Condensation on Controls or Display - Front Load Dryer

Possible Solution

Does the household vent need to be cleaned?

Condensation can appear on the control or display when the air is unable to be vented properly.  This air damp, humid air will back up and condensate on the controls.  Venting going to the outside of the home needs to be cleaned every one to two years or as required when dry performance has decreased. Dryers need proper airflow to the outside for clothing to dry and for optimal performance. 

Is the Lint Screen Clean? 

The lint screen will be located either on top of the dryer or in the door opening of the dryer. It is essential to clean your lint screen after every use. The lint screen should also be cleaned of detergent/fabric softener residue occasionally. Click the link below for more information.
