Please check the following.

On the inside of the door near the top in the middle above the opening seal, there is a small prong which is the door latch switch trigger. This prong may be missing or not pressing enough into the switch to activate the safety interlock. This prong mates with a small hole immediately above the opening in the front of the machine. If you use a pen or similar object you can carefully press the lever inside by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. If you press the start button the machine should start.

If the dryer did start then you can extend the prong using a small wood screw and screwing it into the end of the prong, or a tight wrapping of electrical tape.

A more permanent fix would be to remove the upper control panel using a torx 25 screwdriver(the screws are under the 4 white small disks around the door handle opening on the upper control panel) and re-seat the switch mechanism into its retaining slot. The only way to fix a broken prong is to replace the door or reattach the missing prong

If this did not fix the problem then it is possible that the belt has come off of broken. Removing the top of the dryer be removing the upper 2 torx screws at the back and sliding the lid backwards will allow you to see if the belt is loose or broken. If it is then the back of the unit will have to be removed using a torx 25 type screwdriver.

Be sure to remove power (unplug) from your machine prior to opening any of the panels.

Hi,

Initially, pls check if there is a reset switch at the rear panel of the unit. If there, press on it and try again. If this does not work, unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of minutes, say 15 or so.

If the above does not work, pls posrt back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Instructions

Dryer Does Not Turn On
1

Ensure that the dryer's power supply cord is firmly plugged into an electrical outlet.
2

Inspect the structure's fuse box for a tripped fuse. Each fuse is assigned a single "On/Off" switch. If any fuse switch is in the "Off" position, flip that switch to the "On" position. If the problem persists, contact a professional electrician.

3

Press the "Start/Stop" button on the left side of the dryer's control panel.
4

Close the dryer door firmly so that the door clicks into place. The dryer will not operate if the door is not shut.
Lint Filter
5

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull the lint filter out of the dryer. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then reinsert the filter and close the door.
6

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.
7

Increase the ventilation of the room the dryer is located in, such as by opening a door or window. Excessive heat will cause the dryer to automatically turn off until it cools as a safety measure. Increasing the ventilation will help keep the dryer cool.
Clothing Not Fully Dry
8

Clean the moisture sensor. Open the dryer door to access the moisture sensor. The black-colored sensor consists of two bars, and is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, to the left of the lint filter. The sensor should be cleaned with a clean cloth and white vinegar once per month.
9

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull out the lint filter. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then insert the filter back into the dryer and close the door.
10

Spin the laundry at a higher spin speed in the washing machine before placing the laundry into the dryer to reduce the moisture content.
11

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes to pass for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.

Squeaks from drum area during operation


Hi there!

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.

If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.

If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.

Bosch Nexxt Dryer gets warm but laundry doesn't get dry. Dryer stops after about 10 min of running and starts ''beeping''


this could be a faulty moisture sensor. try running the dryer in a timed dry mode and see what happens.also be sure to make sure all the duct work is free and clear and that the lint filter is clean

Dryer not working, indicates "lint filter" When I try to use the dryer (Bosch Nexxt), i first turn the dryer to the setting desired (regular or perm press, and time) it immediately has the "lint filter"...


This is a common complaint with this dryer.The probe generating this problem,is at fault.It likely has a film on it,from the dryer sheets.Remove the lint screen,and wipe down the probe that sticks into the air box.Should fix the problem,if not ,replace the probe.

Bosch Nexxt Electric dryer tumbling but not heating up at all, I here rumors of a reset switch. Where is it located?


Unplug the dryer first. Then remove the back cover on the dryer. You will find the red reset button underneath the dryer drum. If the button has been tripped, you will feel and hear it click when you press it in. I would suggest that you vacuum out any dust or lint that has collected inside the unit before replacing the cover.

Squeaks from drum area during operation


We have a Bosch Nexxt dryer and it, too, squeaks during operation. We have not been able to find a permanent solution for this problem although we've had the repairman come out 3 times now. We have however found a temporary solution that lasts for about a week. We spray Static Guard (in an aerosol can) in the inside lining of the dryer... kind of in the lip of the front. (You shuld be able to feel it if you put your hand right inside the door.) We've just been spraying the static guard all the way around that area and the squeaking stops! Hope this works for y'all. May not be permanent but at least it stops the annoying sqeaking!
