Sound like thermostat is not working. Should turn off heating elements when drying temp. is reached.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Electric Dryer: lint filter light goes on even though it does not need emptying

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.

SOURCE: I have an axxis not drying and code F:03 comes up

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 :)

Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

Turn dryer on and it starts to heat up and then the heat stops and within about 2-3 minutes will start to heat up and then the heating up stops.


Clean out the exhaust vent tubing really good.. A moister sensor will detect any build up of lint and shut the heat off

Takes to long to dry


is the dryer heating?start it for a minute,open the door and stick your hand in there,if it's not warm or hot then you have no heat,doesn't mean it's the element,you need to send model numbeand more info,if the element was bad it wouldn't work at all so you don't need an error code to tell you that,take off the vent line and run it,if it runs better than the line is still blocked,you could still feel air coming outside and still have a block,if it runs the same you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,you need to remove it to do this and vac out the inside of the dryer,is the vent line long?if it is use a leaf blower and blow it out,i'll put money on it that a ton of lint will blow out of it if you haven't cleaned it out in the past 2 or 3 years,if that's not the problem you could have a bad thermostat or heat relay but i need the model number and you need to first clean out the dryer and vent line and write back with what you found,good luck and let me know if you need more help

Won't dry, but get's very hot in the back


yes, unhook the vent to the back run the dryer if it heats better then either replace the venting or clean it out... hint use a leaf blower to blow that line out....... lint blockage or cloggage in the vent will reduce dryin times and yes possibly start fire... when it is on go outside to wear it vents and see or feel if it is blowin outside... hope this helps

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Will not dry clothes fully. the machine heats fine but it takes two or more cycles to fully dry a little load. someone told me about a part that may need repaced around the lint trap.. Any ideas?


Your lint exhaust is blocking the heat flow.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed cycle load for 40 minutes.
If laundry is dry, repair the outside vent.
If not dry,open the dryer cabinet and clean the inside lint and heat vent.

Dryer turns, heats up but won't dry


check the outside of your house to see how strong the blowing is if it's weak then it's in the vent tube

LGE59777S Not drying


There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.

Lint Filter


hi there,

i can understand your frustration. i have reviewed the information that i have from Bosch and they indicate that the lint filter indicator light should only come on as a reminder but should not shut off the dryer.

here is my recommendation and also a question:

the dryer is shutting off due to the fact that it's overheating. it's a safety precaution from the manufacturer and it's built in to prevent the lint collected in the lint filter, since it's highly flammable.

check the venting in the back or side, wherever it was installed.
the vent tube is often the cause for the dyer to stop functioning.
if that turns out to be okay, the dyer is equiped with a sensor on the heater. it is possible that it's opening due to the heat generated by the dryer that has nowhere to go.

does the display show any error messages?

can you tell me what they are?

thanks again
