Emptying your tumble dryer’s water tank

If your water tank is full, your tumble dryer will not operate. Here’s how to remove and empty it:

  1. A warning symbol will appear on the display of your tumble dryer at the end of every program, reminding you to empty the water tank. If the water tank fills up while a program is running, the warning indicator starts flashing and the machine will pause. You should empty the water tank as soon as the warning symbol appears and then press the start button to continue the program.
  2. Your water tank will either be located at the top of the machine in a drawer or at the bottom of the machine, behind the kick plate. Check your user manual if you are not sure where your water tank is located.
  3. Remove the water tank carefully by pulling it towards you gently.
  4. Empty the water that has collected in the tank.
  5. If there is lint accumulation in the funnel of the water tank, clean it under running water.
  6. Carefully replace the tank by sliding it back into the tumble dryer.

Cleaning the drying sensor

  1. If your tumble dryer model has a drying sensor, it will be located behind the lint filter in the front of the door opening. Check your manual if you are not sure if your tumble dryer has a drying sensor.
  2. Allow the machine to cool down if it is still hot from being used.
  3. Wipe the metal surfaces of the sensor bars with a soft cloth.
  4. Do not use abrasive cleaning products, you can dampen the cloth with vinegar to clean.
  5. Ensure you have dried the sensor bars with a soft cloth again before using your tumble dryer.
  6. You should aim to clean the drying sensors every three months to ensure they function effectively.
