Customer Question

Hi, we have a Bosch washer drier exxcel, about a year old, it's started stopping about half an hour into the drying cycle and the clothes come out steaming hot and what feels like wetter than they were after the the washing cycle had stopped. This is our second Bosch washer drier exxcel model with the same fault, the one eventually got replaced by the repair company we had a policy with, after years of replacing this part and that (particularly the control panel), only for it to stop working again from about 1 week later to 6 months.

Hi, this is caused by a clogged vent hose or a bad blower wheel.
The first thing to do is pull the unit out and disconnect the vent hose, and run the unit on dry. Check to see if you have a powerful air flow. if not we will deal with that.
If you do have a good flow of hot air, then the line that leads outside is clogged and likely needs to be cleaned or replaced.
