If you are having problems with a tumble dryer leaking, first make sure it is on a level surface.
Heat pump models: A small amount of moisture by the condenser compartment or fluff filter is normal. Adjusting the front feet upwards by a few millimetres may help encourage the moisture to collect in the water tank.
Condensation dryers: it may be necessary to adjust the feet at the front so the dryer tilts backwards slightly, allowing the moisture to collect in the water tank.
Models with external condensation drainage/water reservoir at top: disconnect the red hose on the rear of the dryer and extend so it hangs in the drain. Check the hose for kinks, blockages and loops.
Models with external condensation drainage/water reservoir at bottom: to drain water, connect the hose to the nozzle at the bottom of the dryer. Ensure the hose is on the ground or the tumble dryer is on a washing machine.
Models with internal condenser: test for leaks by filling the condenser under a tap. Water should only come out through the nozzle at the back.
Maybe the condenser is dirty: You must clean the condenser regularly, see the user manual fpr details. You can, for example, clean the condenser under the shower.
