My dryer heats, but does not dry the clothes. I did the moisture sensor test and got a software revision number of 6E. Also there is condensation on the top display panel.


Sounds like you have a blockage in the venting from the dryer to the outside and the moisture from clothes is probably not exiting the dryer and causing the display panel to condensate. Take the vent off the back and dry a load with it off and see what happens.

The dryer works and the condenser is clean but no water collects in the tank and things take much longer to dry.


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.

I need advice on dryer for my kitchen.


This isn't an add its two different units that I have installed and are both condensation dryers. Which in my opinion is better for your needs and lacking venting.....LG and Miele also have 15 cycle so now the decision is what your needs and Budget. Prices range from 700-1500 but well worth the money. Bosch Axxis Condensation Dryer (model: WTMC8320US) you can machine-dry clothes without venting hot, moist air (or indeed any air at all). The Axxis Condensation Clothes Dryer condenses the moisture in the hot air to water and releases it through the water the need for ducting and a blower motor to help expel hot air. Ventless dryers make installation easy, fast, and very cost effective. And since little heat is lost when the air passes through the condensing chamber, it takes very little energy to raise the temperature back to optimal drying levels, thereby saving you energy. The Bosch Axxis ventless dryer features the unique DUO TRONIC system with 11 auto dry cycles that tailor the drying cycle to your clothing. And Bosch's exclusive DUO TRONIC system combines two moisture and three temperature sensors to automatically deliver precision drying. This machine virtually operates at the touch of a button to prevent over drying and damage to your clothes. With the stacking unit I think this is your best option due to keeping moisture, and later mold problems due too condensation. The Ariston Stackable Condensing Dryer ASL75CXSNA is the perfect choice for any home lacking venting capabilities and is the largest condenser dryer on the market, bringing the convenience of a compact laundry system to any home. Wrinkles are minimized with the innovative Pre and Post CreaseCare feature - periodically tumbling the clothing until you come back to remove it - and the handy Bidirectional Rotation of the stainless steel drying drum. Clothes gone musty from long closet stays can be quickly and easily refreshed with the ASL75CXSNA using the intuitive Air Fluff cycle, and the 12-hour Delay Timer allows for freshly-dried loads at your convenience.Key features include: spacious 16-pound load capacity; 180º reversible full metal door; removable lint filter; included stacking kit; Easy Iron option; and electronic Sensor Controls. The Ariston Stackable Condensing Dryer ASL75CXSNA has the high class, top performance, and compact convenience to be a welcome addition to any energy efficient home.Note: This item pairs with the matching Ariston Stackable Washers. I hope this was helpfull~ Have a good day

Burning smell coming from the dryer!


You have a serious clog somewhere in your dryer exhaust ventilation. I would recommend you STOP using the dryer immediately and clean both the interior and all the vent ducting from where it exits the dryer to where it exits the home. the burning is coming from lint build up in and around the heating element and its beginning to smolder. This is a potential fire hazard and may end up causing the heating circuits to fail. The condensation comes from the the inability of the hot air (which is mixed with humidity from your clothing) condensating inside the vent duct. The lint starts to collect and get wet to the point of saturation. Then it begins to cause water to form and leak out of the ducting and on to your floor. You do not want this condensation inside the dryer where the heating circuits are. The following link will provide with some guidance for future reference:

Pay particular attention the paragraph where it discusses proper dryer ventilation. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Splendid washer and condensing dryer combo


Since the clothes ARE getting hot, it's not the tripped breaker(s) mentioned in Solution #2, because these would cut off power to the heating element(s).
Since it's a Condensing dryer, it can't be an obstructed exhaust hose, either (as there is no dryer exhaust).
Remove the lint filter(s). Holding it over a sink, see if water flows through it. The waxes in "dryer sheets" clog lint filters and, even though invisible to the eye, can totally obstruct the air flow and stop a dryer from drying. Wash it with soap and water.
Question: Does your dryer have a small drain hose leading out the back and going down a drain? If it's clogged, the dryer can't remove any more moisture. If there's no drain, then you have an internal "catch tank" to collect the water evaporated out of the clothes. It's supposed to be emptied after every load. Empty it.
If that's not the problem, I suspect your condenser is not working (removing moisture from the hot stream of air blowing through the wet clothes. This could be because: (1) It's clogged - Take out the boxy thing (technically called a heat exchanger) made of thin aluminum "fins" or tubes, and wash it off in the sink. or (2) The little fan that cools the condenser isn't running. In this case you'll need to call a technician. Good luck
