although its been extremly hot in the upper east coast, my electric dryer
seems to have a large amount of condensation on the door when opened after a
drying cycle. We have central air, and the basement is rather cool and dry
with a de-humidifier running. anyone have any reasons??
The clothing is not totally dry. They may be dry enough but they still
have moisture in them. They and the drum are warm and the coolest thing
there must be the door so it gets some condensation.
If you dry longer or set it for "more dry" you won't see this. If you
are satisfied with the dryness of the clothing, don't do anything and don't
I suggest that you clean the inside of your vent pipe or hose. Also check
inside of the vent exhaust on the dryer. There may be an accumulation of
lint inside of there too. Does your drying time seem longer lately?
I tends to agree....poor air flow will account for condensation in the
dryer/room/clothes...venting/venthood/dryer ducts should be checked!!
