Question about Dryers
Took apart the filter box cleaned the entire inside and replaced. Where is sensor? Light still says check screen.
The sensor is located inside the plenum where the screen slides into. It will be a small metal probe sticking out to measure temperature in the cavity. Make sure the big metal hose coming off the back of the dryer is clear as well as the vent flap leading to the outside before you go tearing the dryer apart. If no airflow paths are blocked the sensor is likely bad. They almost all fail in the safest condition to prevent vent fires. Sensors are cheap and can be purchased online fairly cheap.

We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.

If you use dryer sheets they create a wax coating on the lint screen,even tho it looks clean,use dish soap and hot water to remove this,dry it then put it back in and try it.

i got the same problem and no repair man could help . i think i just got mine fixed 6-15-09 .what you do is go behind the dryer , remove the air duct and then remove the pipe that is inside the machine by removing one screw . this will give you access inside the machine .first clean as much as you can of the lint inside by vacuuming it . if you look to the left you will see 2 wires with a black button in the middle this is the ignitor ,clean it good because i think the dirt is not allowing it to light up . i did that and mine is working but the cooling light is still on .
