I currently live in the midwest and today has been an extremely humid day (90 degrees+ and 84%+ humidity). I used our LG gas dryer (Model # DLG2241W) earlier this weekend and it worked fine. Tonight, when...


Water in the drum anytime after drying a load of clothes is not normal.

Was the load prior to you having found the condensation fully dried? If not, check for lint in the vent system and make sure that air is coming out of the vent (the flap or louvers on the vent cap should open fully on a short vent line). Even so, this would not account for a small amount of standing water in the drum.

The first thing that came to mind was outside air being drawn in through the vent. If you have air conditioning and a well-sealed house, the warm, moist air hitting the cool drum (in a relatively dry atmosphere) may cause condensation. Check the outside vent to ensure that the vent cap flap (or louvers) is (are) closing all the way. Convection or air flow from the basement to a vent fan in an upper level might cause this.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Lint is building up in the dryer vent outside and the dryer is heating up but not drying the clothes


you will need to clean out or replace the vent line as you clothes will not dry if there is a restriction in the line.

Dryer produces heat, but clothes don't dry


Sounds like the vent has a lint build up inside of it. A moister sensor detects any lint build up and keeps the heat in check. The dryer will produce very little heat this was. Clean the entire venting tubing and it shall run better for you

Clothes do not dry completely on one cycle


Check your dryer vent (the entire length) for lint build-up. Check that the vent is opening properly (the flapper type can come loose and block air-flow).

Those are the most common reasons for an inefficient dryer.

I hope this helps.

I have a g e clothes dryer The top of the dryer


usually a clogged or obstructed vent hose or outside vent causes this. Also check inside the dryer (when cool) to see if there is lint building up inside, hindering air circulation.

Do i need to vent my 3510 dryer


Maybe not. What did the manufacturer say about venting? Are you prepared for a house full of dust? What about all the extra moisture you will trap inside?

In the past, in the winter time, to conserve heat, I have vented my dryer to the inside through tripple thick nylon womens hose. I didn't save enough $ to offset the dust I got in my basement.

Another consideration: What does your local housing authority (building inspecctor) say?

If you ask me, I'd say vent.

Let me know what happens - Thanks

Water build up nin dryer vent


Hi, W/D here.

It would be best in your circumstance to slope your vent like one might slope a drain. 35 feet is waaaaay too long, 20 feet is max, and you can deduct 6 feet for every bend. If you can reconfigure your vent to a sloped drain, this will help.
The coolness of the basement is a contributing factor, but normally, it doesn't figure into the issue.
If you cannot shorten your run, or slope your line, you might do well with a trap that would have a mini sump pump in it. These are available from A/C companies, and are automatic in their operation. I have had one in one of my units, and the cost wasn't unreasonable. You can probably find one on-line (EBay?)
Venting into the basement may resolve your water issue, but you still have to deal with the lint that "escapes" the lint trap. Most of it will likely wind up in the air conditioner, and all over whatever you have in your basement.
A mini sump sounds like your best option, even if you have to set up a schedule to clean it out occasionally.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a lg dryer model dlg2532w gas dryer it does get warm


if the cloths are warm and wet the problem is not with the dryer but in the venting. check the air flow at the end of the line (where the exhaust leaves the building) if the air baffels are not fully opening when the drier is on there is probably an issue with the venting. remember to tape up the venting joints after inspecting it because it is also the exhaust for the gas. hope this helps.
