My Bosch Nexxt electric dryer had the same problem with the lint filter light blinking and the dryer not running. It turned out that the door switch was not engaging. The service technician informed me that there is a plastic tab (available only by opening the top access panel) that was not fully snapped in place. When he snapped the tab back in place and then secured it with a screw, the door switch fully engaged, the lint filter light went out, and the dryer ran perfectly! I hope that helps you!

The problem may be with air flow through the lint filter screen. The filter is a fine screen and even though it appears to be lint free, it may not be. Spray the screen with a degreaser, use a soft brush to gently scrub it, and rinse under running water. This may solve your problem.
Ensure that the dryer's power supply cord is firmly plugged into an electrical outlet. 2
Inspect the structure's fuse box for a tripped fuse. Each fuse is assigned a single "On/Off" switch. If any fuse switch is in the "Off" position, flip that switch to the "On" position. If the problem persists, contact a professional electrician.
Press the "Start/Stop" button on the left side of the dryer's control panel. 4
Close the dryer door firmly so that the door clicks into place. The dryer will not operate if the door is not shut. Lint Filter 5
Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull the lint filter out of the dryer. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then reinsert the filter and close the door. 6
Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction. 7
Increase the ventilation of the room the dryer is located in, such as by opening a door or window. Excessive heat will cause the dryer to automatically turn off until it cools as a safety measure. Increasing the ventilation will help keep the dryer cool. Clothing Not Fully Dry 8
Clean the moisture sensor. Open the dryer door to access the moisture sensor. The black-colored sensor consists of two bars, and is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, to the left of the lint filter. The sensor should be cleaned with a clean cloth and white vinegar once per month. 9
Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull out the lint filter. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then insert the filter back into the dryer and close the door. 10
Spin the laundry at a higher spin speed in the washing machine before placing the laundry into the dryer to reduce the moisture content. 11
Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes to pass for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.
Your exhaust vent pipe could be getting restricted. Make sure it is clean and free flowing.Make sure your screen is clean, and also the ventilation port in it leading to the screen. The port could also be restricted.
Motor won't work Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped. Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows. Wire harness failed. Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness. Display shows "E:01" during drying. Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked. Air leaking past felt drum seal. Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet). Clean out filter, air duct and air damper. Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly). Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area
There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.
This is a common complaint with this dryer.The probe generating this problem,is at fault.It likely has a film on it,from the dryer sheets.Remove the lint screen,and wipe down the probe that sticks into the air box.Should fix the problem,if not ,replace the probe.
The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?
The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.
It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
