Bosch Dryer Error Codes

Bosch Dryer Error Code E02

The E02 error code is your Bosch dryer’s way of letting you know that it’s time to give the fluff filter some much-needed attention. This filter is a vital component that prevents lint and fluff from escaping into the dryer’s exhaust system, ensuring safe and efficient operation.

Why Does the Fluff Filter Get Blocked?

Over time, as you use your Bosch dryer, lint and fabric softener residue can accumulate on the fluff filter. Fabric softener, in particular, can leave a sticky residue that traps lint and creates a barrier. This not only affects the dryer’s performance but can also pose a fire hazard if left unaddressed.

Cleaning the Fluff Filter:

The solution to the E02 error code is simple: regular maintenance. Here’s how to clean the fluff filter:

  1. After Each Drying Cycle: Make it a habit to clean the fluff filter after every drying cycle. This ensures that it stays free from any residue or lint buildup.
  2. Locate the Filter: The fluff filter is usually located inside the door rim or on the dryer’s front panel. Consult your Bosch dryer’s manual if you’re unsure about its location.
  3. Remove and Clean: Carefully remove the fluff filter. It’s usually a fine mesh or screen. Gently clean it with a soft brush or rinse it under running water to remove any residue and lint.
  4. Dry Thoroughly: Ensure the filter is completely dry before reinserting it into the dryer. A wet filter can collect more lint and residue.
