This answer was rated:

I have a Bosch classix condenser tumble dryer. As of yesterday when I turn it on I get two bleeps and it won't switch on. It did need a new door handle (the third in two years!) and that has been replaced. Help!

Please advise the model number of the Dryer your having issues with.

What lights are showing on the control panel?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
This model only has two lights. One that indicates the 'low heat' setting and the other is the Start/Stop. Both are working.

Is the start stop light flashing when it beeps or does it just go off after you get the two beeps?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
If I turn the knob to the required setting it automatically flashes. If I then press the start button it gives two bleeps and continues flashing.

Ok it doesnt flash say 4 times wait a second then flash again, its just continious flashing?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No it's just a constant flash......which I think is the norm.

In that case its not in a valid state, which suggests its not detecting the door is closed.

Have you tried closing the door and holding you hand on the door while pressing start?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I've tried shutting the door hard, I've pressed it slowly and firmly, I've closed it gently. I've sprayed a bit of WD40 on the metal prongs on the actual door. Nothing seems to affect it.

It suggests the interlock has failed, which engages the catch when the washer starts.

A new interlock costs around £30 from here, though it doesnt reference the /38 variant it will fit.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Is this something that is easy to fit?

Yes, its no harder than a washing machine component (20 mins effort).

Ok - well that's great. Thank you. I'll order the new part via your link.
