I had the same trouble after moving to a new house, I first thought I had a voltage problem. It turns out that the heating coil has a high temp re-setable switch in side the back - lower right side. the sencor has 2 screws, I took it out and cleaned off the lint and now have dryed 5 loads with 0 issues. looks like a flaw in design that would allow lint to get in the heating coils!!!!! I think I'm going to look for a new dryer before I burn down the house!!

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but based on your post it is most likely the emergency shut off/belt switch. It is located by the motor and in the event of too heavy a load or a broken belt it shuts the unit down & prevents any restart...until it is repaired or reset. To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention what to do about it. **Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here first** This will require you to remove the back panel. Once you've remove the rear panel, It is located next to the belt pulley and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back ) Let me know if you require further assistance to do this. Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear. I'm presently on my iphone, but I can post more info with pictures to guide you if necessary...but please let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

My Whirlpool Duet DRYER--the clothes are wetter than when I put them in & there is now water sitting in the bottom. It does have a steam setting, but I'm not using that one. It's 4 years old.

Check your exhaust vent! If you have an obstruction, the steamy air will have no where to go, then your air-conditioning temps inside can cause the water to condense in the vent tube... Even if the vent is just open to the hot summer air and the clothes sit in the machine the difference in temps between inside and outside can cause these symptoms...

My dryer will not dry effectively, it is very slow to dry even on the high heat settings, any ideas?

i looked up your model number and you have a gas dryer not electric,if the vent line is clear and the metal duct that the lint filter slides into is clean i would say you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils go bad they will work correctly for the first 15 to 30 minutes,when they heat up they fail and the flame won't ignite,so do this remove the screws that hold the bottom panel on,remove the panel and vac out any lint you see,if you have a shop vac you can set the vac up to blow and blow off the motor and blow all the lint forwards and vac it up,do this with the dryer unplugged,remove the lint filter and take out the screws that hold the metal duct in place and clean the duct out,put it back together except for the screws that hold the bottom panel in place but just stick the panel in place,put some clothes in and start the dryer,after around 20 or 30 minutes remove the bottom panel so you can see the ignitor,if the ignitor glows orange but the flame doesn't ignite and the ignitor goes out then you have bad gas should take the bottom panel off and remove the lint filter duct and blow and vac it out once a year,also if you vent line is long remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent like a cage or a piece of screen so the lint can blow out and not get blocked.the part number for the coils is 279834 and they are around 25 dollars,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,remove the two phillips head screws,remove the cover,slide the coil up and off of the post,unplug the wire and connect it to the new coil,watch out on the big coil,there's a spacer that has to stay on the post,sometimes it gets stuck in the old coil when you remove it,let me know how you make out.

could have bad gas coils? part 279834 they're located on the top of the gas valve unplug dryer,remove the two pillips screws,lift up the cover and change out the coils,watch out on the three prong coil there's a spacer that you want to stay on the post so when you slide the new coil on the coil it's tight,if the spacer isn't on the post after you remove the old coil look in the old coil and stick anything that will fit and push out the spacer then slide it back on post then install your new coils.also while you're in there get a shop vac and vac up all the lint you see,remove the lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides down into and clean that,then set the vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and vac that up,make sure you blow the motor off and the gas tube and parts,you should do this at least once a year with gas so you don't have a fire,then go outside and make sure the duct is clear no cages or anything on it,go back inside and remove the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run you can stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.if you need anymore help let me know.

Bosch nexxt 500 series dryer producing intermittent gas smell when running. wife says the smell has even permeated the clothes a time or two, but I haven't noticed it. heat exchage box? if so, how hard...

A few things to check...

First, check that the dryer vent is not clogged. You'll have to go outside to check. If you are not sure of a clog, disconnect from inside and have your wife hold a flashlight by the vent, then go outside to see if you can see it. This will also cause laundry to dry slower than it used to (your wife may have a feeling if this is the case).

Second, make sure you don't have negative pressure in the house (large house fans are good for cooling but move too much air out so the dryer cannot vent its exhaust gasses well). You can check by opening an exterior door about an inch and check if it swings open with a gush of wind. Even houses without whole-house fans can do this if you have enough bathroom fans and furnace fans going.

Third, If it is a smell of natural gas, then you should call a service technician because the valve is not opening/closing correctly (or fast enough) if you have a pilot-less starter.

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

you will need to clean out or replace the vent line as you clothes will not dry if there is a restriction in the line.
