Hirundo washer/dryer fills with water during the dry cycle so clothes come out hot and soaked what could be the cause?


Moister in the dryer:

This means that the moist air is not escaping correctly and that is why it is taking so long to dry your clothes - if they dry at all.
a good start at cleaning out lint blocked areas, I suggest go to the back of the dryer and take off the vent pipe or hose and check things out with a flashlight. Clean out all the lint and dust you can, even use a vacuum cleaner on it. Make sure the vent pipe is completely clear of any obstructions.Non-rigid ventshas much worse air flow than smooth piping, so you might want to upgrade tosmooth piping.
Once you have all the lint and dust cleaned out of the dryer, go to where the dryer vents outside. Again, clean the area thoroughly. There is usually a trap door that opens when the dryer air is on and closes when it is not operating. It should be completely clear of lint and opening smoothly.
Also, look into the exhaust area on the dryer carefully to see if there is a hole or gap in the dryer's internal air ducting. Without the vent pipe connected and with no clothes in the dryer, start it and let if run for a few seconds and make sure there is strong air flow from the exhaust port. You should feel it strongly on your hand.
Re-connect the vent pipe and start the dryer again. Feel all around the bottom to see if any air is blowing out from under the bottom. This would indicate there is a break or gap in the dryer's internal ducting. If you do feel air, you will need to call a service technician to see if it can be repaired. If your dryer is very old, there could be a rust hole in the duct.
In conclusion Cause ·Poor venting is a common reason why water might leak into a clothes dryer. Since the dryer works to expel moisture, it is important that the dryer's vents are properly installed so that the humidity can escape.
Effect ·If the humidity in the dryer is trapped, it will eventually turn to water. This will lead to poor drying results or longer drying times, depending on the amount of leakage.
Prevention/Solution ·Faulty dryer venting can be prevented by making sure that the humidity is directed outdoors. Also, vents should be cleaned of lint and other debris before each load so that water can readily escape. Taking these precautions can ensure that the moisture will meet dry, open air.

Tip

Clothes dryer taking to long to dry clothes


If your dryer is taking a much longer time to dry clothes here is a simple tip. Remove the vent tubing and more than likely it will be full of dense lint. Dryers made these days have a safety device that will shut off the heat if the temperature gets too hot inside the dryer. In most cases when the vent tube is blocked the dryer will not even heat up for you making you think your dryer has broke down. Before you go as ask questions about the operations why the heat does not work, inspect and clean if necessary. In most cases the dryer will work normally again for you. Oh yes another hint. The vent tube should be four feet or less in length with out no bends or elbow fittings with the exception of the connection directly to the dryer. Longer vent tubes will give you grief every year for they will need to be cleaned that often

Not drying. Takes 2+ hours and clothes are damp


The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

My clothes are hot, but still wet. I've run the dryer on every dryer cycle option, and the clothes aren't dry. What could it be?


Them dryers are notorious for having a plastic blower wheel which gets loose and won't allow for correct air flow. here are some repair photos: HERE

Washer location


Not advisable. Garage area would need to stay above freezing temp., and dryer performance will be poor at best if intake air is below 50 F. If you are not doing a lot of laundry, you can use a combo unit. (washer and dryer in one unit. LG makes one, others must also) They are slow, as the dryer is only 120 volt, and dryer does not work well with over a half load, but they also do not require an outside vent, and only require room for one unit, instead of a seperate washer and dryer.

Dryer not getting enought airflow to outside dryer vent


Normally it is six feet and not more than two bends, if it has been doing this you have buildup in the ducts and need to clean the ducts. I would suggest you make a new hole to address the problem. Also if you have a plastic pipe sometimes they develope a flap those blocks or slows the air down you can’t see this unless it is in dry mode. Any blockage will slow the air down allowing particles to drop down and gradually plug the vent, if the bends are too tight it to will slow down air flow and cause the same thing I suggest you cut the length of the hole to stop this problem if you can, it is not hard to do and I can give you the instructions if you post here.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Splendide Comb-o-matic 2000 how do you vent it to the outside


Use 2.5" plastic pipe & elbow to replace aluminum elbow & hose with spring inside. Air velocity is higher, lint blows out without collecting.
I used wood router to remove part of exhaust connector on rear of dryer to better fit elbow. Elbow interior was smoothed to prevent lint sticking. Elbow was mounted with silicone sealant and 2 screws. Pipe was glued to elbow as normal glued pipe connection. Pipe end was cut even with side of dryer.
After Spendide was installed in RV, a union was stuck in from outside RV. Union slides on to pipe without sealant so Splendide can be removed from RV. Union better fills outside vent fitting than bare 2.5" plastic pipe. Temporary seal aroung union was made of urethane foam scraps, common shipping stuff from a computer monitor box. After 2 years of temporary, the foam is now considered permanent.
Original problem was constant lint problems in hose and slow drying. With pipe, not hose, lint is rarely cleaned and drying is much faster.

Special water hose needed?


i dont know of of a"special hose". are we talking about water inlet (hot and cold) hoses??drain hose??? or a vent hose for dryer???
1. stainless steel non-bursting fill hoses are available in up to 6' lentgh's
2. drain hose can be extended if need be, i would make it as short of an extension as needed, and use a hose of atleast the existing diameter and make sure that it wont, bent or pinch off after putting into drain pipe
3. dryer venting should be a solid aluminum 4" pipe as shosrt as possible with least amount of elbows needed.
all available at a quaitly home improvemnet store/ hardware store
