Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

2 Answers

Brand new Bosch 500 Plus series dryer: If I run it with nothing in it for 20 minutes it is OK. Once I put clothes from the New Bosche matching washer it will run for about 4-5 minutes then gives a E01 error code. I reset like instructions say but to no avail. The home is less than a year old but I had the vent system cleaner (no real issues here, and a four way roof vent installed vs. a one way that was there but once I put the clothes in it will now run for about 8 minutes then I get the same E01 error. The dryer vent run is well under the lengthe mentioned in the handbook, however it does go from the ground floor up to the roof (common in Florida)which is about a 16 foot run. Any suggestions? I purchased from Lowes and they are coming today to replace the unit but I am not sure that this is the answer. Fred

The venting formula is a little differant than it sounds, each 90% turn is the same as 10' of straight duct, and each 45% is 5' feet of straight. If you want to check to see if it is a vent issue run a full load without the vent hooked to the dryer, if it runs fine then you know it is a vent issue. I would try this before they come to get it just to be sure & if it works than you will need to re rout the ducting to go out the side of the home or get a different dryer. The GE topload dryer M# DPGT650E/GHWW has two motors, one for turning the drum and the second just for pushing long duct runs, this would be the easy fix, Best of luck

E01 error, which mean that the door is not latching properly.

Resolve it by holding the door for a few seconds while the wash cycle starts, it this work means it's sure a door latch problem.

Post further comments for more information.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Did you check this FIXYA LINK below? Appears to have lot's of answers!

Also I WATCHED the YOUTUBE video I recommended and NOTICED his DRIVE BELT is WAY too loose! Methinks THAT is why his dryer has problems!

Be SURE your belt is not to aged because they can STRETCH and then TRIP the "RESET SWITCH" he's talking about. Note the way his PULLEY shakes so violently... AND the action of the belt itself...
