Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Access to Light Bulb

Bulb needs changing...

Interrior access looks somewhat straightforward, but thought I'd ask the question.

Especially since it's a moisture sealed area -- and were talking about an electric light bulb.

Tips / Warnings appreciated.

You have to pull the facia above the door to access the lamp. Between the frame and cabinet on the sides insert a putty knife an pry out, the open the door, insert the putty knife under the panel and pry out. Now remove the torx 20 screw to remove the cover to access the 230volt lamp. You will need to order it from Bosch.

How do I change the light in gas dryer

there is likely an access spot on the back of the dryer that allows you to change the bulb without taking the entire dryer apart. the most you may need to do is remove the back panel of the dryer to access the light socket. it should either pop out with a clip or twist out 1/4 turn like the headlamps of most cars then you can replace it with a high temp appliance bulb as they last longer than standard bulbs

Dryer light bulb burned out

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Most thermosats on dryers are set to certain tempurature. When the dryer is cold the contacts in the thermostat should be closed. Remove the wires from the theromstat. If you have access to voltmeter, use the ohm setting and put a probe from the voltmeter to each of the wire contacts on the thermostat. If the thermostat is good it should give a small numerical value. If the thermostat is bad the reading will be "0". If you dont have access to a volt meter you can make a battery tester with a 9v battery, a 6v light bulb and a couple of pieces of wire. Tape the wire to the battery, then wrap the other end of the wire to light bulb and tape it in place. To test, put one wire to one side of the thermostat and then touch the base of the light to the other. If the bulb lights the thermostat is good. Make sure the dyre is unplugged.
You might check to see if your getting a full 220v from the breaker. This would take a voltmeter. Each leg to the 220v should be 120v. You can check that where the dryer chord bolts into the back of the dryer. Put one lead to the metal frame and the other to the black or white lead, each should read 115v to 120v. Be carful to not let your hands touch the leads.

You might have a hot surface ignitor that if broken can fall off and be somewhat difficult to locate by sight having never replaced one before.
Look at the new parts base as thats all you may have showing.
The ignitor regarless of type is very close to the gas manifold temination
going into the combustion compartment.
Replacing the new ignitor BE CAREFUL not to touch or bump the ignitors surface or it may fry out before you leave! they break easily!
I would use magnetic nutdrivers, its either 1/4 or 5/16 inch on most everything, very handy for furnace and AC work too

I had a bulb burn out on the same model.
take the screw out..grab the bottom of the plastic cover and pull straight down.
It fights you, but it'll come off with a little effort.
Putting it back on and lining up the screw hole is fun also.

Replacing light bulb on dryer

Light is located just above the door on the inside of the drum. It has a clear plastic lens on it. The lens has a hinge on the top and a retention feature on the bottom. You can see all of this with a mirror. Simply push the button up and the lens will swing up. You can then access the light bulb.
