Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer

Auto Selection Knob

The knob spins on the post and will not engage to select a cycle. I had it replaced last year which involved 2 trips from the repair service and the entire circuit board. I am not thrilled with the idea of that again, much less the cost $400. I am tempted to ditch the whole thing and buy a new dryer. There must be defect in the design because I am extremely careful with the knobs and are the solo user. I have called customer service and they have never heard of such a problem. Any ideas

I have the same issue with my Bosch WTA 4400 dryer. What happened was that the knob is weakly designed on the back side and quite a lot of torque is required to turn the selector unit. So, over time the plastic fatigued. Replace program dial and it should be fine.

Hello Gigi2deb, well to be honest I haven't heard of this happening either and I have been working on this model since it came out. The issue here is that the cycle selector board sounds like it has moved back. Turn off the power to the dryer, take a putty knife at the lower corner of the facia panel along the outside edge and pry out carefully. Now open the door and if you look up you will see 3 slots, with the putty knife insert there as well and pry out, the panel will lift out at the bottom and you can access the selector.

The dryer heats up and spins without issues. The problem seems to be in the dry cycle selection knob, it used to be a bit stiff when turning it to different cycles. Now, it seems very loose and it only...


Try pulling out the knob and turning the post wth your fingers. You will have to caibrate it yourself. If this does not work, You will have to rplace the control board behind the knob.

The washer will fill up with water but won't complete the cycle or drain. This has happened before, and I would spin the knob a few times and switch the load size selection. It always randomly started


it sounds like a bad timer there....! if after you selected a different load it drained......!

if it didnt drain at all on any mode I would say a bad lid swtich.

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Bosch washer spin only


Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:

1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.

2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:

a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.

I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.

Hope that helps! Tim
