Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Sealing Cover? I just bought a second-hand dryer and do not have sealing covers for the two ducts I won't be using to vent. I've searched for the part online and have been unsuccessful. The previous owner said he didn't need/use them. Many thanks! Patti

    In the Use and Care Manual for the Electric Vented Dryer, it says in the Installation section (Page 19) , "The duct may be connected to the left, right or back of the WTA 3510 .... remove the sealing cover from the side to be used..." and "The sealing cover should then be placed over the open vent at the back of the dryer ...".

    Many thanks! That's what the previous owner thought, BUT, when I use the dryer now (without the blankout/sealing covers), exhaust is coming out of the unsealed/unblankedout covers and not drying my clothes.



    The previous owner bought the dryer from his brother, an appliance dealer, so I'll call him to figure this out. I just hope it's resolved before Thursday ... when I really need to do some laundry!



    Thank you,

    I didn't duct tape the openings - I used wide packing tape and it seems to be fine. I could only seal one opening though because I couldn't squeeze my hand around the other side.

OK what they are talking about are the blankout covers on the unit so if you vented it out the back the side cover will need to be put on if these are missing it is ok to use the dryer. they are just plastic covers to block off the holes if it really bothers you you can order them from a dealer. but you have to have the dryer vent to somewhere..hopefully outside...

Dryer vent blocked


Dryer vents can block up with lint over time. Remedy is to disconnect dryer from power supply, then disconnect exhaust ducting from the dryer. Sometimes the duct leading to outside air will be plugged. Try using a vacuum cleaner to remove the accumulated lint. Same thing with the dryer. Re-connect the power and give it a test. If there is lot's of air coming out of the dryer, connect the exhaust duct and test again. Check the outside vent to see if there is air coming out. Sometimes there will be a screen under the cover and it will completely block with lint. Lots of people remove the screen.
Hope this helps.

The dryer works fine in TimeDry mode, but in Intellidry mode it dries very slowly. The "Moisture Moniture" indicator lights start and stay at "Less Dry". I have replaced the moisture...


you could have bad gas coils.if the timer doesn't advance in auto dry most likely you're having heat problems,when the dryer heats and then the heat shuts off then the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops,it does this until the clothes are dry.gas coils when starting to fail will work normally until they get hot and then no heat until the coils cool down then they will work again,on time dry the timer just keeps counting down until the time runs out no matter what's happening to the dryer.i've seen the coils fail after the first 10 minutes and other times for 20 to 30 minutes but usually if the load is big and in time dry the clothes will feel warm and you'll need to dry them a second time to get them fully dry,also while you're in ther you should clean out the dryer at least once a year,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vacuum out the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,remove it from the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out,i've blown out birds nest out of some lines, your clothes will dry on time,you won't go through so many parts and you won't have to worry about a dryer fire,the gas coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,lift off the cover and change out the coils.next time you use the dryer keep an eye on it,after it runs for 20 minutws start checking it,you'll hear a click,then another click and the flame will lite,look into the gas tube and if the flame isn't liting then you have bad gas coils.

The heat goes on temporarily and then shuts off


The most common problem is a clogged vent.

To do this, unplug your dryer and move the dryer out enough so you can get to the dryer duct easily. Most dryer ducting is flexible like a big slinky with a vinyl(older style no longer used) or metal type covering. There are some that are rigid as well.

Remove the duct from the dryer and where it attaches to the wall. Use a shop vac or house vac with attachments and insert through the wall and vacuum as much as you can. I use a shop vac since it has the blowing capability and I can check if air is coming out of the dryer vent located outside after I vacuumed it out. It is good to get confirmation that air is coming out of the vent. Check the dryer where the duct was attached and vacuum anything that is in there. Put everything back in reverse order and give it a whirl.

There are some homes,condos,and apts the have the hidden ducting go up the wall and through the roof. If this is the case, you will need to go on top of the roof and find the vent pipe. This pipe will have some sort of cap on it to let the hot air out but keep other elements out. Since you mentioned the heat goes on for a bit, have someone go on the roof (use caution) and have someone else turn on the dryer. The person on the roof can check the vent pipes with his hand for heat.

How do you side vent the Kenmore 800 dryer? I cannot rear vent the dryer due to space limitations. I MUST side vent.


You will need to take the dryer apart, pull the drum out. Then at the bottom you will see the main discharge, take it off and insert a 45 degree elbow, you will need to then install hard venting to reach the knock out on the side. Be sure to use metal duct tape when sealing the venting to avaoid fire haz.

Takes 1-2 hours to dry a load of towels. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to improve this problem? Filter is clean. Vent pipe is clear.


Open the door and shine a flashlight at the back of the drum, you should see a grouping of holes about the size to stick a pencil through. Do you see lint covering some of the holes? If you do, unplug the dryer, take the back panel off (1/4" screws) and there will be a black duct on the left hand side behind the panel, remove the duct and you will see the holes this time from the back, and you can remove the lint, while you are there, clean the lint from the duct and the blower assembly at the bottom of the duct. If you don't see lint upon initial inspection it could be a weak or burnt heating element, you can access the elements the same way, but instead of the black duct they are under a black cover on the right hand side. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG ANY APPLIANCE BEFORE REMOVING ANY SERVICE COVERS!!!!

How do I clean the lint out of the Kenmore Eite He3 past the lint screen?


Remove lint screen. Remove bottom front kick panel (usually three to four screws on very bottom front), There is a metal lint filter air duct assembly that has three to four screws holding it on. Usually one on each upper side of the duct, and one that has a bent metal bracket holding the bottom to the blower housing. This metal duct is dead center in the dryer under the door and ducts over to the bottom left. Remove the screws and pull the duct down and out. You can now clean this assembly. Needless to say, always unglug the dryer or turn it off at the circuit breaker before doing this job. I recommend that you do this at least once a year on the dryer, and clean out the washer lint and coin catcher at least once a year. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Dryer won't heat. Motor turns tumbler. Tried


Heres what you'll need to do.

First pull out your lint trap and place your hand down in the lint trap hole not very far just enough to feel a good amount of air blowing on your hand. If you feel no breeze in there you need to clean the ducting, starting at the back of the dryer (where you hook it up at) and ending out side your house (where vents at). Snake it your self or have someone do it but just the same it has to be done.

Secondly you'll need to change you thermal fuse. If after snaking the dryer still doesn't heat. Changing the thermal fuse is easily done. Firstly you must unplug the dryer and then remove the cover off of the back of the dryer. Then you'll see the thermal fuse
