Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch.

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 which will prevent it to start in the event it was tripped for whatever reason.
The above is the most likely scenario in my opinion as it often happens to even trained techs when the unit is disassembled. This will require you to remove the back panel 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.

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 ( 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 ) will require the removal of that panel so let me know if you require further assistance to do this.

i.e.

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


Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

    These instructions were the best, I have never disassembled a dryer, and following these steps lead me to success. The problem was the switch had reset, i flipped it to the right and it turned right on. I guess the switch had reset because my wife was trying to dry an enormous blanket.

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

I have the model AWZ 7813 and the belt broke. I took the unit apart but need a new belt and the manual to show me how the belt goes on.


If you have seen belts in cars, there is something to remove the slack (spring loaded). Its similar to dryers,, the dryer belt goes around the drum and the motor (obviously). from there, there is a wheel that connects to the base. It is spring loaded and takes the slack off the belt. If YOU took it apart (recently), hold the wheel/spring assembly in your hands as it would be positioned if it were screwed into the chassis. Move the wheel to get an idea what direction the spring pulls.

I hope this helped a little.

Makes a strange noise, as if something is rubbing. The dryer works, I took off the bottom front panel, and evrything seems fine, ie the belt looked fine, no debris found.


Most noise complaints from this style dryer comes from the idler pulley and two drum support wheels. The idler pulley just clips into the bottom of the dryer and keeps tension on the drum belt. The drum rollers have clips that must be removed from the shafts before trying to replace them. If one wheel is worn out, replace them both = less problems later on. See "how to take apart" to access the rollers, once the belt is disconnected from the idler pulley and motor pulley, lift out the drum. The roller on the left has a bracket and 2 clips to remove before the roller can be replaced. The right roller has just 1 clip that must be removed to replace the roller. Use a cloth or fine sand cloth to clean up the shafts, use a light oil before installing the new rollers. DO NOT use a heavy grease as this will attract dust and become very dirty and gum up the rollers. Check the belt will you are there and clean out any dust from motor and from the drum base. See how to take apart information. Anew picture of the roller, shaft and clips... you can get the required board and components at ----- www.partselect.com -------- or from ------ www.repairclinic.com ----
---------
if you are not familiar with doing this you can get it done by local appliance repair technician familiar with this model.

Horrible noise and burning smell when dryer is on


Same thing happened to us, the noise is one of your wheel bearings are going bad, (they are just a small piece of plastic rollers) and the smell is your belt. The dryer is dismantled from the front. I figured out how to take my dryer apart from google. Also, you may need some help to pull out the drum wheel and pay attention to how it came out. I ordered parts from repairclinic.com and it was very inexpensive and the parts took 3 days to come to me ( I wouldn't pay for faster shipping).
Good luck, you won't believe how uncomplex your dryer really is.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck

Kenmore dryer help?


Sounds like motor is stalled. Remove the lint filter, look inside down toward the bottom left corner at the blower wheel. Something may be jammed in the blower wheel. If difficult to see, TURN OFF POWER TO MACHINE, remove bottom access panel. 2 to 3 screws on bottom of panel. Remove lint housing (3 to 4 screws) and inspect blower wheel for debris.

A scratching noise


One, or both drum idler wheels has failed, the noise is the drum shaving rubber of the now stationary wheel.
Belts and Idlers are a standard item that fit many dryers, and your local parts guy has them on the shelf.
Replace both idlers and the belt at the same time, the other wheel and belt will fail soon cause of the extra load, and they are both as old as the first one, and you dont want to pull the dryer apart twice.
