Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Bosch axxis wtl 5410 dryer takes too long to dry.

At first I thought maybe the heating element but the clothes do actually dry. It takes a few cycles to get the clothes dry. Is there a moisture sensor or something. I noticed a lot of condensation when I opened door to check clothes and sure enough they weren't dry still.

    Where would this thermostat be located, in the back somewhere? I will also try cleaning vent to see. I'll keep you posted thanks.

You should have a cycling thermostat. this is most likely bad or your dryer vent may be clogged. Something is cutting the heat off before it gets hot enough. Both these cause this problem.

    Yes, the cycling thermostat will be attached to the vent housing inside the dryer. This way it can read the air temp coming out of the dryer. Normally they have only two wires, they are round about the size of a nickel and have a oval base with a screw hole out on each lobe of the oval

SOURCE: Our dryer will turn on, but won't actually

I assume it runs and this is from that stance. If it doesn't the motor has to be checked and the power coming in. In fact the dryer can run and still not have the correct power to opperate the heater.

A dryer has to have 2 things to dry clothes. 1 Air supply and exhaust, 2 Heating source. No mater if its a gas dryer or electric these 2 items are what dry the clothes..


A. If the dryer has all of these things it has to be heating and an air flow problem (kinked or dirty dryer duck, motor fan clogged with lint, vent flapper not opening...) is suspect.

B. ELECTRICAL
Assuming you have a volt meter and know how to use it properly.

These are the steps that the power and machine have to take to operate properly

1. power is correct (USA 220V across line and 115v to ground/neut) 2 hot lines with potential between them and a neutral and possible a ground
2 Door switch is closed
3 Timer switch closes and ready s power to heating element through centrifugal switch in the motor circuit after the motor is running.
4 the heating element is assumed to be good and have 220v at this point. Checking for voltage at the element will assure all before are ok and at least allowing the heater to work.
5 the heating element is controlled by 1 or more thermostats and a safety thermostat. If either of these switches do not close when the dryer is "cool" they are bad. NOTE some dryers could ahve 3 wire thermostats. These can read closed on one set and open on the other. And this is how they should be if good. But tracing the wire diagram will tell which set is closed and when.
6 if you have power, the timer contacts to the motor and the heater (separate circuits usually)are "closed", the motor runs, the cent switch "closes", the temperature operating thermostats are closed, and the heating element is good you have to have heat.

1 Check for 220V power into the dryer. If not check breakers and turn off and on several time pushing them firmly. If this is ok and 220V present step 1 is done. proceed through all steps above.

If these instructions and explanations are foreign to you I recommend you contact a local service person to check the appliance for you. There are several reasons but mostly safety. DO NOT ASSUME THE POWER IS EVER OFF. Like an unloaded gun is the only one ever in an accident, same applies to electric. The only time anyone gets hurt by electric is when the power is off. If the plug isnt in your hands and you cant see the knives its assumed hot til checked. even with a breaker thrown still check it.

If this helped you in some way please send me a good report. Thank you for using fix ya.

Wte 86300US/05 dryer is not drying clothes shows f.03


This code indicates a problem with the dryer's heating system. The code will appear when the heating circuits are broken or when there is an intermittent break in the power source for the dryer. If the heating circuits are working and the power source is steady, you may need to replace the central control board.

Where is reset button?


Remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel) (part that sticks out). Once that panel is off you will now be able to see the heating element and the thermal sensor. the reset button is located on the thermal sensor.

My Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 will turn on and spin but no heat comes out of it. I cleaned the heat exchanger and wiped down the moisture sensors inside the drum, but still can't get heat out of it. I've read...


How long have you had the dryer (is it still under Warranty) and do you have the owner's manual and have you looked in it for a solution?

If not then you can contact the manufacturer on line to pose the problem to them.

There may not be a reset button on it at all. If there isn't then it is more than likely the heating element and you will have to replace it.

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.
