Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...

Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

It could be something as simple as the water drawer is not properly in it's little compartment. Try repositioning it. This video shows how a dryer like yours works:

I have a Bosch Maxx Sensitive WTE84100AU dryer which stops a few minutes after the dryer starts. The dryness lights all turn off. The clothes don't dry.


There is a thermal overload switch behind the back cover. It has overloaded because the big lumps of lint in a) lint basket, b) small vents either side of the vent basket (use a chopstick), c) in the big pull out condenser unit at the front bottom left, and d) reach right to the slot for the condenser unit and scrape all the lint out of the back.

Now you can do the reset - unplug your dryer first. You will need a Torx T15 screwdriver to undo the all screws around the fan & drum cover, then use a thin blade to pop off the back cover. If you don't have a Torx screwdriver, you will have to buy or borrow one - there are just too many screws to use anything else.

I was thinking of drilling a 6mm hole in about the right spot so I can poke a chopstick through to press the reset button. 6607f76a-b20b-43ef-8059-a4858d51d2dd.jpg

My dryer Bosch maxx 7 doesn't work


That is a bad motor. It is overheating and the overload is shutting it down. Check to see if there is lint buildup on the motor. If not, you will need a new motor.

Bosch maxx 7 sensitive dryer wich stops everytime and shows that there is a problem with the reservoir




Technician just solved that annoying problem. My dryer is few months old and without pump, so condensed water is dripping to tank by gravity. During drying cloth is collected on filter and condenser, but some amount of cloth goes into pipes and canals on the bottom of dryer and clogged non-return valve where tank is inserted. Side panel ha has to be removed, canals and valve cleaned. To prevent problem technician suggested condenser and filter cleaning after every use. Valve can be removed from bottom without removing side panel.

Condenser tumble dryer water problem


Took advice...isolated from electricity supply...removed left side panel (side with condenser tank), to access the pump. Cleaned it all out (masses of water and grey lint!) and put it all back together again. Bit fiddly getting the panel back on...no screws left over...result!

All working great now.

Simpler solution maybe...There is a 'trap door' that can be removed, which gives access to the area where the water and lint accumulate.

1) Isolate from electricity supply.
2) Take out the condenser unit at the bottom LHS front of the machine (routine maintenance).
3) Underneath of where the condenser unit usually lives..at the back...reach in and open the 'trap door'. This needs a flat head screwdriver and you must release the two plastic clips holding the trap door.
4) You can now access the area where the water and lint accumulate...which makes the 'float' give a false container full fault.
5) Clean out this water and gunk regularly (once a month)!

Hoping this will avoid taking the side panel off again...
