Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

    With the WTE84102GB Bosch the problem is getting the side panel off. To get at the two screws at the top front you need to take all the screws out of the water container housing and move it backwards so you can get to the front 2 screws by lifting (bending) up the plastic front fascia. There's also a screw under the middle of the side panel that needs the drier to be tipped up. I left out that screw and the most awkward front screw for next time! The float can be clipped out of its sleeve and given a good clean to remove scale.

    You were right about the congealed mess in the bottom! You'd think Bosch would make this water reservoir a lot easier to access when it obviously needs to be cleaned out periodically like this. It took me a while to take it all apart and reassemble it, but my tumble dryer is now working perfectly again.

    Many thanks,
    Suzie.

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 small flat head screwdriver and you must also 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...

I have a Bosch Maxx Sensitive WTE84100AU dryer which stops a few minutes after the dryer starts. The dryness lights all turn off. The clothes don't dry.


There is a thermal overload switch behind the back cover. It has overloaded because the big lumps of lint in a) lint basket, b) small vents either side of the vent basket (use a chopstick), c) in the big pull out condenser unit at the front bottom left, and d) reach right to the slot for the condenser unit and scrape all the lint out of the back.

Now you can do the reset - unplug your dryer first. You will need a Torx T15 screwdriver to undo the all screws around the fan & drum cover, then use a thin blade to pop off the back cover. If you don't have a Torx screwdriver, you will have to buy or borrow one - there are just too many screws to use anything else.

I was thinking of drilling a 6mm hole in about the right spot so I can poke a chopstick through to press the reset button. 6607f76a-b20b-43ef-8059-a4858d51d2dd.jpg

Bosch maxx 7 condenser dryer not working after power surge. It starts but doesnt generate any heat, starts beeping and then stops. Was working fine until the power surge.


Most likely, the surge blew the internal fuse. I would try replacing that first. If you can't do it personally, have a certified tech do it for you.

Bosch Condenser Dryer Classixx


I found this on justanswer.com, I am going to try it this weekend and I will post an update.

"Ok if you remove the left hand side panel then located at the back is the drain pump
remove the hose on it which goes up to the bottle and blow up it to make sure its clear.
If thats fine then remove the pump and clear any fluff thats in there and make sure the impeller is ok and turning fine.
Then refit and try again hopefully this should sort it out.
let me know if you need anymore info."

I have a Bosch Maxx condenser tumble dryer that wont work.


Have you taken the condenser itself out from the bottom of the machine? Remove the condenser from the bottom door and rotate the clamp tags which secure it in. Slide condenser out (aluminium mutli-finned box assembly) and carefully take it outside. Use a garden hose with lots of water pressure to spray each vent passage carefully to clear lint and dust away. Passages must be cleared in both directions, long ways and cross ways. Cross ways is the problem area and once you finish clearing the air ways you should see daylight through the condenser easily. Reassemble and always clear lint filter in the door /drum area.
Good luck.

Bosch tumble dryer


I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.
