I cannot locate the pipe at the outside back of the machine, please can you be more detailed in the precise location of the hose.
You ask me to pour 1/2 cups of water into the tank holder; is this the container for the condensate?
The part number on my dryer does not show "/14"
the machine was certainly purchased in Nov. 2013.
Your last suggested procedure completed and yes
water flowed from top of compartment above where the entry to the condensate container would be
located. Bingo we are making progress.
Yes there appears to be a fair amount of heat being
generated, the outside cabinet feels quite warm and the garments are being dried but more slowly than normal. Our worry is:- where is all the water going
which was formerly collected in the condensate tank?
I understand your instructions but I am not sure how to
remove the condenser cover. There does not appear to be any external fasteners.
Does the panel just pull out? It appears to require a
lot of force to remove it from the cabinet. And you-know-who would give me a load of earache if I bent
or broke something!!!!!!!!!!!!!
George, I am now obliged to leave the computer until
tomorrow hope to be able to contact you in the near future.
Have now made arrangements to return to computer
at hourly intervals throughout this evening.
Sorry Jim, I've just rechecked and fount that you can't clean the condenser on yours as the base unit is a complete unit with a heat pump system.In answer to your other question about where the water goes; what water does not go into the condensate drawer is reused internally in the self cleaning system..If the dryer takes too long to dry the clothes, but is otherwise working correctly; try cleaning the sensors just behind the filter inside the door...My works number is #07787182156 if you need to chat but can't otherwise get meregardsGeorge
Please remember to rate the assistance given with the best rating you can as you can only do this once.
Thanks George for all your deliberation and patience
in dealing with an octogenarian. I do understand your finding with respect to inaccessibility.
This appears to be yet another example of our throw away society.
Thanks again, Jim.
OK Thanks George.
Hi George don't laugh or swear; since our last communication we have carried out an exhausted search of our archives and located the paperwork with respect to the purchase of the Bosch Dryer AND
would you believe the Dryer is still under warranty.
A Bosch engineer is visiting today.
Apologies for all the unnecessary deliberations
The Bosch engineer came with all the diagnostic test gear and said the machine was in working order and was unable to find any malfunction.
The jury is now out until the next big wash session.
