Default Bosch Nexxt 500 series dryer help
Model Number: wtmc3321us/05   Brand: Bosch   Age: 1 - 5 years

I took my dryer apart to remove a piece of debris that was logged in between the guide wheel and the drum. Now after reassembling the dryer it wont start.
The control panel lights up and when I push the start button I here a click
where the power supply is. Like a switch or relay. But it doesn't come on.
I took it back apart but found no loose connections or any obvious reason for it not to come on. I know it was working. Just before I took it apart I turned it on to listen for the sound I was told it was making.

There's a switch on the motor called a broken belt switch. When the belt is removed, this switch is activated by the pulley and the circuit to the motor is opened.

Take the back off and get to the motor. You'll see a switch with a plunger on each side. Press the plunger on the left towards the right and you should hear a click.

After this is done, the unit should run.

Default I have close to the same problem

However, when I attempt to press the button on the left towards the right it doesn't click. I can press the right button to the left and make it click, then press the left button to the right and get a click. But I still cannot turn it back on.

I have all the lights working, but it doesn't start. If I have the Signal light on, I get a beeping sound when I press the Start button.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Below is the motor circuit for the WTMC dryers:

1) 120vac leaves out of the board on two brown wires that are plugged into a green plug. To check this, you'll remove the plug, start the unit and check for 120vac across the two pins.

2) The nuetral runs straight to the motor, but the hot leg goes to to non-resettable Thermal Overload Device (TOD). This TOD is near the lint filter housing and hard to get to, however, the next step will tell us if it's bad or not. The TOD would trip if the air temps near the filter rose too high, but this is unlikely, because there's a temperature sensor near the TOD that will cause the control to throw an error code if it were to get too hot.

3) Unplug the broken belt switch. Check it for 120vac coming into the plug. If you do read 120vac, the TOD is good. If not, hire someone to replace the TOD, because it's not an easy fix, i.e. it requires the removal of the drum.

4) If power is coming into your broken belt switch, but not leaving out, and resetting it doesn't resolve the issue, replace the broken belt switch. However, if power is entering and leaving the broken belt switch (when the plug is reconnected), the motor is bad, because it's the last component in the circuit.

Good Luck,
KC

Well, as it turned out, everything was working fine with the dryer. In taking it apart to remove the debris that was stuck between the drum and the guide wheel, I must have broke or bowed the plastic wiring harness that secures the button that indicates that door is shut. The piece of plastic on the door that presses the button isn't reaching the button. So rather than take it apart again and find some way to get the harness to secure more firmly against the front, I just extended the piece of plastic by drilling a small screw into the tip to make it about 1/4 of an inch longer. It works fine now. Just like many other things, it helps if it is just a little bit longer.

Thanks for your prompt response.
