The TDC70080E doesn't have an exhaust vent.
Does the display show any messages? e.g. clean filter?
...and you have cleaned all the various bits but it still cuts out after a few mins of running?
It is most probably the motor which is knackered.
Have a look at this:

A new motor from SEME Nedis (www.allourparts.com) is about £40.

If you can hold a screwdriver and a sokect wrench, you can fit the motor yourself. It's really easy. Just unplug it from the wall first!

Good luck.

You have a plugged exhaust vent in the house wall.  Remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run the dryer.  The problem should go away.  You will need to call a qualified vent cleaning company to remove the lint restrictions inside the wall.

Open the bottom front panel. Remove the heat exchanger. Take notice to see if theres any water in that compartment. Reach your hand towards the back of that opening to see if there is water pooling back there. If theres water present, then your condensation pump needs to be replaced.
also double check the connection of the drain hose from the dryer to the drain.

My BOSCH dryer #WTE86300US keeps stopping in mid cycle and gives the signal F3 which says to check condensation outlet and I have cleaned all the parts and cleaned hose but it will still beep after a few...


I have owned the same dryer for about a year and just started having this F03 problem. The condensation drain hose is the soft flexible rubber hose coming out of the back of the dryer and it drains into the same drain as a washer. It's easy to pull the hose off its connector at the back of the dryer and just blow hard into it to make sure there's no lint clogging the hose and reconnect it to the dryer. Next open the panel on the left of the dryer and thoroughly rinse (water only, no soap) clean the two parts behind the door (first is plastic and behind that is the condensation filter which probably is loaded with lint). Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back) can be quite stuck. Use a long pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. Shake the excess water out of the condensation filter and dry off the outsides of two parts. Clean all the lint out the compartment where the parts go. There is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver or a blunt table knife under the panel and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber that you can't see very well where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Use paper towel to get it all out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place as well as the condensation filter and the plastic part. Take out the lint filter (within the dryer drum compartment) and wash it with soap and water. Use an old toothbrush or something to clean the screens thoroughly. Rinse well and dry it completely. Clean all the lint out of the empty compartment. Put all three parts back into the dryer. Clean all lint off the door. Using paper towel moistened with white vinegar clean the two metal sensors in drum compartment on the front wall and lower left. Run the dryer empty but with heat on for a few minutes to make sure all the water is drained out. Now try drying a load. I think it's a good idea to rinse clean the condensation filter at least once a month since it collects a lot of lint. Hope this works for you.

I think that I have already suggested some possible reasons for the prob you are experiencing with your dryer, but I don't think I have mentioned the fact that the pump could be fauty, you should be able to hear it running, just a thought , you never know.
