I have a Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus Elect dryer and I continue to get an error message of "ER001" and the lint filter light comes on and the dryer shuts down. I've cleaned the filter, cleaned the sensors, even removed the vent to ensure nothing was obstructing the free flow of air. I've run out of solutions, any suggestions?
Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.
Hey, I have a great idea ! Don't use anymore fabric sheets in the dryer.. Liquid Downey is what we use and the E01 error has finally got out of my every dry cycle.. Honestly I think it is something in the sheets that clog up those 12 thousand holes on the lint filter...

Motor won't work Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped. Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows. Wire harness failed. Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness. Display shows "E:01" during drying. Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked. Air leaking past felt drum seal. Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet). Clean out filter, air duct and air damper. Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly). Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area
have you tried cleaning the filter with mild soap under hot water ? An old toothbrush works well for scrubbing the screen, careful not to tare it.
Can you test run the unit without a load remove the lint screen and the vent to see if the error continues ? That would identify if the error is related to air flow within the realm of "easy repairing". If it still comes up with an error without those things in place, the problem is within' the internal duct-work or controls.
Let me know what you find.
Hi, This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting. You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex. If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician. Good Luck and have a nice day. Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.
