Beko condenser dryer not drying properly.
It seems to be doing everything, spinning, heat, pumping etc but not really seeing properly. Have spent a Sunday afternoon on you tube
The question is, the reservoir at the bottom of the machine, which is pumped up to the isn't emptying there's a good 1 cm of water in it. I imagine the pump can't get all out but wondering if this pool here is showing the pump is only running at 50% hence why the clothes aren't fully drying ??

Just to say it is actually pumping dinner water up to the tank and I've taken the pump apart and it's clean.

It's a heat pump dryer, so no plumbing.
After a lot of google and youtube some is normal.
It seems to be a condenser problem, with 3 appliance people saying no your need a refrigeration engineer.
So after 6 hrs of pulling it apart and cleaning it, it's got the same drying power and a weezy old man blowing your on socks.
Off to the scrap yard and get a new one.
