Question about Dryers
My tumble dryer has started leaking from underneath today and not drying the clothes. it is also blowing the electrics
Well this sure is an interesting problem. First of all a dryer certainly should not be leaking anything. I would suggest that the "leak" is actually condensation from the exhaust not getting to the outside which would tell me that the dryer exhaust duct is plugged. This could also cause the electrical problem you mentioned. Turn on the dryer then go outside to where the dryer exhaust comes out of the house and see if there is warm moist air coming out. If not, disconnect the exhaust duct from the rear of the dryer and see if there is air blowing out of the dryer. If there is, then you know that the duct is plugged some where between the dryer and the outlet. Clear the obstruction and/or replace the duct and try the dryer again. Please remember to disconnect the power prior to removing any access panels on an appliance. Good luck, and let me know how things work.
