If the dryer is not heating at all or is heating poorly, the problem is probably due to a bad thermal fuse or heating element. The thermal fuse is located close to or on the exhaust duct just inside the rear of the dryer. The fuse is about one inch long. Both the thermal fuse and the heating element are easily checked using an ohm meter or multimeter. They should have continuity and if either component doesn't, that component will have to be replaced. Sure hope this helped and good luck.

My dryer does not dry clothes as fast as it used to - does this mean it is saying goodbye? It is a WTA 3500 vented dryer and is about 12 years old.


No, it might just mean your venting is stopped up with lent. Take the 4" hose off the back of the dryer and take a look up into to venting. If it is all stopped up, you should clean it out all the way through and your dryer just might say "hello" again.

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 :)

WTA 3500 vented dryer, the drum does not spin, have cleaned the air inlet/outlets - what now?


The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

Why does my bosch dryer wta 2910 only blow cold air?


If the exhaust vent tubes have never been removed and thoroughly cleaned in years this will cause the sensor to keep the heat off in your dryer. If clean the moister sensor is at fault
