Bosch WTA 3100 Tumble Dryer ON/OFF switch

The on/off switch on my Bosch WTA3100 Tumble Dryer only works when held in. When released the dryer stops. I have had the top off, but can find ** **ne destructive way to release the switch panel, with a possible fix of replacing the on/off switch. Can anyone please help?

The on/off switch is combined with the door release switch in one item - part number 154145 (a little over £20) and my problem was the door interlock bit had failed. The following worked for me :
Plug out, remove top panel, and open door + look up at switch panel - you see 5 slots under the switch panel (the 2 outer ones are mostly covered by the main front panel). Start at either side and work across, using as wide-bladed a screwdriver as will fit across the slot width : put a wood block under blade as a support and lever bottom of panel towards front - each has a plastic pin behind pointing towards the rear, held by a spring clip. Each will pop clear and when all are unclipped you rotate the panel outwards from the bottom edge, taking the timer knob and its drive linkage with it. To get switch out I removed the door and the screws around the main front panel - one is hidden behind a cover plug below the access port (to gain access to bottom screws on main panel, lever the bottom panel outwards along its top edge).

I'm not convinced it's your start switch. If the switch was broken, it wouldn't start at all and the problem wouldn't only exist when released. When the button is pressed in, it takes a second or two for a relay to engage to keep the unit running. If this relay doesn't kick in then when you release the switch the dryer will stop. Consider looking at the starting capacitor and relay.

Looking for manual for the bosch wta 2000 tumble dryer. thank you.


I've made a PDF of the Bosch WTA2000 Tumble Dryer User Manual and (hopefully) it will be available on this link in case anyone else still needs a copy, as the original request above is a bit old now.
It's a leeeettle blurry as I should have used a higher dpi when scanning the pages, but I can't be bothered doing it all again. I think it should be sufficient for purpose anyway.

Where do I find the reset button on the Bosch WTA 3100 tumble dryer?


Hi,

It would be at the rear of the machine. You need to remove the rear cover which is secured by Self-Tapping screws. Cover would be almost circular in shape and the button is in the position 10 o'clock looking from the rear.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Bosch tumble dryer, model wta 4100 , no heat, otherwise all OK


If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.
