Question about Whirlpool LEQ8000JQ Electric Dryer
Where is it coming from? I dumped it today and there was about a gallon of water in it. Clothes had been taking forever to dry and I wondered why....
Please help me understand...
Your vent line is clogged somewhere. When a dryer exhausts air, it also exhausts moisture with it. If the dryer vent line is clogged anywhere, the moisture has no where to go but build up inside the vent line. An easy test to determine a clog is to remove the vent hose form the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load as you normally do. The air escaping the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm. If so, you have a clog somewhere from where the dryer vent hose leaves the back of the dryer to where it exits your home. You need to inspect the vent about once per season to make sure it is not clogged with lint or rodents. Leaving a dryer in this condition will cause it to overheat to the point of failure. If the air is weak, you have a clog INSIDE the dryer. If you have questions, or need further assistance please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
