Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I had a rubbing sound in a bosch nexxt 100 series Dryer and it was caused by the cheap plastic cover that was put on the front on this Dryer, which broke off and dropped down in to the wheel and tub area. I was able to take it apart and remove the plastic and put it back together but when it was all back together it would not start. The lights would come on and it would click as if it was going to start but then it would stop and the lent filter light would come on. Any Suggestions. Thanks,

Hello Andy,

Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting, but I can narrow it down to two probabilities based on your description...even further depending on how you went about taking it apart.

To save time and back and forth dialog, I`ll mention the most likely and what to do about it.

**Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here first**

There is an auto shut off or emergency kill switch next to the motor which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped while you took it apart or the plastic piece jamming it up.

It will look like this image below and all you need to do is push it to the left ( from the back )...

If you`ve taken the back of the dryer off to gain access to the plastic piece which feel off you should have no problem, however if you did it by removing the top this will be a little more involved.

Either Scenario I alluded to ( the other would be resetting the hi-limit cut out you can see through the back vent opening when the vent is removed and then by pushing the red button in...shown below ) if the rear panel is in it`s original position will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.


Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

    Hi again Andy,

    I`m thinking in reverse...It should be pushed to your RIGHT ( towards the belt pulley/tensioner ) from the back. Sorry, I think I caught it before you would manage to get far though.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.

I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Bosch nexxt series 100 washer. washer willnot start three beeps and all the lights are on.


Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like a bad door latch/lock. It will require you to remove the front door seal spring to gain access to the part.

If this sounds like something you can repair I'll try and help in whatever manner I can or you may opt to call a pro.

Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck

Does this machine have a filter on the drain line? How do you access it?

The filter should be located at the bottom front right of the washer.
It may be behind a removeable plastic cover at the bottom of the washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

We have a Bosch Nexxt 100 Series Washer. The door lock is stuck and will not unlock. We have a load of clothes in the washer but are unable to get the door to unlock. I have tried unplugging the unit,...

Getting the door open is the easy part. Finding out why it won't open might take a little doing -- though replacing the door latch is also easy. To get the door open, Take an awl or something pointy and place it in the hole on the small round cover in the lower left front of the machine. Now use this to turn the cover, unscrewing it from the machine. Once the cover is off, you should see a plastic rod hanging down. Pull this rod and it will unlock the door. You can now remove your wet clothes from the machine and investigate the cause of the problem.

I am replacing the lock, what does the plastic rod hanging down from it do and does it need to be attached to anything

It attaches to a pull strap. The pull strap is in case the switch fails it can be pulled to get the door open. Most bosch pull straps are located behind the drain filter cover (lower right).

Bosch 100 series will not drain

Bosch Nexxt 100 series front load washer

You first of all need to check the pump filter.
This should be located at the botom front right of washer.
Look for a drop down flap or cover, once located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

The pump itself is directly behind the filter housing, check there is nothing stuck in the housing.
This should solve the prob.
Please leave feedback for my solution.

My dryer won't start. None of the buttons will light up when pushed. It is a Bosch Nexxt 100 series. It is plugged in and adjacent appliances (washer) work.

Remove the top panel and check for any wires that may have popped off from there connections!!
Do not forget to unplug the dryer from the power source for your safety!!
