The full tank light remains on even though the tank is empty. Is there a sensor which stops the dryer from restarting

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.
The tank capacity is about 3.5 lt., enough for a drying cycle.

- Remove the screw (1) which secures the support micro and use a screwdriver for the two hooks which secure it to the sump.

- Lift them simultaneously and unthread the micro support towards outside
Putting upside down the support you can access the floating microswitch.
25069013-hcssld2gpo2sm22yg24xoxcy-3-9.jpg Inside the sump there is the float.
To extract it rotate the float 90° clockwise as shown.
Lift it up, rotate it towards outside and extract it.

While reassembling the pump, the float and the tank microswitch, repeat the same operations backwards, paying attention that when the micro support is remounted it is necessary to use a screwdriver in the fissure (indicated by the arrow), to lift the micro lever and lean it over the float (if this operation is not carried out the lever of the micro comes up alongside the float (it deforms) and the two components do not function anymore.

You will need to remove the top panel, then the front panel in order to access the dryer interior on this model. With the dryer UNPLUGGED, follow these steps:
1. Locate the screws for the top panel in the REAR of the dryer. With the screws removed, the top panel should slide back, then lift off so you can access the screws holding the front panel in place.
2. Disconnect the door switch connector and any ground wires that may be attached to the front panel. Then, remove the panel screw on each side that holds the front in place. With the screws removed, the panel will lift up, then come off.
You should now have full access to your dryer interior. If you have any questions about this procedure, or if you need additional advice, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: There are helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can assist with disassembling and reassembling your dryer at the following websites:

Light says tank full even though i have emptied it on tricity bendix tm310w

[unplug the appliance before proceeding] At the back of the dryer close to the floor there is a white cap secured with a spring coil lock. Use a pliers to loosen the spring and remove that cap [make sure you have a towel in place as there will be water]. After it has drained fully [you should tilt the dryer on it's left side when viewed from the rear and then tilt back towards you to get all of the water] replace the cap and secure it with the spring lock. Now tilt the dryer on it's left side and let it drop from about 5cm. See if that resolves the problem, if not remove the left side panel - when viewed from front [ you need to remove the lid by unscrewing the two retaining scrfews at the rear and sliding it back, then remove 4 screws from the back panel that connect to that panel, there is one more screw at the top front of the panel]. Unplug the two hose pipes [red and clear] and remove the small retaining screw then pull out the complete housing [it will slide]. You can then see the black float which triggers the tank full switch. Clean it and any other gunk that is in the reservoir. If there is a lot of dirt then you may have to clean your condensor [see operating manual for instructions on how to do that]. Put it all back together and the 'full tank' issue should be cleared.

Full water indicator lit continuously even though

Problem was a stuck float in the small water reservoir to the rear left of the unit.. Remove top and left hand side panel. Small reservoir can be seen at the bottom left. Remove small screw and slide off the cable assembly above. You should then see into the reservoir and the float. Clean float and reservoir and reassemble.

My Holmes HM3500 Humidifier is plugged in and full of water. Just replaced filter. Filter has soaked water all the way up to the top of filter. Both lights are lit, but fan is not turning on. I have tried...

Hi there,

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.
If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Post comments  for more help or information .........

Good Luck!!

Bosch dryer warning sounder for container full will not stop

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.

First check the electrical panel to your house. If it's a fuse panel check the fuses. If it's a breaker panel, reset it by flicking it off, then back on (do this even if it looks like it's already on).

If the dryer still doesn't work...

1) Check the door switch by pressing it in and listening for a clicking sound as you do so. If the door switch actuator spring is broken or if there is no click, replace the door switch assembly. This is done by removing the 2 screws under the lint trap screen and lifting the cabinet top. From there you can access the door switch. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE DRYER! You can also use a jumper wire on the door switch to verify it's function (unplug the door switch and connect a jumper wire to the 2 wires going to the console.

2) Check for a broken belt by lifting the cabinet top and visually inspecting the belt or by manually turning the drum from the inside (you should feel resistance or hear the motor turning).

3) Unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. On the heater housing remove the wires from the thermal cut-off and high limit thermostat and check the resistance with an ohm meter. If either of them are open (no reading) replace both (they come as a kit).

3) If everything checks out so far it may be the timer.

Good luck!

Tank full light stays lit.

Under the water bottle is a drain hole,when the bottle overflows water runs down this hole through a pipe to a reservoir behind the condensor unit, there is a float in this reservoir that rises and clicks a switch that activates the full tank light and stops the machine working,
removing the stopper at the rear and emptying the reservior should do the trick,If the float does not go back down due to dirt in the machine the left hand side panel can be removed by taking off the top then the retaining screws,one inside at the top the rest in the back panel,remove the one screw holding the float switch unit and clean the black float.(Make sure it's not plugged in)
