Nope, it is definitely coming from the dryer. It does vent out of the roof.

How to more dry after completed washing


A washing machine does not really dry clothes. All it does is that it helps remove most but not all water from the clothes by spinning the clothes at a very high speed and the water comes out because of centrifugal force.
To further dry the clothes, you need to buy a clothes dryer. This machine has a heater inside that actually dries the clothes while keep it spinning at a slow speed.
Usually the company that made your washing machine will also have a dryer in the product portfolio.
Hope that helps

Water under and around dryer. Clothes dry but water on floor. The wash not leaking. I the vent and line are not clogged. What is causing the water under dry?


Unless the clothes are dripping, soaking, wet when they're put in the dryer (and it would take them a loooong time to dry if that were the case) there's bound to be a leak of some kind coming from somewhere other than the dryer. Do you have a lavatory or toilet on the other side of the wall behind the dryer? They dryer has no water of its own to leak.

How do you dry on this machine? if you dry on the green, does it completely dry?


The automatic preheat and drying cycle kicks in as the final wash spin is under- way. The system employs a condenser dryer in which the hot air used to dry the clothes is channeled into a drum, instead of being released into the great outdoors via a dry vent hose. Cold water is drawn into the drum at the same time. The two mix, and the result is a condensing process.

The chlothes should be dry. there may be a damp feeling to them but otherwise dry. If your machine is not drying then the element could be going bad, or a thermal cutoff. those would be the easyiest fixes.

The BIG drawback is drying. It takes about 90 minutes to dry a load, and the clothes come out very wrinkled. Because the drum is so small, the clothes don't 'toss' in heated air and don't fluff at all. Clothes also come out stiffer than a regular dryer.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Not getting clothes completely dry. Bad smell


The problem is the water in the vent pipe.You will have to empty the water out of the vent pipe. If the vent is running under the house, crawl under, starting at the closest dip to the dryer and work it out to the exterior. Then use some wire or ties to secure it to the floor joists to keep the dips from reoccurring. If there is water in the pipe, then the dryer can't blow the warm, moist air out of the tumbler. It is the equivalent of trying to dry clothes in a sauna. There is nothing wrong with the dryer, it is working correctly. The problem is the vent.

My electric dryer heats up but doesnt dry the clothes


If your vent hose is more than about ten feet long, your dryer may not have enough pressure to keep the air moving sufficiently to dry the clothes. Is it possible you are simply over loading your dryer?

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.

Water collects under dryer. Clothes dry. floor wet. Vent open.


You said, Water collects under Clothes dry on floor.This sounds like a condenser dryer that needs the water retention bottle empdied or the hose to the bottle is leaking.

Dryer not drying


Check your lint filter. Put it under running water to see if the water goes through it. Chances are it is clogged up. Wash it and put it back. Should do the trick.

Clothes Hot but damp, water out of vent


Is this a combo washer/dryer in 1 unit? water shoud not come out if it is just a dryer. Your air coming out of the back vent hose should be hot. If your clothes comes out of your WASHER damp (more than normal) then your washer is not spin drying good enough. (worn belt, clogged drainage system).
