The room my dryer is in is pretty cold in the summer, with the a/c coming in on the floor just a few feet from the dryer. The dryer works fine, but when it is empty for a few hours, the inside becomes wet from condensation. The dryer vents directly out through the brick exterior wall into the open carport. Do I have to leave the dryer open when it is not being used to prevent this problem?

One of the feet is not in proper contact with the floor. All the feet are adjustable in height. The washing machine must be checked level, front to back and side to side using a long spirit level. All feet must be in equal loading contact with floor.
Regarding loading, a small load can often be worse as all the clothes end up on one side. Run a cycle empty and see what happens? Run a cycle full of towels, 3/4 fill the drum and see hat happens?
Finally, is the machine new? Did you remove the locking bar inside. If this is fixed in place there is no dampening from the floating springs and shock absorbers. I did that once after a move!
The chimney needs to be 3 feet taller than the highest point of the house . If you are running the clothes dryer, bathroom vent fan, or exaust hood in kitchen it makes a vacum in the house that can draw smoke into the house down the chimmney . I think when you burn wood or coal in a house it is pretty hard not to be able to smell it. Our house and clothes do not smell like smoke any more since we stopped burning wood.
I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank,
you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble
dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water
tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the
water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the
tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a
little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a
while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the
cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer.
I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using
a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down
and remove the floor to do this
look for a restricted vent . and a cold floor or room . this would cause condensation and would leak from inside / causing leakage on floor in or around the dryer .. hope this helps . pls leave feed back .. mm
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:
Hi. I take it that the machine is of the condenser - dryer type?
In these machines, during the drying cycle, warm air is circulated inside the drum and a cold plate is either splashed with cold water or has cold water running through it, causing moisture from the clothes to condense on the cold plate - just like moisture in a room condenses on a cold window pane on cold days.
If your machine is continuing to fill up slowly with water after it has been switched off, then I would suspect the cold water inlet valve isn't closing properly. This is likely due to a build up of grit inside the valve.
If you turn off the cold water supply you will be able to remove the cold supply pipe from the machine and - hopefully - see some of the grit on the filter gauze. The grit possibly causing your problem is already inside the elcetically controlled inlet valve, so it may need to be removed and cleaned or replaced.
You should be able to check if this is the problem by just turning off the cold water supply to the machine. No supply means no water can get into the machine, so it shouldn't fill up overnight.
Before removing the filter down at the bottom of the machine you could turn the machine on to a spin or pump out cycle - that way you shouldn't need wellington boots when you removed the filter :-)
Hope this helps a bit. If not, add a comment and I will try to help you further. D.
all dryers produce moisture. thats what hapens when you heat wet cloths up. the dryers job is to remove the moisture to dry. thats how the automai]tic cycles work by deteting the moisture in the exhaust. i will say there is nothing wrong with your dryer. only thing i dont understand is the containers of water?
