Question about Bosch Dryers
I reset it and works fine for a while. In about a few drying cycles it trips again. The vent ducting is clean and I always clean the lint trap. Any help would be apriciated. Thanks in advance.

Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Lint Trap in dryer
ngfam1 At your service!
You said, lint is collecting by vent located outdoors. And you feel, the lint trip isn't working.
and you feel very concerned that this is a fire hazard.
We do clean the lint trip off before every dryer run.
The fact that lint is clogging your outside vent does not mean the dryer is not working properly!
The dryers with the top mount lint screens have blow by lint to the outside.
My next dryer will be a Speed Queen dryer which has the lint screen inside the dryer by the door and works better , without the mess on top of the dryer every time I remove it to clean before each load!
That top filter is an old style design!
The outside screen is to keep small animals out!
I find the new plastic outer vents have a plastic mesh screen which caused the same issue as you spoke of and caused my dryer to stop getting hot even though it was only half blocked outside !
I REMOVED the screen and left it off!
And recommend this to all other folks too!
The dryer is too hot for animals to want to enter! They sense it! AND THEY WON'T go in it!!
There are a few types.
1.The old ones are a aluminum vent with a aluminum flap like door that has a spring to keep it closed when the dryer is not on and forcing it open to allow for the exhaust to escape.
2. The newer ones can have a plastic flap that works the same way ,but usually designed without the spring mechanism.
3. the newest one are the ones with the plastic mesh screen that I spoke of above!
Remove the pop off plastic screen and leave it off!
Or if you have the flap door kind.
Change the vent to the open one that comes with the plastic pop on mesh and do not put the screen on!!
It's been years that mine is off and it's all is fine.
You will be fine
Bless You ,
Please give me the best rating for this solved solution!

Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.
