Question about Dryers
If you have water in the exhaust vent you have a clog somewhere in the line that needs to be cleared. When a dryer exhausts, moisture is included in the air that exits the dryer. This moisture will condensate and collect in the exhaust vent if it has no where to go. If too much moisture builds up this can back up into your dryer's heating circuits. In addition, a clogged dryer actually overheats and dries less efficiently. If the heating circuits continually overheat this can result in component failures and is a potential fire hazard. Inspect your dryer exhaust vent ducting thoroughly from where it leaves the back of the dryer, to where it exits your home. Make sure there are no bends, sags, kinks or clogs in the line. In addition, it is recommended that you use the semi-rigid metal type vent ducting. It resists kinking, is heat resistant and prevents rodent intrusion. If you have questions let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS If your heating circuits are no longer working, you may have a problem with the heating circuits now. The thermal cut-out (TCO) commonly fails. If this is the case, please let me know and I can advise you further.
