Re: dryer has water in the vent

Connie, either your vent hose or the vent leading outside your home is severly clogged. This is the only way you will get water in your vent hose. If you are vented to the roof, have someone check the screen up there. back

Water coming out of back of dryer

Is either an issue with your ignition, gas system or vents. Unplug it. Are your vents clogged with lint? Lint fires are always a threat, if you find a lot of lint have it cleaned professionally.

Maytag model #: med5770tq0 won't dry. Please help

Dear Emily.
Several problems.
First, did this dryer ever work properly hooked up as it is?
I mean hooked to the roof event?
If it used to work just fine, then I suspect the vent to the roof is clogged with lint and is not allowing the heat to escape.
If it never did work right,(for example: it is new to us) then I'd venture dryers are not supposed to vent their hot air that far away, they do not have a strong enough blower to push that air that distance.
Then, you might try to find another place to vent the hot air, with a total distance of only 10 feet from the dryer, even if you only vented it while you were actually drying clothers.
I doubt if the last item is for you, but I have sometimes seen where the washing machine did not spin all the water out of the clothes, and then the dryer needed all day to get the clothes dry.
Be blessed.

The dryer is getting the clothes hot, but not drying. What causes this problem? Thanks

venting issue, you can disconnect vent tube and run a load of clothes if it dries then it is the vent tube, if not then the dryer will need disassembled and all the lint clean out from the lint trap to the end of the dryers vent tube, if is recommended to clean the lint out of the inside of the dryer at least once a year, varying on usage, and the lint screen each time before/after use. Hope this helps Tim

My dryer runs for several minutes, then starts beeping and an error code E: 01 is displayed. I've tried unplugging it for 30 minutes, but that was no help. Any ideas?


This means that the dryer is not able to exhaust correctly. Often times this is caused by kinked or blocked vent behind the dryer. If that looks ok, the vent in the wall may need to be cleaned. In this case or in most a professional dryer vent cleaner would be needed to clean the dryer vent.

One last thing you can check is the lint screen. On Bosch dryers the lint filter will become clogged from the dryer sheets. Remove the lint filter and run water through it. If water runs through, the lint filter is good.

I know this unit well and can assists you with any repair related question you have.

When I open the dryer door, there is water standing in the bottom of the dryer and there is water on the drum. It has a musty smell in the dryer. What is causing this?

The vent hose is clogged , also there may be lint clogged inside the dryer. Disconnect the hose and see if you can feel hot air coming out, if you can then it is in the vent hose. If not then you will have to take the dryer apart and clean all the lint out

I checked the connection of the dryer and nothing is clogged....the clothes take 3 hours to dry a small load...the dryer feels addition it appears there isn't that much lint on the lint screen...

check your dryer duct hose and might be clogged, some cases the duct fills with water and causes dry time to take longer.....on other cases the vent might be clogged and the heat sensor detects that it is hot enough and shuts down the heater element.................
make sure all vents are unclogged.............

dryer duct hose is in the back of the dryer and is connected usually with a duct clamp or tie strap.........disconnect and if i were you replace with a new one.... do not rinse out and put will cause a build up of lint around the inside of duct hose.....the water acts like a glue trying to collect all the lint it could...and eventually it will clog the hose..............just replace with a new one......check the vent were the hot air discharges out of usually outside or rooftop........most vents are covered with a screen or a plastic/sheetmetal flap.....make sure the flap can move.also make sure that it is uclogged and has good airflow...........................

good luck if anything just message
a feed back would be good if this helps...

Dries very slow lint is clean have to run and run to dry

make sure the outlet tubes are also clean, also rinse off the lint screen with hot water, softener will clog it and not allow propper air flow, the water wil bead up on the screen if this is true, just keep rinsing till water flows freely

A week ago we bought a Kenmore Model #88042 dryer. Why does not the book that comes with the dryer say that condensation is very prominent, and the lint does not all go into the lint filer, but all over...

If you experience heavy condensation inside the dryer, and have lint accumulating inside the drum, you have a clog somewhere in your exhaust ducting. Since this is a recently purchased (new?) dryer, I'm assuming the clog is EXTERNAL to the dryer.

A quick test that you can try to determine where the problem may be is to remove the exhaust ducting from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a normal load of wash. If the air flow from the back of the dryer is forceful and warm (about 140 degrees F), and the clothes dry normally, the problem isn't the dryer. The problem is in the ducting from the point where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. If this is the case, you will need to inspect the entire length of the ventilation to ensure there are no kinks, clogs, sags, or significant bends that can cause choke points for lint to accumulate. If left in this condition, the dryer will eventually overheat to the point of failure.

If the air is weak and hardly moving at all, you will need to inspect your air blower assembly inside the dryer to ensure the fan is not obstructed and the ducting is not clogged.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My kenmore Elite Dryer model he3 starts but there is no heat, what is up with that and what can I do to fix it since my warranty is over.

Most dryers stop heating due to a clogged vent or duct. Check your duct hose inside the house for lint/water clogs. You will have to remove it to do this. Then check the outside vent for lint clogs and make sure that its opening properly (louvered vents). If thats not the case, call up Sears and use your warranty.

Dryer takes too long to dry a load

Have you checked the lint screen? pull the lint screen out and remove the lint then hold flat and pour water on it. Does the screen hold the water or does the water flow through? If it holds water, then you must actually clean the film that has coated the screening material. Use dish soap and scrub lightly then rinse clean. and check again.
