No. The timer position determines when the dryer runs and stops.

BOSCH DRYER #WTL5400UC Thanks Gentlemen, All power is there, all lights are on, but..........hit the start button and nothing happens. Please Help


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what I've read of your post...I'd suspect the hi-limit thermostat is tripped if it is indeed a WTL series Bosch.


I'm not clear as to whether or not you located the hi-limit safety, reset it, or ruled it out so I'm going to explain what to look for and what to do when you get there.

**Unplug the unit from the wall or switch off the breaker...safety first**

Once the dryer has been disconnected from any power, remove the rear panel...

i.e.

Once the panel has successfully been removed, you'll see the heater with the Hi-Limit and NTC attached. The Hi-limit is the thermostat with the red button in the center...

i.e.

03efa1a.jpg
push it in to reset it. As you can see by the images I've provided, if you have a multi-meter or ohm meter you can verify the proper values of the listed components.

If the hi-limit is tripped, obviously something triggered it, you can check the possible culprits such as the NTC's or heater with the info I provided above as I alluded to.

( Even so, I'd suggest running it through a cycle or two and monitor it's performance, it may have tripped simply due to poor air flow from a large load etc. and therefore nothing is actually wrong...human error )

You may run the dryer momentarily without the rear panel in place provided nothing electrical has been disconnected, don't attempt an entire cycle, just witness the heater functioning, but it isn't recommended for much longer than a minute or two.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and please let me know what you find out or if you indeed require further assistance. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko T701 dryer not heating up during drying cycle. Have already checked thermostats which are ok. Where do I find the heating element? Is a diagram available?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I hope to clarify the thermostat's you refer to. Attached below is the location of the cycling thermostat`s ( I suspect these are the ones you checked ? correct me if I'm wrong ) but there is one many people miss and are unaware of also shown below, that is the hi-limit safety.
The location of the reset-able safety thermostat in the second image, It is on the back wall under the black rubber cap I`m pointing at in the 2nd photo.

Hi-limit reset-able thermostat.

There is a possibility the heating element is at fault of course, but I'd like to clarify you've ruled out the hi-limit before proceeding to the heater check/repair.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to leave a testimony and rate the info I provided.

Good luck.

The dryer starts but immediately stops


Hello and welcome to Fixya. To address your question regarding the "reset", the manual reset hi-limit cut-out at the back of the dryer. It`s located on the back panel about 1/2 to 3/4 the way down and will look like a small round black rubber button. Push it to see if it "clicks" and then try your dryer. **What to look for if it`s tripped... 1) Plugged venting - make sure your venting is clean and clear of lint or un-obstructed where it exhaust`s outdoors. ( I realize you mentioned this, but check it thoroughly ). 2) Plugged lint screen - ( part # 8061812 ) This is especially relevant if one uses fabric/static sheets as they contain wax...especially lesser name brand sheets. You can clean the lint screen by removing it from the door and with some mild soap and hot/warm water wash it...an old toothbrush works well for cleaning it. Careful not to rip the fine screen. 3) The blower wheel/fan impeller ( part # 8055200 ) attached to the front of the motor which moves the air through and over the clothes in the drum may be loose, broken or covered in lint, hence causing the hi-limit to trip. 4) A faulty heating element ( part # 8063808 ) can also cause the hi-limit to trip as well. If the element is shorted to the casing it will not cycle "off" via the 115°C (part # 8008807 ) cycling thermostat, thus cycling off via the hi-limit 150°C ( part # 8008487 ). Let me know how that works or if you`ve already tried that. If it is tripped, resetting it may only temporarily resolve your problem since it is usually tripped due to venting or heater issues. If it is not tripped let me know and we can explore other possibilities. good luck. macmarkus :)

Dryer quit running after I tried to unplug it. Is


Well it could be the lid switch but the limit is not resetable. The part number is WE4X800c65b84b.jpgYou need to open the door and remove some screws holding the top down. Then maybe you can get to it by raising or removing the top depending on the model. These dudes are expensive so fix the problem before you gotta buy some more.. Their is an air restriction or a shorted heater element. I have repair photos HERE

My Fisher paykel dryer does not heat


Thermostat Cutout – Manual Reset (Electrical)
Type SPST 30 Amps/240 Volts AC
Trip Temperature 212°F (100°C)
Diagnostic Mode
Entering the Diagnostic Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Auto Dry down button, then press the Power
button.
The dryer is now in level 0 of the diagnostic mode. After initial entry into the
diagnostic mode, the Start/Pause button operates the dryer as normal. Press
the Auto Dry up or down buttons to scroll through the fault levels.
There are several levels of diagnostics, most of which are used in
development and production. These levels may bring on various LEDs, but
the level of use for the service technician is that of the last fault.
Last Fault
To enter the last fault diagnostics, enter the diagnostic mode as described
above, then press the Auto Dry up button three times. The last fault will be
displayed on the drying progress LEDs
Conductivity Contact Impedance Check
To enter the conductivity contact impedance check, enter the diagnostic mode
as described above, then press the Auto Dry up button five times. In this
mode, touching damp clothes or fingers across the conductivity contacts will
cause the LED display to change. If the contacts, or the harness to them,
have gone open circuit, no change will occur in the LED display. This is a
useful method of checking the integrity of the sensor circuits.
To exit the diagnostic mode, press any cycle button.
Entering the Data Download Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Auto Dry down button, then press the Power
button. This enters the diagnostic mode.
(c) Press the Regular button.
Encoded data is transmitted serially out the red Auto LED, and is be captured
by an optical download pen attached to a PC where “Smart Tool” software
interprets the data to aid servicing.
To exit, press the Regular button.
Entering the Showroom Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Air Dry button, then press the Power button.
The LEDs will flash in a random sequence.
To exit, turn off the power supply to the dryer at the wall.
Tell me what sort of faults codes you can come up with and I will tell you what it means but in the meantime reset the limit and clean out the lint problem, open the stopped up vent. That dryer has to breath or that safety will kick out again. I have the manual
