Your Questions About Bosch Appliance Repair

Carol asks…

Will a Bosch compact WTV76100 dryer dry a full load from a normal sized dryer in under an hour?

I have a very narrow stairway to get to my basement and the Bosch WTV76100 is one of the only dryers that will fit. We currently have a full sized washer and I’m wondering if the Bosch WTV76100 will dry a full load from the washer in under an hour. Thanks.

James Conley answers:

Nope. That’s why it’s called a compact dryer. If you try to put a full size load in it, you’ll over load the dryer and you could actually do damage to it.

I work for a large company that handles appliance repairs.

Lizzie asks…

How can I unjam a stuck drill bit?

I have a Bosch drill, and can’t remove the drill bit that is in it now. The chuck won’t turn to release it. What do I do?

James Conley answers:

I had this very same issue about a week ago. It is caused by wear of the locking mechanism (You know you push the button on the top to lock the chuck). Basically all that the locking mechanism is is a cog with holes drilled in it, when you press the button it forces a springed pin into the hole hence locking it. When it wears a little you get a groove around these holes and the pin fails to make sufficient contact.

If the drill is still under guarantee take it back to the shop, otherwise you will have to strip the appliance down and remove the chuck (it’s actually very easy), you just need a flat head screwdriver to take out the screws and remove the other plastic pieces(they are all just clip on pieces). The cover will then seperate and you should see that the chuck is attached to the drill casing by more clip ons just lever it free and it lifts out (be careful not to lose the drive shaft). Next thing to do is secure the chuck (the end with the drill bit sticking out) in a vice, get a big pair of grips and just turn, the drill bit will fall straight out. Next step is to put it back together which is just the same only in reverse.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE APPLIANCE UNPLUGGED IF YOU INTEND TO DO THIS AND IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT AT ALL TAKE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL. PLEASE BE AWARE ASWELL THAT DOING THIS WILL INVALIDATE ANY GUARANTEE THAT MAY BE REMAINING ON YOUR PRODUCT AND THAT IF YOU DO DECIDE TO SELF REPAIR, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK AS I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY (DISCLAIMER).

Richard asks…

I want to buy a dishwasher that will get every dish clean WITHOUT my prewashing. Which brand and model?

There is no point in getting a dishwasher (to me) if I have to wash them by hand before I put them in. What is your experience? Which appliance will get off baked on stuff and daily grime? Please include model # as each brand has several. Thanks for your help!

James Conley answers:

Having worked in the office for an appliance repair business, I learned that bits of food get into the mechanics of the machine and cause most of the problems, including eventually not getting dishes clean. I always rinse off or scrape off the dishes before washing in the dishwasher. Never have had to replace or repair one. Except one. Mice got to the wiring. We replaced it with a Bosch. I swear by that brand. It is quiet!!! The mechanics are under the floor of the machine, so you can wash plastics even on the bottom shelf.
