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.

SOURCE: Bosch condensation dryer model WTL5400vc. lint filter alarm

there is a reservoir in the base of the dryer which holds some condensing water prior to the pump pumping it to the holding tank at the top this has a float swith to tell the pump to come on and drain water to top tank this is probably stuck in the on position so the machine thinks it is always full of water and its waiting for you to empty it,you need to remove side panel and remove flost switch to clean, remove condenser and put youre hand in back of unit if its still very wet in there thats the problem should be bone dry at end of cycle.

hope this helps

SOURCE: Dryer not working, indicates "lint

This is a common complaint with this dryer.The probe generating this problem,is at fault.It likely has a film on it,from the dryer sheets.Remove the lint screen,and wipe down the probe that sticks into the air box.Should fix the problem,if not ,replace the probe.

The heat stopped working on my Bosch WTL 5100 dryer (the dryer turns around just fine). I cleaned out the condenser filter, then opened up the back and pressed the red reset button. It worked -- once.


are u getting the full 240 voltage in some machines it uses 2 settings to run and to heat? u might get 120 for running it but the other 120 to run heat> thus u get it running but no heat? other wise u may have a bad heating element or hi-lo thermostat or the thermal cut off fuse, u can check with multimeter and u can buy cheap multimeter at places like harbor freight for 5 bucks

Where is the reset button?


Most Bosch dryers have a heater reset button behind the main rear panel. If this thermostat has tripped, there is a REASON, resetting it may make things work for a short time but your issue is bound to return. There are many other things to check on Bosch dryers to ensure proper air flow throughout the dryer and house venting. Pleazer Appliance...

What does E1 mean?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Can you possibly double check that model number and reply post. I ask because the "E1" error should only pertain to those models which are condensor (non-vented)... "WTL" dryers.

The error indicates either a blocked drain hose or a failed pump. This from Bosch...


E1 Pump failed

(WTL 5400condensationdryer only) Pump failed.

Check voltage at and wiring to pump.

Turn off dryer, measure pump resistance (110 - 136 ?) and replace faulty pump.

Also - Following items apply only to the WTL (Condensation Electric Dryer) models

Cycle is interrupted and ''E1'' appears in display• Condensate hose is blocked in some way. Turn off dryer and check hose.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help you move forward in any manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My WTL 5410 dryer (electric condensation) has hot air coming out of the low rear duct opening (where the condentate hose connection is located. The hose is properly connected and occationally has water...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

You are correct, the unit being a condenser model doesn`t require any additional venting or exhaust to outdoors, that is the purpose of condensing the moisture internally.

As to the issue of air flowing out of the unit I`d suspect perhaps the heat exchange may need cleaning, if it is plugged it will cause the air to be directed elsewhere.

I`ve attempted to attach below the procedure for cleaning, if unsuccessful for whatever reason, too small for example, you or your landlord can email me at macmarkus@live.ca and I can send you the "pdf" guide for your Bosch dryer.

Keep me posted on your findings and I`ll try to assist you further if need be.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today and good luck.

Please take a moment to rate the info presented and leave a testimony if you feel it warranted.
