Question about Dryers

Dryer not taking out moisture

Last weekend, a hose broke on my washer while I was not home and flooded the laundry room and surrounding area. Water got into the drum of the Hotpoint NVLR333EE0WW dryer. Since then, the dryer will get hot and tumble, but the moisture is not leaving the clothes. Water condenses on and around the door.

Your venting from the dryer probably also submerged in the "flood", try taking that apart and make sure its not clogged, sounds as if the dryer is not able to release the heat that its producing

Water sensor not working. Started a load of Laundry and the water did not shut off therefore flooding my whole Laundry room. How can I fix this myself?


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug or turn off circuit breaker ,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking,it is what to replaced

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps

If a spin and drain problem you can pull the front off to see if perhaps a small item (ie. sock or like size item) is stuck between basket and tub or in the drain hose? If it is a wash time problem that would be another direction.

My Kenmore 800 series washer leaks from under the front left during the spin cycle. I looked behind it and checked the connections but all seems fine in that area. What could be causing this?


Same problem! Flooded the laundry room and about 1/4 of the basement. Happens randomly, not every load. Checked all hoses, they are snug and don't appear to be leaking at all. During the wash cycle it you can hear it spraying water inside the washer and the floor starts flooding. I bought the washer Sept. 19, 2009 and have had this problem for about 5 weeks now. Sears refuses to do anything about it, because it's no longer under warranty.

Laundry room flooded


could be as simple as a blown thermal fuse.  most places will allow credit for a service call toward purchase of a new machine if repairs are too costly

About once every 7-10 days, an excessive amount of water leaks from beneath our dryer, flooding our laundry room. Is there an area in the dryer that water from wet clothing is collecting before it leaks...


Their is a catch pan that has 2 float switches in it. One of them is supposed to pump the water into the water tray atop the machine.
The other is supposed to kill power if the pump motor fails. I would be willing to bet a hose came off the pump. When the tank gets full the water gets expelled to the floor. Here is a manual for condenser dryers:

Laundry stinks


I find that the dryer does not dry the clothes enough. The washer can take a lot of laundry at one time but the dryer is not able to handle the load. The stink usually comes from a bit of moisture left in the the clothes, especially the towels. Break down your dryer loads or dry them on a timed cycle for a longer time.

Special water hose needed?


i dont know of of a"special hose". are we talking about water inlet (hot and cold) hoses??drain hose??? or a vent hose for dryer???
1. stainless steel non-bursting fill hoses are available in up to 6' lentgh's
2. drain hose can be extended if need be, i would make it as short of an extension as needed, and use a hose of atleast the existing diameter and make sure that it wont, bent or pinch off after putting into drain pipe
3. dryer venting should be a solid aluminum 4" pipe as shosrt as possible with least amount of elbows needed.
all available at a quaitly home improvemnet store/ hardware store
