I'm not sure what your saying when you talk about the condenser on a dryer. Without a model number I'll have to guess your talking about a clothes dryer. All dryers have a cycling thermostat. If this is a regular clothes dryer, either this will be the problem or your vent hose is clogged. What sounds like is happening is something is cutting the heat off prematurely therefore it takes to long to dry the clothes. If the vent is clogged, it can't get rid of the air and this will cause the dryer to short cycle. The cycling thermostat will also cause this when it gets weak. I hope this helps but I'm not sure we are even talking about the same thing. Sorry.

SOURCE: CONDENSER DRYER IS LEAKING WATER

make sure it is pushed all the way in but it could be something simple like when it was moved water has splashed out into the inside of your dryer which will make it look like it is leaking had same problems like that with other customers dryers leave it to run and more than likely that it will dry itself out

SOURCE: Not collecting water in the tank

I assuming it is a condenser dryer ,have you checked the rubber gasket ,to see if it is damaged or has dirt on it that prevents it from making a water tight seal.

You said, Water collects under Clothes dry on floor.This sounds like a condenser dryer that needs the water retention bottle empdied or the hose to the bottle is leaking.

JLTDC01 Dryer not collecting water in the tank


ck your vent hose,there may be a block vent not allowing air to move around clothes , causeing long drying times.if vent hose is ran long way.more then 4ft say 15 or longer,it should be cleaned once a year or replaced.this in my opinion is the most main problem when having dryer issues.

Bosch maxx 7 sensitive dryer wich stops everytime and shows that there is a problem with the reservoir




Technician just solved that annoying problem. My dryer is few months old and without pump, so condensed water is dripping to tank by gravity. During drying cloth is collected on filter and condenser, but some amount of cloth goes into pipes and canals on the bottom of dryer and clogged non-return valve where tank is inserted. Side panel ha has to be removed, canals and valve cleaned. To prevent problem technician suggested condenser and filter cleaning after every use. Valve can be removed from bottom without removing side panel.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...


it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Water is no longer collected in the bin; blows onto floor


i removed the back from my dryer and checked all the pipes, i blew down one pipe which reversed the flow and water and a blockage came out of the drain hole located under the condenser, small hole left hand side below where condenser slides in.
i also checked that the float switch was functioning correctly. this is a microswitch above a piece of polystyrene that stops the machine when the tank is full, this is found when the back is off and on the right hand side bottom as your looking in the back. if none of these resolve the problem then im at a loss what else to suggest.
