Bosch dryer won't heat - tested usual suspects, what next?
Hoping someone with a bit of repair experience can help. My Bosch Vision 300 electric dryer (~2 years old) will not heat up to dry clothes. I checked the lint trap and cleaned everything out inside. I also checked the conductivity for the heating element, thermostat and fuse and all of them seem to be fine. I tried running the diagnostic program to check for error codes, but nothing shows up on the display. All the programs and everything seem to work, I'm just not getting any heat.

What do I check next..? Or I am already at the point where it could be the control board? Any help is appreciated, I'm in a remote area and don't have a local service center that supports Bosch appliances.

Check to make sure you have 240v at the back of your unit where the plug mounts into the unit at the terminal block.......if you don't you have an issue with your breaker wiring in house. if you do here's some helpful video's, check inside your unit for a tech sheet on a wiring diagram if not go to the element and follow your way back testing continuity on every single wire in that circuit and all the thermostats, fuses, thermisters in the system all the way back to the timer.......

Thanks, I did exactly that and found a faulty breaker. Problem solved thank goodness - much cheaper than a control board! :)
