Question about Bosch Vision 300 Series 6.7 cu. ft. Electric Dryer - WTVC3300
I purchased a Bosch 300 series from Sears. My son was home when the technicians installed the washer and dryer. They connected cold water pipe with the hot water hose and the other way around. The machine is working only on hot water. We waste energy and my girlfriend wants to use cold water for the delicate clothing. I switched the hose cold with cold and hot with hot and the machine stops and gives me an error. Can you help me please ?.
My name is Peter. I am a retired (excuse the expression) Sears field service appliance technician.
First, The people who installed your appliances are not technicians. Sears contracts delivery people to deliver appliances.
Often, It is not uncommon for me to make service calls the day after an appliance has been installed.
First, shut both the hot and cold water supply valves off. Remove the connection hoses from the valves. Be careful, where I am going with this is, after years of not being operated your shut off valves my be bad and partially block with rubber seating material. So, when you turn off the valves some water will still be in the lines. Your valves could be turned off, faulty and full open.
Now, with the hoses removed, open each water valve. Check for full flow. If you have a blocked cold water valve you will get an error code.
Next, the connections on your washer are marked; 'C' & 'H'. Make sure you have the hot water line to the 'H' and the cold water line to the 'C'. You will get an error code if the lines are reversed.

I found this on justanswer.com, I am going to try it this weekend and I will post an update.
"Ok if you remove the left hand side panel then located at the back is the drain pump
remove the hose on it which goes up to the bottle and blow up it to make sure its clear.
If thats fine then remove the pump and clear any fluff thats in there and make sure the impeller is ok and turning fine.
Then refit and try again hopefully this should sort it out.
let me know if you need anymore info."

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but based on your post it is most likely the emergency shut off/belt switch. It is located by the motor and in the event of too heavy a load or a broken belt it shuts the unit down & prevents any restart...until it is repaired or reset. To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention what to do about it. **Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here please...safety first** This will require you to remove the back panel. Once you've remove the rear panel, It is located next to the belt pulley and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back ) Let me know if you require further assistance to do this. Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear. I'm presently on my iphone, but I can post more info with pictures to guide you if necessary...but please let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

As a matter of fact I have solved the problem. The dryer is now fully functioning again. :-)
I'll try to explain how to fix the problem:
The water that condenses in the condensor (doh!) drips down into a container situated below the condensor. The moist air that passes through the condensor is the same air that circulates via the clothes, thus it also contains some lint that the filter doesn't catch. Over time there will be some build-up of lint and mucus (?), clogging the tank AND a sensor that sends a signal to the electronics to start the pump that evacuates the condensed water to the removable tank in the upper part of the machine. This messes up the function of the water evacuation system.
Alright, pull out the condensor and find a hatch in the 'floor' in the farther part of the compartment. Below the hatch you'll find the container that collects the condensed water. Start by cleaning it as thoroughly as you can. There are a few 'nooks and crannies', take your time, also flush with some fresh water and maybe some gentle cleanser to get rid of the mucus. The pump and the sensor for the pump are located in the left part (viewing from front of the machine) of the container. Try to flush there as well.
If this procedure doesn't solve the problem you'll have to disassemble the machine to also be able to remove the pump and sensor housing. I had to do this on mine. Quite a few screws to remove and keep track of, but pretty straight forward if aren't too uncomfortable with 'fixing things'.
I have some pictures of the 'project' somewhere, let me know if you would like to see them or if I may help you some other way.
