Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer
Sound like thermostat is not working. Should turn off heating elements when drying temp. is reached.

I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.
So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...
This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

Most likely your wall vent is restricted. Unhook dryer from wall vent and pull away from wall. If you don't get code your wall vent needs to be cleaned.
If unit still gives code sensor is either bad or theres a restrictions inside machine, likely in the blower wheel hosing. Air flow when running should be strong coming out of vent. many times strength of a blow dryer.

SOURCE: When we start the dryer
Hello, Welcome to FixYa. There are a couple of scenarios which may prevent the dryer from starting with Bosch, but based on your post it is indeed most likely the emergency shut off/belt switch. It is located by the motor as you said and in the event of too heavy a load or a broken belt it shuts the unit down & prevents any restart...until it is repaired or reset. (also can be tripped during reassembly by the drum shifting) **Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair tips suggested here please...safety first** This will require you to remove the back panel again. Once you've removed the rear panel, It is located next to the belt pulley and all you need to do is push it to the right ( from the back ) Let me know if you require further assistance to do this. Keep me posted how you make out or if anything is not clear. I'm presently on my iphone, but I can post more info with pictures to guide you if necessary...but please let me know. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)
