Dishwasher drain enters sewer system tapped into waste pipe below kitchen sink
water flowing from kitchen sink passes the opening of the dishwasher pipe
If the dishwasher hose does not loop up higher than the kitchen sink before going down to the bottom of the dishwasher water may flow downhill through the dishwasher drain into the dishwasher
ensure the dishwasher drain hose is screwed to the underside of the kitchen counter, to provide a stop to water flow.
The installation instructions suggest this
but often the dishwasher is at the end of its 'stretch'
and the installer assumes looping is just to use up excess hose, and doesnt.
an extension drain hose is available at most appliance stores

I have a GE washer model GBXR1060T. Some time the water gets over the tub and is spilling on the floor. We have to close the water source valve to stop the water entering in the tub. I see on the side of...

If the water shuts off when you push the timer knob in then the most likely failure is the water level/load size switch or the air tube connecting the air dome and water level switch has developed a hole in it or it may have pulled off from the water level switch. If you have to shut the cold/hot water faucets off in order to stop the water then the water inlet valve has failed open. I added instructions in the image below on how to access the water level pressure switch in the console and how to remove the front panel and raise the top. You will need to inspect the tubing connected to the water level pressure switch and where it connects on the lower side of the outer tub. If you do not find it disconnected or any holes in the tubing, replace the water level switch. richroth_152.jpg

I have a Roper washing machine and it will not drain the water?

Most common causes for a machine that won't drain are:

  1. Clogged drain tube
  2. Clogged drain hose
  3. Clogged drain pump
To diagnose, remove the drain hose from the drain tube and look for water in the tube. A clog will force water back into the machine. If this is clear, some debris could have worked it's way into the drain hose itself. Check this by removing the hose and inspect for a blockage. If both are fine, the problem is most likely in the drain pump. Many times, a piece of paper left in a pocket will work it's way into the drain pump and get lodged.

Ghw9100lw keeps throwing code f/h help

Unplug power cord. First try to clean drain tube by removing bottom cover: uncrew two bolts on each side. clean tube and filter and pump. If it is fixed, you are done.
If problem comes back, unplug power cord as always. Remove top cover and replace water inlet valve (remember to shut off water valves both hot and cold), unplug connectors to blue switch and remove water flowmeter, blow air thru one end and then the other end to remove dirt inside white water flowmeter. If flowmeter bad, replace it.
Last thing may get bad is pressure switch which is brow color valve on the right side of machine.
Good luck

Samsung b1215j code e2 lights up. any clues,

Lo M8

E2 code means it's not draining out the water properly
so look for a blockage at the pump
turn the power off to the machine
take the front bottom plastic cover off so you can access
the drain tube front right small plastic plug bout 13mm in size
get some towels and a shallow tray to catch the water
remove the small plug and drain the water ( takes age by the way )
once you've done that put the small plug back in
and then unscrew the black plastic ( they come in several colours )
pump access plug bout 50mm in size which is just to the left
of the drain tube ,, there may be a small amount of water left
in the pump but it won't be much
Once the pump access plug is removed look inside the hole
and see if you can see anything stuck in there most often
it's coins or other junk thats been left in pockets or very often
if you've kids it's going to be socks or other small clothing items
which have been sucked in to the pump
remove any blockages refit the pucp access plug
turn on the machine and put it thru a quick wash cycle
make sure it drains and spins out !!!! if not then repeat the above
procedure as you've got something else still stuck in there

good luck

I have the GE whdsr209doww- leaks all through cycle at the back draintube. I am going to get a new drain tube , but could it be the pump not holding the water in the tub?

FYI, the pump does not have a valve which prevents the water from leaving the tub during wash cycles.
If you were to remove the drain line from the machine the water in the tub would siphon.
I think you are moving in the right direction by replacing the drain tube. Also inspect the other connections from the tub to the water pump and water pump to drain tube..
Good luck...

When it gets to the rinse cycle, water is coming out of the hose into the sink not allowing it to fill, but their is a continuous dribble of water coming out of the hose into the washer, so whatever goes...

maybe your diverter valve at the pump is stuck open. Its a lilttle red box looking thing under the waasher by the pump. That little red box looking thing is you wax motor that has a plunger hooked up to a small looking piece. That wax motor moves the pluger in and out depending what cycle it is on. So im thinkng that went bad maybe and has the valve stuck open and thge water that is trying to fill is passing thru the pump and thru the drain hose. When the water fills its supposed to be closed tha way it contains all the water when it fills and wont let any get thru pass the pump and thru the drain hose.

I have water leaking from inside the refridgerator (top/back side). Do you know what might cause this and how to solve it? Thanks ...

your drain is may have a catch for your drain where you see leak coming from.that may pull off and you can see if their is trash build up in are going to need to take the panel off the back of freezer.inside back of freezer you will see screws.they will need to come out,if you have ice maker that will need to be removed also.once back panel is off you will see your coils,beneath the coils it will most likely have a sheet of ice.tturn machine off and take a hair dryer and defrost the ice.once ice is gone take a cup of hot water and run thru drain to see if unclogged.repeat if drain is not clear.the ice in drain tube will eventually unclog.I use a steamer.much quicker.

Unless your fridge has a water supply connected to i.e for an ice maker,t about the only place the water could be coming from the condensate waste pipe.

Inside most fridges near the evaporator (the cold part) is a drain hole so that any condensate can drain out. This flows thru a tube to the back of the fridge. Normally this tube will feed into a tray and will evaporate away naturally.

You could have a look at the back of the fridge to see if this is happening.

Pease remember to rate this solution.

Your door will not open if there is water still in the machine. Try "spin only". If this fails, get a bucket, remove your outlet tube from the wall drain, put into bucket. Wall plug off first. After all the water is drained try the door, do not force it.

Then check your outlet filter; the water does not go thru for there may be a block in your filter, or tube from the tub to drain area. Or finally in your pump. Dont forget to refix drain pipe in wall in exact position.

And rate me pl.
