Hi,

looking for some help, I have a Bosch Classix 7 tumble dryer model WTE84106GB/48 and recently I noticed that no condensate is being collected in the drawer. Otherwise it appears to work but presumably isn’t drying as quickly or as efficiently as before. The dryer is almost 5 years old now and has been used quite lightly but regularly, no problems with the condensate drawer before.

Can anyone advise? After a quick Google I found some suggestions that there’s usually a hose that needs to be properly connected. Can’t see anything from the front, only the attached photo so I’ll be pulling it out to look at the rear later. I’ve also taken a photo of the part of the condensate drawer where water enters. Can anyone with a similar model let me know if theirs looks the same?

Thanks!

Faulty pump, or blockage in pipe, give the whole thing a good clean removing fluff etc.

Is there a condenser that needs removing and defluffing?
