I need to get into the area to vacumm up left over lint that the filter didn't catch. Looks like there may be a way to open a part from the inside of the dryer. Please help.

SOURCE: lint filter wanring signal

I posted in late December on the lint alarm and what I discovered was a bit alarming. (no pun intended) Lint had been accumulating on and around the heating coils used to dry our clothes. Some of the lint was burnt and the remainder, amounting to a small handful, was caught up in other area's around the lint sensor. After carefully cleaning the heating coils (with a tooth brush) and removing the rest of the lint and successfully putting everything back together, we have not had a lint alarm issue since. (Touch wood). No need to replace the lint sensor or any other parts. It was not that hard to take apart the back and remove the heating coils to clean, but it requires the unit to be unplugged, careful attention to what came off and where it goes back on. After what I found, I will be cleaning the heater coils out once a year. Which then raises the question. Should a person have to do this? The obvious answer is no! But from time to time we buy things that are not what we would expect and do what we need to do to make it work. From what I can tell, lint is getting past the lint filter and ending up where it shouldn't be. Hope this helps any of you that are having the same issue.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Electric Dryer: lint filter light goes on even though it does not need emptying

I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.

So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...

This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

SOURCE: How do you clean the lint filter area?

I hate this dryer overall..but, re: the lint: i purchased a long bristol brush from brookstone that is made for these kind of situations. It kind of looks like a long "rifle" cleaning barrel. it helps alittle. just stil it in the dryer and keep turning the handle and try to collect lint as possible. overall..i hate this damn dryer plus it takes forever to dry approx: 1 1/2 hrs to dry one load. my bosch washer model wfmc 6400 series sucks also..it shakes constantly throught out the entire wash..and drain cloggs alost.

SOURCE: bosch dryer lint sensor light comes on; at start

Well the 2 sensors located in the front sheild. One is a hi limit which has 2 seperate wires is a one time blow fuse type rated at 194F. The other is an actual sensor with a 10K rating at 77F. There is another sensor located on the front of the heater housing which has the same 10k at 77F. These 2 sensors measure air flow. After reassembly try unplugging to reset control.

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...

Do you use dryer sheets? The chemical in dryer sheets seal up the little holes in the lint filters. To test, take the lint filter to the sink and see if it holds water. If it does, give it a good scrub and toss out the dryer sheets.

Bosch vision 300 gas dryer shows error E12 evry few min. Checked and cleaned lint. Checked exhaust vent. Still E12 every 10-15 min. The dryer is only 6 months old.


A friend of ours has a bosch gas dryer and she had the similar problem. She called the Bosch repairman and he came out to her house and sprayed the lint filter with Greased Lightning to clean out the tiny holes in it. He charged $100 and left. He said it would take care of the problem. Has not had any problems since. http://www.greased-lightning.com/ It is worth a try. Good luck.

On my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Electric Dryer keeps shutting off and gives the E-01 error we have check the exhaust air duct on back of the dryer and we have vacuumed the inside bearing shield what else...


Motor won't work
Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped.
Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows.
Wire harness failed.
Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness.
Display shows "E:01" during drying.
Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked.
Air leaking past felt drum seal.
Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet).
Clean out filter, air duct and air damper.
Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly).
Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area

Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer, E:01 and lint light flashing. nothing is stuck in the door.


Hi,
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.
