New Bosch dryer does not get hot

Posted by maia10312 (My Page) on

Im wondering if this is how the machine is supposed to be. I know they say they use less heat and more air volume to dry clothes, but i cant imagine the extra time its taking is saving any energy. It seems to be only getting a smidge hotter than warm and if i put in a large load the outside dries-after quite a while-and if there is a towel etc in there somewhere, it doesnt dry... anyone else have this experience/is this how its supposed to work/anything i can do??

Is it the compact Bosch comparable to the US Axxis or a larger model?

Did you clean your vent pipe ALL THE WAY to the outside before you had your new dryer installed? I am just wondering if it's not getting hot because the vent pipe is clogged with lint.

My dryer is always on the "more dry" option. The lowest option seems to leave a little bit of dampness in the pockets.
