Bosch WVT126S washer/Dryer

The other day I put a post on regarding my Bosch washer/dryer not drying properly. Well since then the bosch engineer has been and said it was the fan that was blocked with fluff, which he duely cleaned out.

However, since then when it goes onto the drying programme, after about 30 minutes very hot steam is coming from the dispenser drawer and some is dripping onto the floor - it still isn't drying properly. Although I am getting the engineer back, has anyone any ideas as to what the problem is

who cares, its his problem


i guess more fluf / condensor / fan not working.

when i worked for hp i was taught never to clean a condensor. throw it away and fit a new one

I agree it is his problem, but the only reason I was asking for advice, is that I have a member of the family working away all week, and a quick turn around of clean clothes at weekend if important.

My past experience of people on this site has been very helpful and polite!

Shelagh, the problem soons like the condensor bottle is blocked with fluff definitely an engineers job. If he's just cleaned the fan and not flushed the whole system chances are the lazy *******s has just moved the problem futher done the condensing system. It needs to be stripped from the top of the drum / Door seal right back to the air/water return on the back of the main drum. Once thats done you should notice a difference. You need also to check the water vavle and that there is power going to it during the cycle to flush the condensor bottle and reduce the steam, could be a combination of both, would be tricky enough to check but a competent engineer should have it done in about thirty minutes.

Hope this helps ;-}

Thanks very much Laundry Spares, I now know that I will have to wait for the return visit. Because of the situation, was wondering if there was a quick fix solution I could have done myself.
