I have a flexible duct that fits from the back of the dryer to the wall. The distance between the wall vent and the machine vent only about 6 inches apart. Its a very tight area to work in. I managed to lean the dryer over to remove the flexible duct and foun water in it. I suctioned the water out of the flexible duct. I rehooked the duct. After sitting the dryer back on the floor from the leaning position I discovered water on the floor under the dryer. I tried drying th clothes and it is stiil not drying the clothes
