I have recently acquired a Bosch Exxcel dryer that came

This answer was rated:

Hi! I have recently acquired a Bosch Exxcel dryer that came with the house that we bought. It was working ok but now the filter light keeps flashing with the alert sound and its stops before the cycle is finished. I have cleaned fluff filter several times. I understand that there is exhaust air duct that may be blocked? but not sure how to check it or clean it.
There are no other doors/openings to the front of the machine than the door to the drum.
Any ideas welcome, thanks!

Hi Michael,
I'm trying to find out the exact model for you (like I said, it came with the house we bought and I don't have original documents).
I'm sure its electric.
Hi Its may be inside the door on the rim somewhere, or on the top in the rear of the machine ;-)Tech Michael

On the machine itself all it says is Bosch and Exxcel
Hi Yes!Ok this can be one of two things, either the sensor is bad or the unit is clogged at the duct work. You can check that by disconnecting the vent from the rear of the dryer, First UNPLUG it!Then remove the vent, plug it back in, and run it with nothing on the end of the dryer vent.If the problem seems to have gone away then the vent is clogged somewhere.. But if it remains you will need to replace that vent air flow sensor ;-) I will help on all accounts;-)Also where to best get that part if needed.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate kindly thus far, it won't cost you anything to rate my service to you kindly,There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)But it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise in this field.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank you and have a nice day!Tech Michael
