Question about Bosch Dryers

Open Question

The dryer turns itself off and indicates water emptying is needed

Although there is no water and i have cleaned the filter the dryer goes on for less than a minute and then stops with the warning light for emptying the water on. If i turn on power but do not push for start, the pump will pump out a little water for about one minute. Is it something with the pump and can it be replaced? I have Bosch WTE84100SK.
Thanks for any advice!

SOURCE: Bosch Tumble Dryer Filter Light

Helenhjb, there is a couple of things I can think of that can cause this. The filter is one. The mesh on the filter is extremely fine, so get a steady stream of water running, then put the filter under the water. If the water doesn't run straight thru, then wash the filter with detergent until the water does run straight thru. If this works fine, then your issue may be that the door switch is set too far back and when you do heavy loads, the laundry pushes on the door and shuts down the dryer. On the Bosch, any time you open the door during the cycle, it will flash the lint filter lamp. The only other thing I know of usually has an E:01 flashing on the display is restricted vent. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lint Filter

hi there,

i can understand your frustration. i have reviewed the information that i have from Bosch and they indicate that the lint filter indicator light should only come on as a reminder but should not shut off the dryer.

here is my recommendation and also a question:

the dryer is shutting off due to the fact that it's overheating. it's a safety precaution from the manufacturer and it's built in to prevent the lint collected in the lint filter, since it's highly flammable.

check the venting in the back or side, wherever it was installed.
the vent tube is often the cause for the dyer to stop functioning.
if that turns out to be okay, the dyer is equiped with a sensor on the heater. it is possible that it's opening due to the heat generated by the dryer that has nowhere to go.

does the display show any error messages?

can you tell me what they are?

thanks again

SOURCE: I have a Bosch Maxx condenser tumble dryer that wont work.

Have you taken the condenser itself out from the bottom of the machine? Remove the condenser from the bottom door and rotate the clamp tags which secure it in. Slide condenser out (aluminium mutli-finned box assembly) and carefully take it outside. Use a garden hose with lots of water pressure to spray each vent passage carefully to clear lint and dust away. Passages must be cleared in both directions, long ways and cross ways. Cross ways is the problem area and once you finish clearing the air ways you should see daylight through the condenser easily. Reassemble and always clear lint filter in the door /drum area.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch dryer warning sounder for container full will not stop

Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

Hotpoint condensing dryer model TCFS93BGP. cleanfilter/empty water light keeps coming on after 3/4 minutes


Hi, my dryer has 3 things to check out of which one is more hidden:
- empty the water reservoir
- clean filter in the door
- clean condensor which is hidden below the bottom panel which has to be released through a button behind the door

The last one is less obvious and more difficult to find/reach. Might need to consult the manual.

Did you check all 3?

Hope this helps

I have a sunbeam 1387 warm mist humidifier. I need to know how to clean scale from the filter. It looks like it can be taken apart. Can it?


Actually, Carol, it shouldn't be necessary to take the unit apart. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and allow it to sit overnight. Then empty the solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and allow it to run for 1 hour. Then empty any remaining Distilled Water. Doing all the aforementioned, should have not only cleaned the filter, but also the unit itself. If you use Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rater than tap water, the filter and the plumbing of the unit will stay clean longer and will require less maintenance.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Empty water button staying on


Remove lower left filter from dryer, and wash it out under running water. Reach inside the compartment and clean any fluff and gunge you can find there.
Get a plastic bag tie or similar, and feel for and locate a small hole at the rear of compartment, poke it clear with bag tie.
If you are certain that the element and stats are o/k , and it still does not heat and the light stays on, then that indicates that the float switch is stuck or is faulty.
To access this involves stripping the dryer down, not an easy job.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch tumble dryer


I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.

Not sure about the drawer leak, but have some ideas about the refusal to empty. Have a look at the section in your instruction manual (copy here: http://www.serviceforce.co.uk/pdfs/U23119.pdf) about cleaning the filter (pages 20-21). Check the filter isn't completely choked. Expect quite a lot of water to come out when you remove the filter. While you've got the filter out, have a look in the hole it came out of. At the back of the cavity you should see the pump impeller (looks like a four-bladed fan). With the power off(!) give this a spin with your fingertip. It should be free to turn (although it's normal for the movement to be very notchy). If it won't turn, see if you can find anything jammed up in it. Keep looking in the same cavity. Somewhere about halfway back, usually on the top wall, you should find a large hole (this is how the dirty water gets into the pump). Slip your finger as far into this as you can without getting it stuck, and just check nothing is blocking it (20p coins are favourite problems here). If you've still drawn a blank, then without replacing the filter turn the power back on, set the machine going on a spin cycle, and look to see if the pump impeller is whizzing round. Don't be tempted to touch it, as it can rap your knuckles very hard. If it won't turn, you probably need a new pump. Replacing a pump is a pretty low-stress affair. It's more or less obvious where everything is meant to go. You can get a new pump from one of the internet parts suppliers for about £35 (it's worth shopping around, as prices very wildly). Hope this helps a bit. A.
