Likely the heating element took that opportunity to quit. These's a possibility something came loose but you need a good handyman/electrician to check the element and you will need the serial number/make/model etc off the sticker on the back when looking for the part or handing it over to your local appliance shop. Bear in mind the time you have had it and whether to bin it and buy new.

Dryer heats in a 'no heat' selection


it sounds like you have a grounded heat element and the heat will stay on all the time,very easy to check,unplug the dryer,pull the two wires off of the heat element,with a meter touch one lead to the outside metal cover of the heater and the other lead to one of the element,then check the other side of the element the same way,if it shows continuity on one end of the element it's grounded and needs to be replaced with a new heating element.and every year or 18 months you have to clean out the dryer,i use a shop vac and a leaf blower,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,remove the lint filter and the metal duct that the filter slides into,vac up all the lint you can see,brush out the hole where the filter goes and with a long thin screw driver dig out the lint that's in the right and left sides of the plastic slots where the filter slides in,now with the shop vac set it to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and blow the motor off and vac up the lint,after you clean out the cabinet go to the back and remove the vent line from the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,if you do this every year you'll have less problems with the dryer,your clothes will dry on time and you don't have to worry about a dryer fire.

Turn dryer on and it starts to heat up and then the heat stops and within about 2-3 minutes will start to heat up and then the heating up stops.


Clean out the exhaust vent tubing really good.. A moister sensor will detect any build up of lint and shut the heat off

No heat in dryer. This is a stacked dryer/washer combo. The dryer is electric. The drum turns and timer works but there is no heat in the dryer or exiting the vent. The washing maching beneath the dryer...


The element to heat the dryer has gone out. You removed the back of the dryer to remove lint you will need to remove the back of the dryer again to access the heating element. It is in the lower left or right hand corner (depending on model) and looks like the inside of a toaster oven small thin wires. Take the assembly out (make sure the unit is unplugged always) get the model and serial # and purchase replacement from an appliance parts house.

Good Luck hope this helped you some

Heating Element no longer working


Hi Paige
Expect to pay $30 for the kit. it's a 279816 and will take some level of mechanical and technical ability to locate it and affect the repair. This kit addresses 2 issues and should be installed by a certified technician. Your owners manual has a big WARNING!!! block saying what not to do, like Don't use plastic or foil venting. But nobody reads manuals anyway. Most likely you have an aluminum foil colored accordian style vent pipe. That's what caused your thermostats to burn out. Get your drier checked out by a certified tech for safety. Afterwards, keep that vent, clean clean clean and install a sure vent from Whirlpool 4396028. 16,000 homes each year have fires from improperly vented driers according to the U.S. Dept of Consumer Safety.

Bosch axxis WTL lint indicator problem.


I have been struggling with this lint filter problem big-time. After reading the previous user's comment that his mesh holes had become clogged, I took a closer look at my filter and noticed that the tiny holes in the mesh were, indeed, clogged up. In fact, when I initially ran water on the filter it pooled up on the mesh like a solid plate...pretty good sign that air wasn't able to pass through the filter properly.

I used a soft toothbrush and soap to clean the filter, and when I ran water to rinse it off it the water passed right through the mesh. I popped it back in and, voila...That fixed it!!

Dryer is heating but not get clothes dry...


make sure you have a strong air flow from the dryer it self take hose off and run the unit it should force your hand away if not your dryer is stopped up you will have to take fan casing off and clean (the metal going to hole for vent hose) if you do go outside and make sure you vent outside is opening and free of lint also wash your lint filter with warm soapy water fabric sheets stop them up and cause longer drying time

Bosch Dryer lint filer warning


The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.

It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
