Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Water is no longer collected in the bin; blows onto floor

I have a Whirlpool front-loading electric dryer that we bought here in France at the end of 2001. The water collected no longer goes into the bin designed to receive it (on the upper left side of the unit); instead, warm wet air blows out the bottom and condenses on the shelf and floor. We've cleaned the condenser unit (lower left side) and tried to ensure that there's nothing blocking the appropriate tube(s), to no avail. We live in the middle of the countryside and there's no authorized repair service near here. (Plus given the age of our dryer, it may not be worth it.) Help!

I removed the back from my dryer and checked all the pipes, i blew down one pipe which reversed the flow and water and a blockage came out of the drain hole located under the condenser, small hole left hand side below where condenser slides in.
i also checked that the float switch was functioning correctly. this is a microswitch above a piece of polystyrene that stops the machine when the tank is full, this is found when the back is off and on the right hand side bottom as your looking in the back. if none of these resolve the problem then im at a loss what else to suggest.

Thin Twin has a slow water drip when not running


If it drips while the washer is off then you will need to replace the "water inlet valve". Here is the part you need. Here is the service manual to show you how to access the valve and replace it.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

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.

Water leaking onto the floor


You have a condensate line plugged up. So when the defrost cycle melts the ice from the freezer coil, it drains down to the condensate pan underneath the fridge via a tube (frozen pipe). Find the pan underneath the fridge, get the pipe that ends up at the pan and blow air through it. compressed air works the best, but lung power has worked for me in the past. After the clog is passed, there should be no back pressure. If the air doesn't work. You may have an ice blockage. You can try looking for the block, or turn the unit off, and then blow air after the ice has melted.
