I had one of the faulty Hotpoint tumble dryers and it was replaced with another Hotpoint tumble dryer (not a condenser one) this morning. The white vent on the back of the machine goes out through a hole in the wall. I've just tried it out - it has been on for 70 minutes drying a batch of towels, however, I've just gone out to take them out of the machine and there are two puddles (about 3" wide) of water just in front/underneath of the two front corners of the machine. Does anybody have any idea what the problem is - don't really want to phone Hotpoint yet until I've heard what people possibly have to say about the water. I've used tumble dryers on and off for over 20 years now and this is the first time that I have seen this.
