Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

My Whirlpool AWZ8577 tumble dryer has developed a fault, after a cycle there is little water in the top water container and when you remove the heat exchanger the water floods out of this area. It appears that the water is not emptying into the water container.

WHIRLPOOL AWZ8577 dryer will not heat up. Is there a thermostate reset or online fuse with this model, any help will be appreciated.


More likely the heating element is gone. Purchase a replacement and install it. You will need to open the back of the dryer to get to it. Replacement is simple.

I got a Whirlpool AW Z 865 dryer. It is a condenser dryer and the water is not going up to the collecting bucket, but remains below and then leaks out and floods the floor when I open the little pull door...


I had a similar problem with a Whirlpool AWZ 8578 Tumble Dryer. The solution was to clean the fluff out of the rubber grommet in the drain hole under the left front of the condenser. Then the water from the condenser could run into the collection container underneath.

I have an ASL70C Ariston tumble drier that suddenly has stopped emptying the water into the water tray.the clothes are still drying but where is the water going


Einy Lane -- Water Drain question -- If your dryer is installed next to a drain the water can be plumbed into this drain. This does away with the need to empty the water container. Simply remove the top hose from its top fitting at the rear of the dryer and plumb the hose provided to the drain.

If a leak has developed in absence of using the drain hose feature, then the water is going someplace else. Unplug unit and then check behind it for the drain line being fallen down. If you need more help, please write back. User Manual can be downloaded without charge from Hotpoint website. -- SWT

How does tumble dryer work?


The heated air inside the dryer is not expelled but reused. The drum is contained inside a closed area. The heat is contained inside the dryer. No ducting to outside is needed. The moisture is removed from the heated air through a condenser before re-entering the drum. Sorta like a giant self-contained dehumidifier. As the water is removed from the clothes, it puddles up into a drain pan which periodically needs dumping. Fancier models pump out the water to standing drainpipes. This design saves energy.

Whirlpool AWZ 8577 Tumble Dryer The water is not collecting in the top water container


You have a water pump in the base of the appliance this can sometimes fail or block. On the back of the dryer there should be a pipe just pull that off and blow down it, if there is a block this may well remove it. If not it's likely a pump failure.

Hope this helps

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
