
The are located at the back of the dryer behind the protuding funny shaped panel...
Check the continuity on the t-stats if no present then replace both of them small round things
then its the heater....

There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.
There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.
So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.
Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.
Hopefully this helps. GB

It could be something as simple as the water drawer is not properly in it's little compartment. Try repositioning it. This video shows how a dryer like yours works:

I had exactly the same problem and got it fixed by the Bosch repair service today.
The culprit is that in certain areas there may be algae in the air that thrive to grow in the main water reservoir and clog up the water pump that fills the condensation compartment.
(note: There are two water tanks in the Ecologixx 7 - one user serviceable condenser tank up top and the non-user serviceable main water reservoir sealed inside the machine)
This is main water reservoir is located sealed under the water pump under the tumble dryer drum.
Dismantling instructions: 1. remove the top of the tumble dryer first (two screws at the back 2. remove the right side panel with another few screws (looking from the front) 3. disengage the multi-tooth elastic band by twisting the spring loaded roller at the bottom).
After this you have access to the water pump and the Styrofoam float that triggers the empty condenser tank warning.
If the pump is entirely clogged you might need to replace it and the float.
Then clean the bottom water reservoir from the algae infested water with a pump+hose and a bottle washing brush and circulate clean water through the machine (re-engage the elastic band before running the engine) with the Warm-program.
To kill the algae you need to run about 250ml of clear raw vinegar through the pump system by running the machine in the Warm program for 10min and then rinse the excess vinegar out by putting about half a condenser tank of warm water into the machine and running the Warm-programme for 30min. (this will release the clean water into the condenser unit for the self-cleaning function and then pump it back up into the condenser water tank and dilute and circulate the raw vinegar out of the machine).
You should also do a vinegar sanitization run before all extended periods of disuse of the machine by pouring 250ml of vinegar into the large round hole under the top condenser tank (this is where the condensed water is poured for the self-cleaning run).
Run the Warm-program without the condenser tank in place until you can verify visually that the pump is circulating the vinegar through the hose in the top left back corner of the condenser tank opening (there is a overflow drain at the back so everything coming up goes promptly back down into the main reservoir (small hole in the back corner bottom).
Then place the condenser water tank half full with hot water (not boiling) and let the Warm-programme run for 30min to dilute and circulate the vinegar-water solution out of the machine back into the condenser reservoir.

Technician just solved that annoying problem. My dryer is few months old and without pump, so condensed water is dripping to tank by gravity. During drying cloth is collected on filter and condenser, but some amount of cloth goes into pipes and canals on the bottom of dryer and clogged non-return valve where tank is inserted. Side panel ha has to be removed, canals and valve cleaned. To prevent problem technician suggested condenser and filter cleaning after every use. Valve can be removed from bottom without removing side panel.
