It is probably the electric heater coil. How old is the machine? If a couple of years or more, the coil is probably burnt out. It is accessible through the back. Good luck!

SOURCE: Creda T622CW condenser tumble dryer drum wont turn

You need to check if the belt is o/k.
Remove top cover, and grasp belt, it should be firmly wrapped around drum.
If o/k, then could be a motor problem, or programmer fault
Once you have got the drum turning again, it is possible the filter light will go off,if not, then you have another fault
Hope this helps.

i dont know make of your machine but there has to be a transfer pump somewhere. follow the hose back from the container at the top it will end up at the pump look for blockage or faulty pump.

I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

SOURCE: water tank full (!) in bosch tumble dryer WTE86301gr

As a matter of fact I have solved the problem. The dryer is now fully functioning again. :-)
I'll try to explain how to fix the problem:
The water that condenses in the condensor (doh!) drips down into a container situated below the condensor. The moist air that passes through the condensor is the same air that circulates via the clothes, thus it also contains some lint that the filter doesn't catch. Over time there will be some build-up of lint and mucus (?), clogging the tank AND a sensor that sends a signal to the electronics to start the pump that evacuates the condensed water to the removable tank in the upper part of the machine. This messes up the function of the water evacuation system.
Alright, pull out the condensor and find a hatch in the 'floor' in the farther part of the compartment. Below the hatch you'll find the container that collects the condensed water. Start by cleaning it as thoroughly as you can. There are a few 'nooks and crannies', take your time, also flush with some fresh water and maybe some gentle cleanser to get rid of the mucus. The pump and the sensor for the pump are located in the left part (viewing from front of the machine) of the container. Try to flush there as well.

If this procedure doesn't solve the problem you'll have to disassemble the machine to also be able to remove the pump and sensor housing. I had to do this on mine. Quite a few screws to remove and keep track of, but pretty straight forward if aren't too uncomfortable with 'fixing things'.

I have some pictures of the 'project' somewhere, let me know if you would like to see them or if I may help you some other way.

The full tank light remains on even though the tank is empty. Is there a sensor which stops the dryer from restarting

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.
The tank capacity is about 3.5 lt., enough for a drying cycle.

- Remove the screw (1) which secures the support micro and use a screwdriver for the two hooks which secure it to the sump.

- Lift them simultaneously and unthread the micro support towards outside
Putting upside down the support you can access the floating microswitch.
25069013-hcssld2gpo2sm22yg24xoxcy-3-9.jpg Inside the sump there is the float.
To extract it rotate the float 90° clockwise as shown.
Lift it up, rotate it towards outside and extract it.

While reassembling the pump, the float and the tank microswitch, repeat the same operations backwards, paying attention that when the micro support is remounted it is necessary to use a screwdriver in the fissure (indicated by the arrow), to lift the micro lever and lean it over the float (if this operation is not carried out the lever of the micro comes up alongside the float (it deforms) and the two components do not function anymore.

Hi, My candy CIC60 tumble dryer has stopped drying and the empty water light is constantly on. The timer works. I have cleaned all filter,emptied water, checked for loose wires and I can not see a problem....

Tumble dryers are really not around my neck of the woods however I have studdied them just in case they do begin to show up around here. What turns on the light and kills power to the dryer when the water tank is full? A float switch. I bet that float switch is stuck. Probably something simple like that.

The empty water wanrning light will not go out. I

there is a float switch at the pump that has become stuck, and when this happens, the "empty water" light will stay on and the machine will operate but with no heat. just locate the floating switch and give it a light tap back into its place, this will solve your problem.
should you have any problems you can email me at

Empty water button staying on

Remove lower left filter from dryer, and wash it out under running water. Reach inside the compartment and clean any fluff and gunge you can find there.
Get a plastic bag tie or similar, and feel for and locate a small hole at the rear of compartment, poke it clear with bag tie.
If you are certain that the element and stats are o/k , and it still does not heat and the light stays on, then that indicates that the float switch is stuck or is faulty.
To access this involves stripping the dryer down, not an easy job.
Plz rate my solution.

Water empty light wont go out

the black wire that was moving water from down condenser to up - water container - remove it. Use cotton swabs to "clean" the holes, do a run of the dryer without that black wire connected ( carefull, cause some wated might spill at this point), reattach black wire, and enjoy :)

It worked for me anyway. ( fingers crossed, its been on for 20 mins and still no red lights flashing)

Bosch classixx condenser drier

The problem is with the lower water tank float switch, it is stuck. Take off the right hand side panel (as you are facing the machine) at the bottom you will see a spring mechanism for the belt tension. Beside this there are 2 electrical connectors. Take them off and spray with wd40 or similar. Whilst off give the plastic box they fit 2 a light tap with a hammer to free the float switch. Reconnect and try. If this fails you can over-ride by leaving the left hand of the two plugs off. This will get your machine working but you will not have an indication as to when the water container needs emptying so you will need to remember.

Tank full light stays lit.

Under the water bottle is a drain hole,when the bottle overflows water runs down this hole through a pipe to a reservoir behind the condensor unit, there is a float in this reservoir that rises and clicks a switch that activates the full tank light and stops the machine working,
removing the stopper at the rear and emptying the reservior should do the trick,If the float does not go back down due to dirt in the machine the left hand side panel can be removed by taking off the top then the retaining screws,one inside at the top the rest in the back panel,remove the one screw holding the float switch unit and clean the black float.(Make sure it's not plugged in)
