    dryer has great air flow.

    water collects in it while the dryer is off.

    i thought this may be a common problem and maytag or some after market product would have an easy fix for it but i guess i was wrong.

Clean out the lint trap and the vacuum the slot it goes into. Also clean out the vent hose and vacuum out all of the lint inside the dryer where the hose attaches. This is normally caused by lack of air flow.

    Unless you have water leaking into the dryer it is caused by a high humidity level in the room the dryer is located in. If the dryer is located in the bathroom it is more than likely caused by hot showers, if not I would use a dehumidifier in the room it is located in. This should work for you.

    I understand your frustration, but water in the dryer is not a common problem. It is just caused by humidity in the room where the dryer is. If you do not have a vent hose attached this will cause the same issue.

Condensed dryer keeps tripping out my electric when I turn it on


Disconnect from mains. Remove rear panel and water will probably come out. This water is being flung by the fan onto the heater hence tripping the electric.
cause of water being here is a blockage in the condenser stopping flow into water chamber or possibly but unlikely, failure of the pump

Dryer will not stop beeping


I wonder if maybe you need to dump the water tray (if this is a condenser dryer). Not all dryers are the same but a continual beeping must be a notification of some sort, like maybe a over heat problem due to filter being clogged vent pipe kinked (if applicable) A condenser dryer does not have venting. The water has to go somewhere so it is captured in a basin and has to be removed on some machines while on others it gets pumped out. Pump failure res overflow who knows, you should post brand and model for a better answer.

Indesit condenser tumble dryer water light always on even though container empty


Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40


There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB

Condenser tumble dryer water problem


Took advice...isolated from electricity supply...removed left side panel (side with condenser tank), to access the pump. Cleaned it all out (masses of water and grey lint!) and put it all back together again. Bit fiddly getting the panel back on...no screws left over...result!

All working great now.

Simpler solution maybe...There is a 'trap door' that can be removed, which gives access to the area where the water and lint accumulate.

1) Isolate from electricity supply.
2) Take out the condenser unit at the bottom LHS front of the machine (routine maintenance).
3) Underneath of where the condenser unit usually lives..at the back...reach in and open the 'trap door'. This needs a flat head screwdriver and you must release the two plastic clips holding the trap door.
4) You can now access the area where the water and lint accumulate...which makes the 'float' give a false container full fault.
5) Clean out this water and gunk regularly (once a month)!

Hoping this will avoid taking the side panel off again...

E10 error code


I had this problem, the washer/dryer stopped working while in the drying cycle and displayed e10 message. It was caused by a faulty three-way inlet valve. The solenoid controlling flow to dryer condenser proved to be open circuit. Pulled washer out from under counter top, unplugged, removed top cover, tested solenoid circuits with ohm meter and found one solenoid was faulty. The filter going into the unit was clear. Replaced whole three way component with one ordered on Internet and all now works fine. Noticed that during drying cycle, water to condenser is constantly being switched on and off, explaining why the green condenser solenoid is the one that wears out first.
