AEG Tumble Dryers

The ‘Water Tank Full’ light is on (condenser dryers)

Please make sure you follow these instructions fully. If you have any problems with carrying out this maintenance, please contact us.

Always make sure that you switch off the electricity supply to your dryer before you start any maintenance.

Always check the user manual for details of this for your specific dryer, but the steps below will give you some general guidance.

If your condenser dryer is not plumbed into a waste water pipe (see the “Drainage…” topic), you will need to empty the water-collecting tank when the warning light comes on and ideally after each drying cycle.

Also see the “Emptying and cleaning…” topic.

1. The water tank is normally accessed from the front of the dryer behind the bottom kick-plate, but check for precise details in the user manual for your appliance. Remove the tank by pulling it out of the dryer.

2. Empty the water tank into the sink.

3. Also check the valve on the end of the reservoir has not become blocked up and is free from any dust, fluff or lint debris. Then slide the tank back into the dryer, the warning light should go out.

If the above actions haven’t rectified your issue or you don’t feel confident to undertake them please go to our on-line repair booking page to arrange an engineer visit — https://www.domesticandgeneral.com/repairs.

If you have misplaced or lost your user manual, you can download a replacement manual (please have your model number to hand).
