Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 Dryer
Welcome to FixYa.
There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch. I'm not sure which reset you activated, there are two which could be reset, plus a no reset hi-limit ( on the lint housing )... i.e. ...which cannot be reset, but the hi-limit is the one related to heating...located on the heater housing and the emergency shut off is by the motor.
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 as it often happens to even trained techs when the unit is re-assembled. 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 )...
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, I suspect this is the one you reset ?...correct me if I'm wrong. You can see through the back vent opening when the vent is removed and then by pushing the red button in...shown below.reset switch by motor as it wasnt heating...put - 923283f.jpgbr />i.e.
Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.
