    after removing water at the bottom behind filter it is working for a little while but the water comes back.

    I have checked both flexible pipes and they are not blocked ... it's looked like the pump is not working ...

    what should I try now?

Hi,

I want to first make sure that your dryer is serviced up. so i want you to do these steps.
Most of the problems will be resolved doing these......

As clothes are tumble dried, they drop fibres. Most of this fluff is trapped by the lint filter and this needs to be checked and cleaned regularly. Lint also builds up in the vent pipe and around the electric motor in the rear of the dryer.

1.clean lint filter

Wait until the dryer cools, open the door and lift out the lint filter.
Gently brush off lint using your fingers.
On many models, the filter may also be washed. Check your manual for instructions.
If the filter is damaged in any way, you should replace it.

2.Vacuum area where lint filter sits:

The area where the lint filter sits should be vacuumed .
Remove the lint filter, and use a narrow vacuum nozzle to remove dust and lint from the fitting.

3.Clean inside the tumble dryer:

1. Make sure the dryer is cool, switch it off and unplug it.
2. Unscrew the retaining screws on the back panel, and lift it off. Vacuum the blower area.
3. Also vacuum around the vent pipe connection.
4. Replace the back panel and refit all the screws.


4.Check tumble drythe tumble dryer bip and - 8d2299a.jpge:
8d2299a.jpgWait for the dryer to cool. Unplug the vent hose and inspect its entire length for snags in the pipe.
Make sure the vent is not obstructed on the outside wall, and fit a flap or screen to keep out small animals.
If your vent pipe is punctured or damaged, you should replace it.



To avoid dryer problems,
Make sure the dryer is level and does not rock, and consult the manufacturer's instructions for the maximum weight of clothing to dry at one time. Also, make sure clothes have been spun-dry before putting them into the dryer.

This is just initial help,
Post your comments about how things turned up, Ill be giving suggestions based on your reply........

Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Hi,

Your exact model is not available in my region, however. most LG dryers have a water collector bottle/container at the top end of the unit. If you unit has such a component, might it be that this is the one that needs emptying? Additionally, there is a pump/sump at the very bottom of the unit. Normally this is where the sensor is that triggers the alarm/indicator "empty water". It could be that the sump is full of water or it is simply very damp in that area that the sensors are reading wrong. It is not a filter problem.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    For some reason, I could not find any technical documentation for your model, the LG TD700 CE. Related to this a couple of ideas:


    • pls verify model at the name plate/tag at the rear of the unit (some LGs are actually rebranded Zenith or GoldStar products);

    • pls post back whether the unit is pure electric or combo gas/electric;

    • pls post back your general location.

    • Incidentally, there is normally a reset button at the rear (sometimes at the bottom) of most dryers, pls try this or unplug for about half an hour.
    Additionally, you may want to check:


    • moisture sensor, try removing one of the connectors and making sure it is not touching any metal part of the dryer. This should make the "empty water" not to come on. On the other hand, shorting/jumping the two connectors should make the "empty water" to come on and/or run the bottom pump;

    • thermistor or thermal cutoff. This is inline with the wiring of the pump motor, if this is open, the pump will not run. A test is to short/jumper the two connector of the thermistor or thermal cutoff. If the control board and pump are OK, then the motor should run, removing the jumper should make the pump stop;

    • pump motor, checking for the supply voltage;

    • control board, visually inspect for any burnt marks, cold solder or anything out of the ordinary.
    This of course would require familiarity of electrical components/circuitry, safe procedures when working with electrical/live appliances and use of a DVM (or a continuity tester/voltmeter). It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    Appreciate your post/comment back. Based on this, the model is TD-C700E, most likely marketed in Australia and it is a 7kg Condensor Dryer. And as initially posted, you would need a continuity tester to check the components with particular attention to the thermistor, water sensor and drain pump,

    Incidentally, perhaps it would be more convenient for your need to either:


    • get hold of a service manual that would illustrate checkpoints and pictorial diagram; or

    • consult:

Hi i have a two day old beko dcu 7230 tumble dryer the water tank and clean filter light keeps coming on even though they are clean and empty is my product faulty.


not too many dryers w water tank, but the air filter light maybe due to a lack of air movement. If you have replaced an old machine, then your problem may be with the existing exhaust and duct work, you'll need to clean them out thoroughly to know. You may have to go outside or up on the roof as sometimes these also have trap doors that become stuck.

Hi, My candy CIC60 tumble dryer has stopped drying and the empty water light is constantly on. The timer works. I have cleaned all filter,emptied water, checked for loose wires and I can not see a problem....


Tumble dryers are really not around my neck of the woods however I have studdied them just in case they do begin to show up around here. What turns on the light and kills power to the dryer when the water tank is full? A float switch. I bet that float switch is stuck. Probably something simple like that.

I need to clean my filter on my beko tumble dryer!


I usually just stick the shower on it to clean out all the bits of fluff that gets gathered in there, but remember to give the inside of that hatch u brought it out of with some kitchen towel before u put the condenser filter back in.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40


There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB
