Check that the dampener in the vent deflector on the outside of the building to ensure it is closing when the dryer is not in use.

I ran the perfect steam option on my Electrolux dryer and ran the program but now the water continues to spray inside the dryer. How do I shut it off?


Thank you for your post, Travis!
I see that you are having a continuous spray of water inside of your Electrolux dryer from the Perfect Steam option. It appears that you could have an issue with your water valve or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If this does not correct your issue I would suggest having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any future issues. Best of luck! -Matt

Wont drain


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

The water that drains from the airconditioner to outsied is clogged up and not draining how can i unclogg it myself?


I can tell you a few stories of my own - I've had this problem myself and water will eventually build up and leak inside your house - you don't want it to leak on your electrical outlet ! I do not know how long you had this unit or how old is it, but these things can happen over time due to dirt, dust or other foreign objects or rust. Some AC units have fan spinning and picking up the water and spraying it on evaporators, most of it should be evaporated - only excess humidity will cause dripping - on older models water should drip outside through an opening or two at the back of the AC unit.

Make sure your AC is not level, and is tilted about 20 degrees outside, allowing the water to flow outside the AC unit.

You will need to find a way to access your AC unit from outside, locate the areas where the water drips normally, you should see openings, using an object (paper clip, pipe cleaner, etc.) try to insert it in the holes back and forth until you dislodge whatever is blocking the hole - be careful not to damage the very deliate fins at the back of your AC.

if still no water drips then take a ladder and climb up and you shuold be able to see from the inside there should be a slope or container where water accumulates before dripping out, is there ANY water there ? If you mostly see water farther away then your AC is probably not tilted enough to allow water to flow out.

If there is neither any water towards the outer edge where it drips, nor inside, farther away nor dripping inside your home, then it is probably being all evaporated or your humidity level is under control. The more your air has moisture the more water will be produced inside your AC, any excess moisture will accumulate inside your AC - if your AC manages to evaporate all of it, and no leaks inside, good for you, I wouldn't touch it.

Another tip - when you shut down your AC, do you hear swishing and unusual sounds of water ? that could mean accumulated water not being evacuated - Although it IS normal for some stagnant water to remain in your AC - do not worry about that, as long as it doesn't leak inside.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...


it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Water is running out from beneath the dryer


If you have water leaking from a dryer, then you have a clog in your exhaust ventilation ducting somewhere. If the lint is allowed to accumulate to the point of clogging, the warm moist air condensates inside the dryer and ventilation causing more lint to accumulate due to the moisture. This condition will only get worse and needs to be remedied as soon as possible. Water inside a dryer is a hazard due to the electric components located in the bottom of the unit. This is where your drive motor and heating circuits are located.

I would strongly recommend you try this quick test. Unplug the unit and remove the exhaust vent hose from the back of the dryer and try drying a load as you normally would. If the air flow leaving the exhaust is forceful and warm, then the problem isn't inside the dryer. The problem is with the vent ducting AFTER the dryer. You will need to inspect for kinks or clogs in the hose from the point where it leaves the dryer, all the way to where it exits your home. If the ducting hasn't been cleaned in a while, now might be a good time to do so. Leaving a dryer in a clogged state will eventually cause it to overheat to the point of failure. Not to mention, this creates a fire hazard and a habitat for rodents. Mice love dryer lint.

If the air flow leaving the dryer is weak and cool, you may have an internal clog inside the dryer. Inspect the air blower assembly for clogs or obstructions and clean as necessary. Cleaning the lint screens on dryers isn't always enough. Some lint does get past the screen and can accumulate over time. Periodic inspection and cleaning is recommended. I check mine about every three months.

Always remember to unplug the dryer before servicing the inside of the unit. If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

okay this is a easy problem, your dryer is clogged, check your vent hose and make sure it is not kinked, also check your vent duct from wall to outside...What is happening is your heat and lint is not going outside but it is going back into your dryer, causing your dryer to get extremely hot....
