Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with the first thing you should do is to remove the lint filter and clean the lint out of inside where the lint screen goes. After this unplug the unit for 5-10 minutes and then push & hold the start/pause button for 10-15 seconds and reconnect the unit. If still it won't work then it seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Check filter light blinking will not start only beeps what to do please help


Probably a lint buildup on the sensor. Need to clean the entire lint system. Should be able to remove the plastic frill if the lint filter is inside the drum. Remove the two screws and clean out all the lint then pull the dryer out remove the vent hose. Run a vacuum hose or reach up i to there and pull out the li t. Then clean out the vent hise...a broom handle works if it's a straight shot.

Always air filter clean


If the light comes on after it\'s started its cycle, that sounds like your dryer actually has a sensor in it (my dryer just has a fake light to remind you to clean the filter, but there\'s no sensor).

Either there\'s debris accumulated inside that\'s blocked the sensor (it\'s working correctly), or the sensor itself has failed (part repair).

It\'s possible your filter itself isn\'t letting enough air pass through any more. Do a quick test: run the dryer with the filter out and see if the light still comes on.

If the light still comes on, see if you can remove some lint from the dryer. Remove the filter and get a vacuum nozzle in as far as you can to try to suck out any lint that got past the filter.

Also check the exhaust. How recently was your dryer duct cleaned? Could it be clogged? Disconnect the exhaust from the wall and inspect the pipe. If you see a *lot* of lint and dust it should probably be cleaned. It\'s not expensive - call a duct cleaning company and ask them to clean your dryer duct and nothing else. No addons, no extended service plan, nothing - just clean the duct.

By now you\'ve checked the air going in and the air going out. If it still continues this behaviour I would look at the sensor itself. It\'s almost certainly cheaper in the long run to call in a repair person for that.

My lg 2240 clean filter light blinks even though the filter is clean. when started it runs for 3 to 4 seconds then shuts off. if you wait for about a minute it will start again then shut off after 3 to 4...


This problem usually is caused by a restricted or blocked vent. The filter itself can be clean, but the duct work in the dryer after the filter, or the vent hose attached to the dryer, or the exhaust door attached to that hose is either restricted, plugged or blocked. Lint likes to build up in all areas the exhaust air goes, so check them all. The dryer has a sensor that will shut the dryer off if there is a restriction. Cleaning all of the duct work, from the filter all the way to where it exhausts outside, will usually solve this problem. An easy way to check is to unhook the exhaust hose from the dryer and run it. Does it keep running now? It is possible the sensor in the dryer has gone bad, but that is rare. 99% of the time it is lint build up in the venting.

I have had this elect dryer for about 3 years. Same prob from the start.. Takes forever to dry any load of clothes.. Litterally 4 plus hours to dry 5 bath towel and 6 or 7 wash cloths.. this is...


Long drying times can commonly be the result of improper or restricted venting.

Examine your vent hose. How long is it? Too many bends?

Check to make sure your vent hose is clear and free of an restrictions.

If vented outside, is the flap opening properly and free of lint buildup and is the hose clear?

Pull your dryer away from the wall and disconnect the vent hose, use a vacuum or brush to clean out the inside of the hose, sometimes shaking the hose a bit (if possible) will free any lint buildup that your vacuum or brush may have missed.

Don't overlook cleaning out the pipe that the hose connects to on the back of the dryer.

Lastly if you have a lint filter that's on the top like mine, remove the lint filter and check for obstructions there, use a lint filter brush and clean well, this is often overlooked and a major cause of poor drying, overheating, or fire.

My BOSCH dryer #WTE86300US keeps stopping in mid cycle and gives the signal F3 which says to check condensation outlet and I have cleaned all the parts and cleaned hose but it will still beep after a few...


I have owned the same dryer for about a year and just started having this F03 problem. The condensation drain hose is the soft flexible rubber hose coming out of the back of the dryer and it drains into the same drain as a washer. It's easy to pull the hose off its connector at the back of the dryer and just blow hard into it to make sure there's no lint clogging the hose and reconnect it to the dryer. Next open the panel on the left of the dryer and thoroughly rinse (water only, no soap) clean the two parts behind the door (first is plastic and behind that is the condensation filter which probably is loaded with lint). Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back) can be quite stuck. Use a long pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. Shake the excess water out of the condensation filter and dry off the outsides of two parts. Clean all the lint out the compartment where the parts go. There is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver or a blunt table knife under the panel and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber that you can't see very well where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Use paper towel to get it all out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place as well as the condensation filter and the plastic part. Take out the lint filter (within the dryer drum compartment) and wash it with soap and water. Use an old toothbrush or something to clean the screens thoroughly. Rinse well and dry it completely. Clean all the lint out of the empty compartment. Put all three parts back into the dryer. Clean all lint off the door. Using paper towel moistened with white vinegar clean the two metal sensors in drum compartment on the front wall and lower left. Run the dryer empty but with heat on for a few minutes to make sure all the water is drained out. Now try drying a load. I think it's a good idea to rinse clean the condensation filter at least once a month since it collects a lot of lint. Hope this works for you.

Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer, E:01 and lint light flashing. nothing is stuck in the door.


Hi,
This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.
Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

I recently had an ventless Bosch dryer installed (WTE8600US) and I keep receiving this message F:03 which the manual says "check hose for condensation outlet". any advice?


For the F:03 problem on the Bosch Axxis (WTE86300US) do all the things mentioned in Solution #1 above. Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back)can be quite stuck. Use a pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. However there is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual or in Solution #1. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place. This should fix your problem.

Lint filter sensor with Error Code: 01 constantly comes on after the dryer is in use for 5minutes or less. Screen is clean, vent from back of dryer to 3ft of flex hose to outside wall is spotless.


Sounds as though the sensor is dirty of faulty. I would recommend having a service tech out to check and replace. Also if the sensor is going bad, it may be tripping it due to the excessive heat.
