Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5410 Electric Dryer
Have had this Bosch dryer for about 3 years.... Recently it has not been starting. I tried taking the filter out last time and it eventually started again after airing out for a day. This time it is not starting at all. The timer works and counts down but it never turns on. Any ideas...could it need new fuses? Comment by swank, posted on Apr 20, 2007 ok, so I took it all apart and tried to figure out what was going on. If I turned it on and press start nothing happened. If I then opened the door a current ran thru the circuit board (small flash of light) and the drum spun a little bit. If I pressed door again after I shut it no spark and no spinning. (I am guessing because I didn't press start) Now, the interesting part...If I dont allow the door to open and hold in the door button it will start the dryer and it will run accordingly. Do you think its the start button having a bad connection or a bad button? If it was a bad capacitor it wouldn't work at all correct?
You are right. faulty capacitor then no drum rotation. fault may lie with start relay on pcb and this is not repleceable as a separate part. worth while taking pcb out and examine carefully for damaged track and dry joints
