Whirlpool Duet Sport Elec Dryer-Water in vent hose
Model Number: WED8300SW0 Brand:
5 - 10 years
Duet Sport Elec Dryer (not a steam model) produces about 1oz.(measured) of water in the vent hose for every hour of run time. Previous repairs done, troubleshooting for Error Code F-02, tested everything out to the point of needing to replace the Console Control Panel, did so, which fixed the display and selection of cycles issues. Runs normally except for water in vent hose bend. Cleaned vent, from dryer exhaust to roof top vent, still collects water in vent hose. Followed Tech sheet diagnostics on pg.7 for Test #3a Exhaust Thermistor, (exhaust temps check out ok). Did Test#4 on pg. 8, Moisture Sensor, checked out ok. I've upped the drying mode(Test #4a, pg.9) in hopes of drying more efficiently (unit has always been overly optimistic regarding est. dry times), but still have the water in the vent hose issue. One note: whenever entering the diagnostic test mode, the Error Code F-02 still appears and won't let me make any changes until I press the +/- buttons a few times to display the normal 88 code, then everything else works as advertised. Any ideas on how to fix the water accumulation issue would be appreciated.
