Default Remove Bosch Dryer Front Panel
Model Number: WTVC6530UC/11   Brand: Bosch   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Bosch Vision Gas dryer. The heat is low and sometimes non existent I need to inspect the burner and troubleshoot the igniter etc as in this procedure dryer not hot, gas smell

I need to remove the front lower panel. I have removed the three bottom screws but cannot figure out have to release it. My old dryer it just popped off after removing the screws but this feel like something is going to break.

Thanks
Robert

Gene, I did verify the number, it is correct. If you search for it on Google you will see that it is a valid number. Also, although it does not show up on AppliancePartsPros parts search, customer support confirmed it and that they have the parts for it today. I'm still trying to find technical documentation for it though. It is only two years old, so I may be out of luck finding that information.
Thanks for replying

Robert

I got removing the cover sorted out. But not until I pulled the washer/dryer stack out and removed the top cover and rear panel. Once I was in the back of the machine I could see how the panel is held on...
As it turns out, the lower panel is actually a plastic cover that sits very snug to the lower portion of the overall front panel. It is held in place by three screws at the bottom, six small “slide” clips and two additional detentes . All of the clips are integral to the panel so they are not replaceable if you break them.
To remove the panel, first, remove the three screws. They are T15 torx. The next step is sort of a two part operation; there are notches on each side of the panel pry the notched area away from the side about inch this will pull a small "bump" on each side out of holes in the front panel. With those held out push down on the lower panel and it will eventually slide off and you can pull it away. You may have to wiggle it a bit but it will come loose.
Once the lower panel is off there is a round cover, with one screw in it. Remove screw and cover and then you can access the gas valve and watch the burner operation etc.
Here is a link to a Bosch eShop Home where there is parts diagram that might make it easier to understand.

good luck

Hi Robert,

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your repair with us. Your post was very instructive and will help other people with similar problems.

I've been lucky to find the manuals for this dryer and I attached them to the post.

Thanks again and good luck with your dryer.

Gene.

Gene, where there any additional pages that had the electrical schematic? I am troubleshooting a problem burner shuts off, gas odor, Have replaced Coils and want to make some electrical tests that are not listed in the troubleshooting guide.

Robert,

Unfortunately the information I posted earlier is the only information I could find for this dryer. No electrical schematic or wiring diagram.

Gene.

Thanks Gene, I remembered that my old dryer had a dchematic tped inside the lower panel and sure enough I found the schematic for the new dryer folded up real small and tie-wrapped in a corner.
