Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle
Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent"
Long Drying Times
Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least
1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance
is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle.
If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can
leave stains on the clothing.
Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
Dryer is Noisy
Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
Separate items that are knotted together and restart the
load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer
Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the
dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning
the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs
counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.
Sounds like a problem with the door switch. Open the door and look at the front of the dryer. In the center of the dryer, just under the controll panel, you should see a hole in the machine. On the door it self you should see a stud that will line up with the hole. If the stud is broken off the switch can't be activated and the door must be replaced. If the stud is O.K. then insert a PLASTIC ink pen in the hole while you press start. If the dryer starts either the door is not closing properly or the mount for the door switch is craked inside
suggestions about things they can do to troubleshoot commonproblems.
1 Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen ifthe clothes are not dry after a drying cycle completes. Remove the lint fromthe lint screen and replace the screen. The dryer ought to dry more efficientlyafter the lint screen is cleaned.
2 Open your home's breaker box if the dryer is notturning on or no indicator lights are visible on the front panel. If theswitches for the dryer in the breaker box are flipped to "Off," flipthe switches over to the "On" position.
3 Remove some of the clothing in the dryer or drysmaller loads if you notice that the clothing is wrinkled when you finishdrying a load. Larger loads cause the clothing to wrap around one another whendrying, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles.
Pull the dryer unit away from the wall and checkon the position and arrangement of the exhaust vent. An exhaust vent that ispinched between the wall and the appliance or an exhaust vent that is kinkedcan't allow air to flow through it properly, making it difficult for theappliance to dry properly.
Make sure the door is closed if the dryerdoes notrun. Also check to make sure that you hold in the "Start" button forat least a second. Pressing the button for less than a second may not give thethe dryer enough time to recognize the button has been pressed and that itshould start.
Add clothes, close door securely, make sure it latches, select a cycle (timed dry, permanent press, etc.) select a heat setting ( low heat, high heat, or air) a push the start button. You will also want to make sure the lint filter is cleaned between each load. The lint filter will be either on the top of the machine under a little door or inside the machine at the bottom of the front.
If it is whirlpool--Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch.
A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is
not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever
breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you
need a new door switch. if it clicksand clicks when you close the door
then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking
the back of the dryer off. The fuseis an oblong white plastic piece
with 2 wires attached.
Door switch part number 3406109 Thermal fuse part number 3392519
The switch may be bad or just not engaging when the door is closed. To test it you could tape something to the inside of the door right where the door meets the switch and see if it comes on. I did that and it worked. I use it as a temp. fix.
The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.
It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
