How to Troubleshoot an E01 on a Bosch Dryer


Bosch dryers come with a variety of available features, such as energy use sensors, stainless steel drums, steam options, specific item cycles, quiet motor, three-way venting and variable temperature and time settings. While the Bosch dryer can likely be expected to work well with normal care, maintenance and cleaning, error codes will appear on the display panel if a problem arises. One such error code is "E01," which indicates a ventilation problem. This may be resolved through some troubleshooting efforts by the owner.

Things You'll Need

  • Towel(s)
  • Fan
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Water
  • Turn off and unplug the Bosch dryer.

  • Clean out the lint filter inside the dryer door by removing any lint with your fingers and discarding. This task should be performed prior to every dryer use.

  • Clean the lint filter with warm, soapy water and rinse well. Air dry completely before replacing the filter back inside the Bosch dryer.

  • Locate the exhaust hood outside the house. Clean it out using some old towels to remove lint, dust and dirt. Make sure the exhaust duct is not crushed or damaged and repair as necessary.

  • Increase the ventilation in the area where the dryer is located by opening a door or window or running a fan in the same room.

  • Restore power to the dryer. If the error code appears again, turn the dryer off for 30 minutes before restoring power.

  • Contact Bosch for assistance if the error code persists.
