Question about LG Dryers

LG condenser dryer, TD-C70040E. Empty water warning every 3mins!

LG condenser dryer. Empty water light / warning buzzer keeps coming on even though the water reservoir is empty. Water reservoir at top right of machine - don't know if it is filling, instead water is pooling in bottom of machine (not the drum, if you remove the condenser unit bottom left, stick hand in all the way, then feel about 2 inches of water!) Tip machine and it comes out everywhere. Lots of condensation inside the drum as well - and quite a high temp when open the door. Had the back / side off, no water tubes loose or signs of water around electronics. Machine is 3.5yrs old - used daily during winter (3 kids) but rarely during summer. Help please!!

    I solved the problem.
    Solution in manual:
    1) check the pump to see if its working
    2) check sensor
    What I did.
    1) checked the pipes and especially the white L shaped connector through which the condensed water drops into the water container drawer. In my case it was blocked with debri. Unscrew top of dryer to access it.
    Now all is good.

    Great answer, dvg3! I did the same and it immediately solved the problem. I did have to use tweezers and reach down into the black rubber tubing to find my "lint clot."

Hotpoint condensing dryer model TCFS93BGP. cleanfilter/empty water light keeps coming on after 3/4 minutes


Hi, my dryer has 3 things to check out of which one is more hidden:
- empty the water reservoir
- clean filter in the door
- clean condensor which is hidden below the bottom panel which has to be released through a button behind the door

The last one is less obvious and more difficult to find/reach. Might need to consult the manual.

Did you check all 3?

Hope this helps

Empty water light, empty condenser


I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

Full water indicator lit continuously even though


Problem was a stuck float in the small water reservoir to the rear left of the unit.. Remove top and left hand side panel. Small reservoir can be seen at the bottom left. Remove small screw and slide off the cable assembly above. You should then see into the reservoir and the float. Clean float and reservoir and reassemble.

Why would a dryer be leaking water at the bottom?


look for a restricted vent . and a cold floor or room . this would cause condensation and would leak from inside / causing leakage on floor in or around the dryer .. hope this helps . pls leave feed back .. mm

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
