Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I'm using a Bosch Axxis dryer for the first time. The dryer seems to run for a minute, cut out for a minute, run again, cut out again etc. Is this normal? I'm renting this place for a month and there are no instructions for the dryer. I wouldn't want to be doing some damage to the dryer. Please advise.

Hi,

Werlcome to FixYa.

That is indeed perfectly normal. It is actually changing direction each time it stops and starts. That`s how those particular Bosch operate.

On another note, if you operate the unit on the "auto dry" cycles without enough items or extremely light weight materials in it, the dryer will stop since it cannot "sense" the garments.

Otherwise it`s all good !

Good luck.

Heats spins but doesnt dry. its clean and lint free there is no exterior vent on it bosch axxis v20-ul thx


If you have heat, then it's an airflow issue as inside your dryer you have several thermostats, one is called the high limit thermostat, when the dryer can not vent properly, the heat builds up in the dryer and this thermostat cuts off the heating element for safety reasons, and the heat may not come back on for 20 minutes, I understand there is no exterior vent but the dryer does vent air. More then likely once you take the dryer apart and clean the lint out of the inside it will run correctly. Hope this helps Tim

Bosch WTL5400 Drier runs fine for 5/10 minutes, then it stops and the "start" light flashes. Pressing this then restarts the process, but a few minutes later it cuts out again. I have checked...


I have the same problem, the dial to select the dry program is making a bad contact causing it to stop. Try using a different program.

I tried to clean the dial but it didn't help.

I have an axxis not drying and code F:03 comes up


Most likely your wall vent is restricted. Unhook dryer from wall vent and pull away from wall. If you don't get code your wall vent needs to be cleaned.

If unit still gives code sensor is either bad or theres a restrictions inside machine, likely in the blower wheel hosing. Air flow when running should be strong coming out of vent. many times strength of a blow dryer.

Bosch Axxis Starts and stops


The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?

Only a little heat is going to the cylinder


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?

Bosch dryer


I had this problem for an axxis condensation WTL5410.
When starting dryer ligghts on front would cycle through normally as if dryer were running but dryer would not turn or get hot.
The problem was the door switch.  Push in the door switch activator on the bottom right of the dryer.  Push it hard a few times and try the dyer again.
doesnt sound like a great solution - but after 150$ and 2 service calls - it was what fixed it for us.
