SOURCE: Will not start

are you sure the switch on the door is working properly has this been checked properly if so the probelm could be with the motor as the build up of lint could cause it to over heat therefore blowing something on the board this will need to be checked you will need to check that you have got power going to the motor and the correct amount of power myself i would have said replace the switch on the door but if you are sure you have checked this then the problem could be the motor or the board that powers the motor check all conectionsand look to see if you can see any areas that look like it has over heated if you have a resistance testor you could check the board if not you will need to go to a repair shop and get them to test the board and motor for you hope this is some help

SOURCE: bosch dryer lint light flashes

My Bosch Nexxt electric dryer had the same problem with the lint filter light blinking and the dryer not running. It turned out that the door switch was not engaging. The service technician informed me that there is a plastic tab (available only by opening the top access panel) that was not fully snapped in place. When he snapped the tab back in place and then secured it with a screw, the door switch fully engaged, the lint filter light went out, and the dryer ran perfectly! I hope that helps you!

With the exhaust clear, you need to be sure that air is actually moving. It could be a bound or bad exhaust blower.

SOURCE: dryer will not heat. lint filter is clean. dryer

I think this is all good advice. I have a Bosch that was not drying well at all. I called for repair, and the guy showed me that the problem was my lint filter. I grew up with very coarse, metal lint filters. I am not used to these super fine German mesh jobs. So, even though I thought I was cleaning the filter, over time there was a fine build-up of lint that created a blockage. He showed me this by removing the lint screen and running water on it. The water just pooled on the surface. What you need to do is run hot water and soap through it, getting it extremely clean until it is transparent. Then the dryer worked fine again. My dryer was putting out heat (I could feel the back of the machine getting hot), but the blocked lint filter (which looked clean, but wasn't) triggered some sort of sensor that ended the cycle prematurely. Everything works fine now, and the solution was only hot soap and water. You should only have to do this once in a awhile.

Wtmc3500uc-bosch front load dryer -lint light preventing the dryer from working


You may very likely have to take the machine all apart and clean the inside lint tubes, as they may be plugged up.
If this is the problem, it is because the lint inside the machine is so bad that to continue to run it could cause it to catch fire.
I have cleaned 6 machines in the last 2 years that were so bad I got a shoe box of lint out of each machine.
God bless your efforts.

How do ou get to the heating element in a Bosch WTVC533SCN/09


These heaters, and safety thermostats are accessed from the rear of the unit by unplugging the dryer from the wall, and removing all the screws that hold the rear silver panel on after removing the main top. The heater is located in the lower right corner. While the heaters are less likely to fail, you do have a red button reset thermostat that often is the reason for no heat. These resettable thermostats trip for a reason, and become easily strained when tripped even on the first time, a real cause of failure should be discovered regardless what part has gone bad. Home vent systems should be checked by a reputable vent company. Remove the lint filter, and using a flashlight, you should be able to see a tiny probe in the lower left bottom area of the lint filter housing, if it's covered with lint, or even partially covered, this housing needs to be completely cleaned. Additionally the Bosch lint filters themselves are very fine filters, and are subject to congestion by both lint, and residue from dryer sheets. It's advisable these filters should be cleaned with warm water, and a de-greaser like pine-sol or similar to ensure they are breathing properly. Pleazer Appliance...

I recently had an ventless Bosch dryer installed (WTE8600US) and I keep receiving this message F:03 which the manual says "check hose for condensation outlet". any advice?


For the F:03 problem on the Bosch Axxis (WTE86300US) do all the things mentioned in Solution #1 above. Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back)can be quite stuck. Use a pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. However there is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual or in Solution #1. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place. This should fix your problem.

Bosch Dryer lint filer warning


The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.

It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
