There is a thermal reset button at the back of the unit on the heating element. to get to it you have to remove the back panel that covers the heating element. (its the panel that sticks out). Once that panel is removed you will see the red thermal reset button. press it so it clicks, then start unit. Let me know what happens.

Cycle is interrupted and ''E1'' appears in display.

Condensate hose is blocked in some way. Turn off dryer and check hose.
Condensed water not pumped out (WTL 54 condensation models only). Pump failed.

Bosch Dryer WTL 5410 UC do nothing after selecting a program and hitting the start button. The only thing that happens is that the Drying light lits and nothing else happens. I have tried to hit start...


Door switch may still be your problem. Mine showed lights as if working when closed but I decided to use a screwdriver and push in switch all the way in. It worked then without door closed. It will stay stuck until you pull it own a bit to release it. Give it a try. The door switch appears to have two switches in it requiring it to be all the way in.

Bosch axxis wtl 5400 dryer


I found that the dryer will not start because the door isn't fully closed. My wife has basically split the plastic door a bit, but if you firmly close the door, it will start.

Bosch Dryer lint filer warning


The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.

It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
