How to Troubleshoot a Bosch Nexxt Dryer

The Bosch Nexxt clothes dryer features 15 different drying cycles and an energy-saving design. Bosch is known for producing durable appliances, but as with any appliance, problems can develop with the Nexxt dryer. Fortunately, most of the problems associated with this dryer can be traced to an electrical supply problem, overheating due to poor ventilation or a lack of periodic cleaning.

Regularly cleaning the lint filter and moisture sensor can significantly reduce many problems

Dryer Does Not Turn On

Step 1

Ensure that the dryer's power supply cord is firmly plugged into an electrical outlet.

Step 2

Inspect the structure's fuse box for a tripped fuse. Each fuse is assigned a single "On/Off" switch. If any fuse switch is in the "Off" position, flip that switch to the "On" position. If the problem persists, contact a professional electrician.

Step 3

Press the "Start/Stop" button on the left side of the dryer's control panel.

Step 4

Close the dryer door firmly so that the door clicks into place. The dryer will not operate if the door is not shut.

Lint Filter

Step 5

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull the lint filter out of the dryer. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then reinsert the filter and close the door.

Step 6

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.

Step 7

Increase the ventilation of the room the dryer is located in, such as by opening a door or window. Excessive heat will cause the dryer to automatically turn off until it cools as a safety measure. Increasing the ventilation will help keep the dryer cool.

Clothing Not Fully Dry

Step 8

Clean the moisture sensor. Open the dryer door to access the moisture sensor. The black-colored sensor consists of two bars, and is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, to the left of the lint filter. The sensor should be cleaned with a clean cloth and white vinegar once per month.

Step 9

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull out the lint filter. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then insert the filter back into the dryer and close the door.

Step 10

Spin the laundry at a higher spin speed in the washing machine before placing the laundry into the dryer to reduce the moisture content.

Step 11

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes to pass for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.
