Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5400 Dryer

1 Answer

Bosch WTL 5400 running, but not heating

The dryer seems to be fluff drying everything. No heat is coming into the drum. All filters were cleaned thoroughly. Is there anything I can do to attempt to correct the problem before calling in the professionals?

Thanks,
Mey

I've just fixed mine. The heating element at the rear under the covers was broken - crappy design BTW!

Bosch WTL5400 Drier runs fine for 5/10 minutes, then it stops and the "start" light flashes. Pressing this then restarts the process, but a few minutes later it cuts out again. I have checked...


I have the same problem, the dial to select the dry program is making a bad contact causing it to stop. Try using a different program.

I tried to clean the dial but it didn't help.

How to clean the bottom filter


Don't know how old your machine is but on my wtl5400 the bottom flap is opened by:
1. open the drier door
2. note small round button on the lower right hand side of the drum surround
3. press the button which will spring forward then
4. lower filter cover springs off giving acess to filter drawer
NB if the filter is over full the button will spring open itself as a gentle hint
NNB YOU CANNOT CLOSE DOOR WHILE THE BUTTON IS EXTENDED so take care door will only close when lower cover has been correctly replaced relocating the button flush with the front of the machine

Bosch WTL5400 Condensation Dryer


We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.

Filter lamp flashing


The condenser has two "channels" one for the moist hot air that are easy to clean and inspect. The other flow is perpendicular where cool air drawn from outside and passes through. These channels, viewed from the side can get blocked over time with dust/fluff. I blasted mine with a pressure washer and it was obvious from the change in light when looking through it that it was clogged before I blasted it.
