Tip & How-To about Dryers

How do run your dyer without an exhaust leading outside.

Step one: Take a 5 gallon bucket and fill it 1/4 with water.
Step two: Get a piece of the flexible pipe and bend it to sit over the bucket.
Step three: Get a metal coat hanger and bend it to hold the tubing level with the top of the bucket.
Step four: ENJOY! It's now ready. Turn the dryer on and the lint will get stuck in the water. However this will generate a lot of humidity.

We'll call the 5 gallon bucket 5GB and the 6, 6GB
Fill 5GB and pour 5 gallons in 6GB.
Fill 5GB again and use that to top off 6GB, leaving 4 gallon in 5GB
Dump out 6GB and put the 4 gallons that are in 5GB into 6GB
Then fill 5GB and you have exactly 9 gallons of water.
Or bring him 11 gallons and tell him you did bring him 9 gallons and some extra!

how do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it

Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent

If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

GE washer WSXH208AWW does not spin and drain out.

Please, make sure your machine is unplugged before you get started. After removing the panel, on the front right side of my machine there was a round white pipe with a screw plug in the middle. The filter is inside that pipe. The actual filter is a basket shaped piece attached to the back of my screw plug. Before I started to work, I looked inside the machine and found a black flexible hose coming from the drum to the filter pipe. I found the drain pipe; mine is gray and attached to the back of the pump. It runs out the back of my machine to the drain. My pump is this little rectangular shaped box attached to the right side of the filter pipe. Like my machine yours probably has water in it. Just know it can get messy in a hurry when you open the plug. I drained out about 12 or 13 gallons of wash water. I had two small buckets, a five gallon bucket, and my wet dry vac just in case. I used the smaller buckets to catch the water as it came out of the machine, and emptied them into the 5 gallon bucket as needed. I very carefully unscrewed the plug, turning it slowly and keeping a little inward pressure on it so the water wouldn’t come gushing out all at one time. Mine came out with quite a bit of force, so be ready. The plug was screwed in firmly (finger tight), but not so tight that I need a tool to open it. I did it without an extra set of hands but an extra set certainly can help when a bucket needs emptied. After all the water had drained out, I removed the plug and cleaned out everything that was in the basket and pipe. There is a small hole in the inside of the drain pipe where the pump attaches to it. I slid my finger inside the hole to feel for anything that might have made its way into the pump. You can feel the impeller for the pump there. I did find some candy wrappers and removed them. Look again at the two hoses (the black one coming from the drum, and the gray drain hose), you will see a clamp on each one attaching them to the filter and pump respectively. I don’t know the technical term for the clamps (I call them compression clamps). If you squeeze the ends of the clamp with a pair of pliers you can loosen the clamp and slide it back so you can pull the hose off. I was glad that I did this because I found a piece of pencil that had made its way past the pump impeller and was stuck in the exit side of the pump. I’m surprised my pump hadn’t burned out. After you feel certain you have removed the debris from the machine and hoses, make sure the two hoses are reattached and firmly clamped if not they will leak. Slide the filter plug back in the pipe and tighten firmly (finger tight). Plug in your machine and hopefully this takes care of the problem. I didn’t put the front panel on right away, I wanted to make sure everything was working and the hoses didn’t leak. Good luck, I hope this gives you enough detail to get the job done.
