I found that the dryer will not start because the door isn't fully closed. My wife has basically split the plastic door a bit, but if you firmly close the door, it will start.

This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.
Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but with the most common there are two thermostat's/switches
which could be reset, plus a no reset hi-limit ( on the lint housing )... i.e. macmarkus_15.jpg ...which cannot be reset, but the hi-limit is the one related to heating...located on the heater housing and the other (emergency shut off/belt switch) is by the motor shown below.

To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention the most likely and what to do about it.

**Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here first**

There is an auto shut off or emergency kill switch next to the motor I alluded to which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped for whatever reason.
This is the most likely scenario in my opinion based on your post...but again it depends on your model.
This will require you to remove the back panel again though. Once you've remove the rear panel, It will look like this image below and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back )...


Since you`ve already taken the back of the dryer off before to gain access you should have no problem.

Either Scenario I alluded to will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.

The other would be resetting the hi-limit cut out, You can see through the back vent opening when the vent tube is removed ( cannot be removed without removing rear panel the first time, but if attached a certain way can be done each time after ) and then by pushing the red button in...shown below.



Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear or if your model is completely different...some have line fuses at the back.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what I've read of your post...I'd suspect the hi-limit thermostat is tripped if it is indeed a WTL series Bosch.

I'm not clear as to whether or not you located the hi-limit safety, reset it, or ruled it out so I'm going to explain what to look for and what to do when you get there.

**Unplug the unit from the wall or switch off the first**

Once the dryer has been disconnected from any power, remove the rear panel...


Once the panel has successfully been removed, you'll see the heater with the Hi-Limit and NTC attached. The Hi-limit is the thermostat with the red button in the center...


push it in to reset it. As you can see by the images I've provided, if you have a multi-meter or ohm meter you can verify the proper values of the listed components.

If the hi-limit is tripped, obviously something triggered it, you can check the possible culprits such as the NTC's or heater with the info I provided above as I alluded to.

( Even so, I'd suggest running it through a cycle or two and monitor it's performance, it may have tripped simply due to poor air flow from a large load etc. and therefore nothing is actually wrong...human error )

You may run the dryer momentarily without the rear panel in place provided nothing electrical has been disconnected, don't attempt an entire cycle, just witness the heater functioning, but it isn't recommended for much longer than a minute or two.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and please let me know what you find out or if you indeed require further assistance. Good luck.

SOURCE: bosch dryer has pwr but not turning on

Unplug everything, remove the lid (only two screws) and check if the belt is still there around the middle of the drum. If the belt looks good then the problem is prolly the broken-belt electric switch that has tripped. That's described elsewhere here on Fixya. Did someone put in a mess of soaking wet clothes!?

I have a Bosch 500 Next series dryer. The dryer now is not working. The lights are on, and they give esitmated times for each drying setting. But when I click start, I hear 2 clicks, and nothing happe

Most Bosh dryer have a high limit sensor inside. Very easy to fix. disconnect power, remove back cover. there is lots of screws. usually torx head. you will see at the bottom of the dryer from the back side that there is 2 wires going to a round black "snap disk". there will be a bottom in the middle push the button in. if this dose not fix your problem you should get a in to fix it.

Bosch Dryer WTL 5410 UC do nothing after selecting a program and hitting the start button. The only thing that happens is that the Drying light lits and nothing else happens. I have tried to hit start...

Door switch may still be your problem. Mine showed lights as if working when closed but I decided to use a screwdriver and push in switch all the way in. It worked then without door closed. It will stay stuck until you pull it own a bit to release it. Give it a try. The door switch appears to have two switches in it requiring it to be all the way in.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why yourdryer will not run...

Kenmore 80 series electric dryer wont start

Push the button manually and see if the light goes off . If it does , then the problem is the thermal fuse (a white slim piece of plastic with 2 wires connected to it ) located on the blower housing beneath the drum .
