The hose is clogged. This is a fire hazzard not to mention it takes forever to dry the clothes right?

Try cleaning out the hose ends first. If the entire pipe is clogged its usually easier to replace the hose than clean it.
Also, if the hose is not aluminized or metal of some kind it is a fire hazzerd and needs replacement anyway.

I currently live in the midwest and today has been an extremely humid day (90 degrees+ and 84%+ humidity). I used our LG gas dryer (Model # DLG2241W) earlier this weekend and it worked fine. Tonight, when...


Water in the drum anytime after drying a load of clothes is not normal.

Was the load prior to you having found the condensation fully dried? If not, check for lint in the vent system and make sure that air is coming out of the vent (the flap or louvers on the vent cap should open fully on a short vent line). Even so, this would not account for a small amount of standing water in the drum.

The first thing that came to mind was outside air being drawn in through the vent. If you have air conditioning and a well-sealed house, the warm, moist air hitting the cool drum (in a relatively dry atmosphere) may cause condensation. Check the outside vent to ensure that the vent cap flap (or louvers) is (are) closing all the way. Convection or air flow from the basement to a vent fan in an upper level might cause this.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Why does the air conditioner leak water from behind the unit. My air conditioner is placed in a wall and the back end of the conditioning unit sticks out inside the garage. I have ventilation by...


It is normal for an air conditioner to leak water out the back. This water is actually the humidity being taken out of your house. Being vented out in to the garage is always an issue with condensate water. I have seen some people take a funnel and run a hose outside the garage somewhere. Keep the vent closed. It will be harder to cool the house with the vent open because it lets outside air in to the house.

My furnace isn't heating my house. I was wondering if this was because there is a vent from my cold air duct to the outside thus drawing to much cold air into the system. Should this vent be closed in...


If this vent is connected to the return air duct line back to your furnace I would close it off. The only reason that I can see for having a vent to the outside is if you need more combustion air supply.Thank you.

Water under dryer after use. cleaned exhaust lint in it was wet. should i insulate exhaust tubing. fsminatrea@yahoo.com


Hi

Dryer would be either leaking from vent or due to condensation. The vent may either be blocked. The water is coming from the clothes you have dried in the dryer and it has no where to go.
You need to dismantle the vent and clean it, replace it with new vent. The dryer may now be consuming more time to dry the same load of clothes. By correcting the venting problem you will solve the water problem and shorten your wash day and save on electricity as well.

Another issue is condensation which usually appears on the dryer vent pipe colder climates. As the warm air from the dryer is vented to the outside, it must be protected from the cold temperatures outside. If your dryer vent pipe is not properly insulated, the air that is being vented out will turn into water when it comes into contact with the cold pipe outside. This results in condensation and dripping water. To resolve this, you must insulate your dryer vent pipe along its entire length. This will ensure that the hot air from the dryer does not undergo temperature fluctuations, and no water will leak into the vent pipe. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dryer leaking water


lint is blocking the air from blowing outside and the steam has nowhere to go,you need to clean out your dryer and vent line,go outside and see if the flapper is blowing fully open,if there is a cage on outside vent remove it,if you have a long vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,if your lint filter is on top take the back panel off and remove the duct that the filter slides into,if the filter is inside the dryer,remove front panel and remove the duct and clean it out,also vac out the inside of dryer,if your vac has a blower on it blow the lint off the motor,you'll be surprised how much lint will come off the motor,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire,usually the thermal fuse willpop when dryer gets that backed up

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.

Humidity


An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)
