Tumble dryer getting too hot



Today my washer/dryer was on tumble and steam was coming out of the powder drawer, I turned the machine off and then steam was coming out of the door as well.  Any advice.  I've tried to find the manual but nothing is on line.


Many thanks,

    kenmore 80 series, changed the thermal fuse, blows again, on delicate temp, the dryer gets too hot........see an old used parts bag, thermal cut off, and themostat that fits this model, this heat seems too severe for issues like felt door seal, etc, blowing over coils, etc...seems like a problem caused by lack of thermostat and or thermal cutoff?? alreday spent $50 for 2 thermal fuses ( glad I bought 2) is calling a repairman more sensable?

It sounds like your vent tube is blocked or kinked. Look at the back of your dryer and you will see that tube coming out. Make sure that it is not kinked. If it is, make it not so. You may have to pull out the dryer to make room. If that is not the case, check the following:

  1. Follow the tube to where it goes outside and make sure it is not blocked. Sometimes critters will build a home in the nice warm tube.
  2. Make sure your lint collect in the door is cleaned out.
One of these suggestions should do it.

Good Luck!

I have a karcher power washer and every time I use it my power is tripped bought it brand new a bout 2 years ago not really had the use of it

You don't say if its 240 or 110 volts. Tumble dryers take a huge amount of power and can make the socket quite hot. Turn off the power and see if the socket is damaged. Try the washer somewhere else and see what happens. Try it at a friends house? Determine if its a house or machine problem but washers do have a big start up surge. Get an electrician to look at the supply and machine.

Bosch condensation dryer when on heated dry clothes come out steaming hot not dry

Sounds like something's blocking the hot damp air being removed from the drier. If you are confident enough, go through the drier vent system looking for a blockage. If not get a good DIY neighbour or appliance engineer. Silly question, is the drum turning?

I have a TB condensing tumble dryer, model TM310W, which has always worked well, but lately, although the clothes are drying, there doesn't seem to be much water going into the reservoir. I can't find it...

The first decision you must make when buying a tumble dryer is whether to buy a vented or a condenser dryer. As you'd expect, there are pros and cons for both. This page helps you understand all of the differences, including the reliability and repair implications. Condensor tumble dryers are becoming more popular but vented tumble dryers still have some advantages and the convenience of not needing a venting hose (as always) requires some compromises.
Until I can put together my own reviews the best Tumble Dryer reviews available online are by Which?
Due to their resources and independence, Which? usually have the latest reviews and collect the opinions and experiences of thousands of members - Which? tumble dryer reviews (Plenty of free information but will need to be a subscriber (take advantage of the 1 month trial offer to get the full benefit)
Vented tumble dryers are cheaper than condenser dryers, they are also simpler, more reliable and more economical to run. According to Which? "on average, vented tumble dryers use about a fifth less energy than condenser dryers to dry a full load of cottons."
So why bother with a condenser tumble dryer? Well condenser tumble dryers are a convenience product but they do offer a solution to a genuine problem for some where venting the dryer outside is difficult or even impossible.
My advice would be that if your tumble dryer can be sited somewhere that allows you to correctly vent it outside, either through a wall or through a window, then a vented dryer is probably best. If this would be particularly awkward, then buy a good quality condenser dryer, which should condense the steam into water.
Modern washing machines now have a far superior spin speed, and, of the ones we recommend, the cheaper model has a 1200 spin speed, the other a 1400 spin speed... so your washing will be fairly reasonable (some items could be about ready to iron) and this, in turn, could affect your other choices.
Could you get away with just airers and a washing line? Or have you considered a dehumidifier?
A Spin Dryer... will work efficiently, and is cheap. The main advantage to it is that it is only the size of a large pedal bin, so it can be stored under the worktop in a small amount of space.
A Tumble Dryer... much more expensive... for a decent quality item you need to pay a quite steep price. They do a good job, but are another full size kitchen appliance to find room for.
A Washer/Dryer... instead of a washing machine... disadvantages, if it goes wrong then you have no back up in either the washing or drying department... and of course being a more complicated piece of machinery, it IS more likely to break down! The only advantage is that it will be a space saving item.]
please comment on these on how helpful.

Rinse cycle

If the machine has a soak cycle, you can use that. If it does not, you can have it fill on a cold rinse, and then stop it for a soak. Restart it on a hot wash with a cold rinse. Tumble dry low.

Not drying

the steam gets condensed back to water and pumped away so sometimes draining problems cause poor drying. is the machine plumbed in according to handbook?
also your dryer filter may be blocked but this is not accesable without the dryer box being stripped down.

no the steam from the dryer part comes out of outlet tube the same tube were the water comes out hotpoint washer/dryers use a condensing chamber which allows the steam to cool down a pass through it as water does and through the outlet pipe
