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.

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.

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.

Can this be installed over an island?


Bring a focal point to your kitchen by having an island range hood, combining function and elegant form. A suspended hood is also an efficient way to vent
grease, odors and smoke to the outside from a island stovetop while you cook. You can install an island range hood in just a few hours with the right tools
and knowledge.
1.Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Turn off the electricity to your kitchen at the circuit panel. Cover the circuit breaker with a piece of electrical
tape to prevent people from turning the on switch while you are at work.
2.Lay work drop cloths on your cooktop and floor to catch dust and debris. Mark the duct opening with a pencil in the ceiling, where the island hood will be
installed. Be sure the opening is centered directly above your cooktop. Cut the opening using a hacksaw.
3.Go up to the roof, using a cat's claw and hammer to remove stucco, tiles, sheathing and insulation to make way for the steel venting duct. Drop a
plumb bob down the roof, making sure the line is straight down for the ductwork.
4.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for locations, installing 2-by-2 wooden blocks in the ceiling to hold the ductwork hangers.
5.Install the venting duct from the outside of the home, down to the location of the exhaust vents on the island hood. The ducts should easily slip into each
other. Secure all the duct sections with duct sealing putty, using a putty knife.
6.Screw a roof cap on the end of the duct at the roof. Seal any openings or gaps where the roof, ceiling and duct meet with silicon sealant. Let the sealant
dry, then paint with colors matched to the surrounds.
7.Place your hood upside-down on the floor, with the fan and filter facing upward. Locate and unscrew the metal electrical box cover on the island range
hood, to expose the wiring
8.Install the hood cover to the load-bearing ceiling frame with the package hardware through the four inside mounting corner flanges on the cover.
9.Measure what will be the distance from the bottom of your hood to the cooktop; it should not exceed 30 inches for exhaust efficiency. Have a helper hold
the hood in place while you attach the hood on the hood cover using the included screws. Use a level be sure the hood is level as mounted.
10.Connect the electrical wiring by consulting the manufacturer's suggestions or hire an electrician if you are not familiar with house wiring. Tuck the wires neatly in the hood electrical box and then replace the cover, after connecting the hood wires to the wall wiring.
11.Remove the electrical tape on the circuit breaker, turn on the electricity to your kitchen and test your island range hood.

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
e05e4038970ae97c (most of them look like this). Change it and put the dryer cover back on, plug it in and your ready to rock and roll.

Hope this helps

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?
