That's an unusual fault Roger, it doesn't make a lot of sense because water in the drum normally means the washing machine isn't pumping the water out properly. But if that was the case it wouldn't complete a wash cycle without error. During drying water constantly trickles into the condenser chamber at the back. This water mixes with the steam blown into the condenser so that it condenses back into water. The water is then pumped away.

So the pump should be running on the drying cycle, if not constantly, then every so often frequently. If for some reason it wasn't that would allow a buildup of the water. Apart from checking everything is working there's nothing much else to suggest, the heater, fan, water valve and pump all need to operate on the drying cycle.

Had this E18 as well, just seemed to do it at random for no reason, checked discharge pipe for blockages same as Roger but everything was clear.
