Question about Bosch Axxis WTL 5400 Dryer
First, on the condensation issue, the buildup of condensation is a pretty good indicator of poor air flow/venting. I would check the vent and make sure it isn't kinked or obstructed. Make sure the blower fan is working properly. Insofar as the door is concerned, if the door is not seating/closing properly because the hinges are bent, try this little trick before replacing the door. Take an 11/32" deep well socket (1/4" drive) and place it laying down flat at one of the bottom door corners and slowly apply pressure to the door. Move the socket to the other side and repeat. This will sometimes straighten up bent hinges and fix a crooked door. Anyway, it's something you may want to give a shot before considering door replacement. Sorry for your trouble and best wishes.

Make sure the filters are not blocked and the air exhaust and condenser are not blocked or full of fluff etc, as these frequently cause the problem to occur. Also make sure that the condensate collection tank is not full.
Unless the door is leaking then there is no reason to replace it but if it is really warped then check that the hinge is secure and not bent - you may be able to bend it back - but be careful not to put too much force on it. Failing which just replace the whole door.

The automatic preheat and drying cycle kicks in as the final wash spin is under- way. The system employs a condenser dryer in which the hot air used to dry the clothes is channeled into a drum, instead of being released into the great outdoors via a dry vent hose. Cold water is drawn into the drum at the same time. The two mix, and the result is a condensing process.
The chlothes should be dry. there may be a damp feeling to them but otherwise dry. If your machine is not drying then the element could be going bad, or a thermal cutoff. those would be the easyiest fixes.
The BIG drawback is drying. It takes about 90 minutes to dry a load, and the clothes come out very wrinkled. Because the drum is so small, the clothes don't 'toss' in heated air and don't fluff at all. Clothes also come out stiffer than a regular dryer.
