Check your Vent. It's clogged or is too long...or restricted somewhere. Vents are critical...

    It is definitely...vent related. I had the same problem. My vent was both too long...and somewhat restricted. These blowers are very small, and won't move air very far. You have to keep that in mind when installing appliances Like this...

Water under and around dryer. Clothes dry but water on floor. The wash not leaking. I the vent and line are not clogged. What is causing the water under dry?


Unless the clothes are dripping, soaking, wet when they're put in the dryer (and it would take them a loooong time to dry if that were the case) there's bound to be a leak of some kind coming from somewhere other than the dryer. Do you have a lavatory or toilet on the other side of the wall behind the dryer? They dryer has no water of its own to leak.

The empty container/pc light comes on after approx 5 mins of drying cycle even when the container is empty


at the back of the dryer there should be a plastic tube from top to bottom ( this is the overflow pipe from the water container that needs to be emptied after each use, if the container is allowed to fill up, the water gts picked up by this pipe and collects at the base of the machine, stupid idea, i know) undo the clip at the bottom and empty the tube, also, with the tube still of, tilt the dryer and if loads of water comes out where u disconnected the tube you just need to get the water out. re connect the tube and bobs your uncle. hope this helps. p.s u may want to remove the top cover ( 2 screws ) and blow down the tube to make sure it aint blocked. when re fitting the tube, dont be scared of bending it to get it back into the slot where it tucks into the machine

Miele T358C dryer. water not being pumped out of the sump??


TRY THIS:
TRY THIS:
In some cases cleaning the condenser out and drying the unit well will allow the unit to function again. Once a month you need to empty the condenser unit, it is normal for there to be some water in the tubes when you do this, you then have to flush the condenser by pouring water through it in either your sink or tub. Make sure that there is plenty of room around the drier for air circulation; and empty the water container often or reconfigure your pluming arangement to reduce the water left in the container. The circuitry of this unit it sensitive to high humidity and can cause the unit to not function properly. So with condensing dryers you have to work on keeping them clean. Let me know how it goes. Later :?) DRRXR


TIP OF THE DAY--
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.

Condenser tumble dryer water problem


Took advice...isolated from electricity supply...removed left side panel (side with condenser tank), to access the pump. Cleaned it all out (masses of water and grey lint!) and put it all back together again. Bit fiddly getting the panel back on...no screws left over...result!

All working great now.

Simpler solution maybe...There is a 'trap door' that can be removed, which gives access to the area where the water and lint accumulate.

1) Isolate from electricity supply.
2) Take out the condenser unit at the bottom LHS front of the machine (routine maintenance).
3) Underneath of where the condenser unit usually lives..at the back...reach in and open the 'trap door'. This needs a flat head screwdriver and you must release the two plastic clips holding the trap door.
4) You can now access the area where the water and lint accumulate...which makes the 'float' give a false container full fault.
5) Clean out this water and gunk regularly (once a month)!

Hoping this will avoid taking the side panel off again...

Condenser Dryer Still Filling Room With Moisture


all dryers produce moisture. thats what hapens when you heat wet cloths up. the dryers job is to remove the moisture to dry. thats how the automai]tic cycles work by deteting the moisture in the exhaust. i will say there is nothing wrong with your dryer. only thing i dont understand is the containers of water?
