Dryer vent has water in it?

I noticed water leaking to my floor during the drying cycle, so I went to the basement to investigate. I live in an old house that I bought, everything probably isn't up to code. Running from the center of my house all the way to the basement wall i

Answers:

It’s normal to have some condensate, especially when it’s cold outside. The warm hot dryer air is hitting that cold outside air and condensation happens.

does the outside vent blow hot damp air?
it might be blocked
the vent hose should be the shortest distance required betw the appliance and the outside vent,, look also to see if lint packs the appliance hole inside the dryer might be jammed up decreasing

the fan velocity

You cannot, nor should you, use any flexible vent pipe on a dryer other than the connection from the dryer to the vent pipe behind the dryer. The vent running down through the floor and outside should be rigid. Your best choice in rigid aluminum pipe. Otherwise you will always have condensation in the pipe and flexible pipe will trap the water and eventually fill to the point it will sag and completely stop the flow of air.

Way too long, as-is, with 'Lord-knows how many bends and sags.

Exit the house at the nearest possible outside wall, soffit, or roof, which I suspect is like half the distance you currently run. Or relocate your laundry to do so. Use smooth, rigid vent ducting if at all possible. By the way, your dryer will work far better after you correct this.

You would be right, condensation. For that dryer, that junk is OK, not my preference mind you. I would go to heavy stuff as you ar suggesting, all pipe seams at the top, all joints sealed and then taped. But the most important things with a run that long for a dryer, are clean out points so you can deal with the lint clean up and that it is angled, so it drains down to your vent. The vent has to be x amount off the ground in case of snow and such to, so keep that in mind. If you do run a new line, keep the drainage in mind and move the outlet if needed.

it needs to vent to the outside, not the inside.

take it out using towel

The dryer should be set up as directly to the vent as possible--ideally straight through the exterior wall. Those long dryer hoses mean that the dryer is not in the right location. And they are a fire hazard because of collecting lint which sometimes ignites.
