There is a hole for the water from the condensor to the water collector. make sure it is not blocked - this is common to happen.
take small panel off at back of machine and you can see the water collector. it has a small pump mounted on it which takes the water up to the top of the machine.
connbect this pump independently to mains and make sure it is pumping

    Small hole, more like a slot on the left hand lower side of the water collector (on the back of the tumble dryer!). Probably best to remove the condenser from the front and get your arm inside and clean all the wet fluff from the other side of the water collecter to avoid it blocking again!

Tumble dryer eeps tripping electric


Had same problem found a lot or water at the rear of the condensing element at bottom front of dryer because the float at the rear was blocked with fluff resulting in water being flicked up by the fan onto the heating element and tripping the electric. Cleaned out float compartment and been fine up til now. For a quick fix (UNPLUG FIRST) remove the condensing element at the bottom front of tumble dryer(behind the drop down cover) then carefully tip the dryer forward and to the left so that it practically balancing on the front left corner, you will probably get a fair bit of water come out so have some towels ready, then dry as much as you can see inside the compartment then replace element and should be good for quite a while until you have more time to clean out the rear compartment. Hope this helps, let me know.

Make sure your dryer vent is clean. This can get clogged with lint over a period of time. Make sure to check both inside and outside vents

I have an indesit IS70 SC tumble dryer which is very noisy. The noise appears to be coming from the air intake fan and sounds a bit like a piece of cardboard against bicycle wheel spokes. Any ideas?


Dryers are not hard to take apart.
There is possible something caught inbehind things.
Make sure to unplug the dryer first. Then proceed to take it apart carefully noteing thing as you do it, so that you can reasseblem

Not drying clothes


If the unit is heating properly which it should pull around 25 amps when heating , and the unit is tumbling it is 100% an exhaust issue , either a kinked duct behind the unit , a ball of lint stuck in the duct , lint build up outside in vent , or water in under ground duct. If you find the clog it will be FIXED!
Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have to use my indesit condensing tumble dryer about 3 times to get 1 load to dry


Hi.
Make sure the fluff filter and water tray are clean and empty.
Also make sure it is on High heat setting, and set the correct time.

Indesit condenser tumble dryer water light always on even though container empty


Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...
