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.

If i am getting e68 error can just the button be replaced


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


The E68 is indicating a push button is stuck,

To investigate further the console would need to be serviced/torn-down. I'd try the suggested test program first though. To answer your question "can just the button be replaced"...
No unfortunately, The buttons are a part of the entire control behind the console/panel. The test I'm going to post is quite long so I'll post it in two parts.
PART 1

FUNCTION TEST SEQUENCE


1. Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control. The buzzer will sound 1 time and "rES" will be shown briefly in the display.


2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 5 turns counterclockwise to the second position from the bottom. Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds.

The control will enter test mode, the buzzer will sound 3 times and all LED's will rapidly flash. After entering the test mode, the cycle selector knob can now be rotated to select the following tests:

Rotate the cycle selector knob clockwise from the starting position:


0 turns: All LED's will flash.


1 turn: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. "H" and the control thermistor reading will toggle back and forth in the display.

SEE Below for remaining test program instructions...

My kenmore 417 94082500 dryer keeps pausing and shutting off with no errors between 5 and 10 min from starting.


Rotate the cycle selector knob three clicks clockwise (3 o'clock position) from the Normal cycle option then press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds. Rotate the cycle selector knob one click counterclockwise (2 o'clock position) and the error code will appear in the digital display as an "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. Post back the error code for further advice.

My dryer won't start, but I think the cycle button won't engage.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The issue might have happened due to a blown fuse or burnt wiring/components on the control board. You'll need to check and replace the fuse and replace it.
Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —ELECTRIC Models:
• The amperage readings are at 240 volts. One line will be 24 amps and the other line will be 21 amps. The neutral line will be at 3 amps. If the above amperages are not present, then the house wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker should be suspect.
• Shorted heating element to housing.
• Incorrect wiring or a wire shorting to ground.
• Drive motor winding shorting to ground.


Please do rate the solution & revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Dryer not working


How do you know the belt is on? Did you take the unit apart? Maybe a connection to the control knob came off. Otherwise:

1) Check the breaker to see if it has been tripped
2) Dryer plugged in
3) dryer door securly closed
4) if your unit is a single knob with various dryer settings, try a different setting (delicate, permanent press, etc)
5) if your unit has a start button, set the knob to the desired setting first, then press start.

Dryer won't run unless I put pressure on the cycle control knob after pressing Start


sounds like you need to replace your timer, or either unplug the machine, an open the head panel an see if any wires are loose in there, changing the timer is an easy job, you should have no problems doing it ......good luck!
