Question about Dryers

Water on floor in front of dryer taking a long time to dry

I have a vent that goes to the roof. I have vacuumed up as far as possible also inside the dryer and blown out the vent with a garden leaf blower and it seems clear. I have an accordian aluminum vent from the dryer to the wall with an s curve. Lent gets around the front of the dryer and water gets on the floor in front of the dryer. I checked the drum and there are no cracks in it to let water out. any suggestions.

This is a maytag model number LDE7500ACH electric dryer, 5600 watts

Also when the dryer turns on it smells hot.

Frigidaire gas dryer model flxg52rbs3 is making strange noise and leaving burn marks on clothes. I want to take front cover off to clean out lint but I need to know how to take cover off.


The burner safety system is not working. The thermostat may need to be replaced. If it were too much lint, the dryer would not dry the clothes completely. Take the vent hose off the dryer and vacuum it out and if it connects to a wall that vents to the roof, then vacuum inside the wall too. Lint fires are more prevalent than those that vent thru the wall to the outside.

Maytag model #: med5770tq0 won't dry. Please help


Dear Emily.
Several problems.
First, did this dryer ever work properly hooked up as it is?
I mean hooked to the roof event?
If it used to work just fine, then I suspect the vent to the roof is clogged with lint and is not allowing the heat to escape.
If it never did work right,(for example: it is new to us) then I'd venture dryers are not supposed to vent their hot air that far away, they do not have a strong enough blower to push that air that distance.
Then, you might try to find another place to vent the hot air, with a total distance of only 10 feet from the dryer, even if you only vented it while you were actually drying clothers.
I doubt if the last item is for you, but I have sometimes seen where the washing machine did not spin all the water out of the clothes, and then the dryer needed all day to get the clothes dry.
Be blessed.

Whirlpool gas dryer heats but wont dry the clothes


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Whirlpool dryer....heats


You could have heating element going bad, or a plugged dryer vent. Start with dryer vent, make sure all lint is out of it, all the way through it, even if it goes to the roof, or out the wall. Also vacuum out back of dryer and inside vent tube. This should help with problem. If not then replace heating element its getting weak.

Clothes not drying, lint in dryer


Is the vent 4 inches all the way out? The recommended run length of 10 feet is max, however not very practical or followed. You need a vent brush to run completely through the full length and get as clean as possible. The water is from condensation caused by the long run through the attic. Any kinks in the vent will exacerbate your problem. If you do not like the dryer being 4-6 inches from the wall for the elbow, there is a kit available at most home centers, Lowes, Home Depot, that gives you the same volumn as the 4 inch round in 2 inch flat.

It is possible that water is leaking back into the vent and finding a low spot in the tube. This can partly block the vent and cause the puddle. You'll have to investigate this. Then, go to the hardware store and get a dryer vent cover that matches your line (should be 4 inch) and install it. These covers open when the dryer exhaust pressure pushes on them...Make sure its installed vertically and kept free of ice.

Dryer takes too long to dry


This complaint is most often caused by the dryer's vent being blocked with lint. Dryers need to be properly vented, otherwise the moisture in the air can't be properly carried away. Vents that go out the roof are particularly problematic-- the dryer may take far too long to dry clothes and the vent pipe may even drip water that can't be exhausted. Minimum size for a dryer's roof vent is 4 inches. If your dryer has chronically poor drying, if possible, have the vent moved to where it exits a house wall near the dryer. The vent should be made of 4-inch aluminum rigid duct and elbows or, where absolutely necessary, flexible metal (but not flexible thin foil). Do not use flexible plastic duct-- it restricts air flow and is combustible. The dryer should vent outside--never into a crawl space, wall, ceiling chimney, or other type of flue. The bottom of the exhaust hood should be located at least 12 inches above the ground. Here is what to do: 1) Check the lint trap and clean it. 2) Be sure the dryer isn't pushed so close to the wall that it pinches off the airflow through the vent's air duct hose. 3) Check the point where the air duct vents away from the house. Be sure plants, birds, or anything else hasn't blocked it. If the duct vents out the roof, it could easily be blocked with lint. 4) Disconnect the air duct hose from the back of the gas dryer and clean out built-up lint. Note: For safety, first turn off the gas to the dryer, then unplug the dryer; this means you will have to re-light the pilot light later if the dryer has one (read your owner?s manual for proper re-lighting techniques). 5) If necessary, clean out the ductwork from the dryer to the exterior wall where it vents; this may involve disconnecting sections. One trick that sometimes makes this job easier (but only if the dryer duct is fastened firmly at all connection points) is to blow lint and debris through the duct and out the exterior wall vent, using an electric leaf blower.
