    Thanks, but I don't use fabric softener.

    Hi. The fabric softener comment was in response to another expert's suggestion. I will try your ideas regarding the vent and hose and let you know.

    Thanks!

It sounds like either the vent is not connected, or it is blocked. If is is connected, verify that it is exhausting the dryer air when the dryer is running

Hi, The first thing you need to check is the venting behind the dryer to the outside. If the vent has a hole in it or has came loose at all, you will get a lot of humidity. Also, check the vent hose to make sure it is clear of any lint or that it is not pinched at all.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Rinse the lint filter with hot water, sometimes they look clean but are coated with fabric softener

Why does my apartment fill up with moist air and fumes whenever I use the electric dryer on my GE SpaceSaver stacked washer/dryer combination?


You have a 4 inch duct hooked to the back of the dryer. The hot air, moist air etc. go through it to wherever it is vented to. Outside, attic or inside your apt. if it has come loose.

Jinx, start with the power cord and terminal block where the cord connects. Sometimes if there is a loose connection the terminal will arc and cause a burnt wire or short. I see this a lot on stacked units. Make sure to disconnect power when checking. Check this first and post back, Catriver.
