Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. I'm reviewing your details now and will reply shortly.

Offhand this should work just fine, if I understand correctly- you connected the "Headphone" out on the Echo to the AUX IN on the Bose and selected AUX, correct?

If so, as a TEST will the Echo play a song if you unplug the cable from the headphone jack?

Sorry, I see you have a DOT not an Echo. So, the same applies- remove the headphone plug from the DOT- does it play a song when you ask it then please?
