Water in dryer

My dryer has been getting a good bit of water in the bottom and looks like moisture all around the inside. There has not been any clothes in it for the control lock light is still on and now the wet light is on. I have tried holding in the buttons but to no avail. Any suggestion?

May tag Neptune dryer forming moisture inside tub


Moister in the dryer:

This means that the moist air is not escaping correctly and that is why it is taking so long to dry your clothes - if they dry at all.
a good start at cleaning out lint blocked areas, I suggest go to the back of the dryer and take off the vent pipe or hose and check things out with a flashlight. Clean out all the lint and dust you can, even use a vacuum cleaner on it. Make sure the vent pipe is completely clear of any obstructions.Non-rigid ventshas much worse air flow than smooth piping, so you might want to upgrade tosmooth piping.
Once you have all the lint and dust cleaned out of the dryer, go to where the dryer vents outside. Again, clean the area thoroughly. There is usually a trap door that opens when the dryer air is on and closes when it is not operating. It should be completely clear of lint and opening smoothly.
Also, look into the exhaust area on the dryer carefully to see if there is a hole or gap in the dryer's internal air ducting. Without the vent pipe connected and with no clothes in the dryer, start it and let if run for a few seconds and make sure there is strong air flow from the exhaust port. You should feel it strongly on your hand.
Re-connect the vent pipe and start the dryer again. Feel all around the bottom to see if any air is blowing out from under the bottom. This would indicate there is a break or gap in the dryer's internal ducting. If you do feel air, you will need to call a service technician to see if it can be repaired. If your dryer is very old, there could be a rust hole in the duct.
In conclusion Cause ·Poor venting is a common reason why water might leak into a clothes dryer. Since the dryer works to expel moisture, it is important that the dryer's vents are properly installed so that the humidity can escape.
Effect ·If the humidity in the dryer is trapped, it will eventually turn to water. This will lead to poor drying results or longer drying times, depending on the amount of leakage.
Prevention/Solution ·Faulty dryer venting can be prevented by making sure that the humidity is directed outdoors. Also, vents should be cleaned of lint and other debris before each load so that water can readily escape. Taking these precautions can ensure that the moisture will meet dry, open air.

Water collecting in bottom of fridge


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving water at the bottom of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FPUI2188LF. What can cause this is either humidity coming from outside your refrigerator or maybe from the crisper drawers. Make sure your crisper drawers are set for a high humidity. Another thing that can cause moisture build-up at the bottom of your appliance is not covering your foods. Make sure that all foods and drinks are covered to cut down on moisture floating around inside your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi you could have a clogged drain pump or obstruction in it. Remove the lower bottom cover. Have a container or towels to catch water. Removed the drain cover by turning counter clock wise. Sometimes you have to remove the pump to fully and clean. You also need to plug the washer into another outlet. If possible use an extension cord use the extension for test only.

1992 w/opti spark dist. Had to replace it once already due to corrosion inside at 40k+ miles. Now at 67k+ and it's doing the same thing again! What's the answer to a fix that will last?


Sounds a bit odd that it is corroding inside but if it is, you may want to use the method I use to keep distributor internals dry when off roading.
Use kids modeling clay as a gasket around the distributor cap bottom perimeter where it contacts the housing. Before closing it up, give everything a light spray of silicone and let it dry. Any moisture will be dispelled by the silicone and it will inhibit corrosion clay will prevent anything from getting in there.

Over heats , and has lots of moisture vapor coming out of the bottom.it dries and everything ,but its like it's leaking water


The most likely cause is your home vent is clogged and the dryer has little or no air flow. The water is exiting the dryer with the air since there is little air flow which causes the "water leak". Clean your home vent all the way through and your dryer will probably also need a good cleaning. This should take care of the problem. Please rate this post.

Horrible smell inside dryer!


Pull the dryer out and disconnect the vent pipe then, with help, pull the dryer out far enough to tip it up and look under and inside through the bottom. The other area that you might want to check is the door gasket. If it is stinky wipe it down with clorox water to kill any mold that might be there.

Maytag performa dryer takes a long time to dry clothes on auto


What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that way. Good luck hope this helps

Our washer dryer is leaking water after the drying cycle. Everything seems to be fine just after the cycle has finished but in the morning the floor is covered in water. It seems to be coming from the...


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.

Lint filter going off after 5 minutes then shutdown


Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps
