You only really notice on laundry day when you run multiple loads through the dryer. It dries ok, but it pools water out the bottom where we have to stick towels around the edges just to sop up the water. I know it sounds more like a leak from the washer, but I'm pretty sure its coming out of the dryer,

Re: Water comes out bottom when I run multiple loads
Pull the dryer and check your venting you can remove the vent and run a load to see if it works ok i know the hot air will come into the room but it is just a test to see if the vent is clogged this is where the condensation would come from chweck that and let me know

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
How long is the vent from the dryer to the outside? Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance. Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dry-ability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads. Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing. If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home. If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry. When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board. When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes. The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle. If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed). Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance. Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues.

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner. Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry). The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
Same problem. You need to empty the condensor. Take the bottom panel off the front of the unit. Place a LARGE towel under the dryer to catch all the water that is going to spill out. Move the 2 red tabs to the right & SLOWLY open the panel. Allow the excess water to drain into the towel, then fully open the panel. Have a bucket handy to catch the water as you remove the condensor. Slide the condensor out & drop the back end into the bucket to catch as much water as possible. Then take the condensor to the laundry tub & rinse it out thoroughly. Re-assemble. Next time you switch the dryer on, just check that you get a short burst of water from the drain hose. You will probably have to do this every 5-10 loads.
A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.
Try running the dryer with the vent pipe unplugged. There should be a lot of hot air coming out, if not the insides need to be cleaned. If it really moves air, and dries a load ok unhooked, your vent is clogged. Clean it if you can. If you can't, look into a lint trap that will work for your situation, some have a water trap, some are good filters, etc. If the air is not hot, some of the electric element may be bad. If it's gas, it could need a tune up and cleaning inside.
This machine drys by intermittently spraying a mist of cold water into the warm, moisture laden air traveling in the tube at the back right side of the machine. The cooling of that air stream causes moisture to condense and join the added water, which is periodically pumped out the drain. It takes a long time, and the clothes are not as "dry" as you may be use to with a conventional dryer. Never try to dry more than a half tub of laundry. These machines are great if you have small amounts of laundry to do, have limited space, and / or do not have 240 volts, (or a gas supply) and cannot do an outside vent. Don't plan on doing more than two loads per day. (one in AM, one in PM) Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.
