Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer My electric dryer is heating, but the water is condensing inside the dryer and dripping out the front door instead of venting to the outside. I have checked the flexible vent for blockage and found none. Is there some sort of fan that may be broken? If so, could I replace this myself? Beverly

When the dryer is not is use, it is recommended to leave the dryer door open. What you are experiencing is probably due to outside air coming back thru the dryer vent (the louvers don't always close well due to lint). The temperature difference between the outside air that accumulates in the dryer and the inside air causes condensation.

Water under dryer after use. cleaned exhaust lint in it was wet. should i insulate exhaust tubing.


Dryer would be either leaking from vent or due to condensation. The vent may either be blocked. The water is coming from the clothes you have dried in the dryer and it has no where to go.
You need to dismantle the vent and clean it, replace it with new vent. The dryer may now be consuming more time to dry the same load of clothes. By correcting the venting problem you will solve the water problem and shorten your wash day and save on electricity as well.

Another issue is condensation which usually appears on the dryer vent pipe colder climates. As the warm air from the dryer is vented to the outside, it must be protected from the cold temperatures outside. If your dryer vent pipe is not properly insulated, the air that is being vented out will turn into water when it comes into contact with the cold pipe outside. This results in condensation and dripping water. To resolve this, you must insulate your dryer vent pipe along its entire length. This will ensure that the hot air from the dryer does not undergo temperature fluctuations, and no water will leak into the vent pipe. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

AC vent to close to your dryer. This is usually because your house ac is cooling the caseing of your dryer down and outside air is creeping back in thru your exhaust on your dryer. Make sure the vents are closing on the exhaust dryer air and that there is not a vent close by that is helping your dryer shell to chill. I have only seen this 3 times but it is a problem. you will notice the water after drying a load and removing it after a hour or so you open the door and there will be water. This happens only in extreme heat and usually hi humidity outside.

My Inglis dryer has condensation on the inside of

normally condensation on the inside of a dryer is due to a pinched or plugged vent hose i have had this happen also when the dryer vent is very short and goes outside where the temperater outside is cold and moisture will condense on inside of dryer
if you live in a colder location there is a vent system
that you can install that will allow you to keep heat inside not reccomended for gas dryer the vent cap on the outside could also be missing the flap that stop air from going back into dryer hope one of these suggestions i a solution to your problem

Dryer Door Clouds over with Condensation. I found

Your dryer is not venting to the out-of-doors. Try removing the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and checking it all the way to the outside for an obstruction,i.e. lint build up, water retention, animal nest, etc. Make sure there are no sags if it is a flexible vent tube, no pinch off points, short as possible... most dryers can only have a 10-15 ft. length of straight tubing. A mechanical failure of the blower could also cause the issue.

The top is too hot to touch.

You may have a blocked vent, check your vent all the way to outside. if there are any droops in the vent there may be accumulation of water in it. just drain it out and then you should be all set.
