I don't think the problem lies with the dryer, I would suspect the washer has mold, this is especially true on front load washer, they make products designed just for this problem, check with a large retailer, not sure who makes the mold and mildew remover, I think Home Depot or Lowes may have the product or know about it..
The water comes from condensation inside the dryer ducting and drum. Heavy condensation can occur when the dryer exhaust ducting becomes clogged.
As your dryer runs, it exhausts warm moist air from your clothing. If lint becomes trapped inside the ducting, or if the ducting is kinked, this moisture has no where to go, but condensate inside the walls of the ducting and/or drum. If lint becomes accumulated it can act as a sponge and absorb this moisture.
The following link explains some common causes and potential problems you may encounter:
I ran into this last week. Customer said that when on auto dry. Unit would run for a long time. When he checked the unit, the display showed 1:40 left but he opened and checked. Clothes were bone dry. His last power bill was $400.00 when normal was $210.00. I called factory and ran the internal codes. The first thing that came up was F1. Meaning bad main board. I'm waiting on part so I can install on customers unit.
Please rate solution.
In a unrestricted rigid metal vent no water will accumulate. A dryer is exhausting hot and humid air to the outdoors. If the vent becomes restricted with a lint buildup, that lint can become wet. The more restricted the airflow is, the less airflow is available to remove the moisture. if there are low spots, or a flexible vent is used, pockets of moisture can accumulate......especially on a longer vent run.
I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
lots of people point the finger at the dryer when they have a problem you could have bad thermal cutoffs on the back of the flame tube BUT is your washer spinning properly to remove the majorityof water from the clothes
Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps
