Bosch Wvt1260 Washer Dryer..no Heat On The Drying Cycle


Recommended Posts

Bosch WVT1260 Washer Dryer..I'm not getting any heat on the drying cycle...

- All 3 thermostats/cut-outs check-out OK.

- Element OK - measures 35 Ohms.

- 240VAC on both sides of heating element.

- Dryer motor not running.

- No 240VAC on heater motor starter capacitor (on either side).

- Water trickle into condensation chamber OK.

Seems like neither the heater element or dryer motor are not being turned on.... does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?

Drum is turning ok, and seems to go through drying cycle, but no heat...

Are there any other temperture cutouts or sensors I should take a look at?

Any experts out there who can point me in the right direction?

If there's full voltage at both sides of heating element it sounds like the heater hasn't got a neutral return. Some elements are switched on by allowing a neutral return and are live otherwise. It should be tested with the socket disconnected by a continuity test meter to be safe. It won' t put the heating element on if it thinks there's still water in the machine.
