I am getting reports that the plastic water container inside the door of Hoover or Candy condenser tumble dryers often needs replacing. Fortunately they are very easy to fit, though you wouldn’t expect that anything would go wrong with one in the first place.
What is going wrong?
Sometimes cracks have appeared somewhere on the container. Other’s say that the plastic had split at the bottom, or that it just started leaking. This part fits right inside the door and collects all the condensed water from the drying process. It is subject to constant heating up and cooling down, which could be why they can crack or become stressed.
Buy a replacement water container
Ransom Spares are my recommended appliance parts company. They have a very friendly and helpful website. If you have any questions or concerns about replacing a water container you can add a comment here, or ask over at Ransom Spares.
Even though they have different entries in the spare parts database they are exactly the same part for all those dryers because they are all made by the same manufacturer and share a lot of their design. However, it doesn’t hurt to make sure and Ransom Spares have an easy to use model compatibility checker on each page. So all you need do is type in your model number to make sure it’s the right one for you.
