Bosh Dryer Lint Problem

When your bosh dryer stops working and the lint light filter turns on ,close door and start again.This time push door and hold so that the door is closed more tightly.This time dryer should work.
To fix this ,remove the door then remove hinge bracket .Under the bottom part of the bracket insert plumbing ruber gasket.This will adjust the dryer door,it should close more tightly.
Lint light should not turn on again and dryer should work fine.

Please let me know is this works for you.
Since the adjustments of my dryer door, I have not had any problems.
If you have any questions, just ask.

P.S- I know it may sound weird to do this, but since I had adjusted the door this way, the dryer does not turn off during drying sessions.

Sudden stop

Do you have an error code displayed ? If so what is that. If not the either the door switch is faulty or the control board. More likely to be the door switch but, strange things do happen.Here is the door switch number 134813601. If you need help installing or more info let me know.

Bosch Dryer WTL 5410 UC do nothing after selecting a program and hitting the start button. The only thing that happens is that the Drying light lits and nothing else happens. I have tried to hit start...

Door switch may still be your problem. Mine showed lights as if working when closed but I decided to use a screwdriver and push in switch all the way in. It worked then without door closed. It will stay stuck until you pull it own a bit to release it. Give it a try. The door switch appears to have two switches in it requiring it to be all the way in.

Dryer stopped working, sounds like timer still running

I suspect it is the thermal fuse. Seen here. You will need to determine what caused it to blow. on these machines the blower wheel is notorious for getting loose and causing the element to over heat. This makes the heating element shut down faster and takes a long time to dry the clothes. 7fc125e.jpg

Dryer only shuts off and restarts during cycle

Get a new timer. It is not that expensive and the wiring is fairly simple.

Indesit IC70C Condensor dryer

We experienced a similar problem and corrected it by closing the drying door and then hitting "OPEN" followed by closing. Sometimes we use a tool to release the catch and then close the door. We have not seen this problem return.
