Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer
The knob spins on the post and will not engage to select a cycle. I had it replaced last year which involved 2 trips from the repair service and the entire circuit board. I am not thrilled with the idea of that again, much less the cost $400. I am tempted to ditch the whole thing and buy a new dryer. There must be defect in the design because I am extremely careful with the knobs and are the solo user. I have called customer service and they have never heard of such a problem. Any ideas
I have the same issue with my Bosch WTA 4400 dryer. What happened was that the knob is weakly designed on the back side and quite a lot of torque is required to turn the selector unit. So, over time the plastic fatigued. Replace program dial and it should be fine.

Hello Gigi2deb, well to be honest I haven't heard of this happening either and I have been working on this model since it came out. The issue here is that the cycle selector board sounds like it has moved back. Turn off the power to the dryer, take a putty knife at the lower corner of the facia panel along the outside edge and pry out carefully. Now open the door and if you look up you will see 3 slots, with the putty knife insert there as well and pry out, the panel will lift out at the bottom and you can access the selector.
