I have a Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer. Today I was drying my clothes and half way through the dry the machine just stopped spinning. I press start and it just makes a clicking sound but it doesn't spin....


Hello, Welcome to FixYa. There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but based on your post it is most likely the emergency shut off/belt switch. It is located by the motor and in the event of too heavy a load or a broken belt it shuts the unit down & prevents any restart...until it is repaired or reset. To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention what to do about it. **Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here please...safety first** This will require you to remove the back panel. Once you've remove the rear panel, It is located next to the belt pulley and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back ) Let me know if you require further assistance to do this. Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear. I'm presently on my iphone, but I can post more info with pictures to guide you if necessary...but please let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus Elect Dryer Error E01


Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.

Cheers!

MDB7100AWB STOPS AFTER 3 SECONDS OF RUNNING


1. The Maytag sevice centers, if close, are "great". You describe the problem and they supply the part. If far still give them a call.

2. The problem is probably the control. It's a simple fix. Just replace the part. And you can order the part from the service center. Takes 10 minutes.
