Condenser Dryer Still Filling Room With Moisture

Hi, I have a Hotpoint condenser dryer, which has always leaked hot moisture into the room. I had never owned one of these before, so as it always seemed to fill the container with masses of water, I just assumed that the moisture in the room was normal. However, everyone I speak to who has a condenser tells me it never causes any moisture in the room at all. Since day one mine has caused all windows to instantly mist up and all surfaces in the room to be visibly wet. But it does still produce reasonable amounts of water in the container as one would expect it to. Unfortunately I have only realised this flaw now that my warranty has expired. Can anyone advise on what might be wrong? Thanks, Craig.

If all else is ok try ventilation, I know it sounds obvious, however all homes are different and perhaps leaving a window ajar might help. (of course do not leave the house if the window is opened). one other thing try experimenting with different loads as some washers have a higher capacity than the dryer, so for example a 7kg load in a washer would not transfer to the capacity of a 6kg dryer if you could get all the cothes in. Even if the 2 items have the same capacity the wet clothes take up more space, and the dryer is more efficient with some room. Also try a higher or extra spin depending on the type of clothes being washed. Tony

Hi, It's a Condenser dryer, so it does not have an exhaust. It condenses the moisture back into water internally and stores it in a removable container, which I need to empty after every use. Cheers.

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?

Code F4 5 LED lights on a Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer

The F4 error code and 5 LED lights on a Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer typically indicate a problem with the moisture sensor or the condenser unit. The moisture sensor is responsible for detecting the amount of moisture in the drum and the condenser unit is responsible for removing the moisture from the air.
To troubleshoot this problem, you can try the following:
  1. Clean the condenser unit: remove any lint or debris that may have accumulated in the condenser unit. Make sure the condenser unit is clean and free of blockages.
  2. Check the moisture sensor: the sensor may be clogged or not working properly. Clean the sensor and make sure it is connected securely.
  3. Check the air flow: make sure that the air flow to the condenser unit is not blocked.
  4. Check the drain hose: make sure the drain hose is not clogged or kinked, and that the water is draining properly.
  5. Check the water container: make sure the water container is empty and not overfull.
  6. If the problem persists, it is recommended to consult a professional technician to check the dryer or contact the Hotpoint customer service for assistance.
It is important to note that these instructions may vary depending on the dryer model, so it is best to consult the user manual for specific instructions.

LG WM3431H during dry cycle condensation builds on inside of machine and then underneath, cleaned all lint out already

usually do to condensation which is a result of bad venting in the blower, the tubes, the glides, and the door, and even a bad moister sensor check it with a meter for continuity and for amount of ohms but at a high temperature not room temperature

Hi,
No I think you will get further by removing all the refrigerant, and pulling a good vacuum on the system... there seems to be dirt or moisture in the system...make sure to run the refrigerant through a filter/dryer before reinstalling into the system again...

My new hot point gas dryer takes several hours to dry a med load of clothes. It has now started to gather moisture on the inside of the door, when I open it. I keep the filter clean, sometimes twice when...

Your dryer is not venting like it needs to, or the room that the dryer is located is too air tight.

Clean out the outside louver for the dryer. If you can, remove it so that you can see down the pipe. Remove as much lint buildup as you can. Go back inside, and remove the dryer vent hose from the wall, and again, remove as much lint as you can. Then do the same with the vent hose at the dryer connection. Reconnect everything, and it should start working better.

I mentioned the room being too airtight because it can happen, but is a rarity if dryer has not been relocated and problem occurs. Dryers take in room air, heat it, send it through the drum, and then out the dryer vent. If the room is air tight, then it won't be able to move much air, and cant' expel the moist air like it needs to.

Does not dehumidify

Hello. I am here to help. Let me begin by saying that a dehumidifier only needs to be operated if the humidity in your home is too high. If the humidity is low, the humidifier will have to work really hard to try and remove water from it.

Here is an overview of how the dehumidifier is supposed to work:

When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.

Splendid washer and condensing dryer combo

Since the clothes ARE getting hot, it's not the tripped breaker(s) mentioned in Solution #2, because these would cut off power to the heating element(s).
Since it's a Condensing dryer, it can't be an obstructed exhaust hose, either (as there is no dryer exhaust).
Remove the lint filter(s). Holding it over a sink, see if water flows through it. The waxes in "dryer sheets" clog lint filters and, even though invisible to the eye, can totally obstruct the air flow and stop a dryer from drying. Wash it with soap and water.
Question: Does your dryer have a small drain hose leading out the back and going down a drain? If it's clogged, the dryer can't remove any more moisture. If there's no drain, then you have an internal "catch tank" to collect the water evaporated out of the clothes. It's supposed to be emptied after every load. Empty it.
If that's not the problem, I suspect your condenser is not working (removing moisture from the hot stream of air blowing through the wet clothes. This could be because: (1) It's clogged - Take out the boxy thing (technically called a heat exchanger) made of thin aluminum "fins" or tubes, and wash it off in the sink. or (2) The little fan that cools the condenser isn't running. In this case you'll need to call a technician. Good luck
