Bosch Axxis WTL 5400 Electric Condensation Dryer...Lint Filter Light

Dryer stops before clothes are dry, lint filter light comes on. Cleaned all parts and used vinegar on drums as recommended in manual. This worked for for a while, but now it doesn't. Dryer starts and stops before clothes are dry.

Re: Bosch Axxis WTL 5400 Electric Condensation...

I had the same problem with the lint alarm going off all the time; replaced the gasket and bought a new lint filter but neither helped. Finally I took a flashlight and inspected the back of the inside of ththe drum and noticed a little bit of lint in some of the little holes back there. I took some tweezers and extracted about half a thimble full of lint, and the dryer has worked like a charm ever since.

Dryer not starting

Check your lint filter first, and then try to restart it. Also, make sure the door is completely shut. If this doesn't do it, check your condensation hose for blockage. These dryers are very sensitive to lint build up, so make sure to change your lint trap after each load. It's not only a good practice, but it's necessary with this machine

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

Bosch Axxis Starts and stops

The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?

Water builds up behind heat exchanger

I don't know if there is a cure for this. Bosch never answers my calls or my e-mails, but I have found that by blowing in the hose to disengage the lint collecting there and then sucking out the line will remove nearly all of the build up amd drying will resume.

Bosch WTL5400 Condensation Dryer

We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.
