Bosch condensation dryer WTL5400UC will not drain

This macine will not drain unless it is elevated 40 inches above the floor. Is this normal? Who would design a dryer that could not be mounted on the floor?

SOURCE: Bosch condensation dryer model WTL5400vc. lint filter alarm

there is a reservoir in the base of the dryer which holds some condensing water prior to the pump pumping it to the holding tank at the top this has a float swith to tell the pump to come on and drain water to top tank this is probably stuck in the on position so the machine thinks it is always full of water and its waiting for you to empty it,you need to remove side panel and remove flost switch to clean, remove condenser and put youre hand in back of unit if its still very wet in there thats the problem should be bone dry at end of cycle.

hope this helps

SOURCE: pump fail

Have you actually checked the pump, normally they are just clogged with fluff and residue, they dont fail that often. Remove the side panel, the side where the drain container is. You will see the pump assembly at the bottom, remove the screw and top cover, then push the clip in to remove the pump unit, after removing the wiring plugs, the pump can be stripped and cleaned, clean the water chamber also which will be clogged. Hopefully it will work fine.

SOURCE: have a Bosch logixx condenser dryer. key sign on screen

You have activated the child lock, basically you have held the start button for over 3 secs. turn the dryer to the cycle you want and keep your finger on ther start button to deactivate. If this doesn't work you may have a module problem. Double check your manual for child lock info. if no module go to link and enter you Enr number.

SOURCE: BOSCH DRYER #WTL5400UC Thanks Gentlemen, All power

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what I've read of your post...I'd suspect the hi-limit thermostat is tripped if it is indeed a WTL series Bosch.


I'm not clear as to whether or not you located the hi-limit safety, reset it, or ruled it out so I'm going to explain what to look for and what to do when you get there.

**Unplug the unit from the wall or switch off the breaker...safety first**

Once the dryer has been disconnected from any power, remove the rear panel...

i.e.

7209371.jpg
Once the panel has successfully been removed, you'll see the heater with the Hi-Limit and NTC attached. The Hi-limit is the thermostat with the red button in the center...

i.e.

03efa1a.jpg
push it in to reset it. As you can see by the images I've provided, if you have a multi-meter or ohm meter you can verify the proper values of the listed components.

If the hi-limit is tripped, obviously something triggered it, you can check the possible culprits such as the NTC's or heater with the info I provided above as I alluded to.

( Even so, I'd suggest running it through a cycle or two and monitor it's performance, it may have tripped simply due to poor air flow from a large load etc. and therefore nothing is actually wrong...human error )

You may run the dryer momentarily without the rear panel in place provided nothing electrical has been disconnected, don't attempt an entire cycle, just witness the heater functioning, but it isn't recommended for much longer than a minute or two.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and please let me know what you find out or if you indeed require further assistance. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi, welcome to FixYa. Have you checked the hi-limit cut out ? The hi-limit is a manual reset type, but it enclosed in the heater cover assembly

The drain hose for the dishwasher needs to exit above the 'P' trap. You also need to elevate the drain hose approx 32 inched up from the floor to create a drop for the water to exit.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Cutting to the point here, I will tell you that this is a problem just waiting to happen. Even if you could get it to pump the water that distance you going to have longer than normal drain cycles and will get Suds or drain out errors repeatedly. As a good rule of thumb... if the drain has to be higher than the cabinet your asking for problems. The manual can be found here:

Make sure to read the warnings and notes in the manual above.

Water leaking


the bottom tray/salad compartment will always get a fair amount of condensation because they are glossy plastic(bathroom paint is matt)the only "cure" is kitchen towel under the tray and remove once a week.as for the drain it is normally at the back and does collect a fair amount of "moss"in the tube,pour some clorine bleach down to clear any out.the design of the shelves directs the side/back condensation down the drain.

I recently had an ventless Bosch dryer installed (WTE8600US) and I keep receiving this message F:03 which the manual says "check hose for condensation outlet". any advice?


For the F:03 problem on the Bosch Axxis (WTE86300US) do all the things mentioned in Solution #1 above. Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back)can be quite stuck. Use a pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. However there is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual or in Solution #1. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place. This should fix your problem.

Bosch WVF 2402 Washer Drier Steam Problem


Hello All

Problem solved by clearing out the condensate container which on inspection was full of dried up fluff and dead tissues! This is not a ****that is mentioned in the manual and access to the bin is pretty tricky so I suspect there are lots of machines out there with the same problem waiting to happen.

Access was gained by taking the top of the machine off, removing the dryer motor and then scraping out the muck using a wire coathanger and a vacuum cleaner.

Many thanks
