There can be multiple reasons for this. If the vent line exhausts to the outside, it is possible that if the vent louvers are stuck open and rain may enter the line when windblown. More common is that dryer vent air is hot and moist due to the water being evaporated from the clothes. If the vent line runs through a cool/cold area, condensation may form in the vent line. If there are sags in the line, condensed water can accumulate in these places.

Water coming out of the back of the dryer

When a dryer usually produces visable water from any part of it's self, the suggestion would be a completely restricted vent line. Such restrictions could be from nests from animals, excess lint, a dip in the vent hose causing lint and water to collect. Since the dryer is leaking water, it is heating and therefore creting steam in an effort to dry the cloths, with a clogged vent the steam has no where to escape to and thus condenses within the dryer and leaks out. The vent needs to be checked by a wualified vent servicing company from the back of the dryer to the point of exit of the home. Pleazer Appliance...

Puddles of water forming under the unit

clean out the dryer and the vent line,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside where the motor is and if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower,also check the outside vent to make sure nothing is blocking it.the hot moist air isn't blowing outside,it's stuck in the dryer and vent line,all a dryer does is remove the moisture out of the clothes by moving air,if the air can't move correctly themoisture has to go somewhere.let me know how you make out,also if it's gas do this once a year,electric once every two years so you don't have a fire

Dryer vent filled with water. Large loads would not dry.

If the drying problem is caused by poor venting/air circulation, then things probably won't improve until that situation is remedied. Check out the link I am attaching. It contains dryer venting requirements. Hope this helped and I'm sorry for your trouble. Best wishes.

Dryer vent pipe has condensation issues.

With all of that condensation I'd be suprised if your clothes were getting dry at all. A lot of times cleaning the dryer vent is not enough. It sounds like your vent is really long. Long vent lines have a large potential for lint clogging. Check the airflow at the end of the vent at the side of the house. Your'e probably getting very little. For a run like that we always attach a electric leaf blower to the dryer side of the hose and let it run wide open for about 5 minutes. This should help to break up any clogged up lint. You can check your results at the end of the line on the ground. If it doesn't do much you may want to consider replacing the vent hose. Hope this helps.. Thanks

Not drying

I know you cleaned the lint vent but your vent hose is clogged or damaged and there is no air exchange thru the dryer Air can only hold 100% humidity. You could dry your clothes for 10 hours but the air in the dryer is saturated with water and can not hold anymore so your clothes wont dry. Check behind your dryer and Ill bet the vent line is damaged. The problem is the air is not getting out of the dryer. Check the flapper at the end of the vent line. With the dryer running go to the end of the vent hose and there will be no air coming thru.
