Bosch Dryer WTL5400, possible door latch?

5 posts in this topic

Bosch Dryer WTL5400, I could use a service manual becuase i need to know how to replace a door latch.  I haven't actually scene the machine, the customer said that he can get the dryer to operate by messing with the door latch?  Is it as simple as removeing the outside portion of the door boot gasket?  Once again I clueless on what parts to order and how to replace the parts.  Thanks.

Dang !   you get all the rough calls, this is a condenser dryer (non-vented), seems to me they got some kinda elaborate mechanical button/latch for opening the door. Getting at the mechanism involves removing a bunch of stuff on the front, you won't have any parts for that anyway.

 

here's the manual: http://appliantology.org/files/file/318-bosch-dryer-wta35-wtl54/

I called the customer back and he didn't want to spend more than $200.00 for the total repair.  I told him that it was unlikely I could do it for that. I wouldn't mind learning more about the machine and that repair, but I don't have that extra kind of time.   thanks again for the input!

If buddy's gonna toss it, a good one to pick up - you can learn all you want about it then. Since it is a condensor dryer, probably a good market for them and can be resold

I'm  with Kdog.....I will tell the customer , that if he is going to purchase a new unit, have the delivery guys put the item out front and I will pick it up before the day is done........ I will take the item to the shop and dissassembly it and see what  makes it tick..........................If it is repairable for an economical price it will be fixed and sold..... ........If not, it will be stripped of the failure prone parts and then recycled.. :sweat: ..........An item like this would fit the bill of an R.V.  or a small apt......
