SOURCE: lint filter wanring signal

I posted in late December on the lint alarm and what I discovered was a bit alarming. (no pun intended) Lint had been accumulating on and around the heating coils used to dry our clothes. Some of the lint was burnt and the remainder, amounting to a small handful, was caught up in other area's around the lint sensor. After carefully cleaning the heating coils (with a tooth brush) and removing the rest of the lint and successfully putting everything back together, we have not had a lint alarm issue since. (Touch wood). No need to replace the lint sensor or any other parts. It was not that hard to take apart the back and remove the heating coils to clean, but it requires the unit to be unplugged, careful attention to what came off and where it goes back on. After what I found, I will be cleaning the heater coils out once a year. Which then raises the question. Should a person have to do this? The obvious answer is no! But from time to time we buy things that are not what we would expect and do what we need to do to make it work. From what I can tell, lint is getting past the lint filter and ending up where it shouldn't be. Hope this helps any of you that are having the same issue.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Electric Dryer: lint filter light goes on even though it does not need emptying

I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.

So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...

This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

SOURCE: How do you clean the lint filter area?

I hate this dryer overall..but, re: the lint: i purchased a long bristol brush from brookstone that is made for these kind of situations. It kind of looks like a long "rifle" cleaning barrel. it helps alittle. just stil it in the dryer and keep turning the handle and try to collect lint as possible. overall..i hate this damn dryer plus it takes forever to dry approx: 1 1/2 hrs to dry one load. my bosch washer model wfmc 6400 series sucks also..it shakes constantly throught out the entire wash..and drain cloggs alost.

Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.

Cheers!

What does E:01 on the Bosch Nexxt Premium dryer mean?


Hello Christie, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Bosch dryer, correct ?


Well the E01 error on these machines indicates an air flow problem...specifically (usually) the lint screen, but can be a build up of lint in the venting as well. Start by checking the lint screen.

This from the horses mouth...errr Bosch ;o)

My dryer runs for several minutes, then starts beeping and an error code E: 01 is displayed. I've tried unplugging it for 30 minutes, but that was no help. Any ideas?


Hello,

This means that the dryer is not able to exhaust correctly. Often times this is caused by kinked or blocked vent behind the dryer. If that looks ok, the vent in the wall may need to be cleaned. In this case or in most a professional dryer vent cleaner would be needed to clean the dryer vent.

One last thing you can check is the lint screen. On Bosch dryers the lint filter will become clogged from the dryer sheets. Remove the lint filter and run water through it. If water runs through, the lint filter is good.

I know this unit well and can assists you with any repair related question you have.

Let me know

Dryer runs for approx 30 min. then turns off and lint light flashespush to restart it comes on for 1 second then turns off let it set for 30 min then turns back on Bosch model# wtmc3300us/01 vent was...


our dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

On my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Electric Dryer keeps shutting off and gives the E-01 error we have check the exhaust air duct on back of the dryer and we have vacuumed the inside bearing shield what else...


Motor won't work
Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped.
Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows.
Wire harness failed.
Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness.
Display shows "E:01" during drying.
Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked.
Air leaking past felt drum seal.
Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet).
Clean out filter, air duct and air damper.
Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly).
Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area

Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer, E:01 and lint light flashing. nothing is stuck in the door.


Hi,
This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.
Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Bosch dryer lint light flashes


My Bosch Nexxt electric dryer had the same problem with the lint filter light blinking and the dryer not running. It turned out that the door switch was not engaging. The service technician informed me that there is a plastic tab (available only by opening the top access panel) that was not fully snapped in place. When he snapped the tab back in place and then secured it with a screw, the door switch fully engaged, the lint filter light went out, and the dryer ran perfectly! I hope that helps you!
