the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

SOURCE: Our dryer will turn on, but won't actually

I assume it runs and this is from that stance. If it doesn't the motor has to be checked and the power coming in. In fact the dryer can run and still not have the correct power to opperate the heater.

A dryer has to have 2 things to dry clothes. 1 Air supply and exhaust, 2 Heating source. No mater if its a gas dryer or electric these 2 items are what dry the clothes..


A. If the dryer has all of these things it has to be heating and an air flow problem (kinked or dirty dryer duck, motor fan clogged with lint, vent flapper not opening...) is suspect.

B. ELECTRICAL
Assuming you have a volt meter and know how to use it properly.

These are the steps that the power and machine have to take to operate properly

1. power is correct (USA 220V across line and 115v to ground/neut) 2 hot lines with potential between them and a neutral and possible a ground
2 Door switch is closed
3 Timer switch closes and ready s power to heating element through centrifugal switch in the motor circuit after the motor is running.
4 the heating element is assumed to be good and have 220v at this point. Checking for voltage at the element will assure all before are ok and at least allowing the heater to work.
5 the heating element is controlled by 1 or more thermostats and a safety thermostat. If either of these switches do not close when the dryer is "cool" they are bad. NOTE some dryers could ahve 3 wire thermostats. These can read closed on one set and open on the other. And this is how they should be if good. But tracing the wire diagram will tell which set is closed and when.
6 if you have power, the timer contacts to the motor and the heater (separate circuits usually)are "closed", the motor runs, the cent switch "closes", the temperature operating thermostats are closed, and the heating element is good you have to have heat.

1 Check for 220V power into the dryer. If not check breakers and turn off and on several time pushing them firmly. If this is ok and 220V present step 1 is done. proceed through all steps above.

If these instructions and explanations are foreign to you I recommend you contact a local service person to check the appliance for you. There are several reasons but mostly safety. DO NOT ASSUME THE POWER IS EVER OFF. Like an unloaded gun is the only one ever in an accident, same applies to electric. The only time anyone gets hurt by electric is when the power is off. If the plug isnt in your hands and you cant see the knives its assumed hot til checked. even with a breaker thrown still check it.

If this helped you in some way please send me a good report. Thank you for using fix ya.

Have you checked the fan for any blockage? Make sure the blower fan is working properly.

Dryer not starting


Check your lint filter first, and then try to restart it. Also, make sure the door is completely shut. If this doesn't do it, check your condensation hose for blockage. These dryers are very sensitive to lint build up, so make sure to change your lint trap after each load. It's not only a good practice, but it's necessary with this machine

Bosch axxis wtl 5410 dryer takes too long to dry.


You should have a cycling thermostat. this is most likely bad or your dryer vent may be clogged. Something is cutting the heat off before it gets hot enough. Both these cause this problem.

The condensation hose is missing from my bosch 5410, what is the correct size of the hose and what material, thanks.


I assume you mean the vent hose, they are usually 4" in diameter,, measure the opening to be sure, you can usually buy one from a supermarket in the plumbing department.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
