Maintenance lights won't go away

Hello. thank you in advance for your help. i have a Bauknecht TK Care 6B dryer. i live in germany and i know bauknecht is manufactured as whirlpool in the states. after 6 months of use the dryer stopped and 3 red lights started blinking. each light indicated empty water container, clean heat unit, and clean dirt filter. not knowing much german, i just realized i didn't clean the heat unit on the bottom of the dryer on a monthly basis. i cleaned everything according to the maintenance instruction but the red lights won't go away and the dryer won't start. please help! elaine

Elaine hopefully this will help. advance your selector dial to the 6 o'clock position, press start 3x. advance your selector dial to 7 o'clock position, press start 3x. turn the unit off then on. try using it as normal.

SOURCE: Not heating up

I would check the thermo fuse in the back of dryer.. its on the burner towards the top.. use omh meter and check if its good. If you dont have a meter, if very careful and just hook wires togeter and tape so nothing touches and will not short out by touching anything, bypass switch JUST to see if switch is bad! Replace it if bad

Clean the exhaust line connected to the rear of the dryer.
Run a load of laundry with the rear duct removed completely and see if the light comes on.

Dear Sir:

Thank you by you request, I hope everything is fine.

I will try to help you.

Do this :

Lookat the circuit to be measured, in this case I chose to check an outlet. In thiscase I need to check if an outlet is live.
    • 2
Keep fingers behind the fingerprotectors Thevoltage in a house circuit will range from 120 Volts in the wall outlets, to220 Volts at the range and dryer outlet. Both of which can kill instantly. Thisis where extreme care and safety must be observed. Inspect leads and probes fordamage and cracks. If any damage or cracks is found DO NOT USE, THROW AWAY!!!Keep fingers behind the finger guard as seen in the picture.
    • 3
200 Volts AC scale Choosea range which exceeds the voltage you expect to measure. You will need tochoose the AC scale.

I have bauknecht cloth washing machine,is written in Germany so i can not operate it,i need english,model wt9640


You will need to go on-line I suspect.
Type in 'bauknecht washer manual' into your search engine and you should be presented with sources from where you can download for free or have to pay.
Good luck,

Dryer runs 15 min. or so then motor starts to vibrate and then it dies push to start right away and it just buzzes but let it cool and it starts again. also the timer won't advance in auto


Another one ! I just had one of these today in my real live service calls. What you are describing is almost certainly a broken blower wheel assy. With the blower broken the auto cycle won`t advance and the unit can`t exhaust the heat and moisture sufficiently and consequently overheats and shuts down, hence the motor buzzing when you attempt to restart the dryer. Pull it apart if you can and inspect the blower wheel. Its at the front of the unit attached to the motor shaft.

Hope that explains something, or helps move you forward. Let me know.

Good Luck,

macmarkus :)
