ENERGY SAVING TIPS
OPERATING
To save energy, time and money, Bosch recommends
the following:
•
Follow the fabric care labels on the clothing.
•
Avoid very small loads. When only one or two items
need drying, add a few similar items to improve
drying efficiency.
•
Do not mix heavyweight
•
Do not dry wool or fabrics with a wool content
O
Always spin dry the laundry in the washer at the
highest recommended speed for the fabric type.
The highest spin speed will result in a dryer load and
shorten the drying time and amount of energy
required to dry the load.
TIPS
and lightweight
clothing.
O
Spin dry delicate washing before tumble drying.
•
O
Load the dryer properly. Do not exceed the maximum
load (see CYCLE SELECTION CHART).
Do not dry fabrics that do not allow the free passage
of air (for example, GORETEX)
•
Do not dry delicate fabrics such as, silk, synthetic net
curtains, etc.
•
Always clean the lint filter after each use of the dryer.
BEFORE
USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
Before beginning to use your dryer for the first
time:
2. Wipe the interior of the drum with a damp cloth.
3. Thoroughly
inspect the dryer for cosmetic damage.
1. Check to make sure that the voltage on
which the dryer is to operate is the same as
shown on the rating plate.

Moisture
Sensor
Frost
Occasionally the moisture sensors will need cleaning,
due to a build-up of a fine layer of lime scale on the
inside of the drum. This build-up of lime scale can be
easily removed by wiping the sensors, the metal inserts
in the paddles, and the inside of the drum with a soft
cloth soaked in vinegar (use white vinegar).
See Figure 10.
Figure
Protection
(WTL models
only)
The WTL models, since they remove moisture by
condensing the water out of the air and then pumping
the water to drain, should never be installed in an area
subject to freezing. Also, if the dryer is to be transported
where it would be subjected to freezing the dryer must
be completely emptied of water before transporting.
10.

Grounding
Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk
of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance
for the electric current. This appliance is equipped with
a cord having an equipment grounding conductor and
a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Cord
The Bosch dryer comes with a 4-wire power supply cord
pre=installed. This cord fits a 4=wire receptacle as shown
in the upper section of Figure 11.
Improper connection of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check
with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in
doubt as to whether the dryer is properly grounded.
If your receptacle is a 3-wire receptacle, as shown in the
lower section of Figure 11, a 3-wire "Dryer Cord" must
be purchased locally. The 4=wire cord must then be
removed and the 3=wire cord installed in its place, as
instructed in following section.

The WTL 5410, electric condensation dryer, dries by
condensing the moisture from the dryer air and then
pumping this condensate out of the dryer.
Venting
The WTL 5410 must have its condensate
The WTA 3510, electric vented dryer, is intended to be
vented to the outdoors. To prevent build-up of moisture
and accumulation of lint indoors, as well as to maintain
maximum drying efficiency, it is recommended that the
Bosch WTA 3510 be vented to the outdoors.
connected to a suitable drain. See Step 5, Condensate
Hose Connection,
in the following section titled
INSTALLATION.
Ductwork
Four-inch (approx. 100 mm) diameter ducting should be
used. Use either rigid metal or flexible metal ducting
material. DO NOT use non-metal duct with this dryer.
Exhaust ducts should be as straight as possible.
Exhaust ducting longer than recommended can extend
drying time, can collect lint and may effect dryer
performance. Joints should be secured with duct tape.
DO NOT use screws to secure joints as lint can collect
on the screws. See Step 4, Exhaust Duct, in following
section titled INSTALLATION
for recommended routing
and duct length calculations.
