Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Water builds up behind heat exchanger

I see similar problem posted previously regarding lint filter light. My lint filter and heat exchanger are clean. Manual says to check "air inlet." Where is this? Could my drain hose be blocked with lint? This is an electric condensation dryer, no vent.

I don't know if there is a cure for this. Bosch never answers my calls or my e-mails, but I have found that by blowing in the hose to disengage the lint collecting there and then sucking out the line will remove nearly all of the build up amd drying will resume.

Why is my Affinity dryer not heating as well as it was put new dryer hose in back just taking touble time to dry a small load of clother & I double spin the load also


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is taking double the time to dry a small load of clothes. I also see that you have put a new dryer hose on the back of your appliance to try and correct this issue. I suggest making sure that you have also cleaned out the lint filter as well as where the lint filter sits. You can clean the lint filter by running it under the hottest water you can stand and using a cleaning brush, gently, to remove any build-up. You can clean where the lint filter sits with a small attachment on your vacuum. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

After every load, the dryer lint trap is wet and there's water condensation on inside of the glass door even days after use. I've thoroughly cleaned the ducts and the lint filter as well as inside where...


Is it gas dryer?

If it is might be problem with the heat exchanger, Water is one of the by products of combustion.

By chance do you have a Carbon Monoxide sensor?

Easy way to tell if a cracked heat exchanger is the problem.

Other thought I have is the dryer heating up when its drying, if the heater isn't working and you are throwing wet clothes in there that could be part of the issue.

a couple thoughts anyways

There isn't any power, cord checks out fine,


The thermal fuse has failed. This is caused usually by extreme heat (due to internal or external lint build up).but can be caused by a componenet failure. I am using LEA10AW as the model number for parts reverence.
The thermal fuse is item 6 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=19412&diagram_id=28449751#d28449751

Things you must check
1. Lint filter and cavity for lint build up. (Remove the lint filter and wash it in vinegar and water and soap and water) Fabric sheet particulate imperminates the screen. It can look clean but be 85 - 95 percent blocked with the particulate.
2. All internal and external ducting for restrictions.
3. The outside wall thru the wall vent flapper for lint build up. (Clean it!)
4. Check for airflow after replacing the thermal fuse and cleaning. The air-flow at the dryer vent outlet should push a relaxed hand gently away from the outlet. If it does not to this there may be a broken blower wheel hub or impeller blades. Blower wheel is item 8 this link:

Use a folded wire coat hanger and a vacuum to remove all lint in hard to reach places.

Heating up but not drying clothes


Your vent could be clogged with lint and debris. First remove the lint filter and clean the visible lint. Then run it under warm water and use a soft brush to gently scrub to remove any chemicals from softeners that may be on the filter. While the filter is drying completely, use a dryer brush (available at most stores that carry appliance accessories) and clean out the vent as far as the brush will reach. Next go to where the vent exits your building, lift the flap and clean that area as well.
What happens is that lint builds up over time. The heat and moisture causes it to matt up and it can't be blown out by the mild wind force created by the dryer. The only way to get the matted material out is to clean with a brush and remove it.
I hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

It runs long enough to dry a load but then when you try to do another one it just buzzes when you push the button to start it. If you wait awhile then it will work,... like it over heated or something.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This is showing the symptoms of an air flow problem. I suspect that there is just enough air flow in the unit but when it shuts off the internal temps of the cabinet are providing enough heat to also cause the motor thermal overload to cycle.

You should break out the crevice tool and de-lint everything you can access. Also pull out the lint filter and wash it with white vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric softener sheets material builds up on lint filters. It looks clean but air will not pass through the lint filter.

Additionally inspect the vent ducting inside and outside the of dryer for lint build up. Make sure you go outside the home and check the vent flapper at the through the wall connction for lint build up also. This is often where lint build up problems start and then migrate inward blocking air flow.

If all of the above is good you will have to check the blower wheel mounted on the motor drive shaft for signs of a broken hub or... fan blades. A broken fan will cause poor air flow.

The dryer should provide enough air flow to push a relaxed hand / wrist away from the connection point on the back of the dryer. If you do not have this kind of air flow at the back of the dryer connection you need to find out the cause. I.e. lint build up or a fan problem.

Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.


Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick

Bosch axxis WTL lint indicator problem.


I have been struggling with this lint filter problem big-time. After reading the previous user's comment that his mesh holes had become clogged, I took a closer look at my filter and noticed that the tiny holes in the mesh were, indeed, clogged up. In fact, when I initially ran water on the filter it pooled up on the mesh like a solid plate...pretty good sign that air wasn't able to pass through the filter properly.

I used a soft toothbrush and soap to clean the filter, and when I ran water to rinse it off it the water passed right through the mesh. I popped it back in and, voila...That fixed it!!

Lint filter wanring signal


I posted in late December on the lint alarm and what I discovered was a bit alarming. (no pun intended) Lint had been accumulating on and around the heating coils used to dry our clothes. Some of the lint was burnt and the remainder, amounting to a small handful, was caught up in other area's around the lint sensor. After carefully cleaning the heating coils (with a tooth brush) and removing the rest of the lint and successfully putting everything back together, we have not had a lint alarm issue since. (Touch wood). No need to replace the lint sensor or any other parts. It was not that hard to take apart the back and remove the heating coils to clean, but it requires the unit to be unplugged, careful attention to what came off and where it goes back on. After what I found, I will be cleaning the heater coils out once a year. Which then raises the question. Should a person have to do this? The obvious answer is no! But from time to time we buy things that are not what we would expect and do what we need to do to make it work. From what I can tell, lint is getting past the lint filter and ending up where it shouldn't be. Hope this helps any of you that are having the same issue.

Lint filter going off after 5 minutes then shutdown


Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps
