Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 Dryer
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 )...
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.
Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

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
