Question about Whirlpool Dryers
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.
