Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Lint filter going off after 5 minutes then shutdown

This is a condensation dryer(NO VENT). Is this lint filter sensor the one that is in the bottom of the vent holes(towards heat exchanger) that looks like a metal probe sticking up as you look into the front of the dryer? How about disabling this?

Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps

As one other solution suggested, run water over your filter. If it pools, the filter is clogged (even if it looks fine). I ran some soap over it with a qtip, and seconds later the water was going straight through. And so far, no lint filter alarm!

Dryer LG 1100 shuts off after a few minutes. If you set it for 54 minutes, you check if after 5 minutes it reads 14 minthen in 5 minutes it starts cooling down. The clothes are still wet.


Clean your lint filter, and clean the entire line vent from the dryer to the outside export port, also look inside the dryer vent hook up for obstructions and remove any lint. Keeping these parts lint free will save you energy and also drying time and maintenance repairs. My dryer is 18 years old.

Clean the Lint Filter or Condenser


check inside it may have a lot of lint build up in it, check the vent to outside and be sure there is no sharp bend in vent pipe to make it over heat. the straighter the better !

My dryer will not dry my clothes what should i do to fix this problem. It takes 3 cycles to dry a load completly


if its a condenser dryer make sure the condenser itself is not blocked up ( usually located at bottom of dryer, looks like a metal box). clear any lint build up and u can also flush it through with water. obviously check the filter also.

if a vented dryer make sure the vent hose not kinked or blocked, check the actual vent outside on your wall as wel. sometimes if wrong vent fitted ie one with wire mesh meant for extracter fan, can be blocked up with lint

Turn dryer on and it starts to heat up and then the heat stops and within about 2-3 minutes will start to heat up and then the heating up stops.


Clean out the exhaust vent tubing really good.. A moister sensor will detect any build up of lint and shut the heat off

Mdg5500aww lp gas dryer heating problem it fires once but dosent burn long clothes dont dry help


When a gas dryer starts and the burner does not stay lit more than one minute the flame sensor is not detecting the flame to as a by design safety feature the burner is automatically shut off. It is not sensing flame so it is shut off.

This is the most likely suspect. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg5500aww-%3d%3di2681&PartID=2681

BEFORE you change this part make sure that the outside vent flapper and the ducting form the back of the dryer is free of lint. Disconnect the dryer vent and try it with nothing connected to the dryer. Also check around the lint filter area for lint especially in the bottom. If there is not a lint or ducting problem then by all means change the flame sensor.

Thanks for using FixYa!

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 Nexxt 800 series dryer E01 error


My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.

Lint Filter


hi there,

i can understand your frustration. i have reviewed the information that i have from Bosch and they indicate that the lint filter indicator light should only come on as a reminder but should not shut off the dryer.

here is my recommendation and also a question:

the dryer is shutting off due to the fact that it's overheating. it's a safety precaution from the manufacturer and it's built in to prevent the lint collected in the lint filter, since it's highly flammable.

check the venting in the back or side, wherever it was installed.
the vent tube is often the cause for the dyer to stop functioning.
if that turns out to be okay, the dyer is equiped with a sensor on the heater. it is possible that it's opening due to the heat generated by the dryer that has nowhere to go.

does the display show any error messages?

can you tell me what they are?

thanks again

Lint vent


There is no lint filter in this machine, however, the condensing duct and condensing bellows can get be a problem later on if it gets jammed up with too much lint.  If you notice that it takes 50% longer or more to dry your clothes, you will need to have the duct checked and cleared out of excess lint buildup inside.  Not an easy job but it can be done.
