9 out of 10 times this is going to be a restriction in your vent line. Check where it goes outdoors and see if there is a steady flow of warm air. If not, take the vent off of the wall behind the dryer and either have a handyman snake it clear to the outside or take a leaf blower and blow it clear. A good way to test for a restriction before doing all of this is to run a cycle with the vent disconnected from the back of the dryer. The steam is a result of the hot wet air from the clothes having nowhere to go. Good luck =)

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

Yes - the vent exhausts humid air, and draws IN fresh dry air. So the humid air is staying trapped in your unit.

Does not heat


"Steam drying will get how but the air that comes later to actually dry is cold so the clothes never dry"

I am assuming "how" means hot in this sentence, if so, I think I can help! There is no "steam drying" phase for your dryer so what is probably happening is; the wet clothes are being heated properly [as a result causing steam] however if this steam does not escape frum the dryer it will simply condense back onto the clothing [leaving them moist/wet].
Check your flexible tube from the dryer and the vent on the outside of your home to make sure they are unobstructed. Hope this helps!
