Bosch nexxt model gas dryer - screaching noise coming from Bearing shield

I seam to get a screaching sound about 1-5 minutes after a drying cycle is started. Looks like the drum is moving just enough axially (front to back) into the bearing shield assemby to make this noise.

is there a bearing or something that the drum mounts on or in to prevent this axial movement?

Thanks.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.


I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Squeaks from drum area during operation


Hi there!

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.

If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.

If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.

What could be a cause of water leaks from Bosch Nexxt 500 gas dryer?


Since there is no water lines connected to a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 6500 gas dryer, the water leak has to be from excess water from the clothes you are trying to dry. Which is probably more the problem.

Does your washer leave an excessive amount of water in the clothes after the spin cycle?

On my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Electric Dryer keeps shutting off and gives the E-01 error we have check the exhaust air duct on back of the dryer and we have vacuumed the inside bearing shield what else...


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
