If you have access to an air compressor try blowing the blockage out. Apply air pressure from the outlet as to blow the obstruction up the pipe, not down. If at all possible disconnect the pipe from the air conditioner unit as not to blow debris into the unit. Clean up the mess this will make so it does not wind up back in the pipe. If you do not have access to an air compressor the next best thing would be a garden hose. Follow the same procedure as above. Worst case senario replace the pipe. If you need further assistance with this problem feel free to contact me at geokohler@gmail.com I have yahoo phone out so I can even call you free of charge.
The water pressure from the hose should be more then enough to blast the pipe clear. Just make sure you blow the obstruction from the bottom of the pipe upwards! If you try to force it down it will only jam the obstruction deeper making the problem worse. If it is a flexible pipe you can also remove it from the RV and wiggle it around as you apply water/air pressure. If you use air pressure make sure you use eye protection as debris may fly at dangerous speeds!! Also with air follow with water to was the pipe also. Hope this gets you fixed, If not get back to me with any questions you may have.
Sicerely,
George

Well I do have a problem with the drainage, the pipeline will over flow whenwwashing machine is draining water out but I have ran a snake down it and didn't seem to find a clog. But the water splashes out...


There must be enough air allowed into the drainage pipe in order for the water to go down...Apparently there is not enough air entering into the drainage line to allow the water to flow quickly...Check the vent pipe on this drainage line. If these are new machines you may have to increase the diameter of the pipe so that displacement can occur as fast as the water is flowing.

Nissan quest sunroof drain clogged


open your skylight and feel in the front corners for muck stuck infront of the drainage holes. Use a pipe cleaner or other wire to poke through the holes and the water should drain out. It is a little difficult to see the holes but just feel around.

Drainage problem-water is coming out of the air vent inspite of the drainage pipe


The drain pipe may have come loose or it is clogged. I bet on it being clogged. They are not difficult to unclog, using something like a flexible Zip Tie about 18" - 20" long and small enough to fit into the drain tubing. It will help to **** out the clog.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

Water is dripping from the inside unit and not coming out of the drainage pipe outside


The reason the water is coming out of the unit and not the drainage pipe outside is for a few possible reasons.
1 -the drain pipe is clogged / plugged (due to calcium build up,or frozen)
2- the line is kinked or blocked.
check the drain pipe carefully, there may be obstuctions.

Rinse fault f18


F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine. Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor. pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards. If the pump is too old or worn out then it needs to be replaced. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Washer does not drain water


Hello,

The major reason for this to happen is the clogging of the drain pipe of the washing machine. If, even after you clean the drainage hose, the problem persists, there may be other problems.

Next possibility could be that the drainage pump which drives the water out of the drainage hose may be clogged! So, remove the drainage pump and clean it. That should solve the problem. it might also be that the belt of the drainage pump motor may have loosened. If this is the case, you have to simply tighten it.

Take care.

Whirlpool Air Con Drainage issue


Yes, there should be a place for the condensate to drain outside. It's apparently clogged and the drip pan is overfilling. Look for a tube or an opening outside where the condensate should be exiting. This needs to be unclogged.
