My dryer is drying properly and the removable tank is filling with water as normal. However, the dryer has been recently moved to decorate and moved back and since then water is leaking out of what seems to be somewhere in the front. I wondered maybe if it's a seal gone etc. Can you help?

Re: CONDENSER DRYER IS LEAKING WATER
Make sure it is pushed all the way in but it could be something simple like when it was moved water has splashed out into the inside of your dryer which will make it look like it is leaking had same problems like that with other customers dryers leave it to run and more than likely that it will dry itself out

Hi there. In some cases if your dryer vent tube is bunched up behind the dryer and not extended properly or if vent tube is running up the wall to be vented to the outside it will cause water to build up in dryer vent tube. Make sure your flexible dryer tubing is not full of water or clogged with lint and make sure if you have an extended piece that goes to outside ventilation that that is not clogged with lint as well. Hope this helps you with your drying issues.
Washer dryers use a small spray of water into the dryer 'condenser' to remove the 'steam' - the condenser is a plastic or metal box on the side of the machine the hot air flows through. To remove this spray, the water pump has to run most, but not necessarily all, of the time the machine is drying.
If the water pump is beginning to fail, it may well be ok on the short wash cycle, but seizes after a long time drying. That would make the machine very slowly fill with water on dry - the heater would be on. I would check the drain pump for wear, and if in doubt replace it - check carefully the filter and drain hose for blockages, and i would remove and clean out the dryer condenser which I bet will be full of fluff and half blocked. Every one i ever checked as an engineer was blocked to some degree!
If the machine is filling FAST on dry, check the insulation resistance of the wash water heater and motor and rest of machine. These are complicated faults and you may well need an expensive engineer like me to call!
TRY THIS: TRY THIS: In some cases cleaning the condenser out and drying the unit well will allow the unit to function again. Once a month you need to empty the condenser unit, it is normal for there to be some water in the tubes when you do this, you then have to flush the condenser by pouring water through it in either your sink or tub. Make sure that there is plenty of room around the drier for air circulation; and empty the water container often or reconfigure your pluming arangement to reduce the water left in the container. The circuitry of this unit it sensitive to high humidity and can cause the unit to not function properly. So with condensing dryers you have to work on keeping them clean. Let me know how it goes.

TIP OF THE DAY-- To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.
I also have this problem and is leaking all over my floor underneath...i've only had it a day. the condenser is soppin wet and no water in the tank..i'm dead angry...anyone else have an idea how to fix this mother F*****...thanks...clair
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?
The cold water feeds for condenser cooling and for wash cycle drum fill are controlled by separate solenoid valves (manifolded together at the cold water inlet hose union).
When the solenoid on my condenser coolant valve failed a couple of years back, I got symptoms like yours. A new pair of valves isn't expensive to buy and is a trivial job to fit.
If this is what has been happening, suggest you also inspect the insides of your dryer fan and of the pump - neither of mine took really kindly to having been cooked for hours on end.
