Question about Bosch Dryers

1 Answer

When a load is added to dryer the dryer has difficulty starting to spin, this problem has got worse, now it will only start if there is only a couple of items in the drum (2kg) any more and the motor just growns? It's almost as if it just needs that initial jump start to get it spinning. Once dryer is spinning it is fine?

The typical motor has to elements to it. There is a start winding and a run winding. The start winding supplies the initial kick that your machine is missing and the run winding supplies the running power. In some cases the relay on the motor itself can be adjusted to allow the start winding to perform its function. In most cases the entire motor will need to be replaced.

In some rare instances there have been misshapen blower wheels which cause excessive friction on the blower housing which in turn mimics a bad start winding.

To make a long story short the changing of a motor on the Bosch dryer (either the large dryer or the small one) is fairly involved and you should have a professional check it out.

My dryer just stopped working. We did a couple of loads today and on my start of the second load, I put the clothes in the dryer and turned the START switch, but all you hear is the dryer trying to start....


It is your motor. Here is a trick to try to see if that is the case. Get some tape and put it over the door safety latch. Spin the drum as you press the start button, if the dryer takes off then it motor.

HI MY AMANA DRYER HAS A HARD TIME STARTING AND AFTER A FEW MINS. STOPS


I am a little puzzled! Normally the difficulty is with startup rather than stopping after starting. Are you sure that the drum actually turns or maybe it just sounds like it is turning? If it never actually turns then it is probably the belt or the motor. You can make sure by placing only a few items in the dryer (try a couple towels or different colors) place the towels inside, (pay attention to where they are) begin the cycle, open the door to see if the towels have changed position. If the drum has been rotating then try adding a few more items to see if things change.
If the drum does not turn at all it maybe the drum belt. If, as you increase the load, the drum has difficulty starting then it is probably the motor or a control circuit. Hope this helps...Good Luck. Douglas
