Bosch dryer beeps

Two Beeps on my Bosch WTE84100au Condensing Dryer means a thermal overload but also means one of the thermal sensors is faulty .... as if it is always on.
Open the door, pull out the lint catcher and clean around the silver probe (it's like a shiny 1/8" nail sticking into the cavity below the lint catcher). If it still doesn't work (and still 2 beeps), just flick it lightly a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, flick again from the other direction.

My dryer is not working and only making a buzzing noise when i press the start button

is the buzz more like a growl? if so, you probably have a bad motor. if it is truly a buzz, then try turing your timer to a different cycle. if the problem continues, replace the timer

Dryer lights works, but when the start button is pushed the drum does not spin. the timer shows the minutes counting off, but no spinning. the dryer worked yesterday, but no today. dryer is a duet...

I am having the same problem. Dried towels last night. This morning, I loaded it, turned it on, it did not lock the door or start drying (spinning) but the timer started counting down. I pressed Cancel twice, unplugged it for a few minutes then tried again. Problem still exists. Any suggestions?

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer

whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

frist check the door switch in sure it is working if it is good unplug the dryer remove the back cover where the vent comes out there is a little white fuse with 2 wires on it. it is oblong and most of the tim the 2 wires are blue replace this fuse and your dryer should work fine.

You need to replace or repair the timer control, this is not a faulty motor control unit.

You find parts by entering model number here.

Dryer stopping in middle of cycle but timer continues to run.

oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced

it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish

not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it

( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )

Dryer will not start properly, buzzer operating

more than likely your timer is faulty too much to replace most timers about same price to replace your dryer if not cheaper
