I may have asked this question last year, but here it goes again as the problem has come back.
First off, to set the stage, the dryer is electric and dries clothes just fine, its a KitchenAid that is vented with straight pipe about 12 feet through an exterior wall with a louvered vent cap.
Problem is that sometimes after drying clothes, mabey a couple of days later, my wife opens the dryer and ther is about 1/8" to 1/4" of standing water in the drum and the lint filter is saturated with water.
If have a couple of theories but want to hear some ideas from others.
Also mabey worth noting, the vent pipe is drafted to the exterior wall, the louver cap is opening and closing just fine. The vent pipe leaves the laundry room and runs into the garage then through the exterior brick wall.
As I stated before , the dryer works fine and dries just a quick as the day I purchased it.
And no, I am not drunk and looking at the washing machine as suggested by my brother when I called him.
Many thanks in advance.
