Not collecting water in the tank

My Tumble dryer is almost 4 years old. It has a reservoir underneath and at the back of the dryer which then feeds into the water tank. The machine is working ok...drying clothes etc but the water is not being fed into the tank...just leaking out underneath. It would appear that when the reservoir is full, then it just leaks out all over the floor instead of feeding into the tank. Tried cleaning it of fluff but this made no difference.

Re: Not collecting water in the tank

I assuming it is a condenser dryer ,have you checked the rubber gasket ,to see if it is damaged or has dirt on it that prevents it from making a water tight seal.

I have a two year old Bosch Ecologixx 7 Tumble Dryer (WTW84560GB/02) whose condensation compartment full indicator is being activated increasingly early, to the point where I am needing to empty the...

I had exactly the same problem and got it fixed by the Bosch repair service today.
The culprit is that in certain areas there may be algae in the air that thrive to grow in the main water reservoir and clog up the water pump that fills the condensation compartment.
(note: There are two water tanks in the Ecologixx 7 - one user serviceable condenser tank up top and the non-user serviceable main water reservoir sealed inside the machine)
This is main water reservoir is located sealed under the water pump under the tumble dryer drum.
Dismantling instructions: 1. remove the top of the tumble dryer first (two screws at the back 2. remove the right side panel with another few screws (looking from the front) 3. disengage the multi-tooth elastic band by twisting the spring loaded roller at the bottom).
After this you have access to the water pump and the Styrofoam float that triggers the empty condenser tank warning.
If the pump is entirely clogged you might need to replace it and the float.
Then clean the bottom water reservoir from the algae infested water with a pump+hose and a bottle washing brush and circulate clean water through the machine (re-engage the elastic band before running the engine) with the Warm-program.
To kill the algae you need to run about 250ml of clear raw vinegar through the pump system by running the machine in the Warm program for 10min and then rinse the excess vinegar out by putting about half a condenser tank of warm water into the machine and running the Warm-programme for 30min. (this will release the clean water into the condenser unit for the self-cleaning function and then pump it back up into the condenser water tank and dilute and circulate the raw vinegar out of the machine).
You should also do a vinegar sanitization run before all extended periods of disuse of the machine by pouring 250ml of vinegar into the large round hole under the top condenser tank (this is where the condensed water is poured for the self-cleaning run).
Run the Warm-program without the condenser tank in place until you can verify visually that the pump is circulating the vinegar through the hose in the top left back corner of the condenser tank opening (there is a overflow drain at the back so everything coming up goes promptly back down into the main reservoir (small hole in the back corner bottom).
Then place the condenser water tank half full with hot water (not boiling) and let the Warm-programme run for 30min to dilute and circulate the vinegar-water solution out of the machine back into the condenser reservoir.

I got a Whirlpool AW Z 865 dryer. It is a condenser dryer and the water is not going up to the collecting bucket, but remains below and then leaks out and floods the floor when I open the little pull door...

I had a similar problem with a Whirlpool AWZ 8578 Tumble Dryer. The solution was to clean the fluff out of the rubber grommet in the drain hole under the left front of the condenser. Then the water from the condenser could run into the collection container underneath.

Zanussi tumble dryer stops every 3 minutes reporting full tank even though the tank is completely empty. any ideas to solve this annoyance? Thanks

I fixed this problem by cleaning the float in the water tray at the bottom left of the machine. You need to remove the left side panel first. At the back you will be able to see the float that senses whether the reservoir is full through a small window. It should move up and down freely. If it doesn't then you will have to remove the reservoir cover. There is a small screw to remove, then ease the two spring clips so that the reservoir cover is released. You can now remove the float. Give it a good clean and clean inside the reservoir too. Double check that the switch is functioning correctly. You can hear it click.

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.

Zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot

Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

Asko T741 - Thermostat keeps cutting out

Ken from Mecheltec suggests removing condensate sump and pump assembly and servicing it. Clear condensate hoses from lint and debris then carefully reinstall assembly. You should be ok.

Sounds like the condense pump is bad. Replace it, or look if there is lint in it. ;)
