Question about Bosch Dryers

1 Answer

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.

See above. I don't have a continuity tester, so I can't check the heating element that way.

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

SOURCE: bosch nexxt 3300 dryer not heating

with the dryer unplugged 220v is not fun
with a meter, and first disconnecting cables to each component and reconnecting them after the test is complete
check the continuity of the element, it may have burned out
check continuity of the thermostats on the heater housing and fan housing,
check the interior of the fan body for sox and lint

not a solution, yet

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.

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

never really heard of a condenser model dryer before however it does seem like internally its full of lent inside of the dryer housing itself around the heating elements if you have a large air compressor open it all up and spray air into everything in the dryer where you see lent build up this will force any lent out of the dryer and it should hopefully run as the day you first got it ;P found this to be an issue even with an LG TROMM dryer i opened up and wasnt drying very well
