Question about Dryers
Bought an almost new 2nd hand Bosch dryer WTA74100ZA/04 in excellent condition. Started fine. Then I added a large load of clothes and set it off. Fine until I moved it slightly - heard a bang, saw a flash, and now 3 front lights flash but it doesn't start. Nothing inside looks loose or burnt out, in fact it looks pristine. Q: is there a reset button or switch? Or both.
The lights are flashing as an error code? what lights are lit/flashing, what rate of flashing etc? more information may help sort this faster

SOURCE: Dryer won't Start
the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

The problem is with the lower water tank float switch, it is stuck. Take off the right hand side panel (as you are facing the machine) at the bottom you will see a spring mechanism for the belt tension. Beside this there are 2 electrical connectors. Take them off and spray with wd40 or similar. Whilst off give the plastic box they fit 2 a light tap with a hammer to free the float switch. Reconnect and try. If this fails you can over-ride by leaving the left hand of the two plugs off. This will get your machine working but you will not have an indication as to when the water container needs emptying so you will need to remember.

I have 5 years old Bosch gas dryer. It will not start today, start/stop is blinking and it will not start. What can be the problem.

I had the same trouble after moving to a new house, I first thought I had a voltage problem. It turns out that the heating coil has a high temp re-setable switch in side the back - lower right side. the sencor has 2 screws, I took it out and cleaned off the lint and now have dryed 5 loads with 0 issues. looks like a flaw in design that would allow lint to get in the heating coils!!!!! I think I'm going to look for a new dryer before I burn down the house!!
