Tumble dryer is leaking

Last updated 18/05/2022 07:23


  • Water leaking on to floor around the dryer

Applies to

  • Condenser dryer
  • Heat pump dryer


1. Ensure the dryer is standing level on the ground by adjusting the feet accordingly

  • Use a spirit level to check whether the machine is level on all its feet.
  • The appliance must be stable on a level, hard floor

2. Clean all filters and the condenser (if accessible) regularly and carefully as described in the user manual.

  • Refer to the article Cleaning tumble dryer filters and condenser
  • It is normal that lint forms during the drying process and it cannot be avoided. This process is very dependent on the load (e.g. new towels, fleece etc.).
  • Excess fluff can contribute to blockages that cause overflowing.

3. If connected directly to a drain (rather than a drawer) ensure the outlet hose is not kinked.

4. Ensure seals around the door and any access flap are free of fluff.

5. Ensure a room temperature higher than +5°C and lower than +35°C. The optimal room temperature to achieve the best drying results is between 19°-24°C.

7. Contact an Authorized Service Centre.

If the above suggestions did not solve the problem, we recommend requesting a visit by a service engineer.
