I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Most Bosch WTL models to my knowledge has a small drain pump at the back of the bottom base underneath a lip top cover. If you would follow the condensation drain hose after the hose connector, the other end would be attached to the said pump. When you force air back and you hear air bubbling, that would be on the pump that has some water still in it.
Rather than kinks or blockage, pls check for any hairline crack or split on the condensation drain hose.
As to "red light indicating that this container is full" pls check if your "water container at the top" "which pulls out for emptying" has some sort of waterlevel detection (a pair of wire attached to a float mechanism. Otherwise, that red light is not indicating that the top container is full but rather that red light is indicating that the bottom base container is full and that the drain pump is not running. There is a float very near the drain pump that activates it. Having said this, then perhaps what the manual is referring to as "safety container for run-over water" is actually the "water container at the top".
Then it would either be the drain pump or the float switch that would have to be attended to.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!
It worked for me, honest...

could be a switch in there or one of these
This sounds like the thermostats

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail(meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) thatmight need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can tripout or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehaveprograms that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcodeshowing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also bethe fault.

Took advice...isolated from electricity supply...removed left side panel (side with condenser tank), to access the pump. Cleaned it all out (masses of water and grey lint!) and put it all back together again. Bit fiddly getting the panel back on...no screws left over...result!
All working great now.
Simpler solution maybe...There is a 'trap door' that can be removed, which gives access to the area where the water and lint accumulate.
1) Isolate from electricity supply.
2) Take out the condenser unit at the bottom LHS front of the machine (routine maintenance).
3) Underneath of where the condenser unit usually lives..at the back...reach in and open the 'trap door'. This needs a flat head screwdriver and you must release the two plastic clips holding the trap door.
4) You can now access the area where the water and lint accumulate...which makes the 'float' give a false container full fault.
5) Clean out this water and gunk regularly (once a month)!
Hoping this will avoid taking the side panel off again...
