My Bosch dryer never seems to get very warm.It's an Axxis. I've only washed about 10 loads. It seems to take a long time, and when I take the clothes out, they are cool to the touch. Even when I touch the...
There are a few possibilities here:
1. Washer/dryers generally take longer to dry clothes than a stand-alone dryer so if you previously had a stand-alone and are now using a combi, this could be the reason.
2. There are usually at least 2 heat settings on a dryer, so maybe you have it on a cool setting?
3. The last part of a drying cycle (5-10 minutes) is usually cool - even when on a high setting. This helps to reduce creasing and cools metal parts such as zips and buckles for saftey. This could explain why everything feels cool when you remove the clothes.
It's possible your old dryer didn't have the cool final setting and/or it was higher power than your new Bosch and therefore dried the clothes quicker.
If your new machine is taking an eternity and your clothes still aren't properly dry, then there may be a fault with your dryer thermostat which is switching the heating coil/element off at too low a temperature. However, I suspect your problem is related to information I've written above.
It would help to know whether you have an Axxis washer/dryer or just a dryer. If the information above doesn't help you to solve your problem, please post back with details of your machine, including the model number, if possible.
