    I'll let you know how I get on.

    just had a brainwave abour what can cause overheating - it was the outside grill that had become blocked. (It's on my neighbour's property so I hadn't noticed it.)

    Cleaned it out and the dryer works fine.

    Thanks again Ronnieh49!

The heating element or limit switch is out would be worth fixing

I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

My Bosch dryer never seems to get very warm.It's an Axxis. I've only washed about 10 loads. It seems to take a long time, and when I take the clothes out, they are cool to the touch. Even when I touch the...


Hi,

There are a few possibilities here:

1. Washer/dryers generally take longer to dry clothes than a stand-alone dryer so if you previously had a stand-alone and are now using a combi, this could be the reason.
2. There are usually at least 2 heat settings on a dryer, so maybe you have it on a cool setting?
3. The last part of a drying cycle (5-10 minutes) is usually cool - even when on a high setting. This helps to reduce creasing and cools metal parts such as zips and buckles for saftey. This could explain why everything feels cool when you remove the clothes.

It's possible your old dryer didn't have the cool final setting and/or it was higher power than your new Bosch and therefore dried the clothes quicker.

If your new machine is taking an eternity and your clothes still aren't properly dry, then there may be a fault with your dryer thermostat which is switching the heating coil/element off at too low a temperature. However, I suspect your problem is related to information I've written above.

It would help to know whether you have an Axxis washer/dryer or just a dryer. If the information above doesn't help you to solve your problem, please post back with details of your machine, including the model number, if possible.

Regards,
BElectric.

Not heating


Probably the heater element has failed, it would probably be better to think of replacing the dryer at 10 years old, as Bosch spares are very expensive.
Hope this helps you to make a decision as to what to do.

My Bosch dryer spins but does not heat up. It is


Most likely it is the thermal switch that is located near the heating elements. This switch is the device that regulates the temperature. When it goes bad, it remains open usually. Short of a burned heating element wire, this is probably it. The only other thing it could be is the switch on the end of the motor. This switch turns on the heating element only if the motor runs. Check that too. Good luck.

Bosch dryer


I had this problem for an axxis condensation WTL5410.
When starting dryer ligghts on front would cycle through normally as if dryer were running but dryer would not turn or get hot.
The problem was the door switch.  Push in the door switch activator on the bottom right of the dryer.  Push it hard a few times and try the dyer again.
doesnt sound like a great solution - but after 150$ and 2 service calls - it was what fixed it for us.

I just had the same problem, motor runs but no heat. I had a fun time figuring out how take the front panel off, hint the rubber seal comes off easily. It looks like mine tripped the resettable over heat sensor. So far so good.
