Bosch Maxx 6 doesn't dry anymore?

Hi,

after about 3 minutes into any programme the drying light and the door opening light flash and the machine beeps a couple of times. The dryer is cold inside.

I have cleaned the fluff filter, emptied the condenswater container, rinsed the airfilter and checked the cooling grill.

What can the problem be? Heating coil???

Thanks
Alexandra

Yes,it is the first thing to check ,If you can somehow see if its glowing when you start the dryer.It may also be a thermal fuse.

Bosch vented dryer stops after a few minutes with drying and crease hold/end lights flashing


It could be that it is over heating. I would check the vent tube to see if it's clogged or check the part where you hook up the vent to the dryer

Bosch dryer beeps


Two Beeps on my Bosch WTE84100au Condensing Dryer means a thermal overload but also means one of the thermal sensors is faulty .... as if it is always on.
Open the door, pull out the lint catcher and clean around the silver probe (it's like a shiny 1/8" nail sticking into the cavity below the lint catcher). If it still doesn't work (and still 2 beeps), just flick it lightly a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, flick again from the other direction.

I have a Bosch Maxx Sensitive WTE84100AU dryer which stops a few minutes after the dryer starts. The dryness lights all turn off. The clothes don't dry.


There is a thermal overload switch behind the back cover. It has overloaded because the big lumps of lint in a) lint basket, b) small vents either side of the vent basket (use a chopstick), c) in the big pull out condenser unit at the front bottom left, and d) reach right to the slot for the condenser unit and scrape all the lint out of the back.

Now you can do the reset - unplug your dryer first. You will need a Torx T15 screwdriver to undo the all screws around the fan & drum cover, then use a thin blade to pop off the back cover. If you don't have a Torx screwdriver, you will have to buy or borrow one - there are just too many screws to use anything else.

I was thinking of drilling a 6mm hole in about the right spot so I can poke a chopstick through to press the reset button. 6607f76a-b20b-43ef-8059-a4858d51d2dd.jpg

My dryer Bosch maxx 7 doesn't work


That is a bad motor. It is overheating and the overload is shutting it down. Check to see if there is lint buildup on the motor. If not, you will need a new motor.

sounds like the door switch might be an issue,, does teh tub light go on /off as you open the door??? if not try manually pushing the switch in a few times.

Bosch maxx wtl 6300 dryer when placed on a dry cycle it beeps every couple of minutes and stops and the filter light flashes. The lint filter is cleaned and it still does this any help?


Hi Guys...
At least I can shed some light on how to open the bottom part.
When you are looking into the dryer with the door open, take a look at the bottom hinge of the door. There is what looks like to be button popped out slightly.. 
Place your thumb on it and press. This should open the bottom part of the dryer.  Then clear out the gap between where the lint filter connects to the other units below it (when the door is closed...)
Hope this makes sense... there seems to be a sensor there..  I just cleaned mine so praying that the beeps stop.. Its been driving us mad for the last 8 months!
