Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My WTL 5410 dryer (electric condensation) has hot air coming out of the low rear duct opening (where the condentate hose connection is located. The hose is properly connected and occationally has water draining out of it. My landloard claims that I need a hose to air out the hot air. Despite explanation that this dryer doesn't need a exhaust duct he still thinks that there should be NO hot air come out of this vent opening otherwise it need a exhaust duct. Is he correct and what's wrong with the dryer if hot air comes out of the opening in the lower right side as well as from the venting slots?

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

You are correct, the unit being a condenser model doesn`t require any additional venting or exhaust to outdoors, that is the purpose of condensing the moisture internally.

As to the issue of air flowing out of the unit I`d suspect perhaps the heat exchange may need cleaning, if it is plugged it will cause the air to be directed elsewhere.

I`ve attempted to attach below the procedure for cleaning, if unsuccessful for whatever reason, too small for example, you or your landlord can email me at macmarkus@live.ca and I can send you the "pdf" guide for your Bosch dryer.

Open the bottom front panel. Remove the heat exchanger. Take notice to see if theres any water in that compartment. Reach your hand towards the back of that opening to see if there is water pooling back there. If theres water present, then your condensation pump needs to be replaced.
also double check the connection of the drain hose from the dryer to the drain.

Dryer not starting


Check your lint filter first, and then try to restart it. Also, make sure the door is completely shut. If this doesn't do it, check your condensation hose for blockage. These dryers are very sensitive to lint build up, so make sure to change your lint trap after each load. It's not only a good practice, but it's necessary with this machine

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

Bosch axxis wtl 5410 dryer takes too long to dry.


You should have a cycling thermostat. this is most likely bad or your dryer vent may be clogged. Something is cutting the heat off before it gets hot enough. Both these cause this problem.

The condensation hose is missing from my bosch 5410, what is the correct size of the hose and what material, thanks.


I assume you mean the vent hose, they are usually 4" in diameter,, measure the opening to be sure, you can usually buy one from a supermarket in the plumbing department.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
