Condensation build-up in the dryer drum, clothes remain very damp

I cleaned the lint filter with a flexible long handled brush and then blew out loose lint with leaf blower. I also ran brushes all through the exhaust flu pipe and used leafblower in it as well so it is clear. External lint basket is clear. Heating element is working and the exhaust fan is working as well. I'm really stumped on this.

    The clothes remain very damp. When I open the door to check on the results, my glasses fog up, as though I were entering a steamroom. There is condesation on the door when I open it. When I used a brushing system in my exhaust pipe to push through a possible blockage, the rods, which assemble together were wet when I pull them back through.I have a Maytag Performa, not an expensive model.

You deffinately have some sort of blockage in your exhaust vent, most likely in the wall. Check the outside vent on the outside of the house. The air should be blowing pretty hard. hope this helps. Dave www.washermd.com

The dryer is not get hot. It take 2or 3 times ti dry the clothes


You might want to take a flashlight and check the vent and duct from the outside in. Lint will build up in the duct and vent over time. When you turn on the dryer with wet clothes in it, the lint will get damp quickly and it will dry out quickly too which make the dryer cycle shorter but not long enough to dry the clothes. Clean the vent and duct regularly and that should take care of your problem. You can buy brushes for doing this and they are not costly.

Dryer not drying


Not a major appliance expert--but if the situation is as described with hot air out vent but not in the drum where the clothing is it seems to me you have a blockage between the drum and lint filter to where it reaches the vent tube---they do make long flexible brushes for this-----a suggestion: if you have a compressor try forcing air down from the lint filter with the vent tube removed to see if the blockage is there and will clear or not.

A blockage can be a fire hazard so if you do not find it have a tech out.

Maytag dryer will not restart immediately after drying a load. has to cool down


try cleaning out your dryer vent. Remove your lint trap and use a flexible wire brush to clean deep inside, then remove your dryer vent hose and make sure all lint is clean from the dryer side of the vent and the vent hose all the way to the out side vent.
Sounds like it may be clogged with a build up of lint

Why is my Maytag Bravo steam dryer leaving my clothes damp


If there is water in the hose, water is getting in through the vent on the outside. Try cleaning where the flap on the vent rests of lint and build up. Also check that the vent is fastened in the ground. If it's loose, water will seep in around the seal and get down into the hose.

Heating up but not drying clothes


Your vent could be clogged with lint and debris. First remove the lint filter and clean the visible lint. Then run it under warm water and use a soft brush to gently scrub to remove any chemicals from softeners that may be on the filter. While the filter is drying completely, use a dryer brush (available at most stores that carry appliance accessories) and clean out the vent as far as the brush will reach. Next go to where the vent exits your building, lift the flap and clean that area as well.
What happens is that lint builds up over time. The heat and moisture causes it to matt up and it can't be blown out by the mild wind force created by the dryer. The only way to get the matted material out is to clean with a brush and remove it.
I hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

My dryer keeps showing clogged lint filter. I have cleaned the filter and the area under the filter. How do I clean to the exhaust tube? It is leaving my clothes damp, but the dryer is getting very hot...


You should post model number and manufacturer for better answers, but all dryers have an exhaust duct that builds up lint in it over time. I take mine apart every few years and it always has lint built up in the exhaust before it even gets out to the vent pipe. Mine is a Kenmore/Roper, and to take the exhaust duct out you take out two screws from the top under the lint filter door, and then take off the back cover and remove four screws from the duct itself. Then I scrape it out and/or vacuum it with my shop vac. I'm heading away from the computer for the night, but if you post model information I'll take a look tomorrow evening, or one of the other experts here can help you out.
Best wishes, and thanks for using FixYa!

Clothes not drying. Dryer feels hot but clothes remain damp through several cycles.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

My dryer has a build up of water and give an F03 error. What can do to fix it?


have owned the same dryer for about a year and just started having this F03 problem. The condensation drain hose is the soft flexible rubber hose coming out of the back of the dryer and it drains into the same drain as a washer. It's easy to pull the hose off its connector at the back of the dryer and just blow hard into it to make sure there's no lint clogging the hose and reconnect it to the dryer. Next open the panel on the left of the dryer and thoroughly rinse (water only, no soap) clean the two parts behind the door (first is plastic and behind that is the condensation filter which probably is loaded with lint). Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back) can be quite stuck. Use a long pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. Shake the excess water out of the condensation filter and dry off the outsides of two parts. Clean all the lint out the compartment where the parts go. There is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver or a blunt table knife under the panel and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber that you can't see very well where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Use paper towel to get it all out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place as well as the condensation filter and the plastic part. Take out the lint filter (within the dryer drum compartment) and wash it with soap and water. Use an old toothbrush or something to clean the screens thoroughly. Rinse well and dry it completely. Clean all the lint out of the empty compartment. Put all three parts back into the dryer. Clean all lint off the door. Using paper towel moistened with white vinegar clean the two metal sensors in drum compartment on the front wall and lower left. Run the dryer empty but with heat on for a few minutes to make sure all the water is drained out. Now try drying a load. I think it's a good idea to rinse clean the condensation filter at least once a month since it collects a lot of lint. Hope this works for you.

Dryer Door Clouds over with Condensation. I found


Your dryer is not venting to the out-of-doors. Try removing the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and checking it all the way to the outside for an obstruction,i.e. lint build up, water retention, animal nest, etc. Make sure there are no sags if it is a flexible vent tube, no pinch off points, short as possible... most dryers can only have a 10-15 ft. length of straight tubing. A mechanical failure of the blower could also cause the issue.
