Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer
The lint indicator signal keeps beeping. I cleaned the lint filter, cleaned the heat exchanger, cleaned the interior dryer of lint and water. I'm unsure of where the air inlet is so that I can check it. Everything else is cleaned and it is leaking water from the left side underneath. Pump has been replaced already about 6 months ago. It was found to be defective. Can anyone offer a solution?
I have been struggling with this lint filter problem big-time. After reading the previous user's comment that his mesh holes had become clogged, I took a closer look at my filter and noticed that the tiny holes in the mesh were, indeed, clogged up. In fact, when I initially ran water on the filter it pooled up on the mesh like a solid plate...pretty good sign that air wasn't able to pass through the filter properly.
I used a soft toothbrush and soap to clean the filter, and when I ran water to rinse it off it the water passed right through the mesh. I popped it back in and, voila...That fixed it!!

What I found is that I needed to thoroughly clean the dryer filter with soap and water. Over time, the tiny holes in the mesh get clogged and it hinders the air flow. The filter itself should be lily-white, like a pair of white nylons (sorry, best example I could think of.) I estimate it will need this thorough cleaning about once every 6 months or so (more often if you run your machine more than average.)

As one other solution suggested, run water over your filter. If it pools, the filter is clogged (even if it looks fine). I ran some soap over it with a qtip, and seconds later the water was going straight through. And so far, no lint filter alarm!

It may be a sensor fault,most dryer inlets are from the back.if the internal ducts are blocked it can cause this broblem,sometimes the drain hose from the pump can get a hair ball stuck in them.you may have to dismantle the dryer to find the solution.hope this helps.
