Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

My Bosch WTMC3300 dryer will do a couple of loads fine but after warming up, the third time we go to use it, we push the start button and the motor hums and the barrell wont turn. I will then open the door and push the switch in with a pencil and move the barrell counter clockwise and the barrell starts to spin. Is this the sign of a motor going bad?

My Bosch Dryer Model nexxt WTMC3300 will not run. The Start switch indicating light turns on and blinks as it should. The lint light flashes a few times then goes out. But when I push the start switch,...


The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding 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 got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

My bosch nexxt wtmc3300 dryer won't start.... cleaned the lint filter, took the back off and vacuumed it out, everything is lightimg up but when i hit the start button, nothing.... please help, getting...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but with the most common there are two thermostat's/switches
which could be reset, plus a no reset hi-limit ( on the lint housing )... i.e. macmarkus_15.jpg ...which cannot be reset, but the hi-limit is the one related to heating...located on the heater housing and the other (emergency shut off/belt switch) is by the motor shown below.
Anyway,

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 please...safety first**

There is an auto shut off or emergency kill switch next to the motor I alluded to which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped for whatever reason.
This is the most likely scenario in my opinion based on your post...but again it depends on your model.
This will require you to remove the back panel again though. Once you've remove the rear panel, It will look like this image below and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back )...

i.e.

macmarkus_14.jpg
Since you`ve already taken the back of the dryer off before to gain access you should have no problem.

Either Scenario I alluded to will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.

The other would be resetting the hi-limit cut out, You can see through the back vent opening when the vent tube is removed ( cannot be removed without removing rear panel the first time, but if attached a certain way can be done each time after ) and then by pushing the red button in...shown below.

i.e.


923283f.jpg

Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear or if your model is completely different...some have line fuses at the back.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Yes, the motor is bad.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but if you want to attempt it I can walk you through it.
There should be a 5 YEARS warranty on the motor, so you might consider a repairman. Make sure they are LG certified and there will be no cost to you for the motor. The labor, however, may be up to you and could be expensive.

I'm willing to assist you on whatever you decide. The motor itself should be under $100.

Dryer won't start all the time. can hand start unit.


hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like ur motor is going out. Had this happen to my last dryer. If this is the case it will eventually just stop. Try running it without any laundry in it. if this works, then load it and see if it still works. (poor little motor has to work a bit harder with a full load) good luck.

Belt broke or came off. Replace or reset belt. Be sure to reset the switch that the tension arm activates when tension is lost.
