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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for you info. How can I check on a bad exhaust motor when I can't get the dryer turned on?"
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.
