You asked,Bosch WTMC 3300 Where is the reset button and how do I get to it?

Try going to the breaker box and powering the unit off for 5 minutes. This will reset the system and remove any electronic glitches.

How do you reset the Bosch 500 series dryer?

One has to remove the back panel (need Torx bit). Down by the exhaust vent, there is a small red button (see detailed drawing) and push it to reset. It is annoying but will save a lot of money on a service call.

What is recommended load size for Bosch Nexxt dryer

The Bosch Company is probably known best for its high-end dishwashers, but the company also produces other home appliances including refrigerators, stoves, washers and dryers. Bosch dryers carry the Energy Star rating. A Bosch dryer has a structured drum that provides more thorough drying and condensation drying for faster cycle completion. If mechanical problems occur with the dryer and troubleshooting efforts fail, performing a reset may return the dryer to normal functioning.

1Unplug the Bosch dryer from the power supply and then reconnect to the power supply.
2Replace the local fuse or reset the circuit breaker if a fuse or circuit breaker has tripped.
3Place items to be dried into the dryer and select a program. Close the door firmly.
4Press "Start/Pause."
5Press "Stop/Cancel" if the above steps do not resolve the problem.
6Pull the dryer out from the wall and use a standard screwdriver to remove the central metal plate on the back of the dryer.
7Locate the small red reset button above the heating element and press and hold the button for a few seconds. Release the button.
8Place the back access panel back on the driver and move the dryer back against the wall. Repeat steps 3 and 4. If the problem continues, press "Stop/Cancel," turn off power to the dryer and contact an authorized service technician for assistance.

When the dryer is running it sometimes makes a screeching sound momentarily on and off during the dryer cycle. Some cycles it does not make the sound at all. Is something going bad? It doesn't seem to...

It is not drying, what could be causing this?

My dryer will not heat up. I have to hit the reset button and it will dry one to two loads then need to be reset again.

There is a good possibility that you have a clogged or kinked dryer vent. Check for kinks between the unit and the wall. for clogs, the most common spot is right at the vent opening outside. Alot of times there is a screen to keep animals/birds out, that clogs with lint and causes the dryer to not dry well and/or have problems like you are describing. Hope this helps.

Bosch dishwasher washes dishes but does dry completely

Heating element is probably not working. Open during dry cycle and feel if it's hot inside.

Dryer will heat for awhile and then shut off, requiring resetting the reset button.

Must be a restriction of air flow due to having too many clothes in the machine,blocked vent, or lint buildup in the machine.

I have a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 electric dryer. The dryer doesn't heat up. This is the second time this has happened over a one year period. The first time it happened, the technician reset the thermal cutoff, but said he saw no reason why it should have tripped. Can you tell me how to reset the thermal cutoff or offer another solution?
