TC7103W - electric dryer

When my dryer has been on for 2 mins the water reservoir light comes on. I have taken the condenser and water container out and cleaned everything. The light remains on even though there is no water in there. I have checked that the floor is level as I have just moved it to a new location.

We have the same issue and i have turned the machine upside down today to find there is a condenser valve inside the connecting pipe that connects to the reservoir tank to allow it to fill. This valve has come adrift as an 'O' ring has come off of the end. I need to source a new 'O' ring from a hardware store or DIY store, which should solve the problem.

You'll need a voltmeter to properly diagnose most of these. 1)Check to see if you're getting the right amount of power to the dryer 2)Check the Heating element
3)Check the fuse (if any)
4)Check the Thermostat2_bing.gif

My miele condenser dryer has developed a problem. The water collection container light comes on within minutes of starting the dryer (obviously, I have emptied the container). I have cleaned the...

it could be fluff blocking or jamming the condensate pump, can you hear the pump running? access to the pump is through a small service panel at the back. it is hard to get the pump out there is a spring latch to releaseit which is hard to find until you know where it is.

There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB

Bosch tumble dryer

I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.

Condenser tumble dryer water problem

Took advice...isolated from electricity supply...removed left side panel (side with condenser tank), to access the pump. Cleaned it all out (masses of water and grey lint!) and put it all back together again. Bit fiddly getting the panel back screws left over...result!

All working great now.

Simpler solution maybe...There is a 'trap door' that can be removed, which gives access to the area where the water and lint accumulate.

1) Isolate from electricity supply.
2) Take out the condenser unit at the bottom LHS front of the machine (routine maintenance).
3) Underneath of where the condenser unit usually the back...reach in and open the 'trap door'. This needs a flat head screwdriver and you must release the two plastic clips holding the trap door.
4) You can now access the area where the water and lint accumulate...which makes the 'float' give a false container full fault.
5) Clean out this water and gunk regularly (once a month)!

Hoping this will avoid taking the side panel off again...
