I am assuming you do not have a vent to the outside and you are using one of those little boxes/lint trap devices? You shouldn't be getting water coming out but it is natural to have high humidity hot air coming out (the water has to go somewhere). If you are using one of those traps, I would make sure it is at, or lower than the level of where the hose comes out of the dryer (allowing any moisture to come out and not be trapped in the hose in a low spot).
Remove the lint screen from the dryer. If you are unsure how
to remove the lint trap, refer to your owner's manual, as removal
directions vary among Maytag models.
Use your fingers to remove large chunks of lint from the
lint screen. You should remove the lint from the lint trap after every
Run the lint screen under the faucet. Use hot water and thoroughly wet down both sides.
Scrub both sides of the lint screen with a wet nylon scrub
brush. Rinse the screen again under hot water to remove loosened
buildup. Allow the lint screen to air-dry on a towel before putting it
back inside of the dryer.
Make a paste of powdered laundry soap and warm water into a
small bowl. Use three parts powdered detergent to one part water. Stir
with a spoon until a paste forms.
Dip a soft rag into the paste. Wipe down the entire interior
of the dirty Maytag dryer with the rag and paste. Apply more paste to
the cloth as needed.
Rinse the interior of the dryer with a damp rag to remove the paste.
Dry a load of damp towels in the Maytag dryer. Run a complete dry cycle to remove any residue left inside.
Wipe down the exterior of the dryer with a rag moistened
with all-purpose household cleaner. You can also use the household
cleaner to remove certain stains from the interior of the dryer. Make
sure the cleaner you are using is noninflammable.
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
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...
