    Note to all The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tye-wrapped to the frame

    Turns out it was the belt switch. To reset the switch I had to unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. Note last two screws hoding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover .
    On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click)
    Do not push the right button as that is what was tripped originally .
    After I fixed the problem my son admitted he had put some heavy hockey equipmnt on the drying rack.
    Apparently it was too heavy and pushed the rack done stoping the drum from turning. This caused the belt to stretch which then tripped the belt tension safety switch. Wish they would have simplly described the problem in the trouble shooting list in the manual

Thanks so much! I replaced the blower fan in mine, and after I got it all back together, it would not turn on.... Since I had removed the drum, and belt, the switch had been triggered... This was the trick... Thanks again...

Ihave Bosch Maxx 6 e2 error. I tried to reset the machine but it didn't work. What is the problem and what can I do?


The e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.

To fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen) (and neither with mine)
4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing.
This worked for me

I have a gallery series dryer and after a short time, maybe 20min, the dryer stops and all the lights on the right side start flashing


Good Morning Catherine Funk, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer will start and stop after 20 minutes, also the lights on the right side start flashing. Could you provide me with your model number, please? You can usually locate it on the door frame of your dryer. With that information I can examine your control board and provide any further assistance. -Matt

Bosch Washer flashing E:


John-I have the same problem. I called service, they told me to unplug it (or turn off the breaker) for 30 mins, then turn back on. That should reset it. However, for me, it didn't do a thing. He said if that didn't work it's time for a service call.
