Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer
The motor does not turn when the start button is pressed down. Electronic display is working, ie the "drying light" turns on or the timed display counts down (depending on the program chosen). There is no sound at all. I suspect cold welds on the PCB but I cannot find a way to remove it from its clipped plasic housing. Does someone know how to remove the PCB in order to check the welds?
I solved the problem by 1) simulating the door closing by pushing a pen in to the latch area. 2) spraying T-9 Boeshield which solved the electrical connection problem. Simple as that, dryer is working again.

I did finally call Bosch and have them come out to take a look. I basically paid for the guy to come in and close the door and press on the outside of the door on the area where the door meets the latch. He said the connection has to meet and pressing it usually solves the problem. He said you can press around the small rectangular opening before you shut the door as well. I haven't had a problem since.
Hope this helps.

We had same problem. The plastic 'hook' on the door needs to press into a small rectangular opening
that looks like its got a folding door to enter the machine. I suspected the hook wasn't penetrating far enough or not pushing what ever's behind the 'door' to activate.
So I took a small flat blade screwdriver, imitated being the 'hook,' and pressed the screwdriver deep enough through the little 'door' to hear a click. Went back to standard door closing procedure, and the machine now works fine. I don't know what I did or how long this will last, but I'm keeping the screwdriver nearby!

They use an over complex door latch mechanism. problem is possibly there. need to bridge those 2 wires out first and see if it is the problem. then rectify
