    thx. for your respond...
    even if I set the dryer up for 30-40 min. drying cycle, when I open the unit after, cloths are still semi-wet and only a little warmth emits from the dryers cylinder, what I.m thinking, the unit never turns on full power of 2700 watts. the cloths are only slightly warm...

Zuraxus what you are seeing is normal for a time. Here is how this dryer works. With a wet towel in the dryer, the first 5 minutes is testing to see if the load is wet. If so then between 5 & 10 minutes the dryer will turn on the 800 watt heater section (only in clockwise rotation). If still wet enough from 10 minutes to 15 minutes it will turn on the 1900 watt heater (heating only in clockwise). If still wet enough 15 to dry will turn on the full 2700 watts in clockwise and 800 watts in counter clock wise. That is how the cycle works. However it is hard to tell with the rear cover removed as the blower pushes the air thru the heater. Careful that by running with the back panel off you don't trip the high temp manual reset protector. So yes this sounds normal. What is the issue that is causing you to think the dryer isn't working proper?

    Hello Zuraxus, on the time dry cycle only the 800watt section of the heater is in operation. The auto dry cycle is the one I described above. Only the auto dry uses the full heater if there is enough moisture in the clothes. So try the extra dry cottons to see if this drys better. Also wash the lint filter to see if it will help.

The dryer runs but does not heat up


Depending on your heat source (gas or electric), your problem could be one of the following:

* if electric: heat element, thermostat or timer

* if gas: gas coils, radiant sensor, thermostat or timer

Note: In either case, check to ensure that the dryer is receiving the proper amount of electricity (110 volts for gas & 208-220 volts for electricity).

My Bosch Axxis electric dryer Mod. # WTA3510UC 82/IV takes a few cycles to dry if it dries completely. The laundry doesn't seem to get warm no matter the setting. Have checked exhaust, cleared lint from...


i would check the actual electrical connections, to both the unit, and the downline connections to that actual element itself, its unusual for an elemnt to only go a lilttle bit... it works or it doesn't...
since you seemed to be very knowlegable, ohm
out the element as well as your plug and outlet
ther emay be a loose connection somewhere

Dryer goes on but does not heat up


The heating element needs replaced. This is extremely inexpensive and practical to do yourself. You will need to order the part for your particular dryer, I would suggest contacting the manufacturer for pricing. I would estimate about $30 for a heating element.

Bosch Axxis Dryer won'r heat


hi there what u need to check is the thermostats and the heater element which are at the back take the back panel of should be the small 1 and not the complete back panel right once uve got it of there u should see the stats and element now 1 easy way to check the element is with a cord with a plug on 1 end now with the wire at the other end place the live wire and the neutral wire on each of the prongs make sure they dont touch now hold the wire by the insulated part and turn on the power if it starts to glow then your heater element is ok and u should change the stats if it doesnt then your element is faulty m8
